We have a rule in our home. If you are paying you can choose where we eat. The principal is the same in regards to public and private local state and federal matters. If you do or don’t like something you can vote when your 18. If children can’t vote until they are 18, buy a lottery ticket, join the military, donate blood, and the list goes on… now why in the world does anyone think they are capable of making life altering decisions about their identity and bodies? If they think otherwise, they can be like every other citizen and when they turn 18 their life and vote is in their hands. Meanwhile, parents are responsible for their children and their welfare until then. If this wasn’t the case then why does social services even exist and intervene when parents aren’t doing their job? Clearly parents are responsible for their children legally. A child cannot even be treated at a hospital without parental consent. So not only do I support and agree with Gov Youngkin and this policy buts it’s a shame it’s even in question to begin with! Stop the lunacy and brainwashing. Stick to reading writing and math! Meet kids where they are who are struggling, connect them to resources, help them steward all the hormones and odd things we all faced. Investigate parents who are perverting and mutilating their children bc they don’t know how to parent or they have some sick perversion. Social services should be taking those kids and placing them in healthy homes! No one wants to talk about the suicide rates from this, the irreversible damage or the buffet being created for every predator and pedophile out there!
Do what’s right before God, after all we are one nation under God! Protect our kids, respect our parents, honor our beliefs and stand on our constitution.
