I strongly oppose your recommendations and guidelines for transgender students/people in school bathrooms and locker rooms. I am the mother of a female student and you are infringing on her rights to privacy in the girls bathroom and locker room. As a young girl and even now I don’t feel comfortable changing clothes around other girls much less a MAN!!! You are putting my child’s safety at risk when you say it is ok for a biological male to go in the girls bathroom/ locker room because he feels like he is a girl. This gives boys/men the excuse to go in the bathroom to look at a girl naked or even rape her! There is no problem with you giving transgender people their own bathroom or changing area but their rights should not be more important than other peoples rights! The transgender population is less then 1% of the population and you are giving them rights over the majority! I hope in your liberal ways your child or daughter don’t get raped from choosing to do this! Wouldn’t that be a shame!!!
sincerely ed Va citizen!
