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.

Support. Look up "intersex". It's Biology.

Before we understood them better,  our society called them hermaphrodites. With further advancement in the science of Biology, our society has more evidence that those with XXY chromosomes exist.  There are limitless variations of this type of deviation from the "norm" (for lack of a better word). That is why we say "assigned at birth" for those that want to transition.  Because in a less tolerant and more ignorant world,  the parents could choose what sex the child was assigned. And a lot of those times very inhumane and barbaric surgeries were done on infants who could not speak for themselves.  So in summation,  if you're just a bigot: accept it, understand it, and embrace it. But don't cite anything scientific bc you sound dumb.
