    Texas dad fears ex-wife plans to 'chemically castrate' 9-year-old son, New York Post, January 6, 2023

    The mother has taken the child and fled to California, and the dad can't get his son back.

    The 9-year-old says his mother, pediatrician Dr. Anne Georgulas, told him he was a girl and she also put him in dresses. "My blood ran cold when I realized what she had planned for that boy," the father Jeff Younger told Tucker Carlson.

    Younger claimed that his ex-wife had deliberately relocated his son and the boy's twin brother to California just days before the state's "trans refuge" law went into effect. According to Jeff Younger, his ex began "transitioning" James when he was just 2 years old and tried to enroll him in a gender clinic in Dallas at age 5.
    "Pediatrician records show that she intended to chemically castrate him at age 8 or 9, his current age," Younger alleged. "And then he magically moves to California? I don’t think this is an accident."

    Of course the son is just 9 years old and it sounds like he doesn't really know what he wants. It seems like the mother is either projecting this on him, thinking that he is "transgender" so she has to do everything to "help" him; either that or more cynically the mother may just want a daughter and is using her influence to turn one of her children into the daughter that she wanted. She is a pediatrician with an M.D. degree so easily has the capability to start the process.

    she's castrating her ex by proxy.
    an element of this could involve passive aggressive revenge. Parents use their children as pawns all the time to get back at their former spouse in the aftermath of a divorce. Sometimes they are so fixated on bitterness and petty revenge they ignore how what they are doing is affecting the wellbeing of their child.
    The mother probably is getting some perverse delight at tormenting the father through doing this.

    Why are we resurrecting a Tucker piece from 5 months ago?
    I wonder if this father did not have an ulterior motive

    his claim that they wanted to put the child on “puberty blockers at age 9” rings a little suspicious given that they do not work if the child has yet to reach puberty

    Younger accused Georgulas of forcing James to socially transition into a girl by making the child wear dresses. However, she claimed three mental health professionals had diagnosed James with gender dysphoria and that therapists had recommended they start using the name Luna instead of James.

    Georgulas said she had noticed James was requesting girl-themed toys, was imitating female Disney characters and was asking to wear dresses.

    When she took him to see a gender therapist at a children’s hospital, it was recommended that James start social transitioning by wearing dresses to school and going by the name Luna.

    Younger claims his ex-wife had been forcing the transition ever since their divorce and has accused Georgulas of starting to manipulate their child when James was just three years old accusing her of locking their son in the bedroom and telling their child that 'monsters only eat boys.'

    Puberty blockers, block puberty. The very goal is to block puberty so you would not wait until puberty.

    The mother is a sick person who's committing child abuse

    The more logical thing to do would be to buy the boy a BB gun and a dirt bike.

    And how many 9 year olds are actually in puberty? Especially males. The body has to start making testosterone for the puberty blockers to work. They don’t just stand around in the blood stream say “don’t go there”.

    excerpt from the article:

    Because the onset of puberty varies so widely - as early as age 9 for some - suppression can begin at different ages. And that’s prompted some disagreement within the field - the “age versus stage” debate - about when to begin, according to Leibowitz. Most often blockers are initiated at the first visible signs of development as measured by the Tanner Stages, a scale of sexual maturation developed by pediatrician James Tanner. The trigger for suppression is usually Tanner stage 2, when pubic hair and breast buds appear.

    “If you are able to suspend puberty as soon as it happens you’re optimizing the benefits that it can bring physically,” said Leibowitz. Starting early may alleviate the need for surgical breast removal or voice modification therapy later on. It also makes it far easier for transgender teens to fit in. “That ability to blend in and be perceived as the gender that they identify with is associated with long-term psychological benefits,” said Leibowitz.

    But does that mean that 9- or 10-year-old transgender kids should be started on puberty blockers? Even though the treatment is reversible and is considered safe, Leibowitz said some clinicians argue the age issue is important because less is known about very early interventions.​

    Giving puberty blockers to any child is child abuse, stunting their natural development.

    Kind of like the minor that had a double mastectomy in the recent post
