These troubling policies proposed by VDOE are totally unworkable and will force all students, faculty and administrators to comply with an empirically false view of sex and gender, even if it directly conflicts with their own fundamental beliefs.
However you choose to identify when you are an adult is entirely up to you, but you are born a male or female with appropriate parts to that fact. The bible says: ...male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:27) He created them male and female...(Genesis5:2) [Jesus said,]"But from the beginning of the creation, God 'made them male and female,'" (Mark 10:6) [Jesus said,] "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female.'" (Matthew 19:4) No matter what you "choose" to identify with, you are anatomically either male or female. No male should be allowed to use a female bathroom/locker room or changing room (that opens up all kinds of sexual misconduct/harrassment) nor should they be allowed to participate in girls/women's sports. Our school systems/government should not be "teaching" our children what gender they are. GOD HAS ALREADY DECIDED THAT!!!
