The father of a 9-year-old Texas boy whose pediatrician mother is intent on transitioning the child into a girl and moved to California only days before a sanctuary law went into effect went on national television to plead his case.
Jeff Younger has been fighting the efforts of his ex-wife, Anne Georgulas, to “transition” their son James for years; as far back as 2019, he released a video showing him talking to his son when he was 3 years old.
“It’s the first iPhone video I ever took,” Younger told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “My blood ran cold when I realized what she had planned for that boy. It escalated to where she eventually registered him in school as a girl; I had to shut that down. So the Coppell school district tried to secretly transition my son; I’d bring my son to school in boy’s clothes and they’d give him a dress and make him use the girls’ restroom. And it even escalated further when she began to present him to the world as a girl.”
In October 2021, a court order to which both parents agreed stated “neither parent may treat a child with hormonal suppression therapy, puberty blockers, and/or transgender reassignment surgery (if any) without the consent of the parents or court order.”
Earlier this week, the Texas Supreme Court dismissed Younger’s petition to prohibit Georgulas from moving to California with their two boys. Last Sunday, a California law went into effect that states that it “prohibit[s] the enforcement of an order based on another state’s law authorizing a child to be removed from their parent or guardian based on that parent or guardian allowing their child to receive gender-affirming health care or gender-affirming mental health care.”
California State Rep. Scott Wiener, who authored the bill, asserted that it “will protect trans kids and their families if they flee to California from Alabama, Texas, Idaho or any other state criminalizing the parents of trans kids for allowing them to receive gender-affirming care.”
We filed an amicus brief (friend of the court) with the Texas Supreme Court expressing our support for Jeff Younger's parental rights in opposition to the overreach of California government into Texas. Our prayers are with Jeff to prevail!https://t.co/jiZQEXIfh3

“His twin brother got completely confused by all this; we wound up going to a 2019 trial where the courts give me 50/50 custody and joint conservator rights to check her ability to transition my son, and the corrupt Democrat establishment in Dallas County transferred my case into the 301st District Court with Judge Mary Brown, and she never implemented the trial with the jury verdict and through temporary orders stripped me of all my parental rights and eventually allowed my ex to move to California right before, just a few days before the sanctuary law in California went into effect,” Younger said.
“The pediatrician records show that she intended to chemically castrate him at age eight or nine, his current age. And then he magically moves to California? I don’t think this is an accident,” Younger stated.

In the video when James Younger was 3, Jeff Younger asked his son, “You’re a boy, right?”
“No,” James answered. “I’m a girl.”
“Who told you you’re a girl?” Younger asked.
“Mommy,” James replied.
Jeff Younger: “When did she tell you you were a girl?”
“Because I love girls!” James told him.
“Oh, I see. So mommy told you you’re a girl?”
“Mhmm,” James agrees.
After James informed his father that his mother put dresses on him, bought him headbands and hair clips, and painted his nails because he liked nail polish, Younger asked his son, “So mommy puts you in a dress and puts nail polish on you?”
“Mhmm,” James responded.
“And what does mommy tell you?”
“She tells me I’m a girl,” James told his father.
