Transgender Issues - Understanding vs Advocacy
Succinctly written, any policy, procedure, or curriculum on transgender issues should not include literally forcing others (whether by shunning, excluding, or even inciting violence) to agree in whether the issue is right or not and to advocate for other believes. Just as transgender individuals have rights, those who are not and don’t necessarily agree with aspects of it, have the right to respectfully disagree. My children attend Arlington Public Schools and they have felt bullied by transgender student and support groups. We believe in acceptance and include everyone in our lives - whether they believe or not in the same things we do. We should be treated with same respect.
