I am expressing my full support of Virginia's adoption of this policy. As a parent of a gender expansive child, I can fully understand the life changing implications of inclusion. We only benefit from living in a world where people are free to be who they are.
Over the past few years, I have opened myself up information on gender and what that actually means. If you think gender is binary as I once did, your information is outdated, and misinformed. Please challenge yourself to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, and I have no doubt that you will find compassion there.
