Christian Teacher, Peter Vlaming Fired for Not Using Transgender Student’s Pronouns

Christian French teacher Peter Vlaming is suing the Virginia school district that fired him for refusing to use a transgender student’s preferred masculine pronoun.

According to WTVR, the West Point school board unanimously decided to terminate Vlaming’s appointment when a 9th-grade student transitioned to male and requested to be referred to as “he” or “him.” Vlaming refused to use the pronouns because he believed he would be lying, but he compromised initially and told the school that he would use the student’s full name instead of the pronouns.

On Oct. 31, 2018, all of Vleming’s students were walking around the classroom wearing virtual reality goggles, according to The Washington Post. The transgender student was about to walk into something when Vlaming asked another student to help out, shouting, “Don’t let her hit the wall.”

That was apparently the last straw for the transgender kid, who withdrew from Vlaming’s class. Following the incident, school officials suspended Vlaming for insubordination, and the school board later fired him, Faithwire reported.

“By failing to follow the directive he was therefore discriminating and creating a hostile environment,” Superintendent Laura Abel said.

Vlaming who was fired in December 2018, filed a lawsuit against the school district for violating his freedom of speech and religion. Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative law firm, represents him.

“Vlaming’s conscience and religious practice prevent him from intentionally lying,” the lawsuit claims. “And he sincerely believes that referring to a female as a male by using an objectively male pronoun is telling a lie.”

According to the teacher’s lawyer, Vlaming attempted to accommodate the transgender student, but “the school board didn’t care how well Peter treated this student … [the board’s goal] was to compel conformity.”

The lawsuit also claims that a group of students walked out in protest over Vlaming’s firing. “… [H]e wasn’t fired for something he said. He was fired for what he didn’t say.”

“I’m totally happy to use the new name,” Vlaming said. “I’m happy to avoid female pronouns not to offend, because I’m not here to provoke. … But I can’t refer to a female as a male, and a male as a female in good conscience and faith.”

  1. This goes beyond restricting speech, don’t yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater, to compelling speech. I don’t recall any Founding Document that allows the government to compel a citizen to use certain words. This is the primary reason for which Canadian Jordan Peterson, famous or infamous on YouTube, decided to step out and step into the spotlight.
    There are a couple of other issues that are also important. How does the right or rather privilege of one who has decided to transition from the sex of their birth to the other (while the DNA remains unchanged) trump the right of anyone to practice his religion? There is evidence that people who transition their gender aren’t always pleased with doing so later. Buyer’s remorse? I can’t answer that but it is not wise to allow a child to do this. It might even be called child neglect or child abuse. The horribly high rate of suicide among transgendered people would support the thesis that allowing a ninth grader to transition instead of seeking mental health help is child abuse. Don’t we still see a mental health crisis when a whole individual identifies as a double amputee? Doesn’t society get them help for mental or emotional issues rather than helping them with surgery?

    • There is no such thing as “changing gender.” The SCIENCE involved proves that gender is an immutable trait. Every cell in the body contains either XX or XY chromosomes. Journalists who claim that climate change is “reliable science” just PRETEND that it is possible to actually change gender! The ignorance of the public is astonishing.
