Florida Teacher Sobs She Can No Longer Share Details About Her ‘Marriage’ to ‘Trans-Fem Person’ with First-Graders

The Twitter account known as Libs of Tik Tok featured a video of a Florida first-grade teacher bemoaning how she can possibly proceed with teaching the six-year-olds in her class when the state’s new Parental Rights in Education Act prevents her from discussing personal details about her “marriage” to a “trans-fem person.”

“As an elementary school teacher in Florida,” the teacher tearfully begins in the video, “this new bill has really been weighing on me a lot.”

She continues:

I teach first grade, which means my classroom is one of the ones that will be directly affected. For those of you who haven’t been in the classroom for awhile, one of the things that teachers always do at back-to-school night and meet-the-teacher, and things like that, as they like send home this cute, little like “meet the teacher” thing where it has a little bio about us, some of our favorite stuff, just so that you know who we are.

“How do I do that next year?” she asked. “Do I lie? And not talk about my marriage? Do I pretend I’m single? Do I invalidate my spouse’s stance as a trans-fem person? Or, do I put my job on the line to introduce myself?”

“What am I supposed to do?” she sobbed. “I don’t know.”

The video received multiple replies, including several that pointed out most first-graders have little interest in their teachers’ personal lives:

Several other Twitter users commented the teacher appears quite self-involved about her sexual identity:

Christina Pushaw, press secretary to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), also tweeted, “How hard is it to just not talk to 1st graders about your personal life, period?”

“I am from a very liberal part of Southern California,” Pushaw continued. “No doubt I had teachers of different orientations. I would not have KNOWN THAT as a child though, because PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARIES used to mean something.”

DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education Act into law Monday.

“It ensures parents can send their kids to kindergarten without gender ideology being injected into instruction and they will be notified and have the right to decline healthcare services offered at schools,” DeSantis said.

    An individual who looks for affirmation from 1st graders should nit be teaching. Period.
