Respect for all
It is important to have respect for all. The proposed Model Policies for the Treatment of Transgender Students elevates the needs of some above the needs of others. For instance, the identified need of a child to express his or herself in terms of adopting stereotypical feminine or masculine dress or expression is elevated above the parents' rights to guide and care for their child; the need of a child who does not conform to their biological sex is elevated above the rights of children who conform to their biological sex by preventing the latter from privacy in bathrooms and locker rooms.
Interestingly the policies are written claiming to remove barriers for one group, without recognizing they are creating barriers for others. For instance a biological boy who is allowed to compete against biological girls may eliminate the biological girl from advancing. Remember back in the 70's when women's sports was created to recognize that girls and women needed a separate space to fairly compete in athletics?
All children need love, respect and safety, but these policies are not considering "all" but are elevating one class above another.
Thus, I oppose these policies.
