Default James Younger, 7, to have Texas judge decide fate amid parents' gender transition bat

Quote:
A Texas dad’s desperate battle to keep his 7-year-old child from undergoing a gender transition championed by the biological male’s mother has captured the attention of conservatives nationwide – including the Lone Star State’s governor, who announced a review of the case by top officials, even as all involved await a pivotal court ruling Thursday that could alter the youngster’s life forever.

Jeff Younger petitioned the court earlier this month for sole custody of his twins, James and Jude, in an effort to prevent their mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, from allowing James to begin hormone replacement therapy.

According to Georgulas, who works as a pediatrician, James is transgender, identifies as a girl, likes to wear dresses and goes by the name “Luna.” Younger believes the opposite, however, and is arguing James is a happy boy and a “social transition” or “medical transition” would not be in his best interest, The Texan reported.

James’ mom, who is divorced from Jeff Younger, initially filed a petition for joint conservatorship which required Younger to affirm the child's identity by using the name “Luna,” something recommended by James' therapists. In response, Younger filed for sole custody. But on Monday, a jury returned a verdict in favor of Georgulas.

Although a judge will have the final say over the custody battle Thursday afternoon, Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, waded into the controversy Wednesday night as the case began making ripples nationwide, saying the state will be reviewing the case.

“FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services,” Abbott tweeted.

A judge’s decision in favor of Georgulas could allow her to move forward with plans to potentially give James puberty blockers after she received a letter of recommendation from Dallas Rainbow Therapy, urging James to “receive a full psychological assessment for gender dysphoria and potentially take hormone blockers,” the Washington Examiner reported.
Not only should the judge grant the father full custody and deny the mother any unsupervised visitation, she should have her medical license revoked.
What kind of insanity leads you to believe that giving a child drugs to stop them from developing is a good idea?

The same insanity that says there are virtually unlimited genders, that men can be women and women can be men, and that if we just give the government complete control of our lives and our economy, we will be living in a Utopia. You know, left wing thinking.
