Transgender first-grader wins the right to use girls' restroom
CNN ^ | Ed Payne

Posted on 06/24/2013 5:46:35 PM PDT by Morgana

(CNN) -- A transgender first-grader who was born a boy but identifies as a girl has won the right to use the girls' restroom at her Colorado school.

The Colorado Rights Division ruled in favor of Coy Mathis in her fight against the Fountain-Fort Carson School District.

Coy's parents had taken her case to the commission after the district said she could no longer use the girls' bathroom at Eagleside Elementary. In issuing its decision, the state's rights division said keeping the ban in place "creates an environment that is objectively and subjectively hostile, intimidating or offensive."

The Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund praised the ruling that was filled under Colorado's Anti-Discrimination Act. Michael Silverman, the group's executive director, called the ruling "a high-water mark for transgender rights."

This is the first of it's kind ruling in the country regarding the rights of transgender students. No court, no tribunal has ever said what the Colorado Division of Civil Rights has said today which is that trangendered students must be treated equally. They specifically referenced the outmoded concept of separate but equal and told us that separate but equal is very rarely equal and it is certainly not equal in Coy's case.

Could work out... considering the obvious equipment issues and the fact that 6 year old boys have poor aim.

The Chinese are killing girls before they get out of the fetus.

Meanwhile, here in America, we are turning boys into girls before they get into first grade.

You notice that it rarely goes the other way?

There are relatively few girl that want to pretend they are boys.

You would think the numbers would be about even.

And which parent of a girl would want their child to still go to school there? I’m sure the lil puke’s parents or whatever pc term they use now for 2 married imnbeciles will hold the school hostage for everything from transgender books to parking to transgender security guards etc.

Mostly I think because while you hear about a few dads who "wanted a son" and treated their daughters as such there are a lot more mothers who "wanted a daughter" and treat their sons as such.

And when there is a father like that there usually is a mother to provide balance.

In the case of the mothers, not so much.

For those who don’t know the truth, they’re not turned into girls. Each has his penis surgically removed and an extra rectum grafted in to pose as a fake vagina.

Well I certainly hope they make him sit down to pee. No shortcuts for little boy with the unwanted pee-pee.

But seriously folk A 6 year old does not have the ability to decide what sex they want to be.

The Mother and father here are two sick Fudder Muckers who need to have this child taken away and raised by a man and wife who are not insane.

Today's journalists are proving to be lazy hacks. IBA makes a plausible argument to consider Munchasen by Proxy. Read it all.

Its Colorado, so they would probably find a lot of idiots who are willing to put their children in that school..I feel most sorry for this child, who is forever f*cked in the head because of his idiot parents who care more about ideology than to do what is best for their child..this kid is done

the fact that 6 year old boys have poor aim.

Unfortunately, judging from many public restrooms, practice does not make perfect.

Already started. Massive increase in meteors this year, sure sign of signs in the heavens, a portent of the great cleansing to come. This kid will never grow old enough to have his pecker removed surgically because the great meteor shower and comet this decemvber will wipe theplanet out.

If it has a penis, it’s a boy. If it has a vagina, it’s a girl. This educational moment for Coy’s idiot parents is brought to you be the letters G, T, F, and O, and the number zero.

Clearly a political stunt by her LGBT parents. Look into heir background and follow the trail back to one of the liberal activist groups. How in the hell does a 6 year old have the capacity to even understand what being transgender means unless their patents are shoveling it own their throats an d orogramming them. I remember when this would have been taken care of by a call to the local CPS office...

I am awaiting WARRIOR PRINCESS about a retired navy SEAL that recently took on his/her persona. His record as a good operator is unquestioned yet she makes an attractive female. Can’t wait until I try to wrap my head behind it, if possible.

I have experience dealing with a mother with Munchausen Syndrom by Proxy. You deal with it by moving, changing your phone numbers, and saying as little as possible to them when you pick up your son or daughter when its your weekend to see them. With that syndrome its all about drawing attention to themselves while pretending to be a good mother when, in fact, they are causing those very injuries or overdosing your children with too much medicine so they can “fix” them. Its very difficult to deal with because the AG is almost always on the side of the mother and automatically assumes the father is the guilty part if something goes wrong. If you walk into every Child Support Division of the AG its very obvious why. Almost all are women and many of them with chips on their shoulder from their own failed relationships. In fact i bet its a prerequisite to work there.

Who would want their little girls in that school to share their bathroom with little Whatzis? And how could you prevent other boys from claiming to be transgender in order to gain access to the girls’ bathroom in order to molest or rape the little girls?

>> The Colorado Rights Division ruled in favor of Coy Mathis <<

Attention "Colorado Rights Division": I woke up this morning and came to terms with the fact I am a "transgendered American" and mentally "feel" female, although in fact I am biologically male.

In order to stop living a lie and feel more comfortable with my orientation, I MUST have access to the ladies dressing room for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models immediately. If I could also shower with my fellow ladies, that would be ideal.

Thanks for your understanding about my condition. I am not ashamed of it. And if you call me a guy just because I happen to be biologically male, I will sue your ass.
