Every child, including those struggling with sexual confusion, should be protected from harm and harassment. Virginia has a good anti-bullying law. But this new, proposed policy goes way beyond prevention and crosses the line into the mandatory promotion of politicized, sexualized ideology.
Scientific studies and medical experts make clear the majority of children outgrow gender confusion by the time they reach puberty—it’s, at best, irresponsible to push the involuntary promotion of gender confusion in a public education setting—and, at worst, actually damaging to kids who are still developing.
This policy is "anti-science", totally ignoring the reality of basic DNA science and biology.
Students should be treated with respect, protected from bullying, and taught scientific truth. Instead this policy would force them to to have their privacy, and educational and athletic opportunity destroyed in misguided and destructive ideological brainwashing.
Unless this policy is significantly revised, it should be rejected.
