I called a trans boy a girl by mistake... and it may cost me my job as a teacher: Maths tutor suspended after praising pupil using the wrong gender

First topic message reminder :

A teacher has been suspended and could face the sack after he ‘accidentally’ called a transgender pupil a ‘girl’ in class when the student identifies as a boy.
Joshua Sutcliffe, 27, who teaches maths at a state secondary school in Oxfordshire, said ‘Well done girls’ to the teenager and a friend when he spotted them working hard. 
He apologised when corrected by the pupil, but six weeks later he was suspended from teaching after the pupil’s mother lodged a complaint.
Following an investigation, he has been summoned to a formal disciplinary hearing this week to face misconduct charges for ‘misgendering’.


According to documents seen by The Mail on Sunday, he also faces claims that he is breaching equality policies by referring to the pupil by name rather than as ‘he’ or ‘him’.
The £30,000-a-year teacher said he was ‘distraught’ and had been reduced to tears as teaching was his life, and he branded the actions of the school as ‘political correctness gone mad’.
Mr Sutcliffe, a maths graduate who gained his teaching qualifications at Exeter University, said he had no official instructions about how to address the student, but along with other staff decided to use the pupil’s chosen first name. 
However, he has admitted that, as a Christian, he avoided using male pronouns such as ‘he’ and ‘him’.
He believed this was consistent with the school’s code of conduct and equality policies to show respect and tolerance, and he said he had encountered no problems with this.

He was told to come to the school and sit in the staff room preparing work, but he was not allowed to discuss the situation with colleagues. He said he thought no more about the incident until the week before last when, after a parents’ evening, he was unexpectedly called to the head’s office to be told there had been a ‘transgender complaint’ against him and that he was suspended from teaching while it was investigated.

He later discovered that the pupil’s family had claimed he had not only ‘misgendered’ the pupil but had unfairly given the pupil a disproportionate number of detentions for poor behaviour, though this later claim was not upheld during the investigation.
It is understood that the family’s main concern was that Mr Sutcliffe was picking on their child and they would not have complained about misgendering on its own as they are supporters of free speech.


Mr Sutcliffe said: ‘I was absolutely shocked to be told by the head that I was under investigation. I didn’t know what was happening. It was surreal, Kafkaesque. 


'I said it was only one incident for which I had apologised, but he insisted the investigation would go ahead.
‘I had always tried to respect the pupil and keep a professional attitude as well as my integrity, but it seemed to me that the school was trying to force me to adhere to its liberal, Leftish agenda.’


Mr Sutcliffe assumed the investigation would be brief and he would soon be back in the classroom, but he was questioned for an hour on the day after the meeting with the head and again last Monday, and was then sent a letter telling him to attend a formal disciplinary hearing this Wednesday, attended by the head and three governors.


He said: ‘I have never been trained to deal with this sort of thing. I felt completely out of my depth and intimidated.’

So if you were looking for Hitler which actually happened by the way

Did skin colour factor in this?

You have not got a clue and even worse you try to defend calling a criminal because he is labelled black okay to cast his criminality off this by defining him this way

Are you claiming his skin colour made him evil?

no AND I never even implied that

see didge I merely took the ststement at its face value...
See if smelly HAD said something overtly racist like for example "blacks are dogs" I'd have been down his throat like a ferret down a rabbit hole.
see unlike you and so many others I dont go around looking for racism under every stone, behind every tree or inside of every idea, I dont operate like some sort of modern day inquisition ferreting out heresy behind every questioning look and crowing like a demented cock when I immagine I have found it.
I work on the principle that opinion for one is permitted...however horrible (actually its a human right BTW...even when its "not popular" and so is the right to communicate it) what is racism and what is opinion is a matter of opinion in itself.....and one I'm expected to decide on...you may not like my decisions but hey ho.... I can only try to interpret the law as best i can...and to call racist on calling mugabe a black dog I would have to PROVE...beyond doubt and all that........ that Smelly was saying his skin colour caused his evil acts.....which he aint about to do...is he

and that brings us back to the question of why are only certain labels unacceptable?

Here we go

"If smelly had of said"

Its not what he said but you said

You normalized that hate and even made excuses

I do not look around for racism either. in fact this is the first time in ages I have shown a beacon on this because you have emnpahtically brushed it aside.

Its not an inquisition either.

Its simple a factor you keep giving me the biggest load of claptrap going

Now i wil ask one last time

When we refer to history

Do we refer to Hitler as a "white" dog?

Or Stalin as a "white" dog?

Seriously crawl back under that forest you came from, because you lost all respect the minute you posted up this complete load of bullshit

All you had you had to say is that it was wrong to cast Mugabe "black" based on his crimes and yet you tried to defend it inadvertantly

As to labels?
They are major cause of discrimination
