Guidance Document Change: The Model Policies for the Treatment of Transgender Students in Virginia’s Public Schools guidance document was developed in response to House Bill 145 and Senate Bill 161, enacted by the 2020 Virginia General Assembly, which directed the Virginia Department of Education to develop and make available to each school board model policies concerning the treatment of transgender students in public elementary and secondary schools. These guidelines address common issues regarding transgender students in accordance with evidence-based best practices and include information, guidance, procedures, and standards relating to: compliance with applicable nondiscrimination laws; maintenance of a safe and supportive learning environment free from discrimination and harassment for all students; prevention of and response to bullying and harassment; maintenance of student records; identification of students; protection of student privacy and the confidentiality of sensitive information; enforcement of sex-based dress codes; and student participation in sex-specific school activities, events, and use of school facilities.

Pimozide: Dopamine Antagonist Reverses Feelings/Thoughts of Gender Confusion As First-line Treatment

Best Practices School Gender Confusion/Transgender Student Issues

There is a known antidote to Gender Confusion. It is a medication known as Pimozide and has been used for several decades. This dopamine antagonist should be discussed and offered as a first-line treatment for Gender Confusion as a comprehensive part of Best Practices for Public School Education. The medication's NIH Links is:

Having children begin Hormone Replacement/Blockers then battle the traumatic threshold of changing bathrooms/sport teams, etc, has been proven unnecessary, when offered Pimozide first.

Further, taking opposite sex Hormones has been linked to serious health and psychological and educational dysfunction including:

  1. Loss of bone mass/Shorten Stature
  2. Liver damage/Risk of Liver Failure
  3. Reduced Brain Growth/Learning Disabilities/Lowered IQ

If schools are going to receive acknowledgement to allow Best-practices, Gender Transgender Policies, disseminating and educating people about Pimozide, as the first-line treatment for children is the most reasonable approach. Children should not move directly into medications which will halt normal physiological and psychological function. Children should never move to Hormone replacements until they are over the age of Eighteen years old and make their own decisions due to the life-long negative impact on brain growth, and other physiological issues, leading to reduced long-term scholastic, educational and career goals.

More than 50% of people who are Transgender, who commit suicide, do so after they complete gender reassignment. Obviously, there is remorse to their decision that everyone always agrees they tried to help manage prior to the suicide. Surviving Transgenders often state that they felt they were too far gone or, they believed they had passed the point of no-return because the Hormones drastically and typically permanently altered their bodies.

Further, schools should never encourage the use of getting quick access to Hormones from Abortion Clinics, which are nearing street level assess of these hormones with little or no medical over-sight and medical management. Taking hormones require long-term observation and frequent lab testing, diagnostic testing and clinical evaluations to prevent injury or death.

Moreover, it can be said that most people are unaware of Pimozide, despite being used to treat feelings of Gender Confusion for multiple decades.  

Therefore, schools must discuss the medication Pimozide first, as Best Practices, to any, and all students who have any belief that they have Gender Confusion before they are confronting the changing gender bathroom issues and sports teams, friend groups, clothes, hair cut, etc., and all of the increasing the disruptiveness students will experience which increase their overall stress at school and at home.

Please review the link with the medication at the top of this comment.


Thank you for your time.
