Some people suspect that some of these teachers posted by Libs of TikTok aren’t really teachers. How many pieced, tattooed, pink-haired non-binary teachers are out there anyway? We just did a post on Media Matters wanting Twitter to do something about the “groomer” slur, but as we pointed out in that post, these teachers so often see parents as the problem and themselves as the solution: “I’m your parents now,” and “I’m your mom now.”

This teacher says that once her second-grade class found out that a student had come to them with their pronouns, all of them changed their pronouns. And the real shame is that they have to hide this from “unsafe” adults like their parents. Teachers always see themselves as the “safe space” for the students in their classes.

Yep. “Who wants to change their pronouns!”
