Another Florida school district is cutting parents out of the loop on transgender school kids and gagging teachers, but this time going after a male P.E. teacher who refused to observe a middle school girl who was claiming to feel like a boy and using the boys’ locker room.

Pasco County schools, a suburban county just north of Tampa, allowed a self-determined transgender female student daily access to the boys’ locker room, without providing any advanced warning to the boys’ parents or to the boys themselves.

This resulted in an embarrassing shock the first time the obvious girl entered the locker room and there were naked boys.

When the male P.E. teacher refused to watch the minor girl change clothes, a school administrator threatened the teacher with placing him on administrative leave. According to Liberty Counsel attorney Richard Mast, whose organization is involved in the situation, the threatening email said that refusing to supervise the girl would “not be tolerated.”

The Liberty Counsel is a pro-bono national law firm that protects individuals’ rights from a traditional, constitutional viewpoint.

Interestingly, a female P.E. teacher also objected to the situation, but was ignored by school administrators. She has not yet been threatened, and given the publicity now surrounding the school, probably will not be. Those are usually done quietly.

The first time the girl entered the boys’ locker room, she caught “boys (literally) with their pants down, causing them embarrassment and concern by the fact that they had been observed changing by an obvious girl,” according to the complaint letter sent to the Pasco County School District from the Liberty Counsel. Remember, these are 13- and 14-year-old boys just discovering their awkward transition into manhood.

Teachers at Chasco Middle School are banned from discussing the change in policy — not the specifics of the case, which would make sense, but the policy itself. There is no other reasonable term for that than “gag order.”

So the Liberty Counsel letter goes on to explain that the teacher refused to “knowingly place himself in a position to observe a minor female in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress.” That actually is a both moral and legally sensible move on the part of the teacher. However, school administrators shifted from the threat of administrative leave to a threat to having him “transferred to another school as discipline for ‘not doing your job in the locker room.’”

The situation arose in September, yet the Pasco County parents of 70,000 students in the district have still not been informed of the new policy by the school district, even though the female student still has full access to the male changing facilities. The Pasco School Board also is aware of it and has done nothing.

The reason is not hard to see. LGBTQI activists are organized, well-financed, powerful and intimidating. Very few politicians or even regular people want to be even perceived as going counter to their agenda.

The Pasco controversy mirrors similar transgender secrecy and heavy-handed intimidation on the part of school district officials in Sarasota County, just south of Tampa. (Both Sarasota and Pasco counties are politically red counties. Their School Boards do not seem to be reflecting that.)

At the recommendation of the Sarasota County School District’s LGBTQI Task Force, the superintendent issued “guidelines” to govern how the district’s 50 public schools handle transgender and gender questioning students — starting as young as kindergarten.

Actual Truth On Facebook

The Sarasota County school policy guidelines implement a full-blown transgender protocol allowing students to use whichever bathroom and locker room corresponds with the gender with which they “identify;” and forces everyone else to use the pronoun of the students’ choice. This sounds identical to Pasco’s policy — or perhaps guidelines is the technical terms as the Board did not take action on it.

But maybe the biggest affront is that the Sarasota guidelines also say that parents can not be informed of their child’s decision to identify as a different gender, because some trans activists claim the schools are a “safer” environment than the home. This again seems to be in line with what is going on in Pasco, which suggests that the administrative guidelines are being heavily influenced or even written by trans activists.

In Sarasota, the secrecy along with the general egregiousness of the policy, attracted a lot of controversy. A 31-year-old Sarasota father of a young child not yet in the school system, sent the superintendent a brief email criticizing the guidelines and keeping transgenderism secret from parents.

That parent found officers from the school district’s brand new police force at his door the next day. Nothing came of the officers’ visit, because they realized the letter was harmless. Nonetheless more showed up at the father’s parent’s home and neighbors’ home.

This is a shocking level of intimidation for a local school district, and certainly at least some parents must have got the message: Shut up, sit down and let us handle your children. Or else we may come knocking.

In Pasco, the message sent is similar, but directly to teachers. Shut up and do what you’re told. Or else.

    That’s some choice. Suffering potential disciplinary action/firing for not keeping an eye on your students vs. possible legal/criminal action for perving on an underage female. No one should be put in those situations because of an insane leftist/communist policy of the school district. Said coach made the proper choice.

    The best thing for the parents to do is pull their kids OUT of the school system and home school them. School districts depend on pupil attendance for the money they receive to operate. … Cut off their money supply and you’ll see some fast policy changes and perhaps some firings of idiot administrators

      This is actually an excellent idea- if implemented on a mass scale. I think parents ought to organize a “protest” of sorts, where they all, simultaneously, remove their kids from school, and provide a letter to the Principal on the day they do it.

      I’d give it less than a week, maybe up to two weeks- and in that time, there’s nothing drastic any kid would be missing from the slow going pace followed at the average public school. In other words, the parents should form a union, essentially, with the kids as the “workers”.

    No doubt the boys in the locker room were fine with having a girl come round. Maybe she even showered with them. Imagine the luck! These are the kinds of thoughts that reconcile me to the insanity of the left.

      Some parents do still work hard to keep their children innocent. We need to let the children develop at their own pace instead of deciding when to “educate” them on the facts of life. When they are ready, if lines of communication have been kept open, they will ask. Forcing it upon them on our time table is a crime in my mind.

    And if he had watched the girl change, he would have been charged with some sex crime against a minor. You can’t win with slimy liberals.

    You could always, what a crazy idea, use one-person stalls for changing (of course you would have to put them into changing rooms first). Personally I see no reason for students to observe other people “in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress.”, regardless of sex. Especially, as article stated, when just discovering their awkward transition into manhood.

    This is just another obvious problem created by the progressive dinosaur of the Public School System. This 19th century European concept was meant to work with homogeneous populations found in Europe 100 in that age, where a one size fits all approach to education as capitalist assembly line perhaps made more sense.

    In today’s society of diverse religious, political, ethical value systems, to assume that every student learns the same, should be taught the same, or has the same values is simply incorrect. With modern technology and transportation, there is no reason for big government mass education.

    Free Market schools will resolve all these problems. Parent’s can send their children to schools reflective of their own values, not a bureaucrats decision. Trans girl can go to a school that helps her maximize her potential without imposing her abnormal gender beliefs on normative people who can attend schools designed for normative beliefs.

    There is no reason for government to be involved in education beyond using financial vouchers to allow poor people school choices.

    “Shut up, sit down and let us handle your children.” It’s actually worse than that. The plan is to teach children that mom & dad are not to be trusted or believed. The school (ie gov’t) is your family now. If those bad, scary people you live with say things different than what your teacher says, let us know, and we’ll go arrest them!

    As others have suggested, the best way to fight back is to take back your kids. Starve the school system of what it cares about: that government money, $10K-$20K per kid per year. It’s the same reason they want all the immigrant kids. Bring ’em on!

    We homeschooled from K – 10th grade, two very successful young ladies, who can smell Leftist Propaganda a mile away!
