Florida Judge John Van Laningham ruled that Miami-Dade County was wrong to fire a teacher who deliberately misgendered and deadnamed a transgender student. The teacher cited her religious beliefs in her defense. The judge wrote that the case was “not about proselytizing but about transgender ideology.” He also misgendered the student in his decision, and used the pseudonym “Pat,” where the student had been referred to as “S.S.” in other court documents. He also wrote, “Advocates of transgenderism can be as doctrinaire as religious zealots these days.” For using loaded language, and for siding with bigotry, Judge John Van Laningham gets a Twit Award.

The Advocate reports that an 11-year-old rapper and his father released a video in which the child, Toby James, performs a song with a slur against transgender people and some very anti-transgender lyrics. The song appeared on his father’s TikTok account, but when that platform removed it, it then appeared on X. For supporting and promoting anti-transgender bigotry, and for perverting the teachings of a religion that bases supporting the oppressed into support for oppressing others, Toby James and his father, Tyson James, get a Twit Award.
