Guidance Document Change: The Model Policies for the Treatment of Transgender Students in Virginia’s Public Schools guidance document was developed in response to House Bill 145 and Senate Bill 161, enacted by the 2020 Virginia General Assembly, which directed the Virginia Department of Education to develop and make available to each school board model policies concerning the treatment of transgender students in public elementary and secondary schools. These guidelines address common issues regarding transgender students in accordance with evidence-based best practices and include information, guidance, procedures, and standards relating to: compliance with applicable nondiscrimination laws; maintenance of a safe and supportive learning environment free from discrimination and harassment for all students; prevention of and response to bullying and harassment; maintenance of student records; identification of students; protection of student privacy and the confidentiality of sensitive information; enforcement of sex-based dress codes; and student participation in sex-specific school activities, events, and use of school facilities.

Transgenderism: Why are we lying to our children? Boys are boys and girls are girls. Period.

It is not right to teach our children that they can be other than the way they are born.  You cannot change the truth into whatever you desire.  What is natural is natural and what is unnatural is at the least, a strange hybrid, and at the most, an outright abomination.

It is not right to expect parents to allow their children to be used as experiments by the medical community, the psychologists, the atheists, and the pedophiles.  It is not right to subject children to the horrors of sexual exploitation in the name of education.  People don't have to be educated about how to have sex or what kind of sex to have.  A proper education would be to instruct children on how to protect their own body from unwanted demands or invasions.  A teen-aged child should hear about abstinence, not excess.

Since we supposedly want everyone to be heard, why don't (or won't) you hear the voices of those who object to transgender policy making?
