(CNN) -- Just like she did during the first half of the school year, first grader Coy Mathis wants to use the girls' restroom at her Colorado elementary school. But school officials won't let her.
The reason? Coy is transgendered, born with male sex organs but a child who identifies herself as female.
She has dressed as a girl for most of last year. And her passport and state-issued identification recognize her as female.
In December, the Fountain-Fort Carson School District informed Coy's parents that Coy would be barred from using the girls' restrooms at Eagleside Elementary in Fountain after winter break.
Transgender kids: Painful quest to be who they are
She could instead use the boys' bathroom, gender-neutral faculty bathrooms or the nurse's bathroom, the district said.

A first grader has no sexual identity and if they want to wear girl’s clothing, it has nothing to do with being identified as a woman or “transgendered.” Anyone, including this kid’s parents, who encourages the kid to identify as a girl and use the girls restroom is guilty of child abuse.
parental brainwashing of a poor boy, this is mental child abuse.
Sooooo...genetically, it is a man.
I am failing to see the problem with him using the male restroom.
This is a little disingenuous. It’s not like this little kid is a transsexual. In the past the sexual orientation of hermaphrodites would start to display early on, and the parents would be encouraged to follow the lead.
This is a horribly sad situation and idiot adults are making it worse. No wonder these kids opt for suicide when they are teens.
Kids with boy parts use the boys bathroom, pretty simple.
The parents have turned this child into an object of ridicule to other kids
Good ole mom got this one messed up royally.
I keep looking up for the big asteroid. Can’t be long now.
The parent are somewhere between sick and ignorant.
Watch as the boy turns 13 and is declared a lesbian....
What 18 month old kid talks or thinks like that? They don’t. The parents did this.
I keep looking up for the big asteroid. Cant be long now.
Hey Norton, this is what lies ahead if the LGBT crowd infiltrates our society.
Transgendered 6 year olds.
And apparently you prefer their company to that of God fearing Freepers.
If you support these parents then you must hate their little kid.
I remember hearing the stories years ago about how kids this age would watch “The Adventures of Superman”,then jump out of their second-story bedroom window trying to fly.
I suspect this will lead to similar results.......
At least back then parents didn’t go before a judge and demand “flight-enabling” Superman capes for their kids......
Like MA, how long before the girls are punished for not wanting to share a bathroom with a boy?
I think that way too.
Anyway we could beat up the parents for confusing their child at that age.
I can’t wait until the trend becomes something like asian kids that demand that they were actually born latino!
You must respect them as latino! They may be born asian, but their heart says they’re latino!
That is a great point. I've often wondered why these young kids commit suicide so easily. I think it's the "adults" who are causing it. Liberals teach them that the whole world is evil and everyone must be miserable. If you're not miserable, you're not "a nice person".
Jeez, when I was in first grade I thought I was the “radio guy” on a Fairchild Flying Boxcar. I wasn’t, was I?
Future drug addicted severely depressed suicide...thanks mom and dad.
Or how long before a lot of 14 year old boys all the sudden become "transgendered" to get into the girls' bathroom?
If the boy said he was really a dog, they’d have him on a leash pooping in the yard in no time. They they would have psychiatrists and others affirm his decision and not let him change his mind.
WTF is wrong with these people??!! They should be spayed and neutered so they can’t inflict this on any other child.
When I was a little girl, I wanted to be Rima, Queen of the Jungle. If my parents let me sleep in trees when I was in first grade, they would have been called out on it- first off, they wouldn’t let me do squat. I was a tomboy to the nth degree but NEVER thought I was a boy.
So, fast forward 15 years into this mixed up kid’s life- I foresee gay bars, possible prostitution, inability to identify with males or females, especially classmates, severe drug abuse and no relationship with these sperm and egg donors.
You wrote “Liberals teach them that the whole world is evil and everyone must be miserable. If you’re not miserable, you’re not “a nice person”.
I remember thinking this about those horrible Charles Schulz “Peanuts” comic strips when I was growing up. I wanted to kick Charlie Brown right in the a$$.
I notice the article went all PC referring to the confused and abused little boy as “she” throughout the article.
Romans 1:18 “God’s wrath is revealed from heaven....”
But of course they will blame us "mean, intolerant Christian conservatives" for it.
By forcing Coy to use a different bathroom than all the other girls, the school is "targeting her for stigma, bullying and harassment," Michael Silverman, one of Coy's lawyers and the executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, sa
or the showers
Now here is a case where Social Services could investigate and make a recommendation for court action and foster care.
If not, God owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.
It's a boy. You see how the MSM writes themselves into a corner with their crap
Take your kids out of public schools, people.
You start with your Grand Mother’s front porch... and you discover once you split your head open that no you can not fly.
I turned out OK though... this kid will not.
“I’m a boy, I’m a boy but my mom won’t admit it...”
This is a difficult one. In mammals, including humans, about halfway through gestation, male fetuses release some testosterone from their testes, that travels to their brain to tell it that it is a male brain. If that testosterone does not arrive, by default the brain is female.
IMPORTANTLY, which this may determine sexuality in animals, humans are more complicated, and this does not determine their sexuality, only their gender identity.
In the 1960s and again in the 1980s, researchers tried both chemically inhibiting this testosterone, or providing it when there was none, in animal testing. The result was male animals that thought they were female and vice versa. They even tried limiting it to just one hemisphere of the brain, ending up with animals that exhibited both male and female gender behavior.
The great concern is that there are many testosterone blocking chemicals in our environment, such as plant estrogen sprayed on crops to increase yields. While a feared explosion in gender androgyny has not taken place, there has been some degree of gender confusion among some children.
So what do you do with a male child whose brain tells him that he is a female? He likes what girl children like and does not like what boy children like, nor can he be trained to.
This is further complicated by parents that try to force either gender identification, or gender neutrality, on their children. Periodically some parents try to do this and it does not work.
To start with, such children need psychological examination to discover if they have inherent gender misidentification (on rare occasions caused by a dangerous underlying medical condition, such as a cancer); or if they have just been sociologically “programmed” by their parents to misidentify their gender.
In either case, it is a serious problem. For many such people it is so severe that they are willing to be sterilized to get gender reassignment surgery.
Ironically, once again, this does not determine sexuality, because even if a male whose brain is female gets gender reassignment surgery and looks like a woman, they may still be sexually attracted to women.
These are not happy people.
That is about the size of it
I call BS. I was a first-grader once, and I've known an awful lot of first-graders. Not a one of them has been sexually confused, gender-bent or even curious. With one or two sad exceptions all of them have been blissfully unaware of sexuality and pursue their overriding interest in toys, games and general childish mayhem with a refreshingly untainted singlemindedness. A transgendered first-grader is nothing less than a horrid case of child abuse perpetrated upont he child by an adult sexually deviant.
In a responsible society, someone would pay dearly for doing this to a child.
I do too.
If i believed in lynch mobs, which i don,t i would most likely be the first to say lynch the s.o.b.s, the parents or rather the ones who bred this poor child.
Are these parents psycho-parents or what? Isn’t “parenting” supposed to involve using good judgement in raising your child? I bet this confused kid will kill himself in his teens (and maybe kill them). When that happens these psycho-parents will blame insensitive society rather than their crazy “parenting”. Poor kid.
Amen to that! Homeschool your children; it is the best alternative to a completely Progressive/Liberal Indoctrination.
This little boy is being sacrificed to further their twisted agenda. No mention of who the parents really are. Probably two lesbian activists but thats just a guess.
This is the outcome of “spectrum” sexuality. A girl is a tomboy - they don’t assume it’s a phase or even a personality but that she is a budding lesbian or “actually a boy”. A feminine boy is not seen as shy or introverted but “gay” or even “transgendered”.
Make that 14 year olds and senior citizens.
Romans 1:24 "Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another."
Is this what we want for our Children?
Oh yeah, liberal "logic" all right. It is all the fault of the school.
No, any stigma, the inevitable teasing, beatings, etc. that this kid faces are pretty much because he/she/it is acting like a freak. Young kids love freaks, love classmates that stick out. It gives them someone to make fun of, thus affirming their own place in the norm.
Right, wrong or otherwise that will happen to/around this kid his/her/its entire life. That is not the fault of the schools, not the fault of the other kids, it is 100% on the kid and his/her/its "parents" for the choices they've made. Trying to tell others to stop it, don't do that, only adds spice to the game and makes it worse.
Mommy wanted a girl..... Mommy will have a girl even if she has to cut his manhood off to get one.... Sick liberal parents...
“I cant wait until the trend becomes something like asian kids that demand that they were actually born latino!”
Even better - I am wealthy but demand I be recognized as poor!
