As Twitchy reported earlier, students from schools in Virginia walked out in protest of Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s “proposed restrictions on transgender students’ rights.” The walkouts have been featured on ABC News and in USA Today and the Washington Post. Plenty of local D.C. television stations were on hand as well, as this was near enough to be considered local news.
They’re walking out of school in the most liberal part of Virginia because Glenn Youngkin decided that parental consent should be required before children can be called by a different name or gender in schools and make decisions that could lead to irreversible bodily harm. https://t.co/EvkIccr6KP

Here’s a challenge for all Twitchy readers. We’ve seen this interview retweeted a million times with text like, “Watch this.” It’s an interview with one of the students who walked out — a non-binary senior who’s so scared of Youngkin that she breaks down into tears. Watch it and see if it doesn’t change your mind about Youngkin’s policies.
“How can he stand there and say he loves this country and loves this state if he wants to hurt us?” –Casey Calabia, 17, a non-binary senior at McLean High School to @GovernorVA @mclean_gsa @PrideLiberation @wusa9 pic.twitter.com/U0Zm5xzn1d

This editor was … unmoved. Today’s kids are so fragile they’ll cry at anything, and progressives have fed every feeling of victimhood that comes along with being young. The fact is, there are public schools that are “transitioning” students without their parents’ knowledge. Your non-binary identity is supposed to be a secret between you and your teachers and the guidance counselor and maybe the school nurse.
What do you think?
There is a serious mental illness crisis occurring in this country and it is being fueled by media, instigated by big tech and corporations, and enabled by the left side of the government. We won’t witness the ramifications of this until years from now, & if we don’t address it https://t.co/Uw1tsxjN9W

if you can’t see this is a mental illness, afflicting children and enabled by the gender cult, you’re not paying attention. https://t.co/0C6AorUmfp

An intrepid reporter might ask, “why are there so many non-binary and trans kids today?” https://t.co/D5jDvQh6sB

Nobody wants to hurt you.
Refusing to confront your issues and instead playing pretend isnt going to lead you to a happy life. https://t.co/ooH6jvexIt

This is one of those moments when you realize that the discussion over gender is finished — if you don’t buy into it, you’re not allowed to address it, question it, have any say in it … even if you’re a parent. We now know that the doctor makes a guess as to a baby’s sex when it’s born but sometimes the doctor is wrong, and all you can do is affirm a child’s gender choices.
School’s ‘transition closet’ allows kids to change into clothes that fit their real identity, like the superheroes they are https://t.co/QvZd5lcYTm
