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.

.How can professing educated people promote transgenderism? Crazy!

How can we, professing educated adults, support this illness of gender dysphoria? Transgender is an illness.  The children, specifically ages 0-21, are not physically or cognitively capable of choosing their gender after conception.  Simply put... none of us can biologically change our gender.  It is naturally impossible and, if you really seek evidence, it is medically impossible.  

So, my question remains: How can we, supposedly educated adults, support this illness of gender dysphoria? Transgender is an illness.  The job of the education system is to educate students with ‘truth’ not deform their minds promoting their deformed ‘ideas’ or ‘obsessions’ (i.e. ‘I don’t want to be a girl/boy.’ ‘I am fat, ugly, stupid.  I am not valued so I’ll just commit suicide.’ etc). Is anorexia a supported ‘idea’ in the education of our children or is it presented as an ‘eating disorder’?  Note: It is a proven eating disorder caused by mental illness. Many more such proven examples can be presented to debunk the transgender agenda (i.e. drug abuse, alcoholism, pedophilia, etc.).  

We the People must return to the simple and teach the children intellectually not promote their ideas and/or the deformed ideas of cancel culture groups that could care less about the children and the family unit. This bill will only promote the illness and ultimate destruction and death of the children and their families suffering with its physical, mental, and emotional effects. 

Should you need evidence of studies to prove the above, do your homework.  You are the elected official put in office by “We the People”.... do your due diligence and defend the children and their families suffering with transgenderism.  Do not be negligent to deny it as an illness and get help to the children suffering with the promotion of their developmental ‘ideas’ which cause them harm.  

When we entertain ideas, do we not promote them?  

Kinda crazy to think that we as a society are even debating such a simple issue that, bluntly put, merely needs solid counseling from God fearing parents, families, teachers, counselors, politicians, etc.     PERIOD
