UNREAL: Jury Rules Against Texas Father Who Wants to Protect Son From Gender Transition
On October 21, 2019, a jury in Dallas, Texas ruled against Jeffrey Younger, the father who courageously protected his son, James, from going through a gender “transition.”
As a result of this ruling, James’ mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, is now able to continue the “transition” into “Luna” and has the power to subject him to puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.
The jury’s decision also means that Mr. Younger will likely be forced to recognize James as a girl, despite his religious and moral objections. To add insult to injury, he will also be forced to take a class on transgenderism.
11 of the 12 jurors decided to not grant Mr. Younger Sole Managing Conservatorship over his twin boys. Instead they voted for the current Joint Managing Conservatorship to be replaced with a Sole Managing Conservatorship, but Mr. Younger would not be that person. On Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. CST, Judge Jim Cooks will read her ruling on possession, child support, and Dr. Georgulas’ other requests.
Last week, Mr. Younger and Georgulas were in court fighting over custody and decision-making matters for James and his twin, Jude. Mr. Younger contends that his ex-wife is carrying out this “transition” against his son’s will.
Georgulas originally brought the lawsuit forward and was demanding that Mr. Younger’s possession schedule be changed to decrease overnight stays and impose supervision on all of his visits with the boy. Georgulas brought forward the original modification suit to court and did not ask for a jury trial. In a counter-petition, Mr. Younger requested a jury trial.
The jury then ruled on Mr. Younger’s specific request for Sole Managing Conservatorship and the judge ruled on all other aspects of the petition that Dr. Georgulas brought forward. Georgulas requested that Jeff be prohibited from calling his son James — his birth and legal name — and that he be barred from having James around people who do not consider James a “girl.”
On the other hand, Mr. Younger was requesting that he receive Sole Managing Conservatorship of his sons, which would give him complete authority over medical, psychological, and other sensitive decision-making matters dealing with his sons.
The jury ended up ruling that Dr. Georgulas should be Sole Managing Conservator, not Mr. Younger.
Mr. Younger has every reason to be worried about Dr. Georgulas subjecting their son to a “lifetime of misery.”
LifeSite News, highlights the many problems transgender individuals face:
Transgender-identifying individuals, even when encouraged in their confusion, suffer from more psychological issues than the general population, have shorter lifespans, and are more likely to commit suicide.
LifeSite News also noted several findings from the Mayo Clinic on the potential side effects of feminizing cross-sex hormone therapy:
- A blood clot in a deep vein (deep vein thrombosis) or in a lung (pulmonary embolism)
- High triglycerides, a type of fat (lipid) in your blood
- Weight gain
- Elevated liver function tests
- Decreased libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- High potassium (hyperkalemia)
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cardiovascular disease, when at least two other cardiovascular risk factors are present
- Excessive prolactin in the blood (hyperprolactinemia) or a condition in which a noncancerous tumor (adenoma) of the pituitary gland in the brain overproduces the hormone prolactin (prolactinoma)
Last Friday, protestors demanded that Texas lawmakers pass legislation criminalizing the use of a medical transition for an individual under the age of 18. They assert that children cannot comprehend the ever-lasting consequences of these biological decisions and parents don’t have the right to make these decisions for their children.
This case demonstrates how relentless the radical Left is with their activism. Dallas, once a stronghold for the GOP, has changed politically thanks to demographic changes, which the Left is completely capitalizing on.
This case will be the first of many the Left will exploit to move radicalism forward.
