Parents of transgender first-grader file discrimination complaint

Feb 27, 2013 Full story: www.cnn.com 93

A prominent transgender rights group announced Wednesday that it has filed a discrimination complaint in Colorado on behalf of a first-grader who was born a boy but identifies as a girl.

Last December, school officials at Fountain-Fort Carson School District told Coy Mathis' parents that their child could no longer use the girls' bathroom at Eagleside Elementary. That shocked her parents, said her mother, Kathryn Mathis.

Coy was born with male sex organs but has, since she could express herself, identified as female. The child had gotten through kindergarten with no problems and no complaints from anyone at the school, Mathis said. Kathryn Mathis explained that she pulled Coy out of school when the child was on winter break, well after school officials had called her to tell her about the bathroom ban.

The mother feared that bullies at the school would make fun of her daughter if she allowed Coy to go back to class. "In the end we just want what is the best for Coy," Mathis said, explaining why the complaint was filed. "We want her to be able to go back to school and be treated equally without discrimination and harassment." Attorney Michael Silverman of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, which is representing Coy, said the complaint is intended to have an impact beyond a single family or school.

I doubt your parents would be proud, that is, if you even knew who they were.

Buttercup, you're projecting, again. I'm sorry that your parents are embarrassed by you, but you've given them no choice. They didn't raise you to grow up to be an immature, ignorant assh*le, you chose that.

The school is being ridiculous. What possible harm can ther be from letting this young person use the same bathroom as the girls ?! To even suggest there is any hrm is ridiculous.

And for many years, The City Of New York has had a law that specificallly says that any person may use any bathroom, regardless of how they are marked. And how many complaints do you ever hear about that ?

(Alright, I did hear one amusing one. LOL)

The first is that he stole his post, it's already been on this site dozens of times and was originally stolen from a WND article. The second, the FBI doesn't keep separate statistics on the sexual abuse of children, they are lumped in with "Offenses against the family and children".
I guess I should have known better. I'll try to remember that. Come to think of it, I do recall a similar post where I found the same exact wording on a WND site. Thanks.

Sorry can't locate it as of now but this might work.
A recent study in Demography estimated the number of exclusive male homosexuals in the general population at 2.5 percent, and the number of exclusive lesbians at 1.4 percent. The study took into account three large data sets, including the all-encompassing U.S. Census.
Now consider a report from the Journal of Sex Research which noted that homosexual pedophiles commit about one-third of the total number of child sex offenses, even though they are outnumbered by heterosexuals 20 to one. Less than four percent of the population commits one-third of the offenses against children!
In The Gay Report, homosexual researchers report data showing that better than 7 out of 10 homosexuals surveyed had at some time had sex with boys 16 to 19.
Or consider a study in Archives of Sexual Behavior, which found that of 229 convicted child molesters surveyed,“85 percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.”
The evidence is clear. Homosexuals have an overwhelming propensity towards child molestation.

Sorry, but just finding a conservative website that may agree with you is not the same as backing up your unqualified endorsement of a supposed FBI finding. I'll wait to see if you can find the REAL source, alleged to be the FBI.

What's the matter 'raze'? Can't dispute the FACTS Rick pointed out about your bullshit FBI link and how they compile the statistics you claim you got from their website?

Funny thing is when Brenda and Luke first posted your hijacked trash, many people provided verifiable links that confirmed Rick's statements.

I hope your parents aren't saving for your college fund. You'd never pass orientation!

Yes facts are facts.

Fact is you admitted you posted a link that doesn't provide the info you claim you got from it.

Then you come up with a BLOG post that doesn't provide a link to the study you claim it has in an effort to prove your first claim was true!

Way to go Pinnochio!

Had it from a long time ago. Haven't clicked on the link forever. Actually, never clicked on it, cause I thought it took you where I was at, at the time. Doesn't matter anyway, you deny or lie anyway, no matter where the source came from.
I deny or lie about a quote YOU can't find? That's a good trick. How did I accomplish that, exactly?
