Despite the successes we’ve seen on the education front thanks to parents from all walks of life who have united in opposition to the implementation of CRT, there is still a lot of despair out there from sane-minded folks on the “progressive” push for gender identity politics discussions to be the rule rather than the exception in public school classrooms.
When you see the sheer number of videos out there posted on TikTok alone of woke so-called “educators” openly bragging about indoctrinating their young, impressionable students on the supposed benefits of getting to know their “true” selves or whatever, it’s frightening to think about – especially considering how often this likely happens without the knowledge of the students’ parents.
But every once in a while, the students strike back in a perfect way, giving us hope for the future.
Such was the case for one elementary school teacher on TikTok who sought out advice from her fellow TikTokers recently after the subject of pronouns somehow just happened to mysteriously crop up in her 5th- and 6th-grade combo classroom.
According to the teacher, one of the students chided her for not referring to him by his preferred pronouns. When she acknowledged he was correct, apologized, and proceeded to ask what his pronouns were, he told her he was a banana and a rock. Though she scolded him for in her view making light of the concept of preferred pronouns, she indicated that the other students disagreed with her and agreed with him that he could identify however he wanted to.
This highly confused the woke teacher, who then pleaded for her followers on TikTok to let her know “is it” true that a banana and rock really could be someone’s pronouns?

The Libs of TikTok account posting the clip to Twitter had parents in the comments section talking about their own experiences with their children giving their teachers similar answers:
My 8th grader told the teacher his pronouns are apache helicopter. While she didn't appreciate his answer, I was so proud of him 😂

Inez Stepman predicted the male student who identified as a banana and rock would grow up to one day be a king “who uses his college pronoun list to write ‘his majesty’ and forces all his professors to address him as such.”
While I’m sure many of us are laughing over that thought, don’t be surprised at all if it happens! Between their parents making humorous suggestions to them for what to say when and if the subject comes up in the classroom and the natural cleverness of kids, I foresee a scenario where a whole lot of bananas and rocks make it to the top of their class one day, complete with royal king or queen crowns in tow. 😉
