Guidance Document Change: The Model Policies for the Treatment of Transgender Students in Virginia’s Public Schools guidance document was developed in response to House Bill 145 and Senate Bill 161, enacted by the 2020 Virginia General Assembly, which directed the Virginia Department of Education to develop and make available to each school board model policies concerning the treatment of transgender students in public elementary and secondary schools. These guidelines address common issues regarding transgender students in accordance with evidence-based best practices and include information, guidance, procedures, and standards relating to: compliance with applicable nondiscrimination laws; maintenance of a safe and supportive learning environment free from discrimination and harassment for all students; prevention of and response to bullying and harassment; maintenance of student records; identification of students; protection of student privacy and the confidentiality of sensitive information; enforcement of sex-based dress codes; and student participation in sex-specific school activities, events, and use of school facilities.

Transgenderism
 

This travesty of real science, real civil rights, and real feminism is beyond shameful!  If anyone believes that they are a horse, do you plan to force racetracks to allow them to race real horses, or do you get them therapy for their mental illness?  Males are NOT females and females are NOT males, down to their genetic coding.  That is science!

There is nothing holding up this insane house of cards that you are promoting except the underlying Marxist dogma whose aim is to destroy the foundations of civilized society, especially that found in America.

To encourage insanity is truly an evil thing.  And to do so to allow these males to compete against females in whatever extracurricular activities you deem necessary just to satisfy their male egos is kafkaesque.  Let them wallow in their nightmare, but leave all real females the hard-fought right to enjoy competitive sports, to savor victory and learn from loss, and to grow to become the confident women we need in our society. 

You are beyond evil to even be seriously considering such things as self-mutilation and sham pretense being acceptable, forcing the rest of us to go along with this charade.  Please read the Emperor with No Clothes and stop brainwashing our kids!!!
