LGBT activists have proven incapable of discouraging a Canadian high school student from affirming Christian teaching as it pertains to transgenderism and other issues of moral relevance, so it appears they're now going after his family.
In November, 17-year-old Josh Alexander was suspended from St. Joseph's High School in Renfrew, Ontario, after he stated openly in class that God created only two genders. He was subsequently banned from school property for the remainder of the year, then arrested in February when he attempted to return. Alexander has since been criticized in the press and hounded online.
Notwithstanding the temporal trouble his faith has gotten him into, the teen has remained resolute.
The punishment and criticism having been unable to crush Alexander, it appears as though his parents, both reportedly teachers who work for the Renfrew County District School Board, have been fitted up as targets.
The boy's father, Matt Alexander, is a grade 7/8 teacher. His mother, Nicole Alexander, teaches kindergarten.
Alexander tweeted on Sunday, "I have been informed that both my mother and father have been put on leave and removed from the classroom. My parents are under attack simply for having raised me."
"They couldn't get to me so they've attacked my family," he added.
"I found that my mom has been put under investigation and removed from the classroom indefinitely. My dad has already been kicked out two weeks ago. He's also under investigation," Alexander told independent Canadian reporter Abdusselmam Bezirgan.
The teen stressed that he is ready to face the consequences of his actions, but that he ought to be alone in paying the price.
According to the Epoch Times, Alexander's mother received notice Monday that she was under investigation and had been put on leave. The reason provided was that she had removed a pride flag affixed to the door of her kindergarten classroom.
Nicole Alexander said that she had taken down the flag to protect her students, reported the Post Millennial.
"Somebody reported her and went to the superintendent who told her that in order to protect the students, they’d have to put her on leave and place her under investigation," Alexander told the Epoch Times.
As for the boy's father, it remains unclear why he was suspended, although Alexander suspects his activism played a part.
"Renfrew County’s not a big area. Everybody knows everybody and there’s obviously a lot of talk about me," Alexander said. "It’s no secret that they’re my parents."
According to the board's website, individuals found to have contravened the board's speech codes and woke conventions, particularly concerning LGBT issues, "may be required to take part in additional anti-oppression training."
The board's "Gender Identity and Gender Expression Guideline" states that the "RCDSB is committed to fostering environments where all members of the organization feel safe and comfortable to explore and share their gender identity and gender expression. In addition, the District is committed to ensuring students, parents/guardians, and staff are safe from all forms of discrimination."
Students, parents, and staff are not permitted to take a passive role, but instead are warned they have "a responsibility to ensure that people of all genders and gender expressions have safe learning and working environments."
Teachers such as Alexander's parents are required to affirm LGBT lifestyles and buttress community members' social-constructivist claims.
The guide RCDSB teachers must adhered to prompts them to challenge normalcy and promote transgenderism.
To this end, students, staff, and parents are required to "respect" made-up pronouns and other "gender expressions."
Notwithstanding this latest pressure campaign, Alexander is not backing down. He is staging a walkout protest on May 17.
