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.

Definitely not

Absolutely not!!! This is not a biological phenomenon to begin with; it’s the result of an unstable mental status and confused young individuals who have issues dealing with reality. They’re young people lacking guidance from their parents who have not made the time or wanted to deal with their children’s instabilities and problems. It’s about denouncing God’s creation by choosing to become what we were not created to be. It’s a rebellious sin against every word of the good “Book”. Don’t you dare calling me hateful or any other names, just for expressing my opinion and what I believe in. People are born equal and deserve to be treated that way, but we have to draw the line somewhere. Do you ever wonder why families are falling apart! What is happening to our society, what is happening to our world, a world with declining moral fiber. What happened to our social values! We're living in a corrupt fake environment full of lies and deceit. Our school system is part of this increasing pattern of abnormality, when politics, transgender and other non school related subjects are being tough and promoted to students, being referred to as the new "civilized world". I refuse for my children to be part of this bathroom sharing, yet I encourage our schools to solemnly designate special bathroom facilities for them, and I also encourage our children to offer them the same similar respect they offer anybody else.
