I am vehemently opposed to the proposed new policies regarding transgender students in Virginia public schools. As a mom of 4, including 3 daughters, I believe the policies outlined will effectively end girls’ sports. Once transgender males are able to compete on the team of their choice, young women will be at a grave disadvantage, both on the athletic field and in the locker room. These proposed policies are extreme and confusing to young kids, pushing and affirming a radical choice in childhood with grave consequences for their whole life. In addition, the disregard for parents’ views and wishes discriminates particularly against religious families, making a mockery of the toleration for others the policy framers profess to believe in.
