On Thursday, before Jeffery Younger was hit with a gag order from Judge Kim Cooks, LifeSiteNews reporter Madeleine Jacob spoke to the Texas dad fighting to save his seven-year-old son from a gender transition.
During the interview, Mr. Younger explained why he’s fighting to save his son and other children from transgender indoctrination and addressed negative claims his ex-wife Dr. Anne Georgulas has leveled against him.
Reacting to the jury’s decision not to grant Mr. Younger sole conservatorship over his son on Monday, the father told LifeSiteNews that he was shocked: “We put up an email form Ms. Georgulas to me in which she contemplates cutting the penis off my son. 20 minutes later, they go into deliberations, and they come back voting against me.”
“The Texas I grew up in, the Texas that I live in, if a parent did that, we’re just gonna give him [the child] to the other parent; we’re not gonna tolerate that kind of craziness. So it just tells you, I think, really how far our society has changed, and how much less Christian we are,” he continued.
Mr. Younger noted that he “predicted” the groundswell of support for James. “The very first interview that I ever did … I said, ‘I don’t believe Texans will allow this to happen to children.’”
Noting that the case will likely be appealed no matter which way the judge rules and could possibly head to the Supreme Court, Younger said he was “ready” and “willing” for the fight: “I would like to protect every child in the United States from these abhorrent practices by the medical community. It’s one of the reasons we’ve always said from the very beginning, we didn’t just say ‘save James,’ we said ‘save James; save thousands of kids.’ And the reason we said that last part is we did not want to forget the other children who are suffering from this with parents that just don’t have the resources, the will, the capacity, the circumstances to fight.”
Jacob brought up the accusations against Mr. Younger’s character, including that he supposedly exaggerated his finances to Ms. Georgulas before they were married. According to Younger, he and his ex-wife singed a prenuptial agreement that disclosed all their finances and had background checks completed prior to their wedding.
Younger also spoke of an alleged bias, explaining that his marriage of five years with Georgulas was annulled, meaning his children were now technically born out of wedlock. “As far as I know, that’s never happened before in Texas,” he said. “We don’t make children illegitimate; we don’t do that in Texas.”
Following the interview, Judge Cooks ruled that Mr. Younger will have a say in his son James’ gender “transition” by way of joint conservatorship over the boy.
Mr. Younger was also hit with a gag order by the judge, meaning the father will have to shut down the “Save James” website, which circulated videos of his boy, testimonials, and vital court documents.
