This makes want to fuckin scream

A Minnesota Department of Education advisory council voted to approve a new toolkit for "Safe and Supportive Schools for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students" in front of a room of more than 200 opponents and advocates of LGBTQ issues Wednesday.

The motion was met with cheers from advocates for transgender students, led by OutFront Minnesota and its allies, who wore purple at the gathering at the department's offices in Roseville.

Opponents of the toolkit, led by the Minnesota Family Council, a conservative Christian coalition, wore red.

The toolkit, approved by the School Safety Technical Assistance Council, is a nonbinding guide with information about providing welcoming environments for all students and guidelines for school officials to support transgender and gender-nonconforming students.

The toolkit stems from a desire to combat bullying in schools, said state Human Rights Commissioner Kevin Lindsey.

Opponents said it goes too far.

"Concerns of gender-conforming students and parents are ignored and dismissed" by the toolkit, said John Helmberger, CEO of the Minnesota Family Council.
