I strongly oppose the proposed transgender policy under consideration. For a state that purports to “go by the science,” transgenderism emphatically denies biological science. This proposed policy is seeking the approval of a small minority of confused folks that need psychological and spiritual help. Instead of providing real help to these troubled few, our state seeks to impose its will upon the many. History will inevitably find that promoting transgender/gender identity policies, which contradict societal norms, will prove to have been destructive and harmful. The health and welfare of our children will suffer irreparable damage from the illogical, unfounded reasoning being proposed. It is shameful that the state of VA has stooped so low that it would consider endangering the lives of the young while also trampling upon the right of parents.
