>>5611293 Sounds like one of those loopholes, is that a federal law or some backwards bible belt thing? I'd LOVE to see an educational institute in the UK try that, the tribunal would over be so fast the lawyers would probably leave their kids in the car with the engine running.
>>5611322 Nah, because as a teacher you're supposed to be a moral and ethical standard for children you are required to live by and uphold certain ethical frameworks that deal with things like lifestyle.
All they have to do is prove that it in any way changes your relationship with the students and you can be booted.
I don't see a problem with this. If parents are uncomfortable leaving their children in your care, then you're no use to the school as a teacher.
Is it fair? No, not really. But that's life. If you can't do the job you're hired for then you don't belong in that job.
Note that I'm not implying this will be an issue everywhere you go, but if it obviously is an issue in your area and you try to force it anyway because "muh equal rights" then you are just an entitled piece of shit, end of story.
>>5611679 But with that logic, can't the parents also get you fired if you're black? Or even a man? Or literally just because you're too tall or too short or too ugly? Like, do you believe there should be a line? And if so, where?
>>5612233 Yes, yes, and yes. If you as an employee belong to a group that drives away perspective clients (or in this case, students) then you absolutely should be fired from that job. Your employer should not be obligated to take the heat for you just so you can have your job.
I have known plenty of business owners that have had to fire black employees because clients were not comfortable with them, so it's not just gays or anything.
>>5612249 You don't know what you're legally talking about. >perspective clients You aren't hired by the students or parents. You're hired by the school district and only the school district. The parents are not in charge of that in any way. The parent's feelings about whatever a teacher does has absolutely no effect on that. It all comes down the the school board and that they can prove specific things. I mean we like to say that the government is "the people" but you can't get a mob of citizens to just start firing cops because they don't like his lifestyle.
>>5611226 This shit right here is why the fight for gay rights does not end with marriage equality. If anything, equal employment protections are far more important to LGBT livelihoods, and that fight is just warming up.
>>5612266 But should the school district force parents to accept a teacher they are not comfortable with just because it's politically correct?
If it's just one or two parents then of course they should be ignored, but if almost every parents is not ok with a gay teacher then the school district has an obligation to get rid of them, sad as it is.
>>5612374 >But should the school district force parents to accept a teacher they are not comfortable with just because it's politically correct? Yes they legally have to for almost everyone besides homosexuals.
>but if almost every parents is not ok with a gay teacher then the school district has an obligation to get rid of them That literally has absolutely nothing to do with the decision. The school district has 0 obligation to do anything for the parents. It just has nothing to do with it.
>>5611366 >All they have to do is prove that it in any way changes your relationship with the students and you can be booted. And it's pretty hard to prove that from someone simply being gay, furthermore one can sue them over discrimination.
For some reason, people think think that the government represents the popular opinion at all times. But really, one of the most important reasons why government exists is the ability to slam everyone's asses down and say, "No, you all are being overemotional idiots. We are doing it this way, because shit needs to get done. And in a decade or two, everyone will wonder what the fuck you were thinking."
>>5611226 eh, I live in the deep ultraconservative south and my old drama teacher was gay and didn't get fired until he caused a scandal by getting arrested for soliciting in a public bathroom. He got rehired a about a year later for a different school. >this was before grindr became a thing
He actually didn't get fired, come to think about it. He resigned. Was probably part of the deal he struck. If he didn't cause a stink, they would rehire him soon.
