I strongly support guidance for students, administration & educators to support trans & nonbinary youth in our schools. This is extremely important as these are foundational years, and the students deserve to feel safe and acknowledged during this time. The school system should aim to set all students up for a confident and content adulthood.
I have seen other negative comments saying trans & nonbinary youth are just kids going through a phase, and that simply is not true. Kids just like adults are complex humanbeings, and not all fit the generic gender mold. Children and teens are in a time of growth, exploration and expanse and they should feel safe to express themselves as this majorly impacts their mental, and therefore physical, health as a youth and as an adult. Saftey & acceptance is extremely important and should be the golden standard, without question, in our school system.
