I am in full support of these model policies. Every student absolutely deserves a safe, supportive learning environment, and to be treated with respect and dignity; accommodations for transgender and gender-expansive students are long overdue. I know of a number of people who would have benefited from such policies existing when I was growing up in Fairfax Co public schools.
I’m saddened, though not very surprised, to see abounding ignorance and intolerance in the dissenting comments.
People need to stop trying to use “science” (or rather, their gross misunderstanding of what it actually tells us) to justify their transphobia.
