oppose with gentleness
I will spare all of you the details of my thought process. However, I feel compelled as a parent (first of all) and taxpayer (secondarily) to oppose what seems to be a misguided effort to confirm basic rights. I do not believe these policies, as written, are aligned with simple logic. If we were to extrapolate these policies to a natural next step, we are quickly asking policy-makers to establish guidelines where I dare to say that NOBODY (except perhaps the policy-makers themselves) wants to live. (myriad examples come to mind that I dare not codify in writing...but if you disagree with me, do yourself a favor and let your mind wander to places this sort of policy might inadvertently cause harm or confusion)
Establishing basic rights was done in the constitution. It needed to be clarified a few times in history and we are better for those clarifications. This 'clarification' oversteps grossly and creates an environment, in my opinion, where we have lost sense of what should be intuitive. I strongly oppose the proposal as it is written, although do not oppose the heart of the individuals wishing to create a 'safe space'...I acknowledge that language is my own.
