Transgendered 1st grader wins the right to use girls restroom

Posted: Updated:

DENVER, CO (CNN) - 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.

The state's rights division decided keeping the ban in place, quote, "creates an environment that is objectively and subjectively hostile, intimidating or offensive."
