Watch: Father of James Younger Reacts to Courtroom Victory for Son’s Gender

Jeffrey Younger, father of seven-year-old James Younger, emerged from a Texas courtroom Thursday with a smile after a judge ruled that James’ parents will have joint conservatorship over their son — a decision which includes making medical decisions for him.

As Breitbart News’ reported:

James is at the center of a high-conflict custody battle between Younger and his ex-wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, a pediatrician who reportedly diagnosed James with “gender-dysphoria,” a psychological disorder that is characterized by a child’s “persistent, consistent, and insistent” assertion of “their cross-gender statements and behaviors.”

A jury in Dallas decided Monday against Younger’s attempt to block his ex-wife’s plan to start their seven-year-old son on puberty blockers and ultimately continue with cross-sex hormones in order to facilitate gender transition.

The case has created a firestorm as more evidence is revealing the psychological and physical damage that is done to young children when their parents consent to puberty blockers before the children are capable of understanding the consequences.

When asked if he was happy about the judge’s ruling, Younger can be heard saying “yes” before being ushered away.
