Your Kid Ain’t a Girl

A 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.

The filing stems from a decision announced last December by officials at Fountain-Fort Carson School District that Coy Mathis could no longer use the girls’ bathroom at Eagleside Elementary.

Mother Kathryn Mathis said she and her husband were shocked.

“We were very confused because everything was going so well, and they had been so accepting, and all of a sudden it changed and it was very confusing and very upsetting because we knew that, by doing that, she was going to go back to being unhappy,” she told CNN. “It was going to set her up for a lot of bad things.”

Coy was born with male sex organs but has identified as female since she could express herself, her mother said. The child had attended classes during her kindergarten year with no problems and no complaints from anyone at the school, Mathis told reporters at the Colorado Capitol in Denver, where she was flanked by her husband, Jeremy, and four other children.
Wearing a girl’s winter coat, Coy stood behind her mother.

Afraid bullies would make fun of her daughter, Kathryn Mathis said she pulled Coy out of school during winter break.

“In the end, we just want what is the best for Coy,” Mathis said about the complaint. “We want her to be able to go back to school and be treated equally without discrimination and harassment.”

    Winter Break…I see part of the problem right here.

    Remember the good old days when the rule of thumb was so easy? If you had a dick you used the Boys Bathroom, end of discussion.
    Welcome to the Bizarro World. Sad, actually, because if nothing is abnormal then people needing serious mental illness treatment never get it.

    Ad Abraham Lincoln said, calling a dog’s tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg. Calling a little boy a girl doesn’t make him a girl. This “family” better save their money for years and years of therapy because this little boy is going to need lots of it. Or better yet, why doesn’t social services remove him now and put him a home with normal parents?

    And one last thing…the last line of this lady’s diatribe is the real kicker: “we just want people to realize that you can LOVE someone for being different.”

    The term “love” is truly lost to this sector of humanity. They only “love” those who agree and sympathize with their distorted view of reality. Their love is certainly not founded in basic principles, or in the sense of the Golden Rule, but seeks to bend other’s lives around their desires. I’d say manipulation and social slavery is a better term.

    Me standing up for moral principle and the protection of my daughter from the ever evolving social/moral tailspin of American society is not hate.

    I have said this previously and it is my go to response, xx and xy end of. The parents can have “pretend time” all they want at home but as with the lefties argument about religion keep that shit out of school. I use their logic and simply ask them to prove the child’s gender via chromosome assignment.

    Click on the ‘cnn’ link at the top to see a picture of this little thing. It wasn’t confused until its parents taught it to be confused. Liberal child abuse. In a moral world, the children would be taken away and the parents sterilized and set in stocks.

    Used to be parents would force left handed kids to be right handed, now we accept left handed kids just like right handed kids.

    Maybe some day we can accept cross-gendered kids just as well as straight-gendered kids.

    Oh, wait, I must have been channeling a hippie left wing wacko. Sorry.

    A Real President: “All federal funding will stop for any state that allows any male, proven so by his chromosomes, to use female facilities, or allows a female, proven by her chromosomes, to use male facilities.”

    I posted a story about this in the Bullpen yesterday. These parents thought their 18-month-old boy, who couldn’t express that he needed to poop, could express that he wanted to be a girl? Even if the boy was taken from the home today and placed in a healthy environment, he would probably never get over what those idiots did to him. God help him.

    The bottom line is this child is a boy, confused by parents who obviously wanted a girl and treated him a such from an early age. The child is not “transgender” because he has not had a “sex change” (sic). In the absence of protective services removing this child, who is clearly abused, why don’t we just impose regulations that all public facilities have three bathrooms: “Born Anatomically Male,” “Born Anatomically Female” and “Raised In a Liberal Household”?

    My 5 year old daughter likes to dress up and be a princess. Fine and well, play away kid. But that crap stops when you step outta the house and go to school because you’re a middle class southwestern girl and I don’t expect real Americans to bow to royalty, real or imagined.

    Can you fathom putting this logic to work elsewhere? Hey my boy wants to be a horse today. I fully expect the school to provide oats and hay in the cafeteria and let him defecate on the floor.

    Mom already bought me a bra and a box of Tampons. I don’t know why but I think it’s to make a sling shot and rockets to shoot at squirrels and frogs. Don’t tell my mom that I enjoy touching my wee-wee now that I’ve discovered it. She will take that away from me along with my boyhood.
