A six-year-old boy in the US state of Colorado has won the right to use the girls toilets at school because he is transsexual.
Meanwhile, in a similar case in Australia, a nine-year-old boy has also won the right to use the girls toilets.
And new laws in California mean transsexual students can choose to join either girls or boys sports teams at school.
In Colorado, the parents of six-year-old Coy Matthis took their sons school to a civil rights panel, claiming it was discrimination to disallow their son from using the bathroom of the gender with which he identifies.
In December 2012 school officials said Coy must use the boys toilets or the staff bathrooms.
The Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund assisted the Matthis case and welcomed the decision.
Executive Director Michael Silverman said the ruling sent out a clear message to schools that transgender students must be treated equally in schools.
In southeast Queensland Australia, a nine-year-old boy has been told by the regions Education department that he can use the girls toilets and join girls sports teams at his primary school.
His mother had planned to lodge a gender identity discrimination complaint after teachers said the child must use a unisex toilet when he came to school dressed as a girl at the start of the year.
Now Education Queensland North Coast regional director Colin Allen-Waters has said the student can use the female toilets and compete in girls sports events.
Politicians in California have passed a controversial Bill which would allow students to access bathrooms and changing rooms of the gender they have chosen.
The legislation, which must now be signed into law by the States Governor Jerry Brown, would also mean transgender students can choose a sports team of the gender with which they identify.
The proposals have come under fire from critics who say students may exploit the new law.
Mummy and Daddy must be so proud of their little pervert.
oh for pity’s sake
I would insist my daughter had a private restroom that a boy couldn’t enter.
Considering the age, I'd say that was PREvert.
I'd be willing to wager they are a same sex couple themselves who adopted this kid for just this kind of action.
Government has gone completely brainless.
WHAT!!!!!, 6 YEARS OLD BOY , who the hell are his parents or parent, they should be put away for child abuse the sick disgusting people.
Past the time to CLOSE PUBLIC SCHOOLS!
Those in Colorado get out as fast as possible...
Id want my granddaughters to win the right to use the female teachers’ and staff’s private toilets...
these people need to be put away and not let near kids ever again.
He;s 6 for crying out loud, 6 and now they are dressing him up as a girl, the poor kid has chance for a proper life due to immature selfish adults
LOL! You’re right. You have to wonder who told him that he was a transsexual.
I'm thinking along the same lines.
Right, a six year old boy thinks he is a girl and Mom and Dad support this idiocy. The parents should be flogged.
Trust me Jim when I see a couple on here saying no Govt for marriage and let anyone marry or this it drives me nuts and then we see the state of the west today .
Very sad to think friends, vets, etc have all given or risked their lives for this utter crap.
Prolly the mummy that still takes baths with him ....
