Letter: Rose Ellen Ray, Leesburg

Editor: I disagree with Jill L. Weiss’s support to add more students who want our School Board to recognize their preferred gender to its anti-discrimination policy. It will cause more harm than good.

The policy addition can have unintended derogatory effects on most of our students, whose own privacy may be compromised in bathrooms, showers and locker rooms. Or has modesty become antiquated in this crazy age of relativism?

News reports I have read indicate that some individuals who feel discriminated against are not satisfied with reasonable accommodation and disregard the valid concerns of others. The proposed policy change will embolden this response.

Our School Board must make reasonable accommodation to address students’ needs. Unreasonable accommodation can be demanded with this policy change.
