Transgender Girl's Parents Lobby for Her Right to Use the Bathroom
As someone who thinks the government shouldn't be in the business of deciding which adults can marry, I'm curious, am I the only one that thinks that maybe there's something wrong with this situation? Should my 6 year old Grandaughter have to use the same bathroom as a 6 year old boy, that may think he's a girl, or perhaps his parents want him to?
The parents of a 6-year-old transgender girl who has been banned from using the girls’ bathroom at her Fountain, Colorado public school have filed a formal discrimination complaint with the aid of a lawyer—and are using the opportunity to speak out publicly in support of their child.
“The more you talk about something, the more awareness and acceptance there is,” Kathryn Mathis, mother of first grader Coy, who was born a boy, told Yahoo! Shine. “We’re really just trying to make it known what the school has done and make them accountable.”
The family has filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division. It will be investigated, and if either party is unhappy with the outcome, the next step would be a lawsuit.
Kathryn and Jeremy, a full-time student and disabled veteran, have four other children, including a set of triplets, one of which is Coy. Kathryn explained on "Katie" that Coy, a Girl Scout who loves pink, began gravitating toward girls’ toys and clothes by 18 months. Gender eventually turned into a bigger issue when Coy asked, at age 4, “When are we going to go to the doctor to get me fixed so I can be a girl?” A psychologist confirmed then that Coy was indeed transgender, at which point, noted Jeremy, “We really needed to let Coy be who she was.”
Or maybe they wanted an interesting one that would make them popular with their progressive friends.
that's a pretty far-fetched idea, even from a code monkey.
do you know they have progressive friends? do you know those friends wouldn't be happy with having a gay/lesbian child? do you think the parents are that airheaded that all of their decisions are based upon what their friends think?
I don't know the answer to these questions which is why I'm not making any assumption about them.
