6-Year-Old Boy Wins Right to Use Girl's Bathroom
CHARISMA NEWS ^ | JULY 15, 2013 | THE CHRISTIAN INSTITUTE

Posted on 07/15/2013 5:14:27 PM PDT by onyx

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 son’s 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 region’s 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 State’s 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."

Considering the age, I'd say that was PREvert.

I would love to know more about this poor kid's parents.

I'd be willing to wager they are a same sex couple themselves who adopted this kid for just this kind of action.

Right, a six year old boy thinks he is a girl and Mom and Dad support this idiocy. The parents should be flogged.

If a female he/she “identifies” as a male marries a male he/she who “identifies” as a female would a male child have a mother who identifies as a father and a father who identifies as a mother? Then if the kid is a he/she is it the son who identifies as a daughter of the mother who identifies as a father. And... they have a female kid who blah blah blah

So when there is a father daughter event at school, who goes?

Coy Mathis has boy plumbing but mommy and daddy are letting him pretend he's got girl plumbing. Mommy and daddy should be locked up in a rubber room in the state hospital in Pueblo.

"Right, a six year old boy thinks he is a girl and Mom and Dad support this idiocy. The parents should be flogged"

I cannot believe that this is getting all kinds of praise and back patting and stroking by the media.

This boy is SIX!

When I was 6, I thought I was Speed Racer. Since Speed wore racing gloves, I wore mine all the time during class.

The teacher said: (boop), it's time to take the gloves off.

NO! I'm Speed Racer.

Yes, (boop) and you can pretend later. Now it's time for our reading lesson. Interestingly BECAUSE I was six, I had forgotten all about it by the next day.

These parents are absolute POS's>

If their boy said he was Superman, would they insist that he wear a cape all day, or that he jump off the school's roof?

After all, he's "superman", and cannot under any circumstances whatsoever be disavowed of such notion.

In fact, such courageous parents, letting their son jump off buildings, because he's "superman".

I would put my kid in a “private” school run by people who separate the “privates”.

Can someone please explain to me how a 6 year old is mature enough to know that he’d be happier as a girl????

This is so messed up on so many levels. His parents should be arrested for abuse.

I don’t see how they can restrict any person from using either gender bathroom, or playing in either gender sport. It would clearly be discrimination based on sexual preference if they did. Haw no one floated a test case?

Indeed! I don't know how parents can mess up a kid that much in so few years, but evidently they have an agenda.

The state of CO has gone certifiably insane. I once had hopes if retiring there on some acreage in Teller County, but when the state government went gaga over restricting gun rights and generally turning CO into a vassal state of California, I sold that property fairly quickly. I am now completely severed from CO, thank God....

I don’t believe any child that age can really be confused about their sexual idenity. They probably heard about it and are trying to be cute/attract attention. Stupid parents jump
on this and encourage the child instead of waiting for it to blow over- thus setting him on a path to destroy his life.
