Two middle school educators in Oregon were fired for emailing Daily Wire co-founder and editor emeritus Ben Shapiro about their thoughts on transgender bathroom policy, with the school district claiming it amounted to using school resources to work on a political campaign.
The Grants Pass school board voted 4-3 to terminate assistant principal Rachel Damiano and science teacher Katie Medart, KTVL reported.
In response to pending legislation in Oregon dealing with transgender students in bathrooms and locker rooms, the teachers wrote to Shapiro about an alternative proposal designed to “move away from an argument about ‘right’ or ‘wrong.’ It instead focuses on ways in which we can be respectful to all parties involved, while ultimately protecting the hearts and minds of our youth.”
The proposal said that bathrooms could be re-designated as “anatomically-male” and “anatomically-female” and that anyone who did not feel comfortable using those facilities could request a private space. The women called their advocacy for the alternative policy “I Resolve.”
