Jeffrey Younger is running for the Texas House of Representatives in order to “outlaw sex reassignment surgeries for children.” Nevermind that children are not candidates for gender confirmation surgery.

Do you all remember Jeffrey Younger? Younger is a grifter who was married to Anne Georgulas, a prominent pediatrician. They have a child; a trans girl named Luna. Younger did not approve. Recently, a judge stripped Younger of his parental rights.

Younger made a living off of people who donated to him, ostensibly for his legal fees. In order to chum the waters, Younger was responsible for ginning up a great deal of publicity. Some of it was in defiance of a court order.

In the not too distant future, Luna will search the Internet for her name. Luna will have to read all of the crap that Younger put into the public domain in order to attract donations.

Luna’s mom, Dr. Anne Georgulas has been totally silent. Younger has now added to the noise:

According to his campaign’s website:

The State of Texas is trying to transition my son into a girl. The last two sessions of the Texas Legislature have failed to outlaw sex-change surgeries on children. That was the third priority for the Texas Republican Party. I will enact the Republican Party Legislative Priorities, which are completely ignored most legislative sessions.

Of course the State of Texas is merely allowing doctors to practice medicine. Pediatricians are expected to adhere to the clinical standards of practice of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Apparently everything is Dr. Georgulas’ fault:

The courts allowed this abuse of my son without my consent and over my objections. I’m running for Texas State Representative in District 63 to save my son’s life and the lives of thousands of other children in Texas.

​My ex-wife began to teach my son James that he’s girl, at the age of two. I’ve spent over a million dollars in total economic costs trying to stop her, the courts, and the schools from transitioning my son to a girl. Now I’m going to Austin to stop them.

The public school is complicit:

The Coppell Independent School District is right now actively teaching my son that he is a girl. When I took James to school in boys clothing, the teacher gave him a dress to wear. The school doesn’t call James by his real name. They use a girl’s name. They actively teach James that he is really a girl. They even make James use the girl’s bathroom.

I find it fascinating that Younger presumes to know more about pediatric gender dysphoria than the doctors who have been treating Luna. Moreover, Dr. Georgulas is not “teaching” Luna her gender identity. The claim is ludicrous. Gender identity is not something that can be influenced by others.

Nor, for that matter, is Luna’s school teaching her what her gender identity is. Moreover, the school is addressing Luna a she chooses to be addressed. Furthermore, that school is not “making” Luna use the gender-appropriate bathroom. Again that is Luna’s choice.

As for the “million dollars,” Younger was living off his wife when they were married. Younger asked his wife for a few thousand dollars when they split. If he raised that much there are two questions:

  1. How much was used for its intended purpose and;
  2. did he pay the requisite income tax? Everything above $15,000/year is taxable between 18% and 40%. The only legal fees that are tax-deductible are those used to protect a financial interest.

I defy Younger to prove that he spent $1 million in legal fees. Something tells me that the IRS is going to have a little chat with this transphobic schmuck.
