You think your ex-spouse issues are bad? Well, they’re probably not as intense as Jeffrey Younger’s. The Texas father’s embroiled in a ferocious custody battle as his former wife attempts to raise their son — James — as their daughter, Luna.
Speaking on Luke Macias’s eponymous podcast Monday, Jeffrey described the situation:
“I want you to imagine having electronic communication with your son on FaceTime. And imagine that your ex-wife has dressed him as a drag queen to talk to you. He has false eyelashes and makeup. His hair has got glitter in it. He’s wearing a dress. Now imagine how you would feel seeing what I believe is actual sexual abuse — I believe this is not just emotional abuse but is the very most fundamental form of sexual abuse, tampering with the sexual identity of a vulnerable boy.”
James’s mom is accusing Jeffrey of child abuse “for not affirming [their son] as transgender.” Subsequently, she’s attempting to have his parental rights terminated.
She’s also demanding he pay for James’s pro-transgender therapy and upcoming medical treatments, which may include “chemical castration” in only two years.
Jeffrey explained further:
[James] goes to school, the teachers call him ‘Luna.’ He uses the girl’s bathroom at school. All of his authority figures – his mother, his teacher, the librarian at school, the police officer at school, the principal at school – tell him he’s a girl. I’m the only authority figure in his life that tells him the truth: that he’s actually a boy. … She only [gives him] love and affection when [he’s] acting like a girl. … She used to lock [him] in his room and tell him monsters only eat boys.”
The court’s order against Jeffrey makes for a difficult time in public, particularly at school:
“I am enjoined on pain of criminal contempt from presenting my son as a boy to any third party that already knows him as a girl. I am enjoined from attempting to persuade my son that he’s actually a boy — that is the actual language of the injunction. And I’m not to give my son any undue embarrassment. All of these things severely constrain my public speech. … I went to a simple school meeting. … When I’m talking about James, I can’t say, ‘How’s he doing?'”
And there’s to be no talk of religion or science. As per The Daily Wire:
“The father has been legally barred from speaking to his child about sexuality and gender from a scientific or religious perspective and from dressing his son in boys’ clothes; instead, he has to offer both girls’ and boys’ outfits.”
Jeffrey summarized his daily life:
“Every. Single. Day. You have to see your son sexually abused, and you have to maintain your calm. You have to be the one who’s calm — because the court’s are not going to be fair to you. And the only way you can survive this and get your son through this alive is to calmly allow your son to be tortured right before your eyes and outlast the opposition. That’s what it’s like. They’re asking me to affirm a delusion.”
There’s another component surely adding to James’s confusing childhood experience: The 6-year-old has a twin brother, Jude.
The issue of transgenderism and children is progressively penetrating the news cycle, such as this incredible story. We should expect to see more, as society itself continues to transition.
