A 6-year-old boy who believes he is a girl won the right to use the girls room at his school after his parents threatened to sue the Colorado school system for requiring him to use a separate bathroom.
Coy, who has identified as a girl since age 4, was pulled from the Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain, CO, and home schooled while the lawsuit wound its way through the courts.
He has not undergone a sex-change operation. Therefore, he is still physically a boy.
Coy's parents, Kathryn and Jeremy Mathis, were shocked that the school prohibited their child, who has boy's genitals, from using the girls' restroom.
"This automatically singles her out and stigmatizes her," Kathryn Mathis said. "It sets her up for future harassing and bullying, and creates an unsafe environment. The school has a wonderful opportunity to teach students that differences are OK, and we should embrace their differences, instead of teaching them to discriminate against someone who is a little different."
The mainstream media refuses to cover this story because it doesn't fit their agenda.

In a video uploaded to YouTube.com, hungry students faint from lack of energy after eating the 750-850 calories that Mrs. Obama's school lunches provide.
The children argue that the low calories are not enough to meet the physical needs of growing teenagers.
