Commonsense is being abandoned in the Commonwealth of VA

The idea that a counselor cannot help a client with unwanted sexual feelings is ridiculous.  Sexual feelings happen but what we do with them takes wisdom and discernment to do the right thing. 

Since a person's sex is hardwired into the DNA of that person, the science behind transgenders is lacking.  Since when did a collective of people concerned about the science of helping people become so unscientific and restrictive?
