Virginia Teacher Who Refused To Use “Transgender Pronouns” Reinstated After Suspension


You may have heard of the Virginia teacher Tanner Cross who was suspended because he refused to call students by transgender pronouns.

If you haven’t heard the story before- here’s the transcript of what Cross said at a Loudoun County school board meeting, according to 10News :

My name is Tanner Cross and I am speaking out of love for those who suffer with gender dysphoria. ‘60 Minutes’ this past Sunday interviewed over 30 young people who transitioned, but they felt led astray because lack of push back or how easy it was to make physical changes to their bodies in just three months. They are now detransitioning. It’s not my intent to hurt anyone, but there are certain truths that we must face when ready. We condemn school policies, like 8040 and 8035, because it would damage children and defile the holy image of God. I love all my students, but I will never lie to them regardless of the consequences. I’m a teacher, but I serve God first and I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl, and vice versa, because it is against my religion, it’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child, and it is sinning against our God.”

For his honesty, this brave teacher was suspended by the school.


Well today, a judge ruled that Cross should return to work right away.

What a victory for religious rights!

According to the Washington Post:

A Virginia judge said Tuesday that a Loudoun County teacher suspended for refusing to address transgender students with their preferred names and pronouns should return to work immediately.

In a seven-page ruling, 20th Circuit Judge James E. Plowman Jr. sharply rebuked the Loudoun County Public Schools system for its treatment of the teacher, Tanner Cross. Plowman called Loudoun’s attempts to discipline Cross “an unconstitutional action . . . which has silenced others from speaking publicly on the issue.”

Per Virginia law, the school system can petition for a review of the judge’s ruling within 15 days.

Many parents in Loudoun county had come out in favor of Tanner Cross:

Parents are seeing the evils of Critical Race Theory and the pitting of the “woke” agenda against the Right.

Tanner Cross is the first, but hopefully not the last, teacher to stand up against is child abuse.

It’s great to see a win against this evil idealogy.
