      Everyone needs someone to confide in. If this confidence has been broken by a trusted counselor or gym teacher, etc, that could lead to the immediate danger of suicide or trust issues the rest of thier life. This is a dangerous bill.

      I've heard too many stories of gay youth who have been kicked out of their home when the parents find out they are gay. Those kiids are definitely not being protected. Forcing anyone to out them is outrageous.

      As a student of psychology, I firmly believe that taking away a school counselors ability to help students with personal and social issues is ignorant and detrimental to the mental health of our children. Growing up, the only issues my school counselors addressed were educational guidance and career goals. If there were someone available to speak to about personal issues in my life, I would not have had to deal with problems that arose from silence by myself. If you want to reduce school violence, Improve children's mental heath and self esteem, and provide a safe environment for our children to flourish in, then you will withdraw your support for this bill, especially you amendment to prevent counselors from discussing any personal or social issues with students.

      It undermines child safety. Tons of teenagers end up homeless when they are outed to their parents at the wrong time.
