Complaint filed in case of 6-year-old transgender girl
Colorado Springs Gazette ^ | February 26, 2013 | Carol McGraw

Posted on 02/26/2013 9:45:41 PM PST by Washi

Six-year-old Coy Mathis explains her predicament in the simplest of terms:

“I want to go to school. We play games at recess,” the first grader said Tuesday.

But the transgender girl is being home schooled this semester because she has been denied access to the girls’ bathroom at Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8, her parents say.

New York-based Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund attorneys said they filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division on behalf of her parents Kathryn and Jeremy Mathis, saying Coy has been discriminated against.

Forcing Coy to use a different bathroom than the girls, “is targeting her for stigma, bullying and harassment,” said Michael Silverman, TLDE attorney and executive director. He said that Colorado law prevents schools from discriminating against transgender students.

No. I'm pretty sure that his parents convincing him that he's "transgender" so that they can be the center of attention for all of their "progressive" friends is what's targeting him for stigma, bullying and harassment.

Selfish, stupid pricks.

Children deserve a childhood.

Of course. This sounds a clear case of child abuse to me.

The story says at age FOUR the child (boy) asked his parents to “fix his body” because he was a girl. Yeah, right. And they use their six year old’s picture right in the article, so maybe he can be bullied some more. But notice the picture only as two of the three triplets, because god forbid they show their third child, the one that has a true disability from contracting meningitis. That’s the one we should be caring for and making sure he gets all he needs.

Its a boy that apparently has a sad excuse for a “parent” who decided they wanted a girl instead of a boy (don’t know if this was planned while the child was still in-utero, or if this was a decision made after).

I had a student years ago who’s mother had set her mind to having a baby girl, including decorating the baby room in strong “girl” designs. Along comes little Leland... a boy. But that didn’t stop “mom” who dressed Leland as a baby girl, now even beginning to allow “boy” clothing until he was a toddler (under pressure from family and eventually the little community they lived in). Dalton was, as long as I knew him, extremely effeminate... and “decided” he liked boys better than girls... and all was encouraged by mom.

A definite product of his environment.

It’s the parents who should be facing a court, not a school.

Relate to?... 99.9999% of the time you are a male or a female. It doesn’t matter what you “relate” to, if this kid decides tomorrow that he is truly a DOG, will you all be so happy to put a collar and leash on him and make him poop in the backyard and tell society to call him Spot?

Kathryn Mathis said she is telling her child’s story publicly because, “The more transgender issues are talked about the better it is. With awareness comes acceptance.”

Becoming aware of sin does not make one accepting of it.

The state requires me to prove that I can drive a car before they let me on the road, yet any dillhole can have a kid.

It’s bad enough that this child’s parents decided to ruin his life, but that a medical ‘professional’ would agree to be a part of it is just stupefying to me. Immoral and unethical acts against a child. Some people truly do not deserve to walk this earth.

Come to think of it when my daughter was four or five she used what I thought were “pretend” scissors and cut most of the hair off the sides of her head! The half mullet that was left was already way out of style :) and the hairdresser basically said “start over” and cut her hair very short. She was a Tom girl, played rough then and is athletic now. And that little girl in ripped, grassed stained jeans and T-shirts got called a boy a lot. But that didn’t make her a boy! She’s now into dresses and has long hair, a beautiful, feminine girl who can still kick butt when called upon! But definitely still a girl! Could you imagine some nut job parent deciding for their kid at three that they’re a different gender and convincing them of
it? How horrible! All of the kids childhood pictures— he’ll be dressed as a girl!

Who could have even imagined 20 years ago the kind of sick perverted abuse that would be heaped upon innocent children along with the demands that the horrific abuse should be embraced and accepted as normal?

Besides dealing with Coy’s challenges, another of the triplets, Lily, contracted meningitis at age 4 months, and is disabled.

Is this when the parents decided that they needed to "replace" Lily?

Isaiah must have left off

Woe unto them that call male female, and female male.

the parents told the child s/he couldn’t have any body change operations until s/he is an adult. So far s/he hasn’t had any meds. It’s all been attitude and clothes and other social affectations.

So was he born with both parts? I know a girl that was in my school that that happened to. She was a little “butch” looking but turned out to be a model and a beautiful woman. I think at some point she had surgery to remove the “male” parts. Not sure if this is what happened to this child though.

If you had gone to my High school, many boys would have said they were transgendered if only to get in to the girls bathroom or locker rooms if they could have! Ya gotta wonder how many perverts are doing that today, as adults.

Jim, I am curious as to your perspective on a situation like this.

I've heard of such a thing before (actually, I think here at FR was where I first read of such a thing).

What if you have a child who simply and consistently insists from infancy that he is a girl. What if you try to gently prod him in the direction of being what he is biologically, but no matter what you do, he insists he's a girl and not a boy, and won't be cast into a male identity no matter what you say or do? What do you do then?

It seems to me that such children do exist - like children who are born with Down's Syndrome, or autistic, or without feet, or as conjoined twins.

I think they are rare, but I think some do exist. And for those it seems to me that there is no way parents will ultimately force them to live as their biological gender.

So what do you do?

More from the article:

Coy was identified as a male at birth, but since age 18 months has insisted she is a girl, and has attended school as a girl since December, 2011. Her teachers referred to her as a girl, and she dressed like one and used the girls bathroom, her mother says.

“At 18 months of age Coy gravitated to girl things and very much disliked boy things,” Mathis said. She liked tutus and makeup and dresses. Coy’s brother was all boy, who liked monsters, and trucks and roughhousing.

“We had two boys with the same clothes and toys and they were so different. Coy was growing up very much a girl. We could compare the two and knew that we weren’t causing Coy to like certain things. We decided to let her just be who she is.”

When she was two and a half, Coy was anxious if she left the house dressed as a boy. She wanted princess dresses and hair bows. “If it was jeans and a polo shirt you could just see the happiness drain from her face,” Mathis said.

At age four, she asked them to take her to a doctor “to fix her body,” Mathis said.

By then, Mathis said she was expecting that conversation. “I was sad. It’s not something an innocent four year old should think of.” They told her she could go to the doctor, but that she couldn’t alter her body until she was an adult. That satisfied her.

Mathis said her husband, who is a former Marine and disabled veteran, “took more time to accept it.”

But then they decided that not letting Coy be who she was would cause her harm.

They consulted a psychologist, doctor and other parents of transgender children and support groups.

From one of the comments at the site:

The article says Coy was born a boy. Genetically and outwardly Coy is male. But inside, mentally and most likely physically (with brain structure), Coy is a girl. That is what transgendered is: you are genetically one gender, but feel completely as the other gender. They are *not* hermaphrodites - they have fully formed sexual organs for their genetic gender. But some studies have shown that the brain structure is that of the opposite gender, leading to the person feeling as if they were born the wrong gender.

I'm not a doctor, and frankly don't know anything about it. I'm just thinking out loud. What if in rare instances there are people whose brain structure is so opposite that they simply are never going to accept being their biological gender? Like the various kinds of people I mentioned before, or like (as some others have mentioned) people born with both sets of organs?

What does one do then?

In the rational world, I can't imagine how a 6-yr-old can be deemed a "transexual." No matter how they try to spin it.

Well, I’m not really intending to push anything, Jim. I frankly don’t have any answers. And I’m not pretending to.

Nor am I making any excuses at all for parents who, at the first sign of Johnny wanting to play with dolls, proclaim him a “she.”

I’m just noting that in RARE instances there are some odd things in the world.

On kind of a different note, are you familiar with the Hensel twins?

I didn't bring up the topic. I only asked some fairly obvious questions.

Are Christians not capable of considering moral dilemmas? Or are Christians supposed to pretend that moral dilemmas don't exist?

The world is looking for answers, and some of the questions people have, have to do with moral dilemmas.

I would rather see the church have answers to people's questions, than not. And I don't think we find answers by sticking our heads in the sand and avoiding the questions.

If this is not a child abuse issue just on mental indoctrination about gay & lesbian identities, I do not what is.

Coy was identified as a male at birth, but since age 18 months has insisted she is a girl.

How exactly does an 18 month old determine that he/she is the wrong sex without outside influence? I graduated H.S. in 1981 and there was one guy that we all figured he way gay, but he tried out for sports and failed miserably but he tired. The idea of him using the girls restroom or locker room would have gotten the school sued if not worse.

>>>It’s bad enough that this child’s parents decided to ruin his life, but that a medical ‘professional’ would agree to be a part of it is just stupefying to me.<<<


This guy was a pediatrician.

Abdel Aziz Ali Abdulmajid al-Rantissi23 October 1947 – 17 April 2004) was the co-founder of the Palestinian Islamist organization Hamas with Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.

Rantissi was Hamas’s political leader and spokesman in the Gaza Strip following the Israeli killing of Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmad Yassin in March 2004.[1] Like most Hamas members, Rantissi opposed any compromise with Israel and called for the creation of a state of Palestine (including the whole of the State of Israel) through military exertion against the Jewish state.


And this guy is also a doctor/surgeon:

Mahmoud al-Zahar (born 1945) is a co-founder of Hamas and a member of the Hamas leadership in the Gaza Strip.


And this guy is another “medical professional”:

Dr. Thabet Thabet, a pediatrician and leader of Yasir Arafat’s Fatah. ... Thabet was also responsible for numerous other shooting attacks by Fatah activists in the area, and was involved in planning bombing attacks.

The real problem is that parents, and that cannot be fixed. There have always been bad parents. They have always raised disturbed children, who grow up to be disturbed adults. Trying to fix that will, like most government intrusions, make the problem even worse. I feel sorry for the poor little boy, but it’s too late to intervene.

As for the political and legal problem, that’s easy to fix. Post new restroom signs at the school, with the first word in large letters and the rest as fine print:

BOYS - and “girls” who have dangly parts

GIRLS - and “boys” who do not have dangly parts

Problem solved. There are signs on the restrooms that are clear to the kids with normal parents, that are understandable to this poor abused boy, and that should satisfy the predatory parents and lawyers who are willing to ruin a child’s life to make a political point or to make a few dollars.

No. I'm pretty sure that his parents convincing him that he's "transgender" so that they can be the center of attention for all of their "progressive" friends is what's targeting him for stigma, bullying and harassment. Selfish, stupid pricks.

I'm beginning to wonder... Are these people being paid to do this? Are they willing to destroy their children's life for some reward from a Soros-like endowment just to create societal turmoil and destroy the country?

The view of transgender activists is that it is child abuse if young children aren’t taught not only that they can grow up to love whatever sex they’d like, but also that they can choose to grow up as whatever sex they’d like.

Seriously.
