These are very dangerous policies for Virginia's children, parents, and teachers. It does not make sense to enact these rules for a VERY small minority of children who identify as transgender. Consider all of the problems caused by allowing biological boys to compete against biological girls in sports. This has robbed these young women of opportunities and awards. This is a slippery slope which Virginia should not go down. No one can even imagine all of the complications that will arise. Staff and students would be subject to "disciplinary action" and perhaps legal suits if they don't use the "correct pronouns". Schools will be allowed to advise children to move forward with irreversible hormone treatments and surgeries, without the parents' knowledge. Unfortunately the popularity of transgenderism is spreading and many young people are making irreversible life decisions that will affect their future health, happiness, and well-being. We should not encourage this. And these policies would allow persecution of students and parents who believe that God created male and female, and it was good.
