I called a trans boy a girl by mistake and it may cost me my job

A teacher has been suspended and could face the sack after he ‘accidentally’ called a transgender pupil a ‘girl’ in class when the student identifies as a boy.

Joshua Sutcliffe, 27, who teaches maths at a state secondary school in Oxfordshire, said ‘Well done girls’ to the teenager and a friend when he spotted them working hard.

He apologised when corrected by the pupil, but six weeks later he was suspended from teaching after the pupil’s mother lodged a complaint.

Following an investigation, he has been summoned to a formal disciplinary hearing this week to face misconduct charges for ‘misgendering’.

    I guess one has to be very careful, now.

    “Good job, you maggots.”

    • The UK is toast.

      It fires a math teacher because of PC BS. Arrests a politician for quoting Churchill.

      And it allows head chopping Muslims to teach Koran hate for the sake of diversity.

    Maybe there should be a law requiring that all the special mommy’s and daddy’s have to start hanging signs around their kids neck so the rest of us in the real world can tell what gender or species their mentally ill, self absorbed, snowflake progeny wants to be on any given day.

    How perfectly Soviet of them. Make the citizen, in this case the teacher, deny plain reality in favour of your progressive ideology and you have them. Nothing breaks the will faster than having to recant and deny the truth or lose your livelihood, eh comrades.

    And remember, peace is war.

    This transsexual bullshit has gone far enough.
    You homos wanted to marry .
    Now you can marry.
    Now you got this Tranny crap— when nobody really gives a fuck about you.
    How can we tell if you are fucking Tranny ?
    Do you just act weird or stupid or something ?
    This is NOT a one way street where you can act like a Devout Muslim whenever it suits your fancy.
    So you ID as a transsexual .
    How is a NORMAL individual supposed to know ?
    WE just have to wait for a Lawsuit.

    The girl’s parents are child abusers. Child abusers should be shot dead.

      I’ll bet her/his father is just a wimp who does what he is told, and one I wouldn’t want covering my back in a dust up.

    “Misgendering”; the latest political crime. But it probably doesn’t count if your mistake involves a child who really is the opposite sex to which you named. Their feelings don’t count in this world of crazy.

    Batshit fucking lunacy.

    Mr. Sutcliffe, instead of whining about this obvious breach of sanity on the part of the school and society in general, stop being a wimp and fight back. Ask Professor Jordan for help, he seems to know where and how to place the punches.

      Some battles aren’t worth fighting. Tell them to F off and walk away.

  • canminuteman

    If that nearly cost you your job, you don’t want to work there anyway. Walk away and find a new job somewhere less insane.

  • Thomas Henderson

    There was a time when talking back to a teacher cost you a worse lickin’ at home.

    Authority has been turned on its head. The child instructs the adult not vice versa.

    This in a country that stamped a quarter of the world with its civilization. How great the fall has been.

    I was at the mall today and beyond the obligatory Xmas horseshit and the fact that I rarely go there except for this time of year, I was struck by two things.

    1 – White people who speak English are a distinct minority. In fact anyone who speaks English are a plurality at best.

    2 – About a third of everyone under the age of 25 with no obvious facial hair can’t be put in the male bucket or the female bucket from outward appearances alone.
