I fully support this policy. It's ridiculous to see activities shouting this is discrimination against LGBTQ community, when no where in the policy is anything about gay or transgendered people mentioned. In fact, this is how sexually explicit content is defined in the text:

Section 2.2-2827 of the Virginia Code states that “Sexually explicit content” “means (i) any description of or (ii) any picture, photograph, drawing, motion picture film, digital image or similar visual representation depicting sexual bestiality, a lewd exhibition of nudity, as nudity is defined in Section 18.2-390, sexual excitement, sexual conduct or sadomasochistic abuse, as also defined in Section 18.2-390, coprophilia, urophilia, or fetishism.”

To those who oppose: If you want your children (suppose you have one or two in stead of pretending to be a parent on this board) to be exposed to such materials, nobody prevents you from doing so. But don't let others children be harmed by your view of how children should be educated. You don't lose anything if this bill is passed, but a lot of people will be harmed it is not.
