Texas Governor Greg Abbott has ordered an investigation into 7-year-old James Younger and the ongoing gender transition debate his parents are having.
James’ father, Jeff Younger, filed for sole custody over James, who was born a boy, and his twin brother Jude after their mother said she wants James to undergo a gender transition.
James’ mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, who is divorced from Younger, says James identifies as a girl, is transgender, likes to wear dresses and goes by the name “Luna.” She also wants James to begin hormone replacement therapy to achieve both a “social transition” and “medical transition.”
Children must be protected
This is James Younger
He is being forced to become a girl against his will
He is 7 years old
This is so beyond wrong
The media is totally silent and complicit in this madness
This is the left
RT and pray for this kid

Fox News reports a court sided with James’ mother in the debate and has rule she is to maintain sole custody over James, allowing her to proceed with the transition.
“On Monday, a jury returned a verdict in favor of Georgulas,” Fox News reports. But “a judge will have the final say over the custody battle Thursday afternoon.”
It is at this point that the Texas governor intervened and demanded the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services look into the case.
FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. #JamesYounger

Here’s more on the case, from the Washington Examiner:
Jeffrey Younger had petitioned a court in Texas to grant him sole custody of his twin sons, James and Jude, in part to avoid a plan to infuse James with female hormones. James, who would like to be called Luna, has been the center of controversy in the heated debate among his parents and others.
Anne Georgulas, the mother of the two boys, has advocated for James to transition into Luna and has strongly backed the idea of chemically castrating her son and beginning hormone replacement therapy. The ruling on Wednesday will prevent Jeffrey from having sole custody of his children and paves the way for Georgulas to proceed with the procedure.
The court has ruled that Georgulas will maintain sole custody of her two children and go forward with plans to give James life-altering medical procedures. Her original court filing had sought to limit her ex-husband’s visits with their children and require that he now refer to James as Luna. She further asked that Jeffrey not be exposed to any people who would not confirm his female identity.
Twitchy reports several people online expressed thanks to the governor for intervening in the case:

Republicans need to introduce legislation to make transgender medical intervention illegal for children and minors and to ensure both parents have equal say in any social transition.

Of course this is no time for spiking the football anyway. The judge hasn’t delivered her final ruling. We’ll find out tomorrow if we can celebrate. But at least maybe some legislative action will be taken in the long run.
