This is a re-post. This case was, and still is, very disturbing.
It is no surprise that a boy, born among two others girls as triplets, would want to be more like a girl, or would gravitate to wanting to be part of the group, to blend in, to feel like he belongs with his triplet siblings. This is something very simple to correct in his mind, but it does not mean he wants to grow to have sex with boys, or to have a sex-change operation in the future!
This is a case of child abuse.
DENVER — “Colorado officials say a suburban Colorado Springs school district discriminated against a 6-year-old transgender girl by preventing her from using the girls’ bathroom, in what advocates described as the first such ruling in the next frontier in civil rights.
The family had been told that their first-grader, who was born a boy, could not use the girl’s bathroom and would have to use the restroom in the nurse’s office or the teachers’ lounge.
Coy Mathis’s family raised the issue after school officials at Eagleside Elementary in Fountain said the first-grader could use restrooms in either the teachers’ lounge or in the nurse’s office, but not the girls’ bathroom. Coy’s parents feared she would be stigmatized and bullied.
On Monday, the Mathis family and its lawyers celebrated the ruling on the steps of the state capitol. Coy, dressed in a glittering tank top, jeans and pink canvas sneakers, ran around a towering blue spruce tree as her mother spoke to reporters.
“Her future will be better if we get to this place where this is nothing to be ashamed of,” Kathryn Mathis said, noting the family hadn’t sought a civil rights battle but was happy for the Colorado Division of Civil Rights’ ruling.
As the gay rights movement has won mounting legal and electoral victories in recent years, advocates hope the latest decision will lend momentum to the struggles of transgendered people.”
This is not “gay rights,” This is CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE.
“Coy was born a triplet with two sisters and identified as a girl before she began attending elementary school”
At 5 months, she took a pink blanket meant for her sister Lily. Later, she showed little interest in toy cars and boy clothes with pictures of sports, monsters and dinosaurs on them. She refused to leave the house if she had to wear boy clothes. After her parents accepted her identity, they said, Coy come out of her shell.
Coy was diagnosed with “gender identity disorder” – a designation the American Psychiatric Association removed last year from its list of mental ailments. The removal reflected the growing medical consensus that identification as another gender cannot be changed.”
“Coy was labeled male at birth, but has always known that she is a girl, which she has expressed since she was 18 months old. Since kindergarten, Coy had worn girls’ clothing to school. Her classmates and teachers at Eagleside Elementary School used female pronouns to refer to her, and she used the girls’ bathrooms, just like any other girl in her school. In mid-December 2012, the Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 informed Coy’s parents that Coy would be prevented from using the girls’ bathrooms after winter break. The District ordered Coy to use the boys’ bathroom, a staff bathroom, or the nurse’s bathroom.”

“This article is deeply disturbing to me. This is just completely ridiculous, and is undoubtedly child abuse. I cannot believe how there is a willing and conscious attempt to completely mess up this child’s sense of self.A four year old cannot be transgender, a four year old cannot be gay, a four year old cannot be confused about sexuality. It is so wrong that these people (the parents and “psychologist”) are doing this to this child.I can say from my own experience that this child is being led down a path that he is not choosing, and I will not be surprised if he grows up to be suicidal, physically ill, or generally depressed/mentally at dis-ease. Although my experience is not as severe as his, in terms of setting a child up for “confusion,” I can relate nonetheless. My heart goes out to this innocent. He does not deserve to have the ridiculous neuroses of his parents to be forced on him and influence his life so dramatically!One thing that bothers me more about this, is that the parents are probably being touted as “heros” by the ignorant masses who don’t know any better. These parents are “hip” and “cool” for being so progressive – allowing their child to express a female gender identity based on some (pardon my French) fucked up standard of what a baby who is “female” would do/say/touch. Now, all the hipster parents (like the ones showcased on “bad-ass mommies with tattoos” blogs) will flock to the idea of royally messing up their child to prove that in some way they are so liberal, so progressive, so “WITH IT.” Pardon my passion here, but I am just disgusted beyond politeness.I really hope that someone investigates this further and throws the adults in charge in jail, or at least tries to open up their eyes…I just don’t know how else this poor child could be protected.Apparently this all started because the boy picked up a pink blanket. Even in the most liberal of circles (who would want to defy gender norms and roles), this should mean nothing. Sure, get your son a pink blanket. Get your son a doll if he wants one. But then convince society that these things are because he is actually FEMALE? That attitude does more harm than good, even to those who want to break down gender stereotypes…it’s just all so appalling to me.”
My notes: The parents and therapist need to be held accountable in this case. This is child sexual abuse because of the sexual nature of “transgender.”
Infants, and toddlers do not know who they truly are, nor any idea of sex. Nor does this boy have any idea of what has been done to him.
