Such are the times that we now live in that to simply proclaim pure, unadulterated facts in the classroom can result in you getting kicked out. To affirm what everyone has always known throughout human history has now become a very risky thing to do.
Today the classroom is among the worst places for facing the full wrath of the PC authorities for simply stating truth and repeating facts. Students now will never know if in stating what happens to be true they will be censored or disciplined for their efforts.
But this is happening more and more. Consider this doozy of a story coming out of Scotland. Poor Murray never knew what he got himself in for when he simply repeated a fact that has been universally accepted throughout human history. But it seems that as the West further dissolves into insanity this is now verboten.
Here is how the story goes:
A teacher in Scotland kicked a student out of his class after the student insisted that human beings need oxygen to survive. Video captured by the student on a smartphone shows the teacher lecturing the student outside the classroom for not being “inclusive.”
The brief video, filmed by a student named Murray and supplied by the Archbishop Cranmer Blog, shows the teacher becoming increasingly annoyed by Murray who calmly keeps insisting upon the fact that humans need to breathe. It is not known who the teacher is or what school this took place in.
“Why did you kick me out of class? It’s not very inclusive of you,” said Murray. “I’m sorry, but what you were saying is not very inclusive,” said Murray’s teacher, “and this is an inclusive school.” Murray then asked why what he said was not inclusive. “Not everyone needs oxygen,” answered the teacher. “That’s your opinion,” insisted Murray.
“That is my opinion and that is an opinion which is acceptable in this school,” said the teacher appealing to Scottish national school policy. “And I think yours, saying we all need oxygen, is not inclusive.” As Murray again explains to his teacher, “People have to breathe oxygen,” the teacher becomes visibly annoyed, bites his lip, and turns away.
Oh wait, I think I slightly misread all that. My apologies. The student was not booted out for saying that humans need to breathe oxygen, but for something else which is equally and fully factual: he said there are only two genders, and that was enough for this thought police indoctrination authority to have him removed from the classroom.
So simply replace the bit about oxygen with gender and you have the actual article. See this link for the full story: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/watch-teacher-kicks-student-out-of-class-for-saying-therere-only-two-genders
In my books the two things are basically identical. Both are simple statements of fact. Both have been acknowledged by all of mankind throughout history. Both are uncontroversial and incontrovertible facts. But today where PC madness reigns supreme, and where irrationality trumps reason, fact, and logic, we now have come to the absurd place of turning on students who dare to say the obvious.
Um, Murray is absolutely right. You are either male or female – end of story. Sure, there is a tiny miniscule percentage of folks who fall into the intersex condition, where genuine genital or chromosomal ambiguity may exist. But that has absolutely nothing to do with the trans madness sweeping the West.
Now because of activist adults twisting the minds of young vulnerable children we have an epidemic of messed up kids who are male at birth but now think they are female – or vice versa. No one was even remotely thinking this way just a few short years ago. But now every other kid in the West is thinking this way.
Where did these thoughts come from? Certainly not from the children themselves. They come from irresponsible and negligent adults who are foisting their cruel and diabolical gender bender ideology onto impressionable young children. That is child abuse folks. There is no other way to describe it.
And the radical homosexual and transsexual lobbies are far from finished. The militants have already destroyed marriage and family – the most universal, historic, important, and beneficial social institutions that we know of. Not satisfied with that, they are now working overtime to destroy biology, reality, rationality, logic, and reason. Not bad for a day’s work.
The secular left wrecking crew ultimately has the divine in its sights. But messing with the divine’s handiwork is a good place to begin. I am always reminded of the incisive words of G. K. Chesterton from his 1908 book Orthodoxy: “The secularists have not wrecked divine things; but the secularists have wrecked secular things, if that is any comfort to them. The Titans did not scale heaven; but they laid waste the world.”
If you are not yet convinced of this, just ask poor Murray.
