Colorado School Bans Transgendered 7 Year Old

 
(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, born with male sex organs but a child 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.

  hlymnky   I'm having a hard time figuring out what's right or wrong in this situation. The biggest question I have is why did the parents allow their 7 year old boy to live as a girl? What happens when this "girl"

  jenc   I am saying that I do not feel that a 7 year old is mentally mature enough to make a life-altering decision like changing his sex. When he is ole enough to understand the pros and cons of his decision

  jenc   This is an easy answer....Does the child have a penis? Yes. Then she is a he! I wouldn't want my little daughter watching a boy dressed as a girl urinating. If the child is "transgendered" and

  pundit   The school is putting the interest of the many over the interests of the one. What they don't realize is that they send a message to the students that this girl is not allowed to be a girl and for that

  jenc   what does her birth certificate classify her as? That is how the school identifies a child's sexual origin.  
The school should just let the kid use the restroom in the nurse's office. Problem

maro9219   The school did this more than likely to quell angry parents. While i have to agree seven year old children may not truly understand themselves, I still believe this child is doing no harm to her classmates

  Amiche   What reason does the school give for changing their policy midstream? She was allowed to use the girls room? Now she isn't? She was transgender the first half of the year.
