After the school board passed a “transgender-affirming” pronoun policy, an Iranian Christian father came up with brilliant personal pronouns for himself and his children that may have the administrators regretting their decision.
The Loudon County Public School Board, notorious for leading the push for ultra-progressive policies in Virginia schools, is once again making headlines for implementing yet another “woke” prescription. However, their latest measure wasn’t without major pushback.
During a board meeting, district officials passed a reform that allows students who identify as transgender to not only access school facilities and groups of their perceived gender but will also force teachers and staff to address them by their preferred names and pronouns, The Blaze reports. Incredibly, the rule doesn’t allow for exemptions based on one’s religious beliefs, leaving educators to choose between their convictions and their jobs.
For three hours, the Loudon County Public School Board was forced to listen to angry parents and community members railing against their progressive political policies. Of course, the board members were probably still certain of their support for the transgender-affirming rule, that is, until one parent stepped up to the microphone with the perfect response.
Introducing himself as an Iranian Christian immigrant, Dimis Christophe lambasted the board’s decision. In fact, he compared their indoctrination efforts to those of the Ayatollahs.
“Dear disgraced board members. You think you’re woke? Well, I’m going to wake you a little bit more,” he began. “I’m a Chaldean married to an Armenian. We are minorities of the minorities in this country. Our ancestors survived massacres of the church and ISIS. I grew up in Iran as a Christian. And when we went to school, as much as the government wanted to indoctrinate us, the teachers didn’t allow it. The teachers did their job to teach us the curriculum: science, math, biology, etc. They didn’t try to shove propaganda down our throats like the Ayatollahs did.”
Christophe continued, reminding the board and educators that their only job is to ensure that the children in their care are sufficient in academics, not social policy or politics.
“Now in the 21st century, we have social justice warrior so-called teachers trying to shove their garbage ideology down our kids’ throats,” he continued. “These are our children, not yours. Their job is not to raise my child or my neighbor’s child. Their job is to teach our kids math, science, biology, literature, and that it’s — not ideology. Now you want to push garbage crap like pronouns? How the hell does that keep a kid from succeeding? How does that help them? Does that teach them how to act?”
At the conclusion of his speech, Christophe decided to fight fire with fire. Using their own progressive policy against them, he notified that the administration must refer to his sons as “king”, his daughter as “queen”, and himself as “master” as their personal pronouns.
“You want to push that garbage down my kids’ throats? I will make you call my kids ‘king’ and ‘queen’. That’s how you will address my sons and my daughter. And when you look at me, you call me ‘master’. Do you want that pronoun to be in your mouth when you look at me?” he asked.
Christophe was eventually cut off due to the time limit, prompting him to calmly walk away and sit down. As soon as he took his seat, the flood of parent-after-parent criticizing the board’s policies resumed.
The district’s policies have become so politically invasive that fifth-grade teacher Laura Morris announced her resignation in the middle of the same meeting, citing her refusal to indoctrinate students with lessons in Critical Race Theory.
Sobbing, Morris said, “School board, I quit! I quit your politics. I quit your trainings and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas on our most vulnerable constituents — the children. I will find employment elsewhere. I encourage all parents and staff in this country to flood the private schools.” She also added that she was previously told during “so-called equity trainings that white, Christian, able-bodied females currently have the power in our schools and, quote, ‘This has to change.'”
The school board is not only pushing harmful propaganda on our children but also setting teachers up to fail. How do they expect a teacher or administrator to keep up with all their students’ separate pronouns, especially when some may change theirs on a daily basis due to how they’re feeling that day?
The time wasted asking each student for their pronouns and trying to keep up with this ever-changing spectrum is absurd. Parents must stand up to these officials pushing politics on our children before it’s too late. We vastly outnumber them. It’s merely a matter of using our voting power, tax dollars, and pulling our children out of their schools.
