The court just ruled ‘yes,’ and conservatives are celebrating. This a victory for commonsense and decency. Liberals are furious that the did not go their way.
Jeffrey Younger, a Texas father who has been fighting to keep his seven-year-old son, James, from ‘transitioning’ to a girl has been granted joint conservatorship of the boy with his ex-wife — meaning he will have a say in the matter.
The boy’s mother, Anne Georgulas, claims that their son is transgendered and sought the right to give him “hormone therapy and puberty suppression” without any input from the father over this life-altering decision.
Judge Kim Cooks disagreed with Georgulas, thereby overturning a disastrous decision by the jury declaring that “Younger could not prevent Georgulas from allowing their son to change genders.”
Younger argued from the beginning that their son was perfectly content to be a boy, while Georgulas was advised by an LGBT family therapist and a pediatrician to transition him. This case captured the attention of the nation.
