Art Teacher Fired for Being Gay

It’s a shame that one ignorant parent can destroy someone’s career. I’m glad that there are others standing up for her; others that see this woman’s true value. With so many art/music/writing programs being stripped by the government, teachers like Mrs Bailey are vital to the development of children. LGBT teachers are not interested in indoctrinating children in their lifestyle as we all understand we’re born as we are. Except transgender people. They were born in the wrong body.

Former students and parents from an elementary school in Arlington, Texas, say they are devastated a beloved art teacher was suspended after she told students she was married to a woman.

Stacy Bailey, who twice won teacher of the year at Charlotte Anderson Elementary, was suspended last September after the district “received complaints from parents about Ms. Bailey discussing her sexual orientation with elementary-aged students,” according to a press release from Mansfield Independent School District. The suspension was first reported by the Dallas Morning News.

“Parents have the right to control the conversation with their children, especially as it relates to religion, politics, sex/sexual orientation, etc,” the press release read.

Texas Man Gets 10 Years Probation For Death Of Transgender Woman

Seriously? A woman dies and the best we can do is probation????? Oh, but she’s a transgender. And it’s Texas. So a slap on the wrist should do. Sorry, my bad.

A Dallas man was sentenced to 10 years probation Tuesday after pleading guilty to aggravated assault in the death of a transgender woman who he called his life partner — causing outrage among family members.

Jonathan Stuart Kenney, 29, assaulted Janette Tovar, 43, in October 2012 after an argument between the two escalated, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Dallas Morning News.

Authorities say Kenney slammed Tovar’s head into the concrete about a block away from their apartment, and continued the assault after getting home, according to the affidavit. He then called police that afternoon to report that Tovar was not breathing or responsive, according to a police report. A medical examiner ruled Tovar died of blunt force trauma to the head.
