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.

Harming our youth through gender confusion/distortion/manipulation


Children are happiest when they can live in truth. Living in a false “reality” only leads to sadness, depression, and low self-esteem, and even suicide. Catering to the depraved state society has sunk to through the sexual revolution’s systematic rejection of truth has brought us to this point in history where gender is rendered meaningless.  As you already know in your heart of hearts a persons gender, either male or female, cannot be changed by thought, hormone “therapy” or surgery. Sexual abuse and immortality has become so acceptable, children are now actively being sexualized and groomed by adults to be objects, and not persons of infinite value, loved by God and created in His image and likeness. Schools should in no way support this mutilation and twisted distortion of the human person. Sexual activity is to be exclusively for the bond and union of husband and wife, the gift of children, and the stability of the family.  Outside of these parameters sexual activity brings disorder and disaster, disease, broken hearts, depression, loss of dignity and self-worth, and emotional emptiness in individuals. It causes social unrest and resentment, makes life seem meaninglessness and without purpose and leaves people emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually empty. Immorality in the sexual sphere has reduced sex to a recreational activity between two people, using each other for sexual gratification. The sexual target gets younger and younger, leaving children used, abused, and confused. Why are the schools supporting this? Why are you supporting this? You are harming children by promoting this travesty. Get back to truth. Come back to God. Only then will there be peace.
