Lesbians Love Lars...
In Colorado, a family is causing a stir because their SIX-YEAR-OLD supposedly transgender child, who was born a boy but identifies as a girl, was told by the school that the child attends that the child would no longer be able to use the girls restroom.
Here's a great breakdown from the Daily Mail:
A six-year-old transgender child is fighting
alongside her parents for the right to be recognized as a girl at school. Coy
Mathis, who was born male but has identified as female since the age of four,
was barred from using the girls'
restroom at Eagleside Elementary
School in Fountain, Colorado in
Prior to the complaint, the first-grader, who dresses as a girl and
is recognized as female on her passport and state-issued ID, had experienced no
issue using the girls' bathrooms. 'She would use the girl's restrooms, she
would be called a girl, she would go in the girl's lines,' Mrs Mathis told host
Katie Couric. But a year after making the transition at school, the
Fountain-Fort Carson School District informed Coy's parents that she would be
barred from using the girl's restrooms after the winter break.
the chain of events, Mr Mathis said: 'It came out the Coy was no longer going
to be able to use the girl's restroom and they were going to require her to be
using the boy's room or the staff bathroom or the bathroom for the sick
children. 'We didn't know why... we had no idea where this was coming from.'
After receiving the news, the couple took all of their children out of Eagleside Elementary School and filed
a complaint with the state's civil rights division.
Michael Silverman of the Transgender Legal Defense &
Education Fund, who is representing the Mathis family said: 'By forcing Coy to use a different
bathroom than all the other girls, Coy’s school is targeting her for stigma,

genitals develop along with the rest of his body, at least some parents and
students are likely to become uncomfortable with his continued use of the
girls' restroom,' he added. The Mathis' case is the first to challenge
restrictions on a transgender person’s bathroom use under Colorado’s anti-discrimination
I have a very hard time believing that a six-year-old has the ability to decide that they identify themselves as being of a different gender, and I think the school is within its rights to not subject the students of this school to something that could make them uncomfortable.
I took a number of calls today on the subject, but my favorite was from a caller named Leslie. She's a proud lesbian who actually agrees with my stance on this. Take a listen to her call and see if you agree. Even in liberal Portland, where many in the homosexual community look to attack and bully anyone who disagrees with them, there are many gays who can look at things objectively.
