Ep 87 | Teacher FIRED for NOT USING TRANS PRONOUNS

One Virginia teacher was recently fired for refusing to refer to a trans student as "he" or "him." The teacher used the student's preferred first name and attempted to refrain from using pronouns altogether to avoid offending the student, but that wasn't good enough for the school's administration. The teacher is now suing the school for violating his religious freedom. Then, a story of a black girl having her dreadlocks cut by her white classmates at the school Karen Pence teaches at turns out to be false. Tim Pool angers feminists by describing his dating preferences, and the Church of Sweden proclaims Greta Thunberg a successor to Jesus Christ. Learn more about your ad choices.
