Peter Vlaming of Virginia was a French teacher at West Point High School until last December, when the Christian man was fired for using the wrong pronoun to refer to a transgender student.
This alone shouldn't come as a shock, since there have been many cases of employees being terminated for refusing to bow down to left-wing rhetoric, but the specific scenario that got Mr. Vlaming fired just goes to show how harsh and frankly, insane, the far-left "LGBTQ" community has become.
See, Mr. Vlaming didn't "misgender" the student – who was born a girl but identified as a boy – in a derogatory manner or even directly.
Rather, in the heat of the moment, as the student was about to walk into a wall, Mr. Vlaming shouted out,
"Don't let her hit the wall!"
That's the statement that got Mr. Vlaming fired, in a unanimous decision by the school board after the student complained.
