Finally someone standing up to these radical social justice wokists at LCPS. They have made our county the laughingstock of the nation, stamping on the values of the vast silent majority on behalf of the minute screeching minority.

So, choosing to ignore the policy of of your workplace (i.e in this case, calling people by their chosen names..), because of some religious belief, is grounds to sue employers and force them to hire you back? Oh Ok. I love how folks call him "Tanner". You're right, we are a laughingstock. But, not for the reasons you think.

Read more carefully. It is not their chosen names. It is their chosen pronouns. Big difference. No problem calling a male Lisa or a female John. But we should not have to redefine our own words because of someone else's extreme need. He is a male. She is a female. Someone's preference does not change that.
