A video has surfaced that shows a teacher — speaking in a heavy Scottish accent — invoking “national school authority policy” after allegedly kicking a student out of class for declaring there are only two genders.
There is no information about who the teacher is, where or when the video was recorded, or who the student is.
Over the weekend, the user who posted the YouTube video titled, “My Teacher Kicked Me Out of Class for Saying There are Two Genders,” had the following to say: “Just to be clear, this isn’t me. This is a reupload from Reddit.” But pages seen on the Reddit link appeared to be deleted, though hundreds of comments remain.
As the video begins, the student appears to position his cellphone in such a way that the teacher won’t be able to see that their conversation is about to be recorded — and then the teacher walks through what appears to be a classroom door.
“You’re entitled to your opinion,” the teacher says.
“If I am, then why did you kick me out of class?” the student — who speaks with what sounds like an American accent — shot back. “That’s not very inclusive.”
“You aren’t being inclusive,” the teacher argues, adding that “this is an inclusive school.”
The teacher adds that the student’s notion that there aren’t any other genders except male or female “is not inclusive.”
The student starts arguing again, but the teacher interrupts by saying “you’re choosing to make an issue of this” and that the student had an “opportunity to keep quiet.”
‘Could you please keep that opinion to your own house?’
When the student continues arguing the two-genders-only point, the teacher grows flustered and asks, “Could you please keep that opinion to your own house? Thank you. Not in this school.”
But the student does not. In fact, he presses on, saying it’s unfair that the teacher gets to state his opinion in class but the student is silenced.
‘I am stating what is national school authority policy, OK?’
“I am not putting my opinion out,” the teacher replies. “I am stating what is national school authority policy, OK?”
But when the student argues that the more-than-two-genders policy “isn’t scientific whatsoever,” the still-flustered teacher offers that “not every policy is scientific.”
“Take this somewhere else …” the teacher soon adds. “The authority’s point of view is very clear … that we make no discrimination on the grounds of—”
Then the student cuts off the teacher: “I’m not making any discrimination. I’m simply saying there are two genders. Male and female.”
“I’m sorry,” the teacher says, “but you chose to make an issue of making a point which was contrary to policy.”
The teacher adds in a lower voice that the student is “making bad choices.”
