A high school teacher in Williamsburg, Virginia who was fired for not using a student’s transgender pronoun is suing school officials and the board.
Peter Vlaming, who was a French teacher at West Point High School, said he was fired for not referring to a female student as “him” or “her” in 2019.
Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Tyson Langhofer told the Todd Starnes Radio Show Vlaming has not been able to find another teaching job since the firing despite being beloved by students and being an award-winning educator.
“He went out of his way to treat this student with respect and said ‘I won’t use a pronoun you don’t like. I’ll just call you by your name,'” Langhofer said.
“He was not discriminating this student…but unfortunately, the school didn’t respect him. Tolerance is a two-way street,” he added.
