Student Slaps Teacher with "Transphobia" Charge

May 10, 2019

Anxious and distressed teachers are contacting Liberty Counsel seeking help. They're often alone in facing the LGBT steamroller, which is crushing dissent across America. That's why they're reaching out for guidance and legal assistance.

We're pleased to give it--and we're only able to do so thanks to generous friends like you.

+ + Teacher hits "transgender tripwire"

One high school Spanish teacher sent us a plea for aid after he hit a transgender tripwire in class. When the teacher taught how feminine and masculine cases are used in Spanish, a student asked what to do if the gender of the person is not clear.

The teacher did his best to explain that gender is biologically determined, but the student took offense and filed a grievance against this teacher, alleging "transphobia."

We prepared the teacher to answer the charge in a meeting with school district authorities. Now he's awaiting a decision. If the district tries to punish him for the "crime" of using correct Spanish pronouns, we will defend him--vigorously.

Your gift today will help us defend this teacher and many others. And your support will be effectively doubled, thanks to a $100,000 Challenge Grant made by good friends of this ministry.

Your gift today will essentially do twice as much to defend life, liberty, faith and family in America.

The attack is severe and unrelenting. Please make your gift now.

This Spanish teacher is just one example of the battle taking place in America's public schools. The conscience rights of teachers across the country are being trampled by politically correct school districts and LGBT bullies.

These bullies demand that teachers bow down to their radical agenda by using false pronouns to refer to "transgender" students. Teachers are told to live a lie and participate in a fiction or pay the price which could mean their careers.

+ + Fighting the "gender identity" takeover

Radical "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" (SOGI) activists are working to transform what it means to be male or female. Sadly, young people across this country are being victimized--and so are teachers.

The "gender identity" takeover is underway as the SOGI agenda steamrolls through our culture. This radical movement seeks to eliminate the legal definition of biological sex and replace it with a person's chosen "gender identity," whatever that may be.

Right now in Congress, SOGI activists are pushing the so-called “Equality Act” to cement this in the law (we are aggressively fighting this bill). This dangerous bill would redefine sex and gender in America.

We’re also fighting dangerous bans on change counseling in California, Maryland and in several Florida municipalities. These laws ban minors from receiving voluntary counseling from licensed professionals to reduce or eliminate unwanted same-sex attractions or behaviors, or gender confusion.

Counselors stand ready to provide life-saving counseling to minors who want to reconnect with their God-given gender. But the radical SOGI activists and their army of attorneys at groups like the Human Rights Campaign have decided that any effort to help minors who are struggling with issues of same-sex attraction must be banned!

+ + How Liberty Counsel can WIN this battle!

I believe Liberty Counsel is uniquely positioned to take down these laws banning change counseling and gain a decisive ruling at the U.S. Supreme Court that will protect our liberties for generations to come.

We have been fighting the SOGI battles in court since 2012 and are leading the effort in these key cases underway.

It is not a question of if, but when the Supreme Court will take one of these cases and implement what it has already clearly stated -- that these change ban laws violate the First Amendment and must be struck down!

+ + Your gift is needed to win these battles...

...but we can't wage them effectively without the support of friends like you.

That's why I ask you to consider a generous gift to help Liberty Counsel defend you and your family's First Amendment freedom in court.

Your gift is critical--especially now as Liberty Counsel's caseload escalates and the attacks on freedom grow. And because of the $100,000 Challenge Grant, your support now is effectively doubled!

Thank you for your generosity and for partnering with Liberty Counsel in defense of life, family and freedom!

With kind regards,

Mat Staver
Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel
