Transgender First-Grader Wins Right to Use Girl’s Bathroom at School
The Colorado Rights Division granted Coy Mathis, a transgender first-grader, the right to use the girl’s bathroom.
Coy’s parents brought their child on Katie Couric’s show earlier this year. They don’t want their boy, who identifies as a girl, to be treated differently.
FOX 2 reported:
A transgendered first-grader who was born a boy but identifies as a girl has won the right to use the girls’ restroom at her Colorado school.
The Colorado Rights Division ruled in favor of Coy Mathis in her fight against the Fountain-Fort Carson School District.
Coy’s parents had taken her case to the commission after the district said she could no longer use the girls’ bathroom at Eagleside Elementary.
In issuing its decision, the state’s rights division said keeping the ban in place “creates an environment that is objectively and subjectively hostile, intimidating or offensive.”
Coy’s mother, Kathryn Mathis, said she’s thrilled that Coy can return to school and put this behind her.
