First Amendment at Risk

As you know, the First Amendment enshrines freedom of religion and freedom of speech in the U. S. Constitution. The proposed regulation violates both. It allows only affirmation of a person's gender confusion, not correction.  Clearly this is a violation of freedom of religion as no Christian counselor could conform to this restriction. And it is a violation of freedom of speech since to state the obvious, that males are males and females are females, is not permitted. Please withdraw this extreme regulation. Thank you.
