I may not be up on the latest research, but I have a *little* difficulty accepting that a 6 year old boy comprehends transgender issues and “identifies” as a girl…so his parents are of course suing his school so “she” can use the little girls room
The parents of a transgender 6-year-old have filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division because Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain banned the first-grader from using the girls’ restroom.
The child, Coy Mathis, was born male but identifies as female. She had attended the school since December 2011 before being pulled out by her parents.
“This is significant for both Colorado and nationally,” said Michael Silverman, executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, who is representing the family. “For Colorado, it is the first test of the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act as related to access to bathrooms by transgender students.
I’m guessing Mom and Dad wanted a little girl.
They named their son “Coy” when he was born.
Speaking of Mom
“It’s important for us to talk about this, because a lot of people have been so afraid to be their true selves for so long,” Kathryn Mathis said. “They’ve known from very young children who they are but were afraid to tell. We want to help create a society where it’s OK to be who you are.”
No 6 year old, and precious few 30 year olds, know who their “true selves” are.
