A biologically male teacher impersonating a woman is demanding that he be allowed to use the girls’ bathroom with young students at a Madison, Wisconsin, elementary school. Naturally, parents freaked out. But the “transgender” activist is not giving up, accusing everyone of “transphobia” while threatening a “revolution” if he is refused permission to use the bathroom with girls 10 and under.
When outraged parents demanded that education officials do something about a grown man dressed as a woman using the bathroom with their little daughters, the administration apparently pointed to “best practices” suggesting that adults and children use different bathrooms. In response, the “transgender” teacher flipped out and posted a furious diatribe online accusing parents and officials of “hate.”
“I know, that doesn’t seem transphobic on the face of it,” wrote the Allis Elementary School teacher, a man named Mark “Vince” Busenback who now calls himself “Vica Steel,” about the policy on adults and children using separate restrooms. “They want us to believe that it’s not transphobic, it’s just about safety and about ‘listening to all stakeholders’.”
But don’t mistake that tepid response from school officials as evidence of sanity. The principal of the school, Sara Cutler, issued a statement promising to continue peddling transgenderism to children. “We believe that teaching about gender diversity is essential to creating gender-inclusive schools free of bias and bullying,” Cutler was quoted as saying by the self-styled radical feminist publication 4W.
Citing the Madison school district’s policy of allowing anyone to use the bathroom “most appropriate to their gender identity,” the teacher said “transphobic individuals” are allowed to use a separate facility. “Transgender woman. Bathrooms. Safety. This is code,” the transgender teacher said. “This is the same code word used by every hate group everywhere when they are talking about women like me who need to pee.”
According to the teacher, there “has never been a case of a transgender woman endangering or attacking or doing anything in her time in the bathroom.” But as the feminist publication pointed out, there have actually been numerous widely reported cases of men impersonating women and sexually preying on girls in female restrooms and changing rooms.
Until recently, the teacher actually identified as “non-binary,” which is neither male nor female.
The teacher, who demands that students refer to him as “Mix” instead of Mr., went on to claim men pretending to be women were “welcomed in most cultures until hatred became enshrined in Europe about 1,000 years ago. Or maybe earlier, I’m not fully up on that part of my history.” No examples were given of societies welcoming transgenderism until allegedly evil Europeans decided to reject it a thousand years ago.
Making matters even more serious, the teacher threatened that not allowing him to use the restroom with little girls might spark a revolution. “This is where we need to stand up. This is where we need to resist the writing of transphobia into our school district heart,” he said. “I need allies. I need other voices. I cannot do this alone. And if our district is going to require that my need to pee be a revolutionary act, then let’s lead that revolution together.”
The same teacher recently attracted national controversy for indoctrinating the captive children with transgender propaganda. Among other scandals, the apparently confused teacher forced children to watch a “transgender coming out” video and listen to the transgender book “Call Me Mix.” School district officials brushed off parental outcry. But critics expressed shock.
“It is outrageous that school administrators would allow a male science teacher to expose children to propaganda that promotes confusion about basic biology, and to instruct students to address him by a false name, title and pronouns,” said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. “These impressionable students do not exist to validate Busenbark’s sexual identity. Parents send their children to school trusting that they will be taught academic curriculum, not become participants in a teacher’s play acting.”
The school district is already being sued by parents over the transgender indoctrination. In the complaint, filed on behalf of families by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL), attorneys noted that almost all children claiming to be transgender will grow out of it if they are not duped into taking hormone injections and surgically mutilating their genitals.
The fact that a school would employ a confused activist like this to “educate” young children should tell parents everything they need to know about the government-education system. The damage this sort of indoctrination is doing to children is incalculable and almost certainly irreversible. Parents can no longer hide from the truth.
