On Wednesday, October 16, 2019, a number of expert witnesses and healthcare professionals testified in court about James Younger’s transgenderism case, where Younger’s mother, Anne Georgulas, wants her seven-year-old son to “transition” into a girl without his father’s consent.
Dr. Benjamin Albritton laid out his testimony, which was followed by Diane Zilca of Dallas County Family Services; Rebekka Ouer, James’ counselor from Dallas Rainbow Therapy; Dr. Abel Tomatis, James’ “trauma therapist”; Jasmine Jackson, a Child Protective Services investigator; and lastly, Dr. Daniel Schumer, a University of Michigan pediatric endocrinologist from the University of Michigan.
Most of the testimonies alluded to the “fluidity” of James’ gender “presentation,” and the positive long-term impact of James’ identification with his biological sex.
Logan Odeneal, the attorney for James’ dad Jeffery Younger, and the amicus attorney honed in on the criteria for diagnosing gender “dysphoria” and the actual definition of gender. Each professional who discussed the concept of gender provide a nuanced take on the matter and preceded their statements with, “I think gender is…”
Ouer told the court that “Gender is in the brain…It’s not that you want to be [a gender], it’s that you are.”
“Gender is more socially constructed,” Dr. Tomatis asserted. “It is someone’s innate sense of oneself as masculine or feminine.”
“Gender is an internal sense of oneself as a boy or girl, man or woman, or any gender in between….it’s a social construct,” Dr. Schumer claimed. “Everyone is born without a gender identity.”
Gender is the main focus of this case and Georgulas, who is a pediatrician, is trying to convince the court that she merits being named Sole Managing Conservator for James and his twin, Jude. On the other hand, Jeff Younger is fighting to keep Georgulas from making sensitive decisions for the boys, like initiating a gender “transition” for James.
Younger’s attorney and the amicus attorney focused on James’ diagnosis of gender “dysphoria” and the clear threat of a medical “transition.”
While questioning Dr. Albritton, Dr. Tomatis, and Dr. Schumer, Younger’s attorney raised the point that James does not meet any of the criteria to be diagnosed with gender dysphoria. For example, James isn’t distressed and Dr. Albritton admitted that the boys are not scared of their father. Other witnesses made opposing claims, but Dr. Albritton spent the most time with the boys and the family of all the expert witnesses who testified.
Albritton highlighted in his psychological evaluation that “Neither child appears to be depressed, anxious or aggressive …He [James] gave no indications of other significant psychological difficulties.”
In Dr. Tomatis’s testimony, he found no clinical symptoms of distress during his interactions with James.
Ouer argues that the lack of distress that James displays is because of the fact that he is allegedly “affirmed” as a girl according to his mother and at school.
Odeneal pointed to medical records from James’ pediatrician which suggests that James head to a medical transition clinic by the time he is eight or nine. It stated, “Will plan to have a psychological evaluation at GENECIS when closer to 8-9 years old to consider hormone suppression.”
Dr. Schumer, a specialist in medical “transitions,” contended that puberty blockers not be used until a child reaches Tanner State 2 of puberty. He also informed the court that “average start of puberty in someone who is a male is eleven and a half.”
Odeneal presented the jury a referral letter from Ouer to Children’s Medical Hospital for the GENECIS clinic. The GENECIS clinic is responsible for completing gender evaluations facilitating medical “transitions,” which includes providing children puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.
The letter read:
This is a letter of recommendation that my client, James Younger, aka Luna, begin the process of becoming a patient of the GENECIS clinic so that she [sic] can receive a full psychological assessment for gender dysphoria and potentially take hormone blockers.
The expert witnesses and the state agency representatives all admitted that James does not identify with one gender.
Dr. Albritton reminded the court that,“There is still some fluidity in his [James’] thinking.”
Ms. Zilca, a representative from Dallas County Family Services, called James by “Luna” the entire time. She told the court, “She [James] does not identify with only one gender.”
Ouer, James’ counselor, who is a “LGBT community” specialist, told the court that gender fluidity has different meanings for different people. She also maintains that James may not be transgender despite diagnosing him with gender dysphoria given that there is some fluidity in his expression.
Ouer and the other experts present insisted on calling James “Luna” and letting the seven-year-old boy determine any changes.
Even in a red state like Texas, the forces of political correctness do not rest.
The desire to change gender identity is one front that the Left is engaging in to socially engineer society into accepting its culturally radical vision.

Burger King changed its Facebook and Twitter logos and Facebook cover photo in order to align with its rainbow-themed campaign. French fry and sandwich boxes were also changed for this specific promotional campaign.
“Let’s celebrate love, because we are all the same inside,” the chain announced on one of its tweets.
The company had a teaser for customers. If they purchased a combo meal, they would receive a Pride crown and “a special surprise.”

America’s political correctness agenda seems to be one of its most pernicious exports.
Once champions of traditional American values, corporations have now bought into cultural leftist hobby horses hook, line, and sinker.
