[AUTHENTICITY CERTIFIED: Text version below transcribed directly from audio]

My name is Tanner Cross and I am speaking out of love for those who suffer with gender dysphoria.

60 Minutes this past Sunday interviewed over 30 young people who transitioned, but they felt led astray because lack of push back or how easy it was to make physical changes to their bodies in just three months.

They are now detransitioning.

Itís not my intention to hurt anyone, but there are certain truths that we must face when ready.

We condemn school policies, like 8040 and 8035, because it would damage children and defile the holy image of God.

I love all of my students but I will never lie to them regardless of the consequences.

Iím a teacher but I serve God first and I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl, and vice versa, because:

It's against my religion.

Itís lying to a child.

Itís abuse to a child.

And it is sinning against our God.
