Tampa teacher disciplined over 'privilege' form

Parents are outraged after their children had to fill out a form -- titled "How much privilege do you have?" -- during a Spanish class at Monroe Middle School.

Race and sex are two common questions students fill out on forms every year. But what about gender, sexual orientation or religion? Students at Monroe Middle had to do just that.

The form was handed out in a Spanish class to seventh- and eighth-graders by teacher, Yoselis Ramos. At the top, the form asked, "How much privilege do you have?"

The different categories included, "Race", "Skin Color", "Religion", "Sex", "Gender", Sexual Orientation", and "Disability."

Regina Stiles' daughter is in the class. When her daughter came to the "Disability" column, she had to reveal that she had ADHD.

"She has ADHD and apparently the teacher said there are some kids in this class that have ADHD, and ADHD is a mental illness, and that's why she circled that. To me ADHD is not a mental disability. It's something she has," says Stiles.

Other sections included religion and gender where kids were asked to circle "Cisgender," "Transgender" or "GenderQueer."

"She's 12. Some of these things should be taught at home," says Stiles.

After Stiles along with several other angry parents questioned school principal, Peter Megara he launched an investigation.

This is not a district form, this is a teacher-generated form and it was without principal consent and at the district level we do not collect that information," says Hillsborough County School Spokesperson Tanya Arja.

The students weren't required to turn in the forms. According to Arja, Yoselis says the goal was to teach them about persity and inequality through literature the students had been reading.

Yoselis has since been pulled from the classroom while the district looks into the issue. This is her first year in the Hillsborough County School District.

According to her LinkdIn profile, she says, "Knowledge means power. As a teacher, my desire is to empower students with the skills they need to be able to thrive, not only function, in our society. Those skills? Critical thinking, communication, empathy and logic through the Spanish language."

it's really funny that this actually happened. why someone would think talking about pansexuals and demigirls in a middle school spanish class is mystifying , but it is very funny

here is the form in question, filled out:

and just for GBS, I made a clean version so all of us can fill out our privileges:

Hahaha, the sheer presumptuousness of assuming that kids would be cool about writing about their disabilities for irrelevant reasons.

Order the teacher to go through, say, the most cliched Southern debutante-style finishing school. When she complains, tell her that this is what it feels like to be force-fed what random busybodies think is right for other people.

First we got crippled. Then that's offensive. Then it's handicapped. Alright, limited ability, p accurate. Then it goes back to disabled. No ability, a sack of jello. Even shitter than crippled or limited ability, but that's PC now. Then it's colored. Alright colored skin. Then you gotta say black because colored is offensive, as was negro before that. Black isn't accurate, nobody is actually black aside from Wesley snipes in the moonlight. Then it's African American. Well then what the hell do you call a black immigrant from Germany shithead?

Slider implies all gender lies on the gender line when in reality there are infinitely more infinities of gender once you consider the imaginary aspect of gender and write all gender terms inclusive of their real and imaginary components.
