Libs of Tik Tok is on fire today with videos of teachers, so it was difficult to narrow it down to one. In light of the hysteria over Florida voting to ban discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity in grade 3 and younger, though, we had to go with this one. For one thing, we finally know how to pronounce ‚ÄúMx.‚ÄĚ We‚Äôre not sure where this teacher is in their transition, so we‚Äôre going with ‚Äúthey‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúthem.‚ÄĚ They thought it was a good idea to come out to their class as trans, and even though the fourth graders were curious, we don‚Äôt think the teacher quite got it across. ‚ÄúIs it like a tomboy?‚ÄĚ Well, no, it‚Äôs trans.

Boundaries simply don‚Äôt exist for these people. If you wonder why states are starting to legislate this stuff to protect small children from sexual influence they should not be burdened with, look no further than TikTok.

There is absolutely no reason for a teacher to ‚Äúcome out‚ÄĚ to their students. This is the kind of inappropriate, creepy behavior that should absolutely be banned. https://t.co/YRMC6qmFjV

WTH? Why does any adult feel the need to discuss their sexuality or mental issues with children?
And why are there so many employeed and entrusted to teach large groups of children doing that ūüí©? pic.twitter.com/ocXwa3LOp1

I really liked being in class where the teachers did not over share about their personal life and choices and just focused on school. Students do not and should not know everything.

I didn‚Äôt even know my 4th grade teacher‚Äôs first name. What happened to professional boundaries?
‚ÄĒ Mr. H ūüá®ūüá¶ (@hillsje) March 17, 2022
I don‚Äôt understand how educators are not aware that this crosses boundaries that as a teacher should not be crossed. Personal information about yourself should be shared as seldom as possible. Yes/no answers to students, or change the subject. She should not be filming this.

Needing validation from 4th grade children on your sexuality only shows deeply rooted mental health issues. This person should not be in the position of teaching.

Is that going to be on a test?

Can you imagine an hour lesson plan of this for 5 year olds. That‚Äôs the fight that‚Äôs going on in Florida.

Is this the return to normalcy I keep hearing about?

‚ÄúDoes anyone have any more questions for me/about me so I can continue to talk about myself/my experiences?‚ÄĚ

Seriously, why is this on video?
Right. It's not "look at me, I accomplished something noteworthy," it's just demanding attention for a made-up reason.

Attention and validation on social media.
Not a good reason, but it is the main reason.

This has been planned for years. These people have all gone into teaching and social work. It‚Äôs all about the children
