Well I read this article, I thought that it was a child with both male and female parts, but after reading more I realized that is was a male child after all, trying to play a role as a girl with parent consent
Well in my mind regardless of the choices of the child "gender" and the "wishes" of the very confused parents, the boy has a penis and as such he belong in the boys restroom no with the girls.
Sorry to say this but somebody needs to tell the child the difference between a penis and a vagina and why they are separated by gender restrooms
Like many have say, were society is heading this days? I have not problem with gender association but darn a child under 10? really give me a darn brake.

I agree with you 100%. If this child had a penis and a vagina, then I could understand the parents having an issue with the school. Since HE has a penis only, he belongs in the boys restroom.
The article said that the child has a passport and state issued ID saying that he is female. Isn't that a crime for the parents to lie on an application for these documents? The parents probably registered the child in school as a girl. They state in the interview that the school is forcing a little girl to use the boy's restroom. What are they thinking, because they raise their boy as a girl, and because the boy thinks he is a girl, that makes the child a girl?
If I went in to a public female restroom (not by accident), I would be arrested. If i told the police I was allowed in there because I think I'm a girl, that should make it OK-----NO it doesn't. These parents are screwed up in the head. If they want to treat their boy as a girl, fine, but he should not have a passport or state ID saying HE is a she, and he doesn't belong in the girls room. They need to think about the real girls that use that restroom that are sharing it with a boy.edit on 1-3-2013 by sloppypeter because: (no reason given)

I think it's disingenuous and a little intellectually dishonest to judge a family and a little girl, based on an article on CNN.
Which might I remind you does the best it can to create the most controversial material in order to generate viewership and therefore advertising revenue.
We aren't a part of these people's lives, or their child's.
We need to take a step back and perhaps agree that we have not enough information to start judging folk.
The child is 6 years old, not 8. The child was 4 years old when he began asking his mommy when he was going to go to the Dr and get a sex change. The only way the child could have known about a sex change at 4 years old is if the parents told him about it.
I also find it ironic that people can't vote, buy cigarettes or marry until they are 18, but some people in here seem to think it's OK for a 4 year old to proclaim they are transexual and ask for a sex change. It doesn't take much common sense to tell something is fishy here.

Did your parents neglect to raise you as if you had a brain?
