This is a question School Assemblies

Our school assemblies were often presided over by the local vicar, who once warned us of the dreadful dangers of mixing with "Rods and Mockers". One of the cool teachers laughed. Tell us about mad headteachers and assemblies gone wrong.

Inspired by the mighty @Rhodri on Twitter

Respect
When in the 4th year of secondary school, my headmaster was outed as a cross dresser by one of the national newspapers. After the scandal, he went away for a few months only to return after Easter. By then everyone had more or less forgotten about it and there was no prior notice that he was coming back (he was still a he at this point). On the day of his return we walked down to the assembly hall as usual and as we got closer we could hear Aretha Franklin's song Respect blasting out at full volume over the top of the sound of 500 teenagers sniggering. We took our places, I sat next to Daz who was one of the quietest people in the school. After a few minutes the headmaster managed to get everyone to settle down and stop giggling. He switched off the music (which had been the same song playing on a loop) and turned on the overhead projector. He said "The Rs" and wrote down 1.Reading, 2.Writing and 3.Arithmetic. "Today we are going to add a fourth R" as the music quietly started again, "Can anybody tell me what it is?" There were a few moments of almost silence when quiet Daz shouted "RANSVESTITE!". The entire room burst into laughter - including the teachers, most of whom had to cover their faces and leave so that they weren't seen to be laughing. The headmaster was unable to stop everyone laughing and had no backup as there were only a couple of teachers left in the room, so we all get sent back to our form rooms. For anyone interested, the headmaster did become a headmistress.

I wonder whether The Mail used something similar?
I don't read the filthy rag but didn't they hound a teacher to death for being tRanssexual?
Not that I'm comparing -- I would certainly have laughed at that assembly.

Did the person who wrote the offending articles claim to be an offended feminist?

Not sure but I think it was Richard Littlejohn, so probably.
I read about it from another news source.

Ah, Littlejohn.
One of the nation's greatest activists for democracy, human rights and morality.

In case you're interested this is what I was referring to.
