-- Informed her school board that the next superintendent must “not violate Title IX, not just in the female sports by allowing males to unfairly compete and possibly severely injure the girls, but also not allow males to take over bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms and push out females, denying them their right for privacy and safety.” (Begins at 53:55)

-- Warned another Virginia school board that fair bathroom policy “allows the man who identifies as the woman” into facilities and “tells young girls who are students that you don’t care how they feel and you will be discriminating against your own students, potentially opening them up to sexual harassment...sexual assault or rape.” (Begins at 8:50)

-- Response to a gender services clinic in Seattle: “This is horrible- a place where our children will be sterilized."

-- Attempted to discredit the identities of transgender youth by referring to trans kids as  “gender confused children.”
