Is a pansexual teacher in Lee County, Florida, the first victim of Governor Ron DeSantis’ “Don’t Say Gay” bill?”

The teacher claims that she was fired for discussing her pansexual status with middle school students whom she then asked to draw pictures representing their own sexual orientations. However, her firing occurred days before DeSantis signed the “Parent’s Rights Bill” into law, which critics have erroneously dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Cape Coral art instructor Casey Scott said her students were curious about her sexual orientation, and she explained to them that she was “pansexual” during a lesson in back March, local station NBC2 learned.

“A discussion happened in class, and because of that, now I’m fired,” Scott told the outlet.

Pansexual refers to someone who is attracted to all categories of people regardless of their sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Scott, who is married to a man, said the kids at Trafalgar Middle School then created flags representing their own sexuality and gender identities ranging from transgender and non-binary to gay.

The first-year teacher posted their creations to her classroom door before administrators told her to take them down.

“They said it would be in the best interest if I got rid of them now,” she told NBC.

Scott said she crumpled up the pictures and put them in the trash.

Lee School District officials said some students understood her explanation of her sexuality while others were left confused, the local NBC affiliate reported.

The subject matter angered some parents and students who wrote to administrators to voice their displeasure, officials said.

Scott, who was working on a probationary basis and not part of the teachers union, was eventually told not to return to campus and that her contract was being terminated.

District officials attributed her dismissal to her not following the curriculum, the NBC affiliate reported.

The firing came just days before Gov. Ron DeSantis banned instruction related to gender identity or sexual orientation for kids in kindergarten through the fourth grade.

Backers of the “Parent’s Rights Bill” argue that sexual subject matter is inappropriate for young children and that the law shields them and their parents. Critics dubbed the legislation the “Don’t Say Gay” bill and assert that it fosters hostility to the LGBTQ community.

Lee School District officials have made no further comments on the incident.

  1. Parents not Teachers should be telling the children about Sex. This holds true of many other things like Morals, manners and many other things. Sadly Parents have gotten LAZY and IGNORANT. Some will say I am wrong but It is FACT. Parents should teach children about right and wrong long before they get to school. As one who grew up in the Country I knew more about SEX and Reproduction than many three times my age.I was 6 at the time. I also knew what was right what was wrong and what was polite to ask. When parents started to let teachers do their job is when this Nation started down the Crapper. Not only did Morals stop being taught or mattering but Education went down as well. Back when I went to school teachers taught TRUTH about America. That meant the taught all History and that also meant teaching where America was WRONG and what they did to fix those wrongs. America was taught not a a perfect Nation but one that is growing and learns as it grows. Yes America had some very bad spots in it’s past but we are constantly trying to do better. Well some parts are but as the last couple of years prove some are not trying to be better. Liberals are just proving why they should NEVER be in power. First they CHEAT a PROVEN PEDOPHILE into America’s highest office with a PROSTITUTE as his VP but allowed TERRORISTS to destroy much in many US cities without even once trying to put a stop to it with any actual method that would work. Democraps constantly strip laws of their ability to punish which allows crime rates to skyrocket. So what DeSantis did was put Parents back in control of Educating their Children in the ways that only parents should be educating their Children. This person needs a good Mental health professional not to be subjecting children to her illness. Firing her was the right thing to do.

  2. No child should know about their teacher’s sexual orientation or political affiliation. This not necessary to a child’s education and literally has no place in the classroom. The fact that educators believe otherwise indicates a serious problem with our educational system. Teaching tolerance does not require the so called educator to reveal their personal predictions about anything. It’s arrogant at the least and indoctrination at the worst. I seriously can’t believe we’re even having this discussion. Stay in your lane comes to mind. Who gave teachers the authority to undermine parental authority? These woke idiots fail to recognize we the parents pay their salaries and of they cannot control their personal issues they simply do not belong in the classroom. While it’s known that there are parents whom do not parent and teach their children about sexuality and morality this is not the majority of parents in our nation. When high school graduates cannot read beyond a third grade level the problem is not sexual identity it’s the lack of proper teaching methods. We’ve grown so weak and ineffectual in our schooling in both education and discipline many of the good teachers simply have little to no authority and these kids know it. This is where parents and teachers can find common ground but that can never happen when parents are left out of the conversation. The politicization of our schools have compromised our children’s ability to learn and grow. Take the masks off stop injecting your own beliefs and get on with actually educating our children. That’s what we are paying you for. The worm has turned. You’ve had your chance and you have failed miserably. Now it’s time to return to common sense and logic.
    God Bless America
