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.

Follow the science.

Follow the science.  There are two sexes, male and female, as identified by XY and XX chromosomes.

Don't confuse helpless children by wielding your power to promote gender dysphoria.  That is child abuse. 

Each sex deserves their own changing and rest room facilities.  So, don't violate their privacy rights.  That should be a crime.

In addition, girls and young women deserve their own sports programs.  They shouldn't have to compete with biological males which puts them at an unfair disadvantage.

Finally, do not demand that school employees lie about the sex of anyone.  That is a violation of First Amendment rights, and does a disservice to everyone including the person you want to help. 

The fact that I have to remind you of these basic truths, should embarrass you.
