Tranny teacher gets $60k for not being called by her preferred pronoun 'they'

Politically-designated faux victimhood is a moneymaking enterprise!
Leo Soell, a “transmasculine” 5th-grade teacher at Hall Elementary School in Oregon elementary school, was awarded $60,000 by the Gresham-Barlow School District as compensation for harassment she claims to have suffered on the job, including being referred to by the wrong pronoun.
The problem is her preferred pronoun isn’t simple pronouns like “he” or “she” or even “it”. Her preferred pronoun is “they”.
Leo SoellSoell was born a woman, but after getting breast cancer in late 2014, she had her breasts amputated to create a more masculine appearance and changed her name to Leo.
Soell now identifies as “transmasculine” and “genderqueer,” meaning she does not consider herself to be male or female, but as gender-neutral, neither male nor female. If a student asked Soell’s sex, she says she was ordered to reply it was a private matter not suitable for discussion at school.
Soell claims after she returned from medical leave in May 2015, she was subjected to relentless harassment from her co-workers — that they persisted in calling her hurtful terms like “Miss Soell,” “lady,” and “she.” She claimed one teacher screamed at her in the hallway that her gender choice was offensive to God, another smeared Vaseline on Soell’s cabinets, and that others conspired to prevent her from using the school’s lone gender-neutral bathroom.
The school conducted an internal investigation after Soell complained, but found no proof of harassment. The school then cut a deal with Soell that she be referred to by her preferred pronoun of “they.” But Soell said the harassment didn’t stop, so she finally hired an attorney to file an official complaint.
So the school district officials agreed to pay Soell $60,000 in compensation for her emotional distress.
The officials also agreed to adopt new policies to make the school district more transgender-friendly, including requiring all teachers to refer to their co-workers by their preferred names and pronouns, and ensuring that transgender employees and students’ bathroom demands are met. Teachers who refuse to comply with the pronoun command may be fired.

This They can kiss my grits. This is what Obama has let loose on the nation. Teaching our kids should be someone who is not perverted. There are laws on the books that say so. Michelle or Michael Obama should watch him or herself.

Sounds like there are some very normal folks at that school by the way other teachers and staff reacted. Why do we cater to the 1% especially when they are most clearly crazy?

What a waste of limited school funds and time and what a confusing learning environment for young impressionable minds. Wonder what the ten year olds it “teaches” have to call it and wonder what the poor families have to deal with when the bewildered child comes home from school. Ugh!

If “they” have a penis, then “they” would be a HE. If “they” have a vagina, then “they” would be a SHE. Maybe we should just go back to basic Health Classes so these mentally challenged “gold diggers” would understand what “THEY” are ! This is THE most ignorant, moronic, media pushed bullshit I have ever seen in my 55 years on this earth ! OMG , I hate to think what they are teaching the children in the shadows, images in their little perfect crystal clean minds, that is not getting attention is this government controlled school system we… Read more »

You better catch up on the new biology that comes with the Gender Bending chemicals in our air, food, and water today. A nurse friend of mine told me she has seen the numbers of male babies born with what is called hypospadias, a deformed penis go up dramatically in the last few years. Hypospadias means that there is an opening other than on the end where it normally would be. Some of them have both vagina and penis, now what do you call that? Our government and business have been playing the Sorcerers Apprentice with chemicals? And the results… Read more »

Interesting . . . this teacher could never be fired for causing severe confusion and distress to the children under their tutelage, but another teacher can be fired for not calling “they” the “proper pronoun.” How do you teach children, when the old rules are thrown out the window, and now anything goes/

This whole idiocy about which personal pronouns to use is most offensive.
If I’m ever in a “go-around” situation where this exercise collective stupidity arises, I just say to refer to me as “Your Excellency”.

Simple enough problem to solve: Don’t talk to they or about they.
That’s what we’d do. (We prefer to always use the royal we when speaking of ourselves.) 🙂

the ‘special snowflake’ got “they” feelings hurt when folks thought she was a she because she was a she when she left for surgery, only to return wanting to be called “they”….maybe she’s subconsciously mourning her lack of breasts…hence, “they”.
perpetual victim-hood is very profitable

This world has definitely gone nuts. My good friend who is normally sensible had a conversation with me the other day and he said he thought that gay men would make better nannies for children so that the husband didn’t get attracted to a pretty au pair and make the wife jealous. I said but what about the example of a man who doesn’t act like a man and he said that the parental influence should override that if they were responsible. I then said well, what about if the man learnt self restraint and the women curbed any envy?… Read more »

pretty sad he thinks sodomites should raise people’s children…
another possibility, the couple can rearrange their finances so mom could stay home instead of paying someone to stay home to raise their chiildren.
I believe it’s what you do with attractions that make you responsible or not…in today’s society, people are encouraged to act on attractions rather than behave responsibly, show restraint, or practice willpower.
if a man won’t control himself around women, then what’s the point of the man having the responsibility of marriage?

A lot of what we are seeing today has to do with gender bending toxins and chemicals showing up in the food chain and environment. I have seen articles talking about fish and amphibians changing sex from chemicals in the water. A society cannot allow their new born babies to be born with 300 toxins in their blood, it is crazy, and just asking for a lot of freaks and Frankenstein’s to show up!.. —One lady in this group said she was getting tired of these Tranny stories, lady get ready, they will soon be ringing your door bell!

Everyone is affected but everyone is different so some will be mentally affected, while some are born with Hypospadies! And some of them hermaphrodites, both male and female organs. Australia reports Hypospadies numbers doubled in resent years, Finland reports a three fold increase, USA reports numbers had doubled as well as the severity, and European numbers also doubled. And all of the countries related the change in numbers to an increase in gender influencing chemicals such as BHT from Plastics, and an increase in insecticides… Half of our children today have a chronic disease and on medications for life.

Paul . . . your comments are right on target. As time goes by we see more and more physical diseases. I myself suffer from Fibromyalgia . . . who in the heck suffered from that back in the 1950’s or 1960’s ? Where did it come from? Doctor’s are baffled, and there is no real cure or medicine to control it . . they only give pain medication to abate the symptoms. You are definitely well tuned in to the problems that face modern man.

Thank you for your complements, and keen incite Anti Lulu. Like you I use my own observations of the historical passing parade as a tiller to guide me through the many hazards of life. Because our press, government and one size fits all medical system seem headless? And they fail to learn from, warn us about, and eliminate what simple common sense tells any fool! Don’t breath this in, or ever put it in your mouth, or touch it, skull and crossbones substances…! Only the suicidal would take a spoonful of toxic, poisonous, heavy metal laden syrup every day!

Hey Auntie; Have you considered turmeric? I, too, suffer from chronic arthritis, RH and gout and I’m going to give it a try. What can it hurt, right?
I learned how to make curry from a mozlem ex-friend and love it. In fact, it’s on the menu for next week…lol
I watched a video, this morning, on the virtues of it and it makes perfect sense that those, living in India, have little problems with arthritis, cancer and Fibromyalgia; amongst other maladies.
