VA proposed adoption of transgender policies
As a concerned voter with school aged children in my VA household and one who believes in the need to protect children, I do not approve of their proposed guidelines based on eradicating all distinctions between male and female and the indoctrination our school children. It is the job of the parents to guide the social, gender, religious and natural development of their children, not the school. It is completely unacceptable to propose that a school knows better and should encourage development of a child's sexuality without the parents' consent. This is a huge over reach of government upon the rights of parents to raise their children according to their believes instead of those of politicians who wish to use schools as locations to explore their social agendas. If a parent wishes to support their child through a gender transition, that is their choice as the care givers of that child. It is not the choice or right of a school. And if the parent does not believe such a transition, which has been shown in study after study to be harmful at younger ages, they have the right to protect their children from that. This is bad policy and must be rejected.
