Virginia transgender bill 1612 sounds very restrictive


The Williams Institute at UCLA reports on Virginia's HB1612, as restricting student and adult transgender use of bathrooms to original birth certificate biological gender, article here. It doesn't seem as though there is a provision to allow parents to let the child change the gender on the certificate. The law would also apply to public buildings, and would require notification of parents if a student tries to get the pronoun of his/her person changed.

Some transgender students say they are not allowed to use any bathroom.

Emily left this comment "emilysvirtualrocket.blogspot.com" on the "wrong" blog, here. https://billboushkatd.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-agency-names-of-naming-agencies.html You can go there. But then, maybe she talks about trademark somewhere else on that blog as well as transgender (maybe there's a trademark issue somewhere with an org than helps trans people).
