It reads like a “Hardy Boys” or “Nancy Drew” title… “The Hardy Boys In: The Mystery of The Political-Puppet Teacher”.
But in this case, it’s not the Hardy Boys, it’s one boy. And it’s true.
As reported by CBN News and others, an unidentified teen male, possibly named “Murray”, and possibly based in the UK, fired-up his phone-cam after being thrown out of class and ordered to sit in another room.
We enter the scene as he starts the video recorder and waits for the teacher to enter.
When the teacher arrives, we hear what sounds like a Scottish or north-English accent pour from him as he berates the student for disagreeing with his comment that a website he showed in class did not state that there were more than two genders.
The teacher tells him he was “not being inclusive” for claiming that there are only two genders, and the student says, “Well, that’s your opinion.”
“Yes, that’s my opinion,” snaps Teach. “And it’s an opinion that is acceptable in the school. And yours -- your saying that there isn’t anything other than male or female -- is not inclusive.”
“I’m saying there are just two genders,” notes the student.
The teacher’s face turns sour.
A moment later, after the teacher accuses the student of making an issue of it, when, in fact, the teacher made an issue of the question by pushing the unscientific belief that there are more than two genders, the student simply states:
I think it’s silly to have more than two genders.
And that’s when the teacher digs in, revealing precisely what’s wrong with government-run schools, and one of the major reasons why so many parents around the world heroically try to get their children out of them, even as they are still forced to pay for them through taxation.
The teacher snaps, “Could you please keep that opinion to your own house?”
The student tries to clarify. “So, you get to put your opinion out in class, and I have to—”
But the tax-funded teacher replies:
I am not putting my opinion out. I am stating what is national school authority policy.
After some more jousting, in which the student correctly states that he has had his time wasted by the teacher, the teacher says:
I know what you think! And I know what the authority thinks. And what the authority thinks. I know what… the authority’s point of view is very clear! Very clear that we make no discrimination on the grounds of various—
The student needs to correct the teacher for his ignorance of the English language.
I wasn’t ‘making a discrimination.’ I’m simply saying there are two genders, male and female. Anything else is a personal identification.
Well, that seemed to flummox the teacher. But good for the kid. He stuck to a solid statement of fact based on science. We know that most of humanity is split into male and female, with some very, very rare exceptions, and so does the student. People who were born male or female are free to imagine that they are the opposite, but not free to demand that others see them as such. Similarly, the teacher is free to believe two plus two is five, but he's not free to demand that others accept the same mistaken belief.
But the teacher has to march, lock-step, in line with state commands. He must be sure not to engage in a speech crime, and make his mind travel the approved lines of thought dictated from on-high. Otherwise, it would be Orwellian ThoughtCrime.
And in the end, we get the proverbial “icing on the cake”, as the student tells the teacher, “Thank you for wasting my time,” and the teacher replies:
(Murray), I am not allowed to tell you how much of my time you’ve wasted.
And there we have it, the absolutely upside-down world of a young man imprisoned in a government-run school system, the indoctrination system his parents and others are forced to support, and the teacher being paid by those taxes and who has total control over what the kid sees and hears and says in class.
Ahh, but, as he makes money off the whole corrupt system, the teacher claims the student has wasted his time.
Congratulations to this mystery teen. He’s a hero. We may never know his identity, but he’s emerged victorious in the battle for truth. He’s stood up for principle, and shown the world another example of the intellectual emptiness of the state-run school system.
He’s won, and one hopes he realizes that this is the case.
