(THE COLLEGE FIX) – Peter Vlaming was willing to do anything to accommodate a female high school student who identified as male – except refer to her as "him."
For that he was fired by the West Point School Board in Williamsburg, Virginia, last December.
Now he's suing the board, superintendent, principal and assistant principal for breach of contract and violation of his rights to free speech, free exercise, due process and "be free from government discrimination" under Virginia's constitution and law.

The state lawsuit, filed in the Circuit Court for the County of King William, also seeks an injunction against school officials punishing teachers for referring to students "based on their biological sex." Vlaming demands reinstatement to his same position at the same or higher salary.
