Three Teachers Sue Over Florida Law That Bans Them From Using Their Preferred Pronouns

Three teachers in Florida on Wednesday sued the state over its law prohibiting transgender and nonbinary teachers from using their preferred pronouns in school, saying it violates their constitutional rights.

The lawsuit filed in federal court in Florida’s capital, Tallahassee, says the state law is designed “to stigmatize and demonize transgender and nonbinary people” and deprives them of the equal protection of the law guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

The state law, which took effect in July, says school employees cannot tell students to call the employees by their preferred titles or pronouns, if the preference does not correspond to the sex assigned at birth.
