PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – A Colorado first-grader has won her right to use the girls’ restroom at school. The Colorado Rights Division has sided with Eagleside Elementary student Coy Mathis allowing this transgender girl access to her appropriate restroom.
Mathis was born a boy, but her parents explain that she has always identified as a girl. Mother Kathryn Mathis comments how Coy always liked the color pink and has expressed interest in being “fixed” by a doctor. Coy’s passport and state-issued identification acknowledge her as a female.
According to CNN, Mrs. Mathis was quoted in saying, “We’re extremely happy that she’s going to be treated equally and we thank the civil rights division for coming to this conclusion.”
