Oppose drafts on transgender policies HB145 and SB161
I am opposed to the drafts on transgender policies, HB 145 and SB 161. These policies would infringe the First Amendment Rights of parents to raise and care for their children and they would potentially pit children against their parents on important issues regarding sex and gender identity.
Also, no one, child nor adult, should be forced to share showers, locker rooms, or other intimate settings with members of the opposite biological sex. Many children, and adults, would feel uncomfortable and even threatened, when they encounter a member of the opposite sex in gendered facilities.
Schools should NOT accommodate the harmful view that youth is an appropriate time to encourage "gender transitions", especially irreversible ones.
