I completely agree with the proposed document. It is a parents job to fight for their kid’s safety, wellbeing, and beliefs. Whether or not the child agrees with them, the PARENTS HAVE THE RIGHT to teach and educate their children with beliefs and teachings that they, the parents, have accepted as true, right, and just. I strongly believe that taking away the parents right to access their child’s accurate information is severely misguided and foolish. It is WRONG to stop a parent from protecting their child as best as they believe that they can. The school system, and ineligible students (not yet 18), should NOT have authority to override a parents decision for their child. I proudly stand by The Code of Virginia, § 1-240.1 I am a 19 year old young man who just graduated from Loudoun Valley High School in Loudoun County. I have seen what school is like. From a Christian perspective it is a very dark place. I have seen that High school can far too easily become an echo chamber for any belief, but none of which more negatively impactful as PRISM/LGBTQIA+ clubs and friend groups. While In a male dressing room for a theatrical production at Loudoun Valley, I had a run in where a female woman who called herself a transgender man walked in while I was in the process of changing. I did not know what to do or say, yet I felt deeply that this situation was fundamentally wrong. I politely asked her to please knock before coming in next time as I was extremely uncomfortable, and thankfully, despite being offended, she agreed to. I must admit, I was very anxious when I asked, as theatre as a whole has many pro LGBTQIA+ members, and I was unsure how they would react to me speaking my mind and personal beliefs. This experience has stuck with me for a long while as it was an eye opener. At that time, I, a STUDENT should not have to worry about being watched by girls in a male dressing room. It should not be on a child’s shoulder to fight for what is right. It is the responsibility of the adults and parents of children to go before them on every issue. Glory to God, amen.
