The parents of a transgender girl rejected a central argument Thursday from the school that won't allow their child to use the girl's restroom.
"They're punishing a 6-year-old for something that hasn't happened and may not happen," said Kathryn Mathis, mother of 6-year-old Coy Mathis, who was born with a boy's body but identifies as a girl. Â Mathis and her husband Jeremy, sitting alongside their daughter, spoke with CNN's "Starting Point."
The Colorado school, in a December letter to the parents, said that "as Coy grows older and his male 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."
A legal fund has field suit on the family's behalf, putting Colorado's anti-discrimination law to a new test.FULL STORY
