Parents of transgender first-grader file discrimination complaint

There are 93 comments on the www.cnn.com story from Feb 27, 2013, titled Parents of transgender first-grader file discrimination complaint. In it, www.cnn.com reports that:

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.

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

Most of the people on Topix and other threads are trolls. It's a numbers game where Topix shows how many hits it has.

Balance that with declining subscribership to the publications TOPIX is designed to serve.

Want a higher caliber debate with a better audience, something will have to be sacrificed in the short term.

Otherwise, TOPIX is just a sick website.

I think it might be better if everyone had to register, I don't think there would be so many 'hit and run' comments.

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)
This post probably deserves a "lemon" more than yours or anyone one else's. However the point you make is to helpful to ever be considered "off topic".

(and don't blame me for any coffee damage this time)

Bigger grin.

Right; you're a sad ass.
Your response to "NOiQ" is brilliant helpful and of course I agree with it. But I should have started with a Big Red Heart.

Sorry, you'll have to find someone else to perform your sexual fantasies in front of you.
We all know you like live porn, but maybe you should try a few porn sites with recorded scenes.
I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for there, because you won't find it here.

Again, keep your sexual fantasies to yourself, and don't act on them.

You really can't come up with anything more, can you? You've already trolled with that "question" (if you can even call it trolling, for you are horrible at it) and you've done so at least 5 times.

Why don't we just say it's the pope going to hell after having molested all the boys within his reach.
