"Everyone on the panel expressed support for Mathis' position except for Dr. James Sears, co-host of the CBS show The Doctors. Sears, who is a pediatrician and television personality, warned that Mathis might walk around the girls' bathroom with her penis exposed, like "most boys" allegedly do at that age":
SEARS: I have three kids, a daughter and two boys, and as when my daughter was that age, I would have been very uncomfortable if there was a boy with a penis walking around their bathroom. And you say that the stalls are private. You know, at that age, most boys especially will use the bathroom then leave their pants down while they walk to the sink to wash their hands and then pull it up. So it's going to be very uncomfortable for the other girls seeing a penis in their bathroom.
JENNIFER HUTT: She's a girl.
SEARS: She has a penis, though.
Meet this individual who uses his position as a "doctor" to amplify vile transphobia on the show "CNN Doctors".

Pediatrician Dr. James Sears On CNN: Coy Mathis Will Walk Around The Girls Room With Her Penis Out, Like all Boys Do.
What a totally ignorant thing to say. Obviously this guy is such an expert in trans issues. If we use his logic, then we could say that all doctors on TV shows are intolerant, ignorant boobs, who will say anything for ratings.
I am a transwoman that lived my youth in the male role and used the "Boys" bathroom. Sorry Dr. Sears but I don't recall boys waking around the bathroom with their penises exposed. One thing I am very sure of, that you were not the pediatrician of my children with the complete lack of empathy and insight you seem to have on the socialization and developmental process of children. That you are willing to create a life of absolute stress and oppression for this little girl is unforgivable. You are everything that the transgender people dread in today's medicine.
