Strongly oppose several key provisions
As both a father of school aged children and a licensed clinical psychologist, I am horrified at the lack of privacy protections for cisgender individuals, as well as, the assertation that schools should be encouraged to actively intrude into family dynamics by affirming identities within children, which are opposed the guidance of parents. I agree with the need to continue to work to eliminate open hostility toward transgender individuals and affirm their ability to participant in all non-gender-specific activities (e.g. chorus). However, that a transgender individual with male anatomy would have the right, without being questioned/challenged to share the same undressing and showering space as my daughters some day seems like an outrageous intrusion on her privacy. This may be one of the more obvious difficulties with this guidance; however, there are several similar concerns. Additionally, the routine affirmation of the unsolidified identities can be very destructive to proper maturation and have extremely detrimental long-term impacts on youth. I think the very delicate/complicated work of identity exploration and solidification needs to be done in dialogue with the parents, with the assistance of experts as needed.
