We are facing a major crisis in our country. We are faced with the prospect of having to watch every word that comes out of our mouths. If we are not careful, we could find ourselves in financial straits.
The desire to treat everyone fairly has driven us to act as if we have to abandon our own opinion. If we are told something that we know not to be true, we are to look the other way and go along.
This is what teachers are being told they are to do with one of their confused coworkers.

A female elementary school teacher who says she neither identifies as male nor female has been awarded $60,000 in a settlement with her school district after she lodged a complaint that her co-workers continued to refer to her as a woman and wouldn’t call her “they.”
The 25-year-old teacher at Hall Elementary School, who now goes by the name Leo Soell, had told her friends in 2013 that she did not feel that she identified as either male or female. However, she did not reveal her feelings to her employers with the Gresham-Barlow School District, who continued to refer to her by her female name and pronoun.
This female teacher has come to the conclusion that she has no real gender at all and therefore is to be referred to as “they” rather than “her.” But what if you think that this is a ridiculous notion? Well, just get over it or get out.

According to The Oregonian, the agreement includes a $60,000 payment to Soell for emotional distress and attorneys fees. Officials also agreed to make gender neutral restrooms available at all schools within the district. Hall Elementary School now has only gender neutral restrooms, and teachers are required to call Soell “they” under the possibility of discipline or dismissal.
We just keep going down the rabbit’s hole. At least we can have tea with the Hatter when we get to the bottom.
