Numerous stories have been reported of children experiencing a disconnect with their sex. According to experts, transgender children experience a detachment from their anatomy, gender, and the behavior roles and activities stereotypical to that gender. Families of transgender children are calling for equality. Jeff Graham discusses the Colorado Division of Civil Rights ruling to allow transgender children to use the bathroom of the sex they identify with.
