In this culture's attempt to promote relativism, we are allowing the silent majority and people of faith to be discriminated against (I know many of you disagree and will stop reading or label me non-inclusive). Yes, we all certainly need to ACCEPT one another, but we cannot be forced to APPROVE of one another's choices, lifestyle, gender identity, etc. There is a big difference between ACCEPTANCE and APPROVAL. This proposal is an attempt to force everyone to APPROVE of transgenderism, not just ACCEPT it. Therefore it is non-inclusive to people who disagree, and if implemented, anyone could face consequences (or be labeled "non inclusive") simply for using words like "he" or "she", regardless of intent.
Kids make mistakes (just like we adults do). Many youth also lie (just like many adults do). Those types of sins are prevalent, and we can't just turn a blind eye to that fact. This proposal is way too subjective and will be quickly abused by bullies and lying youth (it could be argued that there are more bullies than transgender students, so the risk is real). Do we really want to make it easy for a bully (or sexual predator) to enter un-questioned into the girls' bathroom/locker room (and have the right to do so by this proposal)? What mental health consequences can we expect from that unintended side effect? It's too subjective - there's no way to tell if the person is lying about their gender identity or not. Biological gender is objective enough to be clear so that it's not so easily abused. Can we really be that trusting to think that this proposal will make things safer for the majority? I understand that there is concern for the well-being of the transgender minority, but unfortunately life is not fair and we can't make everyone "happy" all the time. Yes, all students should be accepted in our schools, but that does not mean we need to create subjective rules to attempt to force everyone to comply and approve of the gender identity that such students would be allowed to change on a day-to-day basis.
Please don't approve this proposal. I would like for my daughters to stay in the public school system. I want them to be accepting, kind, and loving to all. But I don't want them to be forced to approve activities that go against their faith, and I certainly don't want them to be unsafe spiritually, mentally, and physically from the consequences of such a proposal.
