A Deer Park Elementary School bus driver, hired as a man, was called out for crossdressing and requiring 9- and 10-year-old students to refer to him using feminine pronouns.

Upon learning that her child’s bus driver was a crossdressing man demanding the use of “she/her” pronouns, Deer Park Elementary School parent Heather Hitchcock immediately took to social media to inform other parents of the situation.

Following Hitchcock’s post, parents filed complaints with Stephen Harrell, the superintendent of Deer Park Independent School District. Shortly after, parents were informed the situation had been dealt with.

A parent responded to Hitchcock’s post: “I believe he/she drove my daughters 5th Grade class in a field trip today for SJE. She was telling me the bus driver was a man with a beard but wore makeup, nails, fake lashes and girl clothes. A student said sir and he said it’s ma’am.”

Other parents complained that the trivia and games the crossdressing man played with the children were “creepy.”

“If you think you are going to have FIFTH GRADERS address you with a full face of facial hair as SHE while wearing women’s clothing and engaging them with Disney trivia ON A SCHOOL FIELD TRIP you have majorly missed the mark,” wrote Hitchcock.

He “forc[ed] 9 and 10 year olds to engage in his sick fantasy by calling him ma’am,” Hitchcock continued.

Some referred to this as a “mental illness,” saying this “should disqualify you from driving kids around.”

“Parents, have you had enough yet? No, seriously, have you?” Texas Family Project CEO Chris Hopper asked.

“You do realize that ‘it doesn’t directly affect me, so I’m gonna keep my nose out of it’ only leads to you being on an island unto yourself with no one coming to rescue you, right? When will parents, pastors, community leaders, and concerned patriots say enough is enough?” said Hopper.

Hopper continued, “This type of behavior will continue as long as Texans look the other direction. Quite frankly, we are getting what we deserve. There are not enough protesters, not enough activists, and not enough testifying in Austin. If you know all the stats of your favorite sports team but you’ve never been to a school board or city council meeting, you might just be the problem. We need to awaken the snoring giant of passive parents across our state and stop the seeping filth invading every area of our society.”
