Parents of transgender first-grader file discrimination complaint

Feb 27, 2013 | Posted by: DNF | Full story: www.cnn.com

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.

Another dead thread.(sigh)

This stuff is exactly why TOPIX can't market itself to the better publications.

What newspaper editor in their right mind wants THIS crap as their comments section?

If FOX is any indicator, this is about the level of the average American.

So you think hot is cold and cold is hot...you are more delusional than we all originally—wait, no. You're just as delusional as we all thought.

Such a sad little man...sitting around all day, trying to insult people that are immune to your insults (they are so boring), and spending all your time on gay forums.

Why is it that you spend so much time on gay forums? Oh, right, I forgot; you're projecting.

So, feed the trolls lemons and nothing else. NOTHING.

Even feed lemons to friends who go off-topic.

If off-topic trash goes on fgor more than a couple of pages, leave the thread and don't look back.

(ex. this post deserves lemons)

Don't even know what you're talking about. I can't insult you FAGG@TS by telling you what you already know you do. Also this isn't a gay forum, this is a sad A$$ forum. Stupid fk.
If it's a sad ass forum, why are you here?
Right; you're a sad ass.

I will try, but It's hard to ignore hate speech and ignorance. Someone has got to be willing to fight back and not stand silent while these trolls dehumanize and spread misinformation.

It took me a while, but I have come to the same conclusion. No more responses from me to the trolls. Hopefully, they will become bored if we don't react to them, and go away.

If they are permitted to derail intelligent, civilized discussion then they've already won.

The only problem with your approach is that nothing will happen because they will just go away.
