A middle school student in Massachusetts called out his school board for allegedly sending him home after he wore a t-shirt stating, “There are only two genders.”
Liam Morrison, a 12-year-old boy attending John T. Nichols Jr. Middle School, brought his case before the board on April 13th.
Video obtained by the Twitter account @libsoftiktok shows Morrison conveying his version of events.
The young man claims his father had to come to the school to pick him up after the boy refused to change the shirt as requested by school officials.
Why did officials make the request according to Morrison? Because some students were complaining that it made them feel “unsafe” and the words in question were “disrupting education.”

Student Sent Home Over T-Shirt Saying ‘There Are Only Two Genders’
Morrison explained that he was called out of gym class over the offending ‘There are only two genders’ t-shirt and asked to remove it because other students were upset.
“Yes, words on a shirt made people feel unsafe. They told me that I wasn’t in trouble, but it sure felt like I was. I was told that I would need to remove my shirt before I could return to class,” he explained.
“When I nicely told them that I didn’t want to do that, they called my father.”
Fortunately for Liam, his father is sticking by his side.
It’s going to take the children to lead a lot of the adults.

“Thankfully, my dad, supportive of my decisions, came to pick me up,” Morrison explained. “What did my shirt say? Five simple words: There are only two genders. Nothing harmful. Nothing threatening. Just a statement I believe to be a fact.”
Unfortunately, Liam, you live in an era where you’re not allowed to debate facts. And that is especially so in the very institution that once encouraged debate and learning – school.
Would this school have dared ask a student to remove a shirt featuring an LGBT flag or a trans flag?
This kid is both brave and brilliant.

Why Do Your Feelings Trump My Rights?
Morrison wasn’t simply content to recall the events leading up to and resulting in his dismissal from the school that day. He cemented his status as a legend by calling out the school board to their faces.
Morrison explained that he was told his ‘there are only two genders’ t-shirt was “targeting a protected class” and was a “disruption to learning.”
“Who is this protected class? Are their feelings more important than my rights?” he wondered. “I don’t complain when I see Pride flags and diversity posters hung throughout the school. Do you know why? Because others have a right to their beliefs, just as I do.”
And just like that – A little child shall lead them.
Words on a shirt made people feel unsafe, what has this world come to?

Morrison seemed to suggest there were no real complaints about his t-shirt from students and that it was actually school officials who made it into an issue.
“I was told that the shirt was a disruption to learning. No one got up and stormed out of class. No one burst into tears. I’m sure I would have noticed if they had,” he said.
“I experience disruptions to my learning every day. Kids acting out in class are a disruption, yet nothing is done. Why do the rules apply to one yet not another?” Morrison asked.
What an outstanding young man. School should be ashamed that 12 year makes more sense than adults

Morrison told the board that he has rights, perhaps something he learned at his school but more likely came from teachings at home.
“I have my own political opinions and I have a right to express those opinions,” he said. “Even at school. This right is called the First Amendment to the Constitution.”
Those rights should be recognized ‘especially at school.’
Unfortunately, it takes a 12-year-old like Liam to remind adults about rights to free speech and the science behind what is a man or a woman.

thus the opposition to school choice/homeschool
a very good demonstration of the ‘problems’ of civic education
SMART BOY! so now the people who believe there are 52 genders are a protected class? Thoughy they just wanted to be like everyone else, equal rights, remember? This entire movement is BULL. Glad he stuck up.for his rights
THE PROBLEM YOU DUMB ASF RIGHT WINGERS MAKE is thinking that ANYONE on that SATANIC STRAIGHT FROM THE PIT OF HELL school board, gives a rip about this kids rights or yours for that matter. It really shows how UNPREPARED you are to fight against Satan’s children EVEN THOUGH THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT JESUS CHRIST (my Lord and Savior, yours “allegedly”) specifically told you in John 8:44 and in Matt 13:36-39. SATAN has children to and they do HIS works not God’s. Read a bible and get a frigging clue.
Your a stupid jerk!! You are also a satanist. What the hell was wrong about what thise kid said? C’mon, tell us! Or are you too afraid to engage in a conversation? This is a typical leftist fools that makes ignorant comments but refuses to explain or provide facts to back up what he is saying. LOL!!
Liam Morrison you are a very bright very intelligent young man. Don’t let these people who think you did wrong by believing what you believe. Yes there are only two genders and you are correct. I’m glad to see Liam’s dad stood by him and gave him the support he needed. GREAT JOB to you both! These school boards are trying to shut down the children because they want to intimidate them but if parents educate these children about what is right these schools can’t get away with it.
This boy is totally unAmerican!
Going back and speaking nicely and logically to a school board that are deaf, dumb and stupid.
A true American would have straight away called a lawyer and sued for the unimaginable trauma that he experienced.
The kid stays in the picture.
Hell is going to be full of these hippocrites !
I wonder why every comment I make needs to be approved? Whatever happened to free speech? Guess I might hurt someone’s feelings.
I wonder what the repercussions were (other than his father having to come get him). Did he get suspended for telling the truth? How many children who wore rainbow flag t-shirts were told to remove them because they made people feel uncomfortable? How many people who wore transgender (no such thing) flags on their shirts told to remove them? How about a shirt with BLM and a raised fist, were they told to remove the shirts? I seriously doubt it.
THEY WONT TELL KIDS THAT WEAR RAINBOW SHIRTS TO REMOVE THEM BECAUSE THE SCHOOL BOARDS ARE A BUNCH OF WOKEASS PERVERTS. FJB
Dems claim to have traded places with the GOP on race over the years. Not so, they have simply added reverse racism as cover.
Their hypocrisy extends to tolerance for all but diversity of opinion.
Nicely stated, young man!!! Bravo!!!
Looks like the school board should be run by this 12 year old boy. Makes so much more sense than so many adults. He is right. How does a t shirt make people feel unsafe?
It’s the person wearing the shirt making people (teachers) feel unsafe because he seems to have his own ideas and that goes against their agenda.
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
In America today, the “more equal animals” are sexual deviants, black, brown, female, atheist, foreign, and Marxist.
Of course some may disagree with that — if they are liars.
Kid’s got more stones than the flakes he’s addressing.
Unfortunately, he’s going to learn first hand about what a kangaroo court is, or, in this instance: a kangaroo school board.
Simple solution — no T-shirts period. They ought to be wearing a shirt with a collar and a tie and add no jeans or sneakers. Kids go to school looking like bums & so do the teachers who have forgotten to grow up.
May the GOOD LORD shine his face upon him and give him his PEACE> AMEN
very well done
The saying on the t-shirt is 100 % correct as there are only two genders . Male and Female . Everything else is nonsense .
