A viral TikTok video unbelievably shows a liberal “woke” teacher who is more concerned with getting the pronouns of students correct rather than teaching them reading, writing, and arithmetic.
“Guys… I messed up. I. Messed. Up,” the teacher begins on the video, wiping her face as if she is horrified by what she has done.
“So, I had a kid on Monday… they said their pronouns were she/her. Then on Wednesday… yesterday, they came to me and they said, ‘You know what? My pronouns are they/them’,” she stated.
“I want you in class to say ‘they/them’. Okay! Cool! Great!” she recounted. “They come to class today. There’s names on desks in groups for assigned seats. They can’t find their’s cause I guess my first class knocked it off,” the teacher continued.
“So, I go to the class, ‘Hey… is she in anyone’s group? Does anyone see her name?” she says as she grimaces and makes impressively bad facial expressions. “It took me five minutes to realize what I did.”
“So, someone asked the question yesterday, ‘What do you do when you mess up?’ Well, we all mess up,” the liberal educator emphasized.
“So, what I did when ‘they’ were sitting by themselves, I approached ‘them’ and said, ‘I screwed up, didn’t I?'” the teacher asked the student in question. “And ‘they’ said, ‘Yep!’ And I said, ‘I am so sorry. That is completely 100 percent my fault. I apologize. I will not get it wrong moving forward. You know, please know I heard you when you told me your pronouns and I will get it right. That was totally my bad. I apologize.'”
“So, that’s what you do. You own it. You apologize. You know, ‘they’… you know, ‘they’ were happy that I came over to them. ‘They’ were disappointed in me. I just saw the look of disappointment and I was just like so disappointed in myself. But we just get better. We learn, we grow, we get better. I will not let that happen again!” she emotionally vowed.

The response to the video was, as expected, general disgust at the employment of and emphasis on pronouns rather than on education which is a teacher’s primary duty to their students. The teacher’s gender is also being called into question and it is, indeed, hard to discern.
It should be noted that not all teachers are like this but you see this more and more in a “woke” America that is fixated on gender and social justice.
The consensus of many of those who watched the video was that you should get your children out of the public school system as fast as possible.
One commenter asked a very astute question that Americans probably have running through their minds: “Honestly question. How can you teach proper English and when to use nouns and pronouns in a sentence or speech when you encourage the kids to use whatever pronouns that want literally any time they feel like it?” Enquiring minds want to know.

The teacher was mocked on social media and others were simply outraged:
Takes a real man to admit when he’s wrong.

no concern with a child who just out of the blue decides to flip the switch a few days later and ask to be called something else. no, that’s just simply accepted. no questioning it? no worry over maybe there’s something deeper going on here?

Let’s play the movie forward.
If we keep entertaining this ideological BS; how many years until we fire ppl (I actually think this has already happened), fine ppl, arrest ppl, for accidentally using the wrong pronouns?
I say less than 10.

Boy homeschooling is looking more and more desirable every time you post a video from a teacher or a school.

The pronoun of the person speaking above is THIS/IT. I tried so hard but I couldn’t understand anything THIS thing is saying. I’m confused about IT’s looks too. IT sounds like a female though IT has bigger arms than me (23 yo male). Anyone else confused about THIS?

I can’t imagine trying to be a public school teacher in today’s hyper woke world.

This is moral insanity.
If you are a public school teacher and you agree with this, you should quit….and leave the education field.
This is educational malpractice.

No wonder parents insisting on home education for their children is on the rise.
