Idaho Government Signs Bill Giving Teachers the Freedom to Use Correct Pronouns without Being Sued or Fired

That's where we are now -- it takes a special act of a state legislature to give people permission to speak the obvious truth.

Idaho school districts soon will have to remove any requirements that teachers use transgender students' preferred pronouns.

Gov. Brad Little quietly signed House Bill 538 Monday. The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Ted Hill, R-Eagle, broadly enacts protections for public employees, including teachers, who are unwilling to use someone's preferred name and pronouns. It had overwhelming support among Statehouse Republicans.

The bill bars teachers from referring to a student by a name or pronoun that doesn't align with their birth sex, unless the teacher has parental consent. It also gives teachers the right to sue their district if they're disciplined for refusing to use a transgender student's preferred name or pronoun.

Little "supports policies that advance free speech and parental rights," and "this bill does both," Madison Hardy, the governor's spokeswoman, said by email. "While Gov. Little expects state employees to treat each other and members of the community with dignity and respect, he does not support government compelling speech at risk of penalty or excluding parents from significant decisions impacting a child's health and wellbeing."

Even though most news is bad, it's important to recognize that some people are fighting on the right side of history, and sometimes winning.

John Sexton notes this in an article about The Cass Review -- which called "transgender" therapy untested, unproven, and dangerous -- being published in the UK.

Even the leftwing gonzo-gay Labour Party was forced to admit that the Cass Review raised "very troubling" questions about the insane Rush to "Affirm" policy that was made up, Deborah-Birx-like, a few years ago with no evidence to support it whatseover.

Today, The Cass Review was released in the UK and the Labour Party was quick to say it agreed with all of its recommendations. Yvette Cooper, who holds the title of shadow home secretary, told an interviewed at Sky News she found the report "very troubling." That came as a shock to Telegraph columnist Madeline Grant.


Ms Cooper, blinking as if she was seeing daylight for the first time (perhaps the effect of all those years with her head in the sand) replied that the report's conclusions were "very troubling". This fire is very troubling, said the man with a box of matches and a jug of kerosene.

She could have said "we were wrong about this, I'm sorry we spent several years monstering everyone who raised the alarm -- especially within our own party". But she didn't. "Labour accepts all of the recommendations" she nodded sagely. Black was now actually black after all, and all those years that we said it was white are just water under the bridge.

...What was really important about the report, said Ms Cooper, was "not having all this get caught up in culture wars".

Ah yes, culture wars. Those low-status squabbles which only the Right ever indulges in and which only ever go one way. For example, "don't mutilate children!" = culture war. "Let's mutilate children!" = not a culture war.

As Grant points out, if it weren't for the "culture wars" (again, meaning resistance to whatever the left is pushing) there would never have been a Cass Review and the Labour Party would not now be saying it agreed with all of these conclusions. It's only because people pushed back (the culture warriors as the media frames it) that we've gotten to this point. And for that reason, the culture warriors deserve some credit and some praise.

Related: On Talk TV, the interviewer flatly refused to use a guest's stupid "they/them" pronouns.

But the people who pushed it aren't culture warriors, right?

When I was younger, I had no idea how bad the world was. It seems there are two choices in life.
(a) seek the truth and hold to it, and watch everyone else destroy the world, or
(b) go along to get along, and have fun destroying the world ignorant of what you are doing.

We (the Right, Conservative, sane people, ... whomever) were right about:
- Russia
- covid
- debt, mmt, and inflation
- defund the police
- gay marriage
- trans-mania
....

And yet we still have to watch the slow kids figure out that we are right about
- China
- the border
- muslim invasion of the West
- de-industrialization
....

36 Althouse had a story about a tranny teacher challenging their "Ok Groomer" law.

And just reading the article in the FNM is insane.

The tranny wants to be able to punish students/parents if they don't use the pronouns he wants so the FNM claims its his "freedom of speech".

What the f*ck? Forcing someone to use your custom pronouns is literally the opposite of freedom.

Conservative economics only works in a society where most people, and the government, follow conservative social mores as well.

What's going on now is the mechanics to fight are being moved downward toward the individual. We used to need big papers or television stations.

Now a person in his own house can publish and reach out to others by his own effort, like blogs and YT and other un-mass marketing.

Why does it take so long for people to figure that out?

People telling you what pronouns to use... when referring to them... when they are not there??? This was always a stupid argument and nothing more than an assertion of power -- "kneel before me, slave. you will henceforth avert you grammar before me."

Yet it is taking years for people to tell them to just f-- off.

Same with the "death to america" bullshit. By my logic, if you chant that on US soil, then anyone has a right to decide "death to you" and no American would convict them. Isn't "death to america" the definition of insurrection? How do we tolerate this?

84 My company just hired a tranny (guy what thinks he's a woman).

I have no idea how I'll behave around this person. Best i can do is avoid him, or try to be polite.

Our salvation might have to come in the form of whoever would have a higher victim status, but refuse to see themselves as victims.

It's a tough needle to thread, but we're seeing some indicators of the pushback we need, from others groups.

88 I never believed that Idaho potatoes were "all that" until I ate potatoes actually in Idaho.

They were so much better. I guess it's the French concept of terroir, but with tubers instead of grapes.

Because you have to declare a party in order to run for township committee and it's a heck of a lot better than identifying as a Democrat, IMO, considering how absurdly left they are at this point..

A place I worked at some years ago, there was a maintenance guy who claimed to be a gal. Kinda looked like Alex Karras, and not in a good way.

Management had him come give us a talking to. It was what you'd expect it to be, but there was a room full of credentialed professionals, being "educated" by a dumbass in makeup. The frosty reception he received was enough.

Nobody had to say anything. The message was sent, loud and clear.

I worked with a guy who looked like Jim Carey playing the female bodybuilder.

Then I worked with a dude who painted his fingernails, dyed half his hair pink and either had manboobs or just started taking hormones.

Needless to say I never called them by their names. I couldn’t play that game.

I recommend never referring to it in the third person, if possible. If you must, just use its name as the pronoun.

As in, I agree/disagree with Tiffany regarding Tiffany's suggestion that we do "x."

If they act "normal" just act normal back to them, if they act weird and you have no reason to interact with them, then yes avoid them like the plague.

111 At one job I had a coworker go tranny.

He went from a pudgy, balding, hairy 40 year old to a pudgy, balding, hairy 40 year old in school girl outfits and pigtails.

It was very, very disturbing and I hate to think how many young women he had told to rub the lotion on its skin...

117 Regarding "immanent" attacks on Israel....

I sort of think this is mostly bullshit. Perhaps cover for the US to do something with Iran and then turn around and tell Israel to cool it.

Whether that "doing something" is sending more pallets of cash or bombing some long unused IRGC FOP is debatable.

>I had two contractor/coworkers go tranny on me. Both were very pleasant likeable human beings, but fucked up some how emotionally in the head.

One used to like to run his/her hands thru my hair, and the other looked like a linebacker in a sundress. I liked them both, and I hope the found what they were seeking.

Footage showing Dozens of Interceptions by the Israeli Iron Dome and MIM-104 “Patriot” Air Defense Batteries over Northern Israel within the last few minutes following a Large Barrage of Rockets and Drones launched by Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon; in my opinion this could be an attempt to Exhaust the Stocks of Israeli Surface-to-Air Missile Batteries in the North of the Country, before a Larger Attack using Land-Attack Cruise and other more Advanced Missiles.
