I am so old that I can recall when Scotland was a free country:
A teenage student at Mearns Academy in Aberdeenshire, Scotland was removed from class, suspended, and later expelled after telling his teacher: “Sir, there are only two genders.”
According to the 17-year-old student known only as Murray, the events unfolded after the teacher pulled up a website in front of the whole class that only gave two gender options.
“[The teacher] basically started going off on a tangent about how bad that was, and how old fashioned it was,” Murray told a YouTube account known as ‘I, Hypocrite’.
This is when the student stated the scientific fact there are only two genders. In turn, he was removed from class, later given the reason his ‘opinion’ was ‘not inclusive’. However the teacher stated his own opinion, that there are more than two genders, is “acceptable” in contrast.
After sitting outside the classroom for thirty minutes, the teacher finally came out to speak with Murray, who recorded the entire encounter.
“You’re entitled to your opinion,” the teacher told Murray.
“If I am, then why did you kick me out of class? It’s not very inclusive,” Murray inquired.
Within a day of the video being posted, it had gone viral.
The school came across the video and called Murray and his mother in for a meeting.
According to Murray, during the meeting the school officials made clear he was not getting in trouble for his comment. Rather because he recorded the teacher which is a direct violation of one of the school’s rules.
The school suspended Murray for one week and told him they would have to restrict his phone usage. Murray conceded he violated a school policy and because the video went so viral this was not an outlandish punishment.
However, the school also made clear in the meeting that Murray could not talk to the press. If he did, they threatened harsher punishment.
Go here to read the appalling rest. He had a GoFundMe page to pay for his additional educational expenses due to the expulsion. His account has now been banned by GoFundMe. The Techlords and the Left always walk arm in arm.
