Video: You Won’t Believe What This Transgender Teacher Told 1st Graders

Ray Skyer

( – At times in this business, we come across videos that we find hard to believe are true.

The video below is one of those times. You may find it hard to believe it’s true.

But, we assure you the video is not a fake. It is an actual schoolteacher participating in a Zoom meeting with young schoolchildren.

The Daily Wire provides the context as follows:

“A Boston-area charter school assistant principal told a first-grade teacher who is a biological woman and identifies as a man to tell kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade students on an “Identity Share” Zoom call, ‘I’m going to start by turning it over to you and having you share with us your ‘I am’ statements and what you like most about who you are.'”

That’s the context. In detail, the teacher, Ray Skyer, told the children the following:

“So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them, and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or girl based on what they look like. Most of the time, that guess is 100% correct; there are no issues whatsoever, but sometimes the doctor is wrong; the doctor makes an incorrect guess. When a doctor makes a correct guess, that’s when a person is called cisgender. When a doctor’s guess is wrong, that’s when they are transgender.

“So I’m a man, but when I was a baby, the doctors told my parents I was a girl. And so my parents gave me a name that girls typically have; they bought me clothes that girls typically wear, and until I was eighteen years old, everyone thought I was a girl. And this was super, super uncomfortable for me because I knew that wasn’t right. The way I like to describe it is like wearing a super-itchy sweater. The longer you wear it, the itchier it gets, and the only way to make the itching stop is to have everyone see and know the person that you really are. So when I was eighteen, I told my family and my friends that I’m really a boy, and it was like this huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders, and I had the freedom to be who I truly am. And even though this experience is super-challenging sometimes, it made me the person I am, and I’m super-proud to be transgender.”

Remember, the teacher was speaking with kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade students.
