U.S: Lesbian teacher says cyberbullying drove her from the classroom

Amy Estes, a middle school teacher in Rocklin, says she was cyberbullied by her students after they learned she was gay. She is currently on leave from the school district.
A Rocklin teacher said a picture on Instagram of her and her partner, discovered by one of her students, began a series of incidents that drove her from her classroom and could trigger a lawsuit against the Rocklin Unified School District.
This week Amy Estes filed a discrimination complaint against the district with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.
“I was outed,” said Estes, who is gay, but has never discussed that with students.
Estes, who has taught English at Spring View Middle School in Rocklin for five years, considered herself well-liked before the barrage of online taunts, nasty statements and memes began at the beginning of the school year.

Andrea Constand

This April, a jury found Bill Cosby guilty of drugging and raping Andrea Constand in 2004.

This Friday, she spoke publicly for the first time in 13 years about the assault in a Dateline special entitled “Bringing Down Bill Cosby: Andrea Constand Speaks.”

At a time when women around the world are speaking up against abuse and demanding greater gender equality, the Vatican’s actions to silence these women speakers have prompted some Catholics to reflect on whether the church really values women’s voices.

During the conference, Warry spoke about what life was like for her as a lesbian activist in a country where homosexuality is illegal. She condemned the silence of religious leaders in the face of this discrimination against queer Ugandans.
