What do you guys think about this situation with this gym teacher?

Per a rule that would require teachers and other school staff to address "gender-expansive or transgender students" with their preferred name, pronouns and gender? Is doing so lying to the student in question, or just being civil and accomodating the kid's personal self-identification?

Jordan Peterson has been fighting against this same kind of issue in Canada. There was a bill proposed in Canada, if passed, would force people to use pronouns of the person’s choice. Forcing speech is unconstitutional.

I recently filled out a census questionnaire in which I was asked my gender. There were 3 choices:

Female
Male
Other

...so the rot of common sense has started.
