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.

Strongly Oppose This Evil

Any adult who rejects their gender from birth is in need of serious mental help.  They are rejecting reality.  Any parent who pushes their child to physically / chemically try to change their gender and call them "trans" deserves to be put in prison for horrific child abuse.  Same for the doctors recommending it, as it is the ultimate betrayal of the Hippocratic oath.  I refuse to tolerate this terrible evil and act like this is "science".  The doctors supporting and pushing this are worse than Josef Mengele.

We Christians must TRULY love our neighbors, which means giving them TOUGH LOVE when you see people suffering from mental health issues and ESPECIALLY when we see children being permanently abused by the people who are supposed to protect them.  I WILL NOT tolerate this evil being pushed on our children.  To all of you supporting this agenda, may God have mercy on your soul.
