Tallahassee Democrat [FL], by Ryan Dailey

Posted By:Ribicon, 9/21/2017 1:02:40 PM

A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group

Elementary school teacher sends home a note announcing that she´s mentally ill, and the school principal says he´s in full support. Only some parents are alarmed, if not up in arms?

Reinforcing bad grammar should be a reason to fire this teacher. Their, they, them are plural referring to groups and not individuals.

If I had a child in her class I would pull him or her out. The job of a Teacher is to PREPARE a Student to go out into the world. To PREPARE them to succeed in the Workplace. To succeed in being a Parent. WHY in the world should this person teach what SHE thinks is proper. She should be FIRED and someone who follows a Lesson Plan should replace her.

This nonsense surely wastes taxpayer monies - the ´teachers´ are supposed to be covering reading, writing and arithmetic over and over until the children can perform them well. I don´t add American history since these leftard chimps don´t know the correct version.

The left has won. Our culture and our country have lost. It only gets worse from here on out. Is there any ´leadership´ speaking out about this Marxist clap trap? No. I didn´t think so. Anarchy is what the left wants. And they have succeeded without firing a shot. Well, not as many shots (mostly at the cops) as you would have thought it would have taken. And what better way for them to succeed than to inculcate our schools full of young minds full of mush. We are toast. America is toast. Now its Amerika, waiting to be nuked.

Yeah, I´d be divided in opinion too.

I´d have a hard time deciding whether:

To fire her and see that she is never hired by any school again.

Or :

To fire her. then Tar & feather her and ride her out of town on a rail, then see that she is never hired by any school again.

If she´s concerned that all students feel comfortable and have a place to be themselves in her classroom, then I´m sure she´ll be fine with students using the pronouns their parents prefer they use. Right? And the Principal will equally be fine with the students doing what they´re comfortable with even if it´s he/she, him/her. Right?

I´m a woman who used to be a guy, (that´s another story, but put in here for context) This "teacher" is a total bonehead and most likely one of those pushy liberal looser types, who insist (demand) that in the name of diversity you do as they say.
I say they give a very bad name to the rest of my community. Their actions and demands are so very far over the mark. Pull out your children and go to another school.

Because #9 that is what has been happening since Carter created the Dept. of Education, the unions were allowed control of the teachers and tenure. The Dept. of Education should be dismantled, the unions shown the door and tenure cancelled. That would be a start.

Hilarious. In Lambert´s quote supporting the teacher, he uses ´she and ´her´ about half a dozen times in direct conflict with what they wants. And so this one teacher has engineered the bastardization of the previous sentence. You see - it´s not enough to prefer a custom handle to suit your innermost comfort levels, one must change the language and impressionable minds as well. So let Mx Bressack be addressed as such, and in other contexts as simply Mx. Leave the language alone. As #1 points out - the other words have inappropriate meanings when referring to mx.

The gender-neutral pronoun would be ´it.´ Why does it have a problem with ´it´? At least the use of ´it´ doesn´t mess with the kids´ understanding of singular and plural pronouns.

Can this woman be trusted not to go berserk if a student correctly calls her Miss or Mrs.?

Before she can claim gender neutrality, she should submit a DNA sample to prove it.

As noted earlier, the PC principal doesn´t even know how to address "they" properly.

It will never "feel" natural because it´s NOT natural. Imagine being a child with a learning disability struggling to learn in a classroom where the teacher demands to be referred to as "they." It´s shocking that we´ve reached a point in this country where the wants of the teacher trump the needs of the children.

WHY must normal people genuflect to the dysfunctional among us? Why do some demand special treatment for the dysfunctional?
Are they more equal that the rest of us?
How about: just STOP telling normal people how to act, how to feel and how to think. STOP it.
It´s either XX or XY. Don´t like it? That´s YOUR problem ... don´t make it MINE.

I reject Mx. I might accept "it." But #4, I don´t accept that premise, although I agree that it feels that way sometimes. The public schools are losing more and more students each year. parents are wising up to what is going on in the public schools and they don´t like it.
The ps district here has not had a bond issue pass in nine years. Meanwhile a charter school, that just stated 5 years ago, has already built a $5 mil HS. Last year the the district went all out on it´s requests and asked for a whopping $300 mil bond and asked if the community would not approve that at least pass an $11 mil for raises and bonuses, then hired an expensive PR firm to sell it. Both went down in flames. That sort of thing has been going on all over the country. There is a reason for the online school, charter schools the demand for school vouchers, the home schooling. Take heart elect the right people to the Bd of Ed. It may not be visible but it is happening all over the country. There is a reason you see more of this coming from the ps, that´s all that is left at the ps. The good people are getting their children out of there.

I always wondered about the "female" history teacher I had in 11th grade. Looked like a guy, with a heavy beard (clean shaven, but that Homer Simpson look) and wore a mumu type rig every day. Angry, mean sort of person. I was happy to only spend half a year in that school. Never did figure "her" out, definitely looked like pi**ed off hairy guy in a dress. This would have been in middle 60s.

There are really some strange people out there running loose.

The head of MI5 today warned Britain is facing the biggest terror threat of his 34 year career - as he said tech giants have an ´ethical responsibility´ to crack down on extremists. Andrew Parker said extremists are mounting deadly terror attacks with just a few days of planning as the UK sees a ´dramatic´ jump in the scale and pace of the threat. In his annual ´state of the union´ assessment of the threat facing the UK, he said extremists are exploiting ´safe spaces´ online, hindering intelligence efforts to root them out.

Philadelphia — When U.S. Sen. John McCain was a younger man, once or twice he was tasked with carrying Joe Biden´s luggage. On Monday, after Biden, the former U.S. vice president, awarded McCain with the National Constitution Center´s Liberty Medal, McCain was sure to let everyone know he hadn´t forgotten.

President Trump said Monday that he’s eyeing another major government reform — this time tackling welfare. He said some recipients are taking advantage of public assistance while others in need don’t get it. “We are looking very, very strongly therefore at welfare reform,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the start of a Cabinet meeting at the White House. The mention of welfare reform was unexpected. He rarely mentioned the topic during the campaign and has been consumed with other ambitious plans since taking office. Mr. Trump is currently trying to push a major tax-code overhaul through Congress, a huge undertaken

A 39-year-old man in the country illegally pleaded guilty Thursday to causing a traffic crash that killed a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy last year. Adrian Espinosa-Flores, 39, pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless second-degree murder in the death of Master Deputy Brandon Collins.

Collins’ patrol vehicle was parked when a pickup truck driven by Espinosa-Flores ran into the back of Collins’ vehicle, pushing it into the SUV that the deputy had pulled over.

Young LGBT immigrants face

Advocates pushing for an unaltered Dream Act to protect young immigrants are warning of the discrimination that some in the LGBT community would face if they were deported. The sunsetting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has enrolled 12,000-13,000 Nevada residents, including a rough estimate of 577 members of the LGBT community. Same-sex marriage is either illegal or unrecognized in four out of the top five origin countries for DACA enrollees, and advocates say they could face additional dangers in the detention process while they await deportation.

Two young illegal immigrant “Dreamers” in the U.S. under protection of the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty were caught smuggling illegal immigrants in separate incidents in Texas, authorities announced Thursday. The arrests come at a time when Congress is debating what to do about Dreamers, and the arrests could complicate the picture painted of Dreamers as law-abiding standouts who are victims of circumstance. Customs and Border Protection said the first smuggling attempt was broken up on Oct. 4, after Border Patrol agents stopped a car at a checkpoint on Interstate 35 and discovered two illegal immigrants from Brazil hiding in the trunk.

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions. (Snip) ´To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,´ he said. He added: ´We live in a land made of

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said in a radio interview on Sunday that Democrats can lose to President Donald Trump in 2020 if they "overdo it" by becoming too liberal. Durbin was asked on a local Chicago radio program about comments from Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), who warned fellow Democrats that Trump would be reelected if the party becomes too liberal. CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski was first to report on Durbin´s comments. (Audio) "We need to be balanced," Durbin said on "Connected to Chicago" on WLS-AM. "She´s right about that. And as downstater like her, I understand
