I STRONGLY OPPOSE every single one of the model policies drafted for the treatment of transgender students in the public school systems of Virginia.
"Parents who encourage their children to embrace their God-given sex will be at risk of being reported for child abuse or neglect." This is unthinkable. God gave these children to their parents to bring them up according to HIs word.
" A gender-neutral dress code will permit boys to wear skirts, and girls to go topless in activities where boys can do so, such as swimming activities or team activities (Draft Policy, p.16)." This is disgusting, and yet our school systems have filtering systems in place on student technology devices to prevent them from seeing pornographic material?
"The current state administration is committed to subjecting parents, families and teachers who resist the transgender policies to investigation, criminal charges, loss of job and perhaps more." This is really frightening.
What is our world coming to? All of this is wrong. Wrong. WRONG. Please pray fervently and rethink.
