A Dallas judge ruled Tuesday which the mother of an eight-year-old boy may have sole decision-producing power in pursuit of “transitioning” him to a girl named “Luna.”
As LifeSiteNews reported, Judge Mary Brown of Dallas County Court reversed the October ruling of another judge as well as granted the request of Dr. Anne Georgulas, a pediatrician who reportedly diagnosed her son James with “gender-dysphoria” when he was a young toddler.
As a result of the ruling, Georgulas, who supports James’s gender “transition,” will have sole control over This specific area of his life.
James continues to be at the center of a high-conflict custody battle between Georgulas as well as her ex-husband, Jeffrey Younger, who says his son gives no indication he wants to be a girl when he can be with him.
The case of James Younger went viral on Twitter last year with the hashtag #SaveJamesYounger.
In October 2019, Jeffrey Younger shared a video on social media of his son at three years of age telling his father, “Mommy tells me I’m a girl.”
A jury in Dallas decided against Younger’s attempt to prevent his ex-wife by starting their son on puberty blockers. A consensus of 11 of 12 jurors decided the joint managing conservatorship over James as well as his twin brother Jude should be replaced by sole management by Georgulas.
The battle between Younger as well as Georgulas intensified last year when James’s mother threatened Younger having a child abuse charge because he might not affirm their son can be a transgender child.
Georgulas petitioned to modify the parent-child relationship while referring to James as a “gender expansive or transgender child” who “by choice, right now goes by the name Luna.”
James’s mother reportedly sought to terminate Younger’s parental rights because James behaved as a boy when he was with his father. Georgulas also wanted Younger to pay for their son’s counseling having a therapist who might affirm his transgender identity as well as his transgender medical interventions.
The court prohibited Younger by dressing James as a boy or by sharing faith-based or biologically-based scientific teachings on sexuality, even though family friends who have observed James when he can be in his father’s care reportedly affirm he dresses as well as behaves as a boy by his own choosing.
James’s “transition therapist” reportedly continued to identify him as “Luna” as well as to place him on track for gender transition.
The Texan reported at the time which Younger as well as Georgulas were married in 2010 as well as decided to have children through in vitro fertilization (IVF).
“They requested male children through the IVF process which was successful, as well as their twin boys were born in 2012,” the Texan noted.
Georgulas revealed in testimony which the boys are actually not biologically related to her since she used an egg donor for the IVF procedure.
According to the report, Georgulas said James began to imitate female characters by the Disney film Frozen, asked for a girls’ toy at McDonald’s, as well as asked to wear dresses.
She also reportedly said she contacted the GENecis clinic at Children’s Hospital Center. She was then referred to Rebekka Ouer for counseling, who recommended a process of “affirmation” as well as suggested a “social transition” for James should begin with the young boy going to school dressed as a girl named “Luna.”
The battle reportedly escalated between the two parents when Younger learned Georgulas was “socially transitioning” James.
Judge Kim Cooks of Dallas County Court had granted both parents decision-producing authority inside the twins’ medical, psychological, as well as psychiatric care. Cooks said which, if the parents could not agree, a court-appointed parenting coordinator might make the final decision.
In addition, Cooks ordered Younger to attend family counseling with Georgulas as well as the boys in order to maintain his 50/50 custody arrangement.
LifeSiteNews also reported:
Judge Kim Cooks’ ruling found which Georgulas was overly affirming in instances when James supposedly showed a desire to be a girl, including taking him to LGBTQ parades, buying him dresses as well as fake hair, as well as enrolling him in kindergarten as a “girl” named “Luna.”
however Georgulas challenged Cooks’ ruling as well as ultimately had her removed by the case.
Dallas Morning News reported in December Cooks was removed because she shared a news story about the case on her official Facebook account. The report continued:
Another user originally posted the story with the caption, “Here’s the truth! READ the idea as well as THEN GO RUN TELL which!” In her post, Cooks said, “The Governor nor any legislature had any influence on the Court’s Decision.”
Georgulas’ attorneys argued which Cooks should recuse herself because the post called into question her impartiality.
Brown, who replaced Cooks on the case, granted Georgulas’s motions, without a hearing, for sole decision-producing authority as well as to have Younger pay for family counseling.
The “Save James” Facebook page, which links to a Christian crowdfunding site for Younger, states Brown’s order grants Georgulas the right to register James in school as “Luna.”
A post on the site says, “James as well as Jude did NOT have a victory in court today,” as well as adds:
Judge Mary Brown has condemned James as well as Jude to a life of therapy, confusion, as well as abuse without even having a hearing. There are no various other words for what has happened today.
She has forced James to live as “Luna” in a school surrounded by teachers as well as therapists who do not acknowledge which he has said multiple times to multiple people (without Jeff around) which he wants to be a boy as well as hates being forced to be a girl. She has forced Jude into a stressful existence of constant lies as well as misery as he watches his brother get destroyed before him without any desire for an end to This specific madness.
“Anne won This specific battle without even a hearing,” the post reads.
