A 17-year-old student at Mearns Academy in Aberdeenshire, Scotland was removed from class, suspended, and later expelled after telling his teacher: “Sir, there are only two genders.”
Human Events According to the 17-year-old student known only as Murray, the events unfolded after the teacher pulled up a website in front of the whole class that only gave two gender options. “[The teacher] basically started going off on a tangent about how bad that was, and how old fashioned it was.”
This is when the student stated the scientific fact there are only two genders. In turn, he was removed from class, later given the reason his ‘opinion’ was ‘not inclusive’. After forcing him to sit outside the classroom for thirty minutes, the teacher finally came out to speak with Murray, who recorded the entire encounter.
Within a day of the video being posted, it had gone viral. The school suspended Murray for one week and told him they would have to restrict his phone usage. However, the school also made clear in the meeting that Murray could not talk to the press. If he did, they threatened harsher punishment. Multiple news outlets did end up covering the story, but Murray did not speak with any of them.
Despite Murray’s compliance, the school did not let the incident die out. After the week-long suspension, school officials came to the conclusion that he could not continue his education at that school. He was expelled.
