image for Education Blogger Fired for Writing About Homophones and Confusing Homophobes

Self-described "social media specialist and content provider" Tim Torkildson recounted the firing in a personal blog post, which was subsequently picked up by The Salt Lake Tribune and other outlets.

"He called me into the conference room, and he said, 'We're going to let you go,'" Torkildson told Newsweek.

"[He said] this blog on homophones is the last straw.

Torkildson denied that he was accused outright of promoting a "gay agenda.".

"His [Woodger's] words to me were, 'Some people might think that a blog on homophones has something to do with homosexuality.'

And they would become offended or think the school would have some kind of gay agenda.".

Still, he shrugged off the dismissal and said it wasn't the strangest thing he's been fired for. »
