A Texas jury has ruled against Jeffrey Younger, the father who is trying to protect his seven-year-old son, James, from chemical castration by a gender transition. This means James mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, will be able to continue transitioning him into Luna, and now has full authority to start him on puberty blockers and eventually cross-sex hormones.
With a consensus of 11 of the 12 jurors, the jury decided not to grant Mr. Younger Sole Managing Conservatorship over his two twin boys, LifeSiteNews reported Monday. They voted that the current Joint Managing Conservatorship should be replaced by a Sole Managing Conservatorship, but that Mr. Younger should not be that person.
According to the LifeSiteNews, Georgulas has been granted authority to move forward with puberty blockers, which can cause chemical castration, and, potentially, hormones, if she so chooses.
According to reporting from The Texan, Georgulas lawyers Jessica Janicek and Laura Hayes said the mother does not plan on giving James hormone blockers at this time. However, no one has stated that she (Georgulas) would not be open to using them when James begins puberty, which would be around age 11 and a half for a boy, the report said.
Additionally, with the jurys decision, Mr. Younger will likely be forced to affirm his sons new gender identity: a girl named Luna. More
According to the Mayo Clinic the possible side effects of feminizing cross-sex hormone therapy are as follows:
- 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)
Children have no concept of the consequences of such a life-changing decision. Shame on his mother. As a parent, it is our ultimate duty to protect our children. The courts have failed this child and his father. Its heart-wrenching.
