Man gives truly inspiring speech at Virginia Beach school board meeting [View all]


Moms for Liberty and the anti-trans culture war hogwash conservatives were hanging elections on was roundly rejected by voters across the country. The rejection was so thorough in places like Virginia that Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin may have to retire from political life for a while after his term is up in 2025.

Maybe they should have listened to Matthew Conner, a Virginia parent, in October, when he spoke in front of the Virginia Beach School Board and tried to simplify the choice as to whether or not to adopt the anti-trans education policies put forward by state Republicans and Youngkin.
