      West Point, Virginia is a town of about 3,000 people east of Richmond, Virginia. It’s in King William County, population about 15,000. King William County voted for Trump over Hillary by a 2:1 margin. This is no big city.

      It’s a town where the high school band marches down the street wearing white dresses (well, except for the biological girls who have decided they’re now boys). It’s not downtown Washington, D.C. or even Alexandria, Virginia.

      If a public school teacher can be fired–not just fired by the school board, but unanimously fired–for using the ideologically “incorrect” pronoun in West Point, Virginia, this can happen anywhere. The ideology is simply that pervasive.

      Be warned.
