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

Rate this post

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.

     
    • Hey-for 60 Grand,you can call me whatever floats yer boat. Easiest way I’ve seen to make money,and thanks to the imposter-in-chief,it’s LEGAL!

       
  2. another MENTALLY ILL person who probably voted for o’bama

     
  3. That lawsuit has set a dangerous precedent for what is to come.

     
  4. 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?

     
  5. Not IT?

     
  6. 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!

     
  7. 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 call “public schools.” We need to start acting like concerned parents !!! HELLO, The school is NOT you FKG babysitter! All my children are very active in their own children’s schools, sports, school council, PTA, etc., I afraid that some of the last generation were just not taught the basics…What our children didn’t learn at home, for one reason or another, be it both parents HAVING to work to make ends meet, or other problems, our kids use to be able to learn in the school, from their teachers, teachers mind you that wasn’t concerned if they were getting out before the traffic starts or what their friends were tweeting, or what status their friends were on facebook and more concerned if “our” children were understanding the teachings of the day, if they were struggling in any areas. Mind you there ARE good teachers out there and I know some personally, I know how hard they struggle to make sure that all their children in their classes understand and grasp what they are teaching….but, OH the others teachers, the ones that think they need to be in a fashion competition with the children they teach..you ALL know the ones! They are not just female, the male teachers too, then we have the pedophiles that some how creep into our school systems…I could go on and on… OH yes lets not forget about how all this crap started, you remember, first they took out of the “public” school system things like Home Ec., basic health classes, sports in some schools, gym class, the list is almost endless. They have been making idiots of our children and we just blindly stand by and say, “Oh, it just that the times are changing, we have to change.” Just a side note: I do not in any way care if someone wants to be called “they” or if they are gay, I have lots of gay friends, family members, etc., I actually have an extremely diverse family, in ethnicity among other things. I don’t care what color a persons skin is, or if they want to be another gender than that which they are born with, it matters not until they start telling me or my children or grandchildren “how to think” or “what to think” then, “Houston we have a problem!”

     
    • 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 are showing up and they are very weird, and very strange! Spend the day at Walmart, and you will see them on parade!

       
  8. 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/

     
  9. 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”.

     
    • SapphireSunday.

      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.) 🙂

       
  10. 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? This world is crazy

       
      • 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?

    How about “weirdo”? Covers both, don’t it?

     
  12. And he asked him, “What is thy name?” And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion: for we are many.” (Mark 5:9)

     
  13. I don’t know what common sense company or school district would hire her with this much baggage esp. her potential threats for lawsuits over “they” feelings….lawyers are making big bucks today.

     
  14. I’m just curious, but is this $60 thousand out pay to ,..’they’,..covered by insurance, or does it come out of school funds,.?

     
    • I suspect that the taxpayers in the school district are on the hook for this amount!

       
      • Hadenoughalready

        I wonder if the taxpayers would object to footing the bill for a deep woods, extended field trip with this “teacher” – shovels included…

    Sounds like a fake story to me. Just to plant the seed of fear against resistance.

  17. 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!
    These are toxins and chemicals that we humans were never exposed to in all of history. It is like we are running a scientific experiment and we are the lab rats waiting to see the results? Trannies like this one probably number in the hundreds of thousands or more.
    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.
    The government is not doing the job that they claimed they could with the EPA and the FDA. And things are only going to get much worse as time goes by…

     
    • While studies have shown that plastics and the drugs we take, e.g., birth control pills, are contaminating our water system with chemicals, especially the female hormone estrogen (see “Birth-control pills and other chemicals producing intersex Franken-fish“), you are blaming everything on that. If it’s plastic or chemicals in our water supply, then it should affect EVERYONE. But that’s not the case. Nor do chemicals explain why the elites are Hell-bent on their LGBT agenda, and why so many people succumb to the media-govt. brainwashing.

       
      • 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. Which in the years I am talking about they were considered only an old persons disease like heart, cancer, cholesterol, arthritis, diabetes. and asthma. I know chemicals do not account for all of them, but chemicals are everywhere and in everything and people need to be very concerned.
        —We cannot help but be affected, and we are seeing the evidence right in front of us. I saw the late forties, fifties and sixties, and there was zero obesity in those years, and few were fat.
        —And Zero school shooting because zero kids on psych drugs! Then in 1966 and the Whitmen shooting, he was on one of the first psych drugs, Valium. And didn’t understand his own behavior? Stabbing his mother and wife to death, whom he loved, then shooting to kill as many people as possible which was unknown!
        There were only a few autoimmune diseases and few chemicals anywhere. In 2003 there were 65 autoimmune diseases, and that number doubled since then to over 150 autoimmune diseases, an epidemic…Autoimmune disease triggers can be as simple as having a car wreck, losing your job, or getting a divorce…And HHS says they are an environmentally caused problem.

         
        • 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! And yet that is exactly what we do via eating, breathing, drinking, bathing, and vaccinations…Then when we become sick, we go to the very people who were supposed to protect us from these poisons. To be diagnosed, and all too often told, as I am sure you remember? When Fibromyalgia first appeared the patients were told “this is all in your head, and here is a Prozac prescription for that, which is obvious quackery!”
            —And an obvious sign that our medical system is getting past its usefulness. And they need to be relegated to the emergency room, where they excel at bone setting, where they started out, as barbers!

            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.
