[Video] 7th Grader Punished For Shirt Saying ‘Only Two Genders,’ Takes Down School Board With Epic Speech

A 12-year-old boy in Massachusetts claims he was kicked out of school for wearing a shirt stating there are “only two genders,” which he was told made students feel “unsafe.” The seventh grader, Liam Morrison, addressed the incident during a Middleborough School Committee meeting, presenting a speech that has now gone viral on social media.

Morrison says he was pulled out of his gym class in March for wearing the shirt and forced to have what he described as an “uncomfortable talk” with the school’s administrators.

“They told me that I wasn’t in trouble, but it sure felt like I was. I was told that I would need to remove my shirt before I could return to class. When I nicely told them that I didn’t want to do that, they called my father… Thankfully, my dad, supportive of my decisions, came to pick me up. What did my shirt say? Five simple words: There are only two genders. Nothing harmful. Nothing threatening. Just a statement I believe to be a fact.”

According to Morrison, school staff accused him of “targeting a protected class” by wearing the shirt and creating a “disruption to learning.” Speaking to the committee, the seventh grader took a bold stance,

“Who is this protected class?” Are their feelings more important than my rights? I don’t complain when I see Pride flags and diversity posters hung throughout the school. Do you know why? Because others have a right to their beliefs, just as I do.”

He then cast doubt on the school’s claims that he had somehow disrupted classroom learning by wearing the shirt.

“No one got up and stormed out of class. No one burst into tears. I’m sure I would have noticed if they had. I experience disruptions to my learning every day. Kids acting out in class are a disruption, yet nothing is done. Why do the rules apply to one yet not another?”

Then, Morrison told the school committee that he had “learned a lot” from his experience, including that “adults don’t always do the right thing.”

“I know that I have a right to wear a shirt with those five words. Even at 12 years old, I have my own political opinions and I have a right to express those opinions. Even at school. This right is called the First Amendment to the Constitution…

My hope in being here tonight is to bring the School Committee’s attention to this issue. I hope that you will speak up for the rest of us, so we can express ourselves without being pulled out of class. Next time, it may not only be me. There might be more soon that decide to speak out.”

On Sunday, a video of Morrison’s April 13 speech to the Middleborough School Committee was posted to Twitter by the account LibsOfTikTok. It has since received more than 8 million views.
