Transgender Girl's Parents Lobby for Her Right to Use the Bathroom

Elmer 25,554 February 28, 2013 at 08:54 AM
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?

Quote :
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."

so you'd be OK with all male chaperons then? After all, being attracted to women and schoolage girls are two different things.
Confused

I'm saying sexuality really doesn't have (shouldn't have) any bearing on comfort with the chaperone. We don't usually have male chaperones with female students for reasons besides the fact that most men like to sleep with women.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

I don't care what liberal psychologist organizations put out, I will NEVER accept that it's "normal" to think you're the opposite sex. Period.
