STARNES: Teacher Could Face Federal Probe For Saying Girls Can’t be Boys

Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.

Calvin Hillesland teaches German at Watertown High School in South Dakota. 

He’s at the center of an ugly controversy over transgenderism.

Mr. Hillesland gave students a letter addressing the scientific facts about gender identity. 

But parents say it was a pre-meditated attack on transgenderism. 

The school district sided with the parents — saying that students have a right to be who they are. Using that logic If the kids want to be a tree, they can be a tree. If they want to identify as a horse, they can identify as a horse. 

The school says they are investigating and the teacher could face  a federal probe from the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. 

Mr. Hillesland should be commending for telling his students the truth. 

Boys cannot become girls. Girls cannot become boys. 

It’s a biological truth. 

Give the teacher a raise.
