LIVE UPDATES: Prince William County School Board Votes On Transgender Policy

The Prince William County School Board held a meeting regarding a gender-identity regulation that is similar to Fairfax's policy. ResistanceMedia has been live-blogging the event since the beginning. This is my live commentary. Please read it. Thanks! 

7:23 PM: Prince William County School Board Chairman Ryan Sawyers has just kicked off the Prince William School Board meeting. Sawyers mentioned "auxiliary rooms" where additional spectators are being seated. You don't see this at the average school board meeting!

7:25 PM: Ryan Sawyers is getting ROASTED by Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall, who is stating that the policy is " beyond arbitrary and capricious", and is hammering him for "intentionally depriving Brentsville Citizens of their voice." This is in response to the Board's decision to move forward with the vote, even without a representative from the conservative Brentsville District. He also (accurately) stated that "speech codes" would be created to censor student and staff speech, as has been attempted in Fairfax County. 

7:33 PM: A Prince William student just played the "hate card", accusing all opponents of his worldview of being "haters." Interesting, while he claimed he would be speaking about "science", he also stated that gender was "assigned at birth." No serious scientist believes that nonsense. Except for a few dozen cases where there are serious genetic mutations, an individual either has XX chromosomes or XY chromosomes. Anyone whose "identity" does match their biology needs help, support, and respect, but not the ability to invade the spaces of other genders 

7:36 PM: The pro-transgender speaker, who appears to be a parent, is claiming that the policy change will result in "safer schools." What about the safety of the 99.7% of students whose privacy is being demolished in the name of the "identity" of 0.3% (or even less) students? Do they matter? 

7:37 PM: OK. I knew this would happen. A pro-transgender PWCS speaker just claimed that she "has been through the segregation era" and overtly compares reasonable measures to prevent student's privacy. 

7:42 PM: A student, who identifies as a "proud Latino and gay man" is basically just stating that anyone who opposes his agenda wants kids to commit suicide. How low can you go? We'll find out. 

7:45 PM: The current speaker has just exposed the real goals of this policy -- to censor students speech. She (or he) basically just said that this policy would protect students from conservative "rhetoric" (read: stating facts about gender and biology.) 

7:47 PM: A 16-year-old Nokesville resident (part of the Brentsville district which is not being represented) has given an amazing speech explaining the dangers this policy poses to girls and women. This is probably the BEST speech of all of them. ResistanceMedia will upload this speech to YouTube as soon as possible. 
"In America, we do not write laws to privilege a minority, especially when it will infringe on the right of the majority, especially the right to safety."
7:51 PM: This is the second speech from a girl who has totally demolished Ryan Sawyer's corrupt agenda. This is not about protecting students. It is about a political agenda. This is from her speech, we will make an EPIC video with this: 
"Truth is not determined by democratic vote. The truth is the truth whether you like it or not.  A person with XX chromosomes will always be female, a person with XY chromosomes will always be male. Whether you like it or not!"
7:56 PM: A resident of Haymarket in Prince William County just called Ryan Sawyers' school board a "three ring circus." 

8:00 PM: The speaker asked all audience members who oppose the policy change to stand up. About 90% of the audience stood up. Why is the school board jamming through this policy while the public is so opposed to them?

8:01 PM: A kid, who looks 13 or 14 years old, sarcastically claims that he "identifies as a king" and demands that he be addressed as such. Also, he dramatically presented 2,000 signatures, pointing out that there are not 2,000 residents in the town of Nokesville, and that "speaking of Nokesville... Nokesville has not been adequately represented!" 

8:07 PM: A supporter of the Human Rights Campaign, which is a homosexual lobbying group, compared this policy issue to "Rosa Parks, school segregation, and Brown vs Topeka Board of Education." I will have to post the video, this is extremely dishonest intellectually, and the most pathetic argument I have ever heard from a pro-LGBT activist, EVER! Note: this is the THIRD speaker in favor of the policy change to play the Race Card. 

8:14 PM: A 10-year-old girl demolished the policy, in 30 seconds, and less than 20 words. This issue is really very simple. Every young child knows: A boy is a boy and a girl is a girl. PERIOD. 

8:24 PM: The PWCS Teacher of the Year just identified as "pansexual" in front of the school board. This is a school board meeting and is not the place for you to talk about your sexual preferences!

8:27 PM: The said "teacher of the year" stated that this policy is a "matter of life and death." Of course, this rhetoric completely contradicts the fact that there have never been any reported cases of bullying or discrimination in Prince William County based on sexual orientation or gender identity. 

8:31 PM: This is something to note. While the LGBT advocates in the room claim that opposition to this policy is fueled by hate, out of of approximately 20 speakers expressing opposition to this policy, I have heard approximately 20 speakers, and all of them have been reasonable, logical, and not hateful towards anyone. 

8:35 PM: A speaker has just exposed that the new policy would require students to engage in "forced speech", i.e. compelling individuals to affirm "progressive sexual ethics" by calling others by the "pronouns" they prefer. Please note that "pronouns" do not just include "he" or "she", they also include invented terms such as "xe", "ze", "xir", and "zir." 

8:40 PM: The head of a civil rights law firm just basically threatened PWCS with legal action if they continue with this policy. We need these kinds of school board speakers in Fairfax!

8:48 PM: The current speaker is now arguing for active promotion of the LGBT agenda through school curriculum. This is totally unacceptable. 

8:51 PM: A pro-LGBT speaker is now reading some student's letter blaming the evil conservative bigots for his failing grades in Algebra 1. Seriously. 

8:55 PM: A local speaker is using her time to complain about the Confederate flag and KKK, and is calling for a ban on all students wearing the Confederate flag at school, despite their 1st Amendment rights to free speech. Her justification is that the flag was used by racist groups historically. But it has also been used by non-racists, such as those who are interested in history. 

9:05 PM: A citizen has presented his own petition, with 1,064 signatures of individuals who oppose this policy. In addition to the two other petitions previously presented, we are now up to 3,500 signatures that oppose this destructive move. I wonder how many signatures the proponents have gathered?

9:09 PM: Finally, someone has rejected the prevailing view among opponents of this disastrous policy: that we should "delay" the vote for more "consideration" of this issue. This policy is BAD and we should SAY that it is bad, rather than pretending to be open to it to avoid being called "bigots" by the radical Left. 

9:13 PM: As of now, 37 out of 43 speakers have expressed opposition to this policy. That is 86 percent of all speakers. I think that's called a supermajority.

9:16 PM: The current speaker is claiming that the Constitution requires the change to transgender policy, and is comparing opposition to this policy to support for Japanese internment, slavery and segregation. This is the either the fourth or fifth (I can't keep track) race-based argument made by the leftist speakers. Over half (5 out of 8.)

9:17 PM: Ryan Sawyers, the Prince William School Board chairman just now stated that "everyone has the right to speak freely." But what about PWCS students who, if this policy is passed, will be forced to, as one of the speakers have pointed out, "acknowledge progressive sexual ethics?" Do they have the right to speak freely? 

9:27 PM: An 8th grade girl from Nokesville, in southwestern Prince William County, is speaking on how the transgender agenda is contrary to natural law. She is totally right as to how bullying is a serious issue across public schools in America, presenting several anecdotes of horrible school bullying, and explaining that the victims were all straight, white, non-transgender students. Bullying is a serious issue, and most bullying has nothing to do with gender identity or sexual orientation. 

9:38 PM: Another parent is stating the true goal of this agenda -- a change in the curriculum. According to him, "classrooms will be used to inculcate" the progressive social agenda. This is has occurred in Fairfax County with the change to the Family Life Education (sex-ed) curriculum.

9:44 PM: A junior at Patriot High School has expressed her fear that the policy could result in suspension or expulsion from school for failure to use the proper transgender pronoun, such as "xe", "xir", or "hir". Again, this will occur in Fairfax County, and was reported by Breitbart in June 2016. 

10:00 PM: A Muslim imam from a local mosque spoke against this policy, proving that this is not just the evil conservative bigots who oppose "social transformation without representation." It is everyone who cares about their childrens' safety.

10:06 PM: School Board Chairman Ryan Sawyers just introduced the 61st speaker. Wow!

10:13 PM:  The school board has taken a 5-minute recess from business. Speeches will resume at 10:18 PM. 

10:21 PM: Speeches have resumed. 

10:25 PM: A speaker who has survived sexual abuse lent her perspective on the issue, stating that if a man came in her restroom, she would experience fear and anxiety. She needs diversity education to treat her transphobia!

As of now, it is 10:30 PM. Since ResistanceMedia is largely run by local students, and this is a school night, I must end the live commentary here. 

ResistanceMedia.org will release another article about this issue tomorrow. Stay tuned!
