I support the model policy protecting transgender students. I stand firmly on the side of protections for free people to be who they are. It is wholly un-American to ask a fellow citizen to be anything less. I respect that there are those who disagree and you are entitled to your opinion and free to live as you see fit, but you are NOT entitled to make decisions for or dictate to other free people who they should be or how they should live. Ever. It is the sacred responsibility of the American government at all levels to protect the human rights, freedoms and safety of every American, not just those who think, act or look alike.
