The Texas 7-year-old at the heart of a fierce custody battle due to his mom’s insistence that he wants to transition to life as a girl has opted to go to school as a boy.
“This is what it looks like when JAMES gets to choose!” read a Facebook message posted earlier this week by the “Save James” group, showing a photo of the kid wearing a long-sleeve button-down and black slacks, and standing alongside twin brother Jude.
James has been at the center of a raging custody battle, with mom Anne Georgulas seeking to begin hormone-replacement therapy because, she claims, James is transgender, likes wearing dresses and prefers to be called “Luna.”
But dad Jeffrey Younger has maintained that his son opts for his birth name and traditional boys’ clothes whenever they’re together, and that anything to the contrary is solely Georgulas’s influence.
That’s purported to be the case in the Facebook post, which recounts James going to school identifying as James.
“Jeff emailed the principal today and James and Jude’s teachers had reported that there was zero stress or disruptions in the classroom today,” the post read. “Just another day in school … Prayers answered.”
The post also includes a shot of James and Jude wearing suits and ties as they stand with their father before heading to church.
“James and Jude [are] proud to be men!” the captions reads. “Save James, save thousands of children!”
A Dallas jury ruled last month that Georgulas should have custody of James, but a judge overturned that decision, decreeing that both parents should retain joint custody and have an equal say in any medical procedures, including transitioning.
State officials including the Texas attorney general are probing the firestorm case.
The “Save James” group has been a vocal opponent of Georgulas’s attempts to transition James, but the extent of its affiliation with Jeffrey Younger was not immediately clear.
