Teacher fired for refusing to use a student’s ‘preferred pronoun’

A teacher in Virgina has been fired for refusing to use the preferred pronoun of a trans student who went from female to male. His refusal was based on his Christian faith:

CBN NEWS – Peter Vlaming was a well-liked French teacher at West Point High School in Virginia. But late last year, Vlaming was fired because he refused to call a ninth-grade student who transitioned from female to male by the student’s new preferred pronoun, “he.”

“I could not, in good conscience based on my Christian faith, call a girl a boy,” Vlaming said.

Vlaming agreed to use the student’s new name. But since he wouldn’t refer to the biological girl as “he” or “him,” he was placed on administrative leave in October of 2018.

“I was told that not only would I pronounce masculine pronouns when referring to the student when students were present, [but] that I would do so even when students weren’t present. I was given a written ultimatum that insisted that I use masculine pronouns for the student and that I would be fired if they deemed that I was avoiding the use of masculine pronouns,” Vlaming said.

Two months later, the school board made its decision.

“I had a hearing on December 6th,” Vlaming told CBN News. “And it was long. It was a four-hour hearing. Afterward, The West Point public school board unanimously voted to fire me.”

The teacher agreed to call the student by their new name. But the school board forced him to use the ‘pronoun’, even in private, and when he didn’t he was summarily fired.



The students who loved the teacher were outraged and staged a walkout:

Students at the school were outraged. Forrest Rhode, a West Point junior, rallied students to protest Vlaming’s firing by staging a walkout.

“I would say we had like 150 people out there,” Rhode said. “And we had them all circling around there, marching, chanting, ranting all that type of stuff.”

Rhode called the school’s treatment of the French teacher unfair and felt he needed to act.

“I did the oath of enlistment a couple of weeks ago. I’m going to be joining the Marine Corps,” Rhode said. “And I’m going to be defending people’s rights to express themselves and I’m going to be defending the Constitution. And that’s really important to me. I want to make sure everybody’s rights are protected.”

According to CBN News, he’s been out of work for 6 months and no other schools will even give him an interview – despite him being offered several jobs in surrounding schools before all of this happened. Sounds like they are blackballing him.

The French teacher is appealing the decision by the school.

As we’ve been saying all along, this is what happens when you give the LGBT community rights. It’s zero sum, because when you give LGBTers rights, you take away the rights of Christians to disagree and they are the ones being persecuted in all of this.

  1. Why should you and I be forced to participate in the delusions of very obviously mentally ill people?

  2. When a government forces depravity and perversion upon it’s citizens, I wonder how long that nation will be able to endure. Not long, I fear.

  5. Lest we forget…every one of us are created in the image of God, male and female. When He created us in our mother’s womb he created us male or female, no ambiguity, not one or the other, and “He blessed” us.

    14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
    15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
    16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
    17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
    18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.

  6. It’s bad enough that the left and the LGB… are degrading our society, but that’s not good enough for them. They want to force their beliefs on everyone else. Is this what we call a free society? PC is destroying this country really really fast. It’s a way to take away freedoms without changing the law or the Constitution. Doing things like this to the teacher should be against the law. Bring back the teacher and fire the administration that did this.

    1. @kong1967 If only it was just this “administration” that did this. But according to the article, the “surrounding schools” are exactly the same, plus it seems to be happening in other instances as documented in comments below. IOW, it’s becoming systemic.

      I don’t know know how to fix this.

      1. @nc-checks-and-balances I don’t know how to fix it either. It’s something we should have been preventing over the years while the Democrats were slowly taking the entire system over. Schools are nothing but indoctrination centers now.

  7. She’ll always be a she. No matter what they shoot her up with. Where are all the goddam biologists and endocrinologists? Hiding under their beds? They know the truth, they’re just afraid to say it out loud.

    1. You speak with such authority on the issue. Are you a scientist? If so, I’d be curious to read your scientific refutation of what seems to be the growing scientific evidence that biological differences exist between transgender people and non-transgender people. For example, here a summary from realclearscience.com, briefly answering the question; “Are there brain differences associated with being transgender?”:

      Yes. Male and female brains are structually different, and fascinatingly, studies show that the brain structure and brain activity of transgender people more closely resemble those of their gender identity versus their birth gender. This suggests that sexual differentiation of the brain during the development is not necessarily linked to sexual differentiation of the genitals.
      . . .
      Though we don’t know exactly what biological mechanisms influence transgender identity, we can conclude with a fair amount of certainty that being transgender is heavily influenced by biology. https://www.realclearscience.com/blog/2018/10/08/navigating_the_controversial_science_on_transgender.html

      Not sure if the scientists on which they rely are biologists and endocrinologists, but it does seem science is addressing the issue.

      Im not I scientist, but if If you are a scientist, maybe you can explain where they have gone wrong? Thanks.

      1. I noticed no mention of basic DNA. XX, XY. That’s all the brain genders you get to choose from.

        And don’t bring up “intersexed” persons. Their gender DNA is also locked in. There are people with 4 arms and 20 fingers and toes…doesn’t make them any less human, nor does it change their gender DNA.

        1. You get to choose? I had no idea. Seriously, I’m not a scientist but I’m pretty sure there is more ongoing than just XX vs. XY. And if the brains are indeed different, then isn’t that biology too?

      2. Sounds like a conclusion that’s heavily influenced by ideology. Considering the ‘contagion effect’ as well happening strongly with this fad, I doubt that there are many studies showing this.

        1. You think the “contigion effect” is rearranging their biology? How’s that work, exactly?
          For example, I saw that recently researchers may have found strong evidence that there is a genetic component, with transgender individuals generally having (or lacking, I don’t remember which) several genes involved in sex hormone-signaling.
          What would that have to do with “contagion effect?”

    2. There are a few who are speaking out. I found this video of a conference at Ft. Worth, Texas on YouTube. It’s by the MassResistance channel. The speaker is a doctor named Quentin Van Meter, MD, FCP and he is a pediatric endocrinologist.

      The title of the video speaks for itself: The terrible fraud of ‘transgender medicine’.

  8. Anyone currently in college looking to become a teacher needs to understand that the profession exists only in the private, non-government domain. If you’re willing to work for half of what current, government-paid Propaganda Dispensers get, then you’ll be fine.

    Just stay away from government schools.

  9. Can’t fire under performing, incompetent or terrible teachers, but a well liked teacher that refuses to to call a girl a boy…yeah fire that one?

    There’s your government education system at work.

    Do yourself a favor & enroll your kids in private school. There you can choose what you want your children to learn, and when it comes to college application time…private schools look much better on the application that a public school.

  10. If her name was Christine,could you call her Chris or could they fire you for that also,being you have only moved from a pronoun to a noun. Then again.Would anyone get upset at you if you just called her Butch.I kind of like that.

  11. What is going on in Virginia? Seems like every other week there
    is more craziness being adopted by that once patriotically American state.

  12. I’m sorry, but how is this not illegal? What if thinks he’s Snoopy? Teachers need to go along with it? Ya know, if we’re being consistent…..

    This ridiculousness will have no end. Every freak whim will have to be honored. Sorry, but I refuse to go along.

    1. Well, if she thinks she’s Snoopy, the teacher should say “that’s a good boy” rather than “that’s a good girl.”

  13. Let’s reduce this to its most basic argument, and lets use logic instead of religious belief:

    An adolescent individual who refuses to accept themselves as they are demands the rest of the world profess belief in an untruth, a scientific impossibility; that their sex can be changed. Further, refusal to participate in this fiction results in termination of employment and sabotage of career of an adult.

    Gender dysphoria is a mental disorder. Abusing normal people in an attempt to placate the abnormal only harms future abnormal people.

    1. Not sure that’s the most basic logic. If a few people are born knowing/believing that they are female, but their bits and pieces match those of males, then what does “accepting who they are” really mean? Is it accepting the brain’s message despite the body, or the body’s message, despite the brain?

      1. Sex is biological. Male and female are not thoughts. You can think whatever you want, feel however you want, but those chromosomes will never change.

  14. “I could not, in good conscience based on my Christian faith, call a girl a boy,” Vlaming said.

    For the life of me, I don’t understand why so many people fall back on this reasoning. You don’t need to cite conscience or faith. All it does is marginalize Christianity further. There’s no reason to inject supernaturalism into this discussion.

    If anybody asks me why I’m not going to call a girl a boy, my answer is simple: I am not going to consciously and intentionally deny reality for sake of your feelings. I will be as tactful as possible without being forced to state factual untruths.

    Bang – now religion’s out of the argument and it can’t be used against you by anti-Christian bigots.

    1. Religion is a protected class.

      The fact that he publicly stated that he was being faithful to his religion strengthens his legal case if he chooses to sue.

  15. I have my first grandchild due to be born this summer, and frankly, I am willing to fund the entire k-12 education if it keeps her out of the cesspool that is the public school system today. It was bad enough in the early 80’s when I was there, and now the 80’s looks like a catholic convent to today. They are out of control – not just in the morality part, but also in the policy part. However, back to the subject at hand, their diversity policies are outrageous. Busing kids in to schools from an hour away just to diversify, the grading system that got dumbed down while simultaneously making sure nobody fails a grade to protect government funding, The Obama-Holder policies that reduced arrests and suspensions by basically not enforcing them on minorities (see the Parkland shooting for results), etc.

    Whats more is that the school systems that run this circus act with impunity. They firmly believe they are better at making choices than parents, and that they are the de-facto authority for all things related to our children. They will decide what they eat. They will decide what school is appropriate for them. They will decide what pronouns they can use. They will decide what is offensive. They will decide literally everything. — and if you are a parent that disagrees, you are going to be shocked at how much they think of you and your opinion. Just pay your taxes and shut up. If you are a teacher who disagrees, good luck ever finding another job in the area.

  16. One of the scariest parts of this story is that the school board voted unanimously to fire him. It wasn’t a split decision with a couple of sane board members fighting for him – every member voted for this nonsense. It truly boggles my mind how rapidly our culture has shifted on these issues.

    On another note, I know nothing about the French language, but my understanding is that unlike English, most words are considered masculine or feminine. Wouldn’t there be added complications of speaking French with a ‘male’ student that you know to actually be female? Even in English – even if I tried to be accommodating to a trans person – I know I’d constantly, instinctively revert to the correct pronouns.

    As they say, “You will be made to care.” It isn’t about tolerance or acceptance. It has become, ‘You will approve of our depravity, you will affirm it and even participate in it, or you will lose your livelihood.’

    1. @mama-bear-patriot Great point. Many languages are based on gender – two genders. What are they going through?

  17. Teacher is smart and calls student by student’s name and is fired because of it. Just who do we want running our schools? I would want Peter doing what Peter does best and that is teaching. No pronouns so far in my response!!!

    Also, isn’t French a language where words are assigned masculine and feminine with le and la? I don’t think the French are going to rewrite their language to accommodate a transgender person when people are either boy or girl.

    We need to stop this craziness.

    1. The problem is they’re not “our” schools. They are “their” schools. Government schools.

      And the nuclear family is a danger to their system, hence, male and female, the idea of mom and dad, must be undermined.

  18. “According to CBN News, he’s been out of work for 6 months and no other schools will even give him an interview – despite him being offered several jobs in surrounding schools before all of this happened. Sounds like they are blackballing him.”

    1. Employees in private companies. My husband’s company is now rolling out policies where your annual review is not only based on your performance but also your “state of mind.” This is after having a company wide day long talk by a woman with a PhD in Business Organization who came in talking about safe spaces and all the other SJW nonsense.

      1. STATE OF MIND????? Are you kidding me??? I knew things were really bad but I really didn’t think it was this bad! :exclamation:

      2. Yep, I’m currently looking for another job as well due to the PC policies that the SJW’s want put in place. The supervisor asked me why I’m wanting to leave, my response was: Are you kidding me? If you need to ask then you’re not in the state of mind for me to explain. Have a nice day…

        1. My hubby keeps his head down and just does his job. The problem is he has to interact with everyone at some point, and someone being offended by something said in conversation is subjective. He would never say something intentionally offensive to someone, but he is a white male so someone with a victim mentality could make up anything as offensive. He would never find a better benefits package anywhere around here.

  19. Are there any legit Rastafarians willing to sue, or at least make a public spectacle on social media, over someone’s use of the pronoun “we” instead of “I and I” just to prove a point? They’ve gotten a religious exemption for marijuana. Why not take it to the next level?

  20. God bless this teacher AND young Forrest Rhode, a kid who’s got his head on straight.

    This story is strange because that’s a rural part of Virginia and it sounds like there are plenty of just plain normal folks there – so why is the entire school board in agreement on persecuting this guy?

  24. Are there no Christian-based schools in VA? He could go someplace like Indiana, Texas and other points in the south, or even ND, SD or Nebraska, if willing to move. There are options. Perhaps a lawyer will stick up for him, take up his cause for his Christian rights, since it seems the rights of all Judeo-Christians has been stolen away by evil. But we cannot be surprised that, since all “public schools” are now overseen by the federal government and the federal government does not permit religious freedom in all that it oversees, that this is happening.

    What I find disturbing is that children going through puberty, whose hormones have not been fully established yet, can transgender. It is putting their lives at severe risk. The incidence of cancer in male and female transgenders is going to sky-rocket, with males taking estrogen and females taking testosterone, but as with everything else, it will take modern medicine decades to figure that out and hundreds of thousands will die for the sake of pharmaceutical profits. Oh well, free will.

    1. Look, if destroying the lives of children is what’s necessary in order to be woke then…

      1. Then nothing; the American people need to stop this behavior by voting out every democrat and every RINO, and work to replace them with true Americans with good values and best ideas for our nation. The entire left coast and NY are already lost causes; the fascist’s experiment to destroy CO with drugs is working…these places are chaotic, lawless shytholes and we must prevent that everywhere else!

      1. Yea, but it is and it isn’t. If I go to work and start reading loudly from my Bible, my boss can say “Stop it AT and get back to work,” and that’s not religious discrimination.

        “Yo my religion” isn’t a free pass to do (or not do) whatever you please.

        And while it may lend to the legal case (sorta, have fun with that), it plays havoc with the social case. All the Jesus haters entrench even further, and all the supporters come off a tad bit zealoty.

    2. I agree. This could be easily argued with science. There’s nowhere for the school board to go when using their own standards. They do teach science there. Use it against them.

      1. So calling her a bitch is out of the question? That’s the technical name for a female Snoopy, I think. I’d never make it in the school system.

      2. I know how to fix this in a very long fight. Organize the like minded parents in surrounding schools, go to court, picket schools, remove children from the school system, and home school them or start a charter school. Contact local and state politicians en masse, they either do something or be voted out of office. This must be a grassroots campaign in every state. We have to look at long term fixes.

  35. Hey, it’s for the kids, right? Who needs a competent French teacher. Can’t wait until we hear about employers forced to comply with the weirdos in society.

  36. When a government forces depravity and perversion upon it’s citizens, I wonder how long that nation will be able to endure. Not long, I fear.

  37. Lest we forget…every one of us are created in the image of God, male and female. When He created us in our mother’s womb he created us male or female, no ambiguity, not one or the other, and “He blessed” us.

    27 So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them.

    Genesis 5:2
    2 He created them male and female and blessed them.

    Psalm 139:13-18
    For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
    14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
    15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
    16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
    17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
    18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.

  38. Why should you and I be forced to participate in the delusions of very obviously mentally ill people?

  39. They don’t want equal treatment, they want special treatment and I’ll be damned if I give it to them.

  40. When a teacher has 150+ students a day… how are you supposed to remember a DA** pronoun?

    The same crew who talks about “tolerance…” HYPOCRISY!

    1. That’s the thing. You’re NOT supposed to be able to follow all the PC rules. That’s the point. Ever-shifting rules leave the average person in fear of offending, and hence the inability to speak truth. That makes of an easily controlled population.

      1. @texas-chris
        BINGO!! That is the goal, T… once you silence common sense, it’s over.

  41. From now on stop using the new gender pronoun and refer to the person as “the science denier.” You’re not using a pronoun so you’re working within their system and calling them out at the same time.

  42. Virginia… the California of the east. This is outrageous and so wrong!!! :exclamation:

  43. No one should be compelled to participate in someone else’s delusions. Fascism by any other name is still fascism.

  44. Here in Arkansas, a law was passed in 2010 that if a child calls another child by a pronoun, other than what is “preferred,” it is bullying. I bet they enforce it too unlike other kinds of bullying (I’ve had experience with the lack of action there). Just one of the many reasons my kids will never be in the public school system again.
    Maybe this teacher could find a job in a Catholic school, not just any Christian school because it seems a lot of denominations have been infiltrated.

  45. “According to CBN News, he’s been out of work for 6 months and no other schools will even give him an interview – despite him being offered several jobs in surrounding schools before all of this happened. Sounds like they are blackballing him.”

    So this isn’t a one-off. And this is Virgina, not California or New York City.

    “How will OUR marriage affect YOURS?”

    The bakers, the teachers, who’s next?

    1. Employees in private companies. My husband’s company is now rolling out policies where your annual review is not only based on your performance but also your “state of mind.” This is after having a company wide day long talk by a woman with a PhD in Business Organization who came in talking about safe spaces and all the other SJW nonsense.

      1. Yep, I’m currently looking for another job as well due to the PC policies that the SJW’s want put in place. The supervisor asked me why I’m wanting to leave, my response was: Are you kidding me? If you need to ask then you’re not in the state of mind for me to explain. Have a nice day…

        1. My hubby keeps his head down and just does his job. The problem is he has to interact with everyone at some point, and someone being offended by something said in conversation is subjective. He would never say something intentionally offensive to someone, but he is a white male so someone with a victim mentality could make up anything as offensive. He would never find a better benefits package anywhere around here.

      2. STATE OF MIND????? Are you kidding me??? I knew things were really bad but I really didn’t think it was this bad! :exclamation:

  46. Are there any legit Rastafarians willing to sue, or at least make a public spectacle on social media, over someone’s use of the pronoun “we” instead of “I and I” just to prove a point? They’ve gotten a religious exemption for marijuana. Why not take it to the next level?

  47. “I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.” — Bob Hope, 1976

  48. Wow, I have worked in that kind of environment, very sick.. and often “State sanctioned” with YOUR tax dollars:(

  49. Are there no Christian-based schools in VA? He could go someplace like Indiana, Texas and other points in the south, or even ND, SD or Nebraska, if willing to move. There are options. Perhaps a lawyer will stick up for him, take up his cause for his Christian rights, since it seems the rights of all Judeo-Christians has been stolen away by evil. But we cannot be surprised that, since all “public schools” are now overseen by the federal government and the federal government does not permit religious freedom in all that it oversees, that this is happening.

    What I find disturbing is that children going through puberty, whose hormones have not been fully established yet, can transgender. It is putting their lives at severe risk. The incidence of cancer in male and female transgenders is going to sky-rocket, with males taking estrogen and females taking testosterone, but as with everything else, it will take modern medicine decades to figure that out and hundreds of thousands will die for the sake of pharmaceutical profits. Oh well, free will.

  50. Hey, it’s for the kids, right? Who needs a competent French teacher. Can’t wait until we hear about employers forced to comply with the weirdos in society.

  51. When a teacher has 150+ students a day… how are you supposed to remember a DA** pronoun?

    The same crew who talks about “tolerance…” HYPOCRISY!

  52. From now on stop using the new gender pronoun and refer to the person as “the science denier.” You’re not using a pronoun so you’re working within their system and calling them out at the same time.
