The school district, about 15 miles south of Colorado Springs, Colo., also showed "a lack of understanding of the complexity of transgender issues" by referring to Coy as a male or using quotes around "her" throughout the litigation, Chavez wrote. The school district could not be reached for comment on the ruling Sunday. Coy was born a male, but began at an early age to identify as a girl through toys and dress and started calling herself a girl between the ages of 4 and 6, according to the summary of the division's ruling.
