“Transmasculine” teacher awarded $60,000 because coworkers didn't refer to her as 'they'

StaffRebel Columnist

An elementary school teacher has been awarded $60,000 from her school district as compensation for harassment because her coworkers refused to use the pro-noun “they” when talking about her.

Daily Caller reports that while Leo Soell was born a woman, she prefers to identify as “transmasculine” and “genderqueer.” This apparently means that she doesn't have a gender.

In 2014, she had breast cancer and had her breasts amputated. With a more masculine appearance she changed her name to Leo and returned to school in 2015 where she says she was subject to ridicule.

Leo claims she was called hurtful names such as “miss” and “she”. If a student asked about Leo's sex, she was ordered to say that it was a private matter not suitable for discussion at school.

Soeli even claimed that some teachers planned to use the school’s only gender-neutral bathroom so she would have to wait a half-hour for her turn to use it.

An internal investigation conducted by the school found no proof of Soeli's alleged harassment.

However, despite the school agreeing to have Soeli referred to by the pronoun “they”, she said the harassment didn't stop and hired an attorney.

Oregon is the same state that fined a Christian bakery $135,000 for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake for a Lesbian couple. So, in order to prevent a similar fate, the school district agreed to pay Soeli $60,000.

In addition, the school district decided to introduce new policies to make the district more transgender-friendly, including requiring all teachers to refer to their co-workers as their preferred pro-noun.

How can an individual be considered and addressed as ‘they’ which implies more than one person? The kangaroo courts are really doing some nice back flips to accommodate and protect these human aberrations. It seems every day somebody somewhere tries to increase this extreme madness for personal attention plus the money is good too.

“dick head” if I hear any derogatory comments about my new gender identification name…watch out, I am tracking you down

Joseph Stalin recruited 1100 men whose assignment was to enter the seminary and become Catholic Priests. Their goal was to create disruption within the Catholic Church.
People of confused gender identity are being hired in the educational system, which seems to be doing the same as what Stalin set out to do.

It takes literally like ten seconds on Google to learn that the headline and content of this article are grossly misleading.

Bravo Zulu – the union is the reason "they"are allowed to teach. It seems if you’re in a union, you can get away with indoctrinating unsuspecting children. And now you can get away with projecting and forcing others to participate, in a very disturbed act of craziness, sanctioned by the kangaroo courts. Unions are a law unto themselves.

I’m going out on a limb here…..would “kinky” be acceptable, too? How about “perv”?
Thought so.

When are we ever going to stand up to the pansy bullies?????

Hey, it’s good gig if you can get it…. being perpetually offended I mean. I self-identify as a trans-species, gender-neutral, flight-challenged mallard duck. When people refuse to refer to me as such, I’m absolutely crushed and devastated. That should be worth about $60,000 a pop. My financial struggles are over! (Of course that hardly compensates for the crushing blow of non-acceptance… but I suppose I’ll take it)

And in french, these non binaries use the pronoun, “ILS.”

I certainly would NOT want ‘it’ to be my kids’ teacher. This is beyond ridiculous and this idiot leaves ‘itself’ wide open for harassment. I am sick of the whole ‘trans’ thing to start with…..this type of thing makes it very hard to take any of it with any seriousness.
commented 2016-05-24 19:53:05 -0400
And the same liberals can get away with hate speech in calling people racists, sexists, homophobes etc because they don’t like viewpoint of the other person

This is what I want a conservative govt to stand for

How can she be allowed to teach kids?

Be careful calling they “her”, they might sue you next!

I can’t imagine the ridicule this poor teacher would have gotten back in the 70’s. Actually they would have never been hired.

Liberals is not a gender . . . it’s a disease . . . just like Islam!

Next up for the SJW fascists is the normalization/legalization of pedophilia. All in a day’s work for your friendly neighborhood destroyers of civilization.

3 genders. Male, Female and Liberal. Problem solved.

Sooo we just disregard science and biology for these they people. Your either a Man or women thats it thats all folks.
commented 2016-05-24 16:35:17 -0400
And this is why no one who is of “weirdo gender suspicion” will ever work at my company.

If you were born with a swinging dick between your legs you are a male of the species.

If you were not born with a swinging dick between your legs you are a female of the species.

You can call yourself anything you like.

It seems the kangaroo courts also believe you should be paid to be allowed to call yourself anything you like.

My oldest daughter just told me she needs to have a 2×4 taken to her.

I would have to agree.

Sure glad my kids have a few brains and know how to use them.

Who said all the insane people are kept in the asylums?
Sounds to me like they are the ones in charge of our governments and ultimately our countries.
It’s time people started saying no to all these idiots and the MUSLIBS as well!

The other day I just happened to click on a YouTube vid where real trans-gendered people are quite pissed at these laws and unwanted recognition because they said it paints a target on their backs. And were suing several news entities over disinformation regarding their plight.
This is just a propaganda campaign by the sick & perverted! Once upon a time – if a person claimed to be more than one person (they) or someone they weren’t – they would be locked away from the normal people – proving the fact that the Lunatics Are Running the Asylum!!
commented 2016-05-24 15:43:17 -0400
The parents of the students of that school — indeed, the parents of the whole school board district — should demand that the sick pervert return the money and also be fired. Unless they are all lefty liberal lunatics too. If that’s the case, there is no hope for education in Oregon.

I am sick of hearing about all these weird freaky people. Don’t they realize that they can get help for what ails them.

What the eff is a Trannie, what the eff is a Bi and a Leslie. All these conditions come under the same ailment as Liberalism. An Effing Mental Disorder.

The Liberals and dippers are in league with " them "

" THEY" are a major reason for the downfall of the west
" THEY" are in control of the leagally system including courts
commented 2016-05-24 15:14:11 -0400
Let’s hope the adults put a stop to this nonsense soon. If they want to be called the name that they wish others to call them, then they should engrave it into their foreheads, in flashing neon lights. Otherwise they should check themselves into the local mental institution, for being intolerant of others.

what a stupid cunt!!!
commented 2016-05-24 14:54:27 -0400
Yeah….give her $60,000 because people didn’t know what to call her/him/it. But don’t worry, it is government money, so it won’t cost you anything!!
