Florida Parents Outraged After Teacher Demands Her 5th Graders Use Gender Neutral Pronouns

Tyler Durden's picture

Over the past year or so, we've observed in amazement as one 'institution of higher indoctrination' (a.k.a. "university") after another came up with replacement pronouns for politically incorrect 'hate speech' like 'freshman'.  Vanderbilt even forced its teachers and administrators to wear name tags defining their pronouns just so there would be absolutely no gender confusion that might lead to a nasty "triggering" event or unnoticed "microaggression (see: Vanderbilt University Name Placards For Faculty Offices Will Now Include "Preferred Pronouns").

 

But, while such things are expected from our millennial youth on progressive college campuses, parents of a 5th grade class in Tallahassee, Florida were somewhat shocked when they received a letter from "Mx. (pronounced Mix)" Bressack demanding that her students only refer to her using gender neutral terms like 'Mx.' instead of 'Ms.' and "they, them, their" instead of "he, his, she, hers."  Per the Tallahassee Democrat:

"One thing that you should know about me is that I use gender neutral terms. My prefix is Mx. (pronounced Mix). Additionally, my pronouns are "they, them, their" instead of "he, his, she, hers". I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural, but my experience students catch on pretty quickly. We're not going for perfection, just making an effort! Please feel free to reach out to me or administration if you have any questions. My priority is for all of my students to be comfortable in my classroom and have a space where they can be themselves while learning."

 

Of course, it didn't take long for the parents of Mx. Bressack's students to post their outrage to a Facebook group called “Tally Moms Stay Connected." One mom bluntly asked  "is this fucking for real?" while another dad wondered whether it might makes sense to just stick to teaching math and science if your job is to be a math and science teacher.

 

Meanwhile, principal Paul Lambert assured parents that Mx. Bressack enjoyed his full support but that "teachers in our district will not be allowed to use their influence in
the classroom to advance any personal belief or political agenda."

"We support her preference in how she's addressed, we certainly do," Lambert said. "I think a lot of times it might be decided that there is an agenda there, because of her preference — I can tell you her only agenda is teaching math and science at the greatest level she can."

 

Lambert acknowledged there have been some calls to the Canopy Oaks front office regarding the letter.

 

"There has been some (contact from concerned parents), the thing that has brought good understanding is, it's not a preference that's being applied to anyone other than the teacher."

 

"According to Principal Lambert, the teacher addresses students daily by using the pronouns he, she, him and her.  The teacher also uses ma’am and sir when responding to students. As a personal preference, however, the teacher simply prefers to be referred to in gender neutral terms as that of a coach," Hanna wrote.

 

"I can assure you that teachers in our district will not be allowed to use their influence in the classroom to advance any personal belief or political agenda. At this time, I do not believe that is the case in this instance."

So what say you...necessary step toward forming a more perfect progressive society or just complete insanity?

No joke.

Pull your kids from these indoctrination centers. I know it sucks financially but one parent needs to homeschool. Or maybe you can find a small group of parents and switch off. 

One thing is you cannot turn your kids over to them for 8 hrs a day and expect to counterbalance that kind of CRAZY.

The result of mindlessly throwing more money at public education.

A complete lack of vetting by her bosses. 

If Mix had a real job, her boss would call her out and remind her that the DISTRICT sets the rules, not Mix.

She's a bit mixed up as who runs Bartertown.

Read what she wrote carefully. It's really interesting.

"about Mx. Bressack" (i.e. herself)  Refers to herself in the 3rd person. Can't be sure, but this is often a sign of narcissistic personality disorder -"your Queen has decided to lay waste to Freedonia with fire and sword...."

Refers to herself in the normal way at the end, if in a rather chilly Edwardian style, just for extra confusion :D

"Here are a couple of  fun things about me!" - lists 4.

"My experience students catch on pretty quickly ..." "We''re not trying for perfection" (impressive, now using the Royal "We")..... well thank goodness for that, Ma'am! :P

Might as well get as much out of this as we can. I'm certainly not going to get all Mx.ed up for this person. If I were in this chick's class, I'd refer to her as "Mr. and Mrs. Bressack"

is that pronounced "breast sack"?

"fuckhead" and "retard" a more appropriate gender neutral pronoun for these lunatics

You don't need to homeschool. If every parent just refused to have their student go to that teacher's class, it would solve the problem. People need to take their facebook rate to the school and actually do something about it, en vivo.

Or they can all just tell their kids to go to school, and tell the teacher they prefer to use the gender neutral prefix, bitch-ass-mofo.

Every day I see this I think why don't we just dump the "Mx" think and just call the female teachers who ask for this "cunt" for short.

Trollop is a nice traditional word.

"Vinegar-tits" might be ok too.

Seriously - pull your kids out.  The difference in their behavior, creativity, and inquisitiveness is amazing.  Anyone can do it*, and there are support groups just about everywhere for both secular and non-secular flavors.  It hurts the pocketbook, but it is worth it.  Homeschoolers are everywhere, we just tend to keep a low profile to avoid unnecissary attention.

*check state laws on requirements and call your legislators to fix the shitty ones.

I think you've got something there.

Forget pronouns, let's use nouns - and one you mentioned stands out as a nice descriptor:

BITCH. And feel free to frontload as many adjectives as desired.

I prefer to be called your ALPHA MALE SLAVE MASTER. So yeah, Mix. I got it straight if you do.

Presumable, for some unknown reason, they would object to the real English language neutral pronoun being used, that already exists - "IT".

Would IT like to bring me a coffee? IT was teaching us a great lesson yesterday. We learned a lot from IT.

The mentally ill woman should not be allowed around children. Communist like her, that's right her, whether she likes it or not she is a she, her, female, woman, etc. it doesn't matter if she doesn't like it, it is simply the truth and communists/ liberals hate the truth.

My mega popcorn bag is not going to last.

I'll need at least a giga popcorn bag before this is all over.

Meanwhile, great distraction from the fact that the USA is done with, headed for the exit of the world stage, to be replaced with Russia, China and the other BRICS countries. Nobody in gringoland wants to know (too scary a prospect); it's just so much more confortable to get yourself winded up about non-issues like gender-neutrality (the anti-thesis of LIFE as we've known it for 4 billion years).

I'm surprised that no parent has pointed this is incorrect English grammar. What kind of public school is this?

They should have a convo in English with a native French or Spanish speaker that isn't much used to English- "That building, he has a red, how you say, roof"

Last Man Standing's picture

It's a public school and that says it all. They have failed the parents and children of this generation. Instead of imparting knowledge they indoctrinate with lies and nonsense. The communist indoctrination of the leftist teachers unions survived the failure of the Soviet Union, the entire eastern block and even the current failures of Venezuela and socialism in Europe. The nonsense that these leftist idiots intentionally spew is designed to take down the United States of America and all non-communist nations, they want your children to be idiots so they are easier to control. Liberalism/ socialism/ Communism has gained control of important areas of government so as to accomplish their goal. The people must rise up against these scum, throw them out and destroy their agenda or we are in for a very dark world in the not too distant future.

I'm sorry; I'm only comfortable using the pronouns which have been developed and accepted as a general identifier for humans over the years. If you are offended by that, then please feel free to move to where they speak Swahili.

The beginnings of the synthetic language, already envisioned by Iain M Banks:

"Marain is a synthetic language created towards the very beginning of the Culture with the specific intention of providing a means of expression which would be a culturally inclusive and as encompassingly comprehensive in its technical and representational possibilities as practically achievable - a language, in short, that would appeal to poets, pedants, engineers and programmers alike. The intention was to start with a linguistic blank sheet, yet with the accumulated knowledge of the hundreds of thousands known to those people and machines charged with the language's devising. It had, therefore, no specific links to any of the main languages spoken by the people who came together to make up the Culture as a civilisation, save those statistically likely."

http://trevor-hopkins.com/banks/a-few-notes-on-marain.html

If you have read any of Banks' books, a good example being Player of Games,you will know that the purpose of Marain is to change the thinking of the speaker, to make them more politically correct, more empathetic, more understanding. A good example would be an order is not an order, it is a "mutually agreed-upon course of action".

This is all science fiction nonsense, but sci-fi is a reflection of the current society - a mirror to all our unpleasant little foibles and peccadilloes.

I had to do some work in Boulder, CO yesterday and after eating lunch went in the back to use the restrooms.  Both of them had signs that read 'Anybody'.

 

I shit you not.

It's more like a horror than Science Fiction, either way the enemy, and that is what the are, and their ideology must be destroyed for the good people and freedom to survive.

Sounds like he took a cue from Esperanto, the made-up language globalists were still trying to promote in the 1970s, when I was a kid in school. The reasons behind it were definitely PC (to shake of English/French/German/Spanish or any other language seen as 'colonial'), with the added bonus of a limited vocabulary.

George Soros's dad spoke it at home and was a big promoter of it, which should come as a surprise to exactly no one.

Just another day in the Jewnited States of Weimerica.

I blame the dads who allow this shit to happen. So many of the moms I see at my kids school seem to run their homes and dad just sits there like a little fucking faggot.

And the liberals' kids are always the ones with the behavior problems. The fatherless mixed race little mongrels being the worst.
