Andrew Klavan has a long-standing observation about the Left: “Everything they do turns out the opposite of what they say they intend,” and that extends to LGBTQ issues. In an effort to create “safety” for LGBTQ students, a Florida school district decided to force a male P.E. teacher to watch a female student change in a boys’ locker room, all under the guise of transgender rights. Klavan highlighted this “insane” story on Wednesday’s episode of “The Andrew Klavan Show.”
“It is hard to pick the most insane story of the year, in an insane political year like this one, but this has got to be close,” said Klavan.
Klavan cited a Federalist article by Joy Pullmann describing a female-to-male student whose coach refused to watch her change in the locker room. As punishment, he was transferred to another school for not “fulfilling his duty.” Here’s an excerpt from Pullmann’s report:
With a “gag order,” school administrators forbade teachers from talking about the change, and ordered a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed girl in the Chasco Middle School locker room, the letter says. When he refused to “knowingly place himself in a position to observe a minor female in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress,” administrators told him “he will be transferred to another school as discipline for ‘not doing your job in the locker room.’”
“So this is a girl who thinks she’s a boy, they let her in the boys locker room, and the first time she walked in she caught the boys, literally, with their pants down,” Klavan explained. “They were embarrassed, right? They didn’t like it. So the school put a gag order, forbidding teachers from talking about the change.”
