Pansexual Teacher Fired From School In Florida After Discussing Her Sexuality With Students: Report
A Florida teacher alleges she was dismissed for sharing her pansexuality with her middle school students, who she then requested to create images of their own sexual orientations.
Casey Scott, a Cape Coral art instructor explained that her pupils were inquisitive about her sexual orientation, so she told them she was pansexual during a lecture in March. Scott stated that a conversation occurred in class, and as a result, she is now fired.
A pansexual is someone who is attracted to persons of all genders, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
Scott, who is happily married, stated that the students at Trafalgar Middle School then made flags reflecting their own sexuality and gender identities, which ranged from transgender and non-binary to gay.
Before authorities forced her to take them down, the first-year teacher hung their artwork on her classroom door. They indicated it would be best if she got rid of them right away. Scott stated that she folded up the photos and threw them away in the trash.
According to Lee School District officials, some pupils accepted her clarification of her sexuality, while others were perplexed, according to a local station. As indicated by the authorities, the issue enraged several parents and kids, who wrote to the administration to express their disgust.
Scott, who was on probation and was not a member of the teachers’ union, was finally ordered not to return to campus and that her agreement was being ended.
According to the publication, district administrators blamed her firing on her failure to follow the curriculum. The termination occurred only days before Gov. Ron DeSantis outlawed gender identity and sexual orientation training for children in kindergarten through fourth grade.
Backers of the “Parents’ Rights Bill” believe that sexual content is unsuitable for young kids and that the law protects both them and their parents.
The measure has been called the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by critics, who claim it breeds hatred against the LGBTQ population.
