This week a Texas jury ruled against a father who is fighting to keep his son from being “transitioned” into a girl.

The case involves Jeffery Younger, his seven-year-old son, and a legal case with Younger’s ex-wife.

According to LifeSite News, jurors voted against making Younger the sole managing conservator over his son — meaning the role would go to his ex-wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, a pediatrician, who reportedly began insisting about four years ago that James was really a girl, and she calls him “Luna.”

Fortunately, despite the jury’s ruling, the judge in the case announced yesterday that Jeffrey Younger would get a say in his son’s gender “transition.”

To be clear, James is seven years old, and his father says that when the two of them are together, James identifies and behaves like a boy.

What we’re really talking about is whether or not a young child should be given puberty-blockers and hormone therapies and eventually subjected to sex-reassignment surgery — despite the objections of his father and character witnesses who have testified that they have never seen any reason to believe James identifies as a girl.

Advocates for children have said time and time again that encouraging kids to disagree with their biological sex is dangerous.

Individuals who disagree with their biological sex are 20 times more likely to commit suicide.

Puberty-blockers, hormone therapies, and sex-reassignment surgery carry dangerous risks and side-effects, like cancer, infections, gallbladder diseases, spikes in blood pressure, and more.

The American College of Pediatricians writes, “puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous.”

That’s why many pediatricians agree that treating children this way is nothing short of child abuse.
