Youngkin Promotes Parental Voice Over Children’s Gender and Pronouns

September 19th, 2022 4:03 PM

Governor Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) has angered lefty lunatics that want school kids to be able to select a brand new gender without interference from their pesky parents. Youngkin edited the state’s transgender policies Friday in order to give parents the transparency they deserve regarding their child’s educational experience. 

Youngkin revised the state’s Model Policy for public schools that was initially crafted in March 2021. That policy was withdrawn and the new, 2022 version took effect last week on Sep. 17.

Updates include the fact that parents need to be in the know about their children attempting to identify as a gender different than the one they were assigned at birth. Youngkin made it clear that schools “shall respect parents’ values and beliefs” as they are the “child’s primary and most important educator.” He’s exactly right. 

Specifically, the guidelines indicated: 

Parents are in the best position to work with their children and, where appropriate, their children’s health care providers to determine (a) what names, nicknames, and/or pronouns, if any, shall be used for their child by teachers and school staff while their child is at school, (b) whether their child engages in any counseling or social transition at school that encourages a gender that differs from their child’s sex, or (c) whether their child expresses a gender that differs with their child’s sex while at school.

Going even further, Youngkin’s statement insisted “School personnel shall keep parents fully informed about all matters that may be reasonably expected to be important to a parent.”

But the left doesn’t want parents to have a say in what goes on in classrooms because that ruins their chance to indoctrinate and brainwash the youth while they’re in what they consider to be a “safe zone” ( the schools funded by ... parents).

Leftists are in fits of rage after hearing about Youngkin’s new policy. Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) claimed Youngkin's overhaul would prohibit kids from being themselves:

“Be themselves?” She really meant to say “be someone they’re not" because that's exactly what transgender people are. 

ACLU of Virginia was “appalled” and suggested that Youngkin’s administration would increase the “self-harm & suicide rates” for kids in VA:

The Recount insisted that Youngkin’s policy would cause teachers to “purposefully misgender students”:

No, it’s not misgendering. It’s “trusting the science!”

Other accounts are still posting their hissy fits regarding the policy changes and pushing the false narrative that this will “hurt” kids. 

The thing is, kids can still chose to be transgender. Younkin’s overhaul doesn’t stop that from happening, it simply gives parents the voice that they deserve in their children’s education. 

Really, if a kid wants to change gender, as the new policy states, they just need a permission slip. This is not about control, its about transparency.
