CNN – Just like she did during the first half of the school year, first-grader Coy Mathis wants to use the girls’ restroom at her Colorado elementary school. But school officials won’t let her. The reason? Coy is transgendered, a child born with male sex organs but who identifies herself as female. She dressed as a girl for most of last year. And her passport and state-issued identification recognize her as female. In December, the Fountain-Fort Carson School District informed Coy’s parents that Coy would be barred from using the girls’ restrooms at Eagleside Elementary in Fountain after winter break. She could instead use the boys’ bathroom, gender-neutral faculty bathrooms or the nurse’s bathroom. In making the decision, the district “took into account not only Coy but other students in the building, their parents, and the future impact a boy with male genitals using a girls’ bathroom would have as Coy grew older,” attorney W. Kelly Dude said. Coy’s parents see it differently. By forcing Coy to use a different bathroom, the school is “targeting her for stigma, bullying and harassment,” said Michael Silverman, one of Coy’s lawyers and the executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund. “Coy’s school has the opportunity to turn this around and teach Coy’s classmates a valuable lesson about friendship, respect and basic fairness.” On Wednesday, Coy’s parents will announce that they will file a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division.
Man, Coy has gotta be living the life. Only 6 years old and already dominating his parents. Little dude can barely read or spell, but he’s somehow convinced mom & dad to make him the prettiest girl in school because, at 6, he knows himself well enough to make such a decision on who he is. Has them going to battle so he can drop his tiny turds in the girl’s room because why the fuck not? We’re not talking about a case of his parents just being dismissive, like, “Yeah, OK you little fruitcake…you’re a girl, whatever…” and just waiting for shim to grow out of it. Coy’s got them buying shim purple fucking wigs, dresses & photoshoots. That’s bananas. I bet this kid’s got a Ferris wheel and has mom whipping up fresh homemade cupcakes for breakfast daily. He’ll never yell “I can wipe my own ass!” like Frankenstein in Big Daddy because he’ll never have to wipe his own ass. I could barely get my mom to buy Honey Nut Cheerios instead of regular every once in a while. You were a real bitch, ma.
