Apparently, the young boy only dresses as a girl while he is with his mother. According to court documents, she has enrolled him as a female named “Luna” in first-grade. However the father is contesting that his son always chooses to wear boy’s clothes, “violently refuses to wear girl’s clothes at my home,” as he identifies as a boy while with his father.
A Texas father is battling for his child in court in the wake of contesting his ex-wife’s case, that their six-year-old son is in fact a transgender young girl.
The mother has accused the father of child abuse in their divorce proceedings “for not affirming James as transgender” and is trying to remove parental rights from him. “She is also seeking to require him to pay for the child’s visits to a transgender-affirming therapist and transgender medical alterations, which may include hormonal sterilisation starting at age eight.”
As a result the father has been legally barred from discussing sexuality and gender from a scientific or religious perspective and from dressing his son in boys’ clothes. Instead, he has to now provide both girls’ and boys’ outfits. Although according to the father, his son consistently refuses to wear dresses.
The boy’s mother brought her son to see a gender transition therapist where he was diagnosed with gender dysphoria. According to the therapist’s notes, the boy chose to identify as a girl while he was alone in sessions with his mother; when he was with his father he chose to identify as a boy.
[A] dossier filed with the Dallas court says that, under the skilled eyes of the therapist, the child was presented two pieces of paper, one with the word “James” and one with the word “Luna,” and asked to pick the name he preferred. When the appointment only included his mother, James selected Luna, the name and gender he uses at his mother’s home and in his first-grade classroom. When the appointment was only with his father, however, James pointed to the boy name James, not the girl name.
In addition the father has also collected testimonies from parents of his son’s friends along with a church leader who claim they have only ever seen the six-year-old identify as a male.
The boy’s pastor, Christ Church Carrollton Bill Lovell, said, “Based on the three occasions I’ve spent time with him, I’d say he acts and looks unmistakably like a healthy six-year-old boy. … I am praying for [him], an average six-year-old boy, a sweet-natured, intelligent, lovable and at this point particularly vulnerable young man, caught up in a titanic clash of worldviews.”
“His mother came to pick up the boys to take them to [his brother’s] soccer game,” recalled Sarah Scott, a family friend and mother of three sons who are close with the boy. “[He] hugged his dad and said, ‘Love you.’ He refused to go to the soccer game as a girl with mom and stayed with dad. That evening they came to our house.“
However, the battle continues as the gender dysphoria diagnosis is being contested by the boy’s father.
Walt Heyer, author of Translate survivors and former transgender female, warns that the potential diagnosis could ruin the boy’s life, similar to what he went through after he was secretly cross-dressed by this grandmother for two-and-a-half years as a young boy.
“The diagnosis is critical, because labeling a child with gender dysphoria can trigger a series of physical and mental consequences for the child and has legal ramifications in the ongoing custody case. Get it wrong,” Heyer writes at The Federalist, the boy’s “life is irrevocably harmed.”
The boy’s “precious young life hinges purely on the diagnosis of gender dysphoria by a therapist who wraps herself in rainbow colors, affirms the diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and dismisses evidence to the contrary,” argues Heyer. “Remove the ‘rainbow’ from [the] diagnosis, and it crumbles under the weight of the criteria for the diagnosis of gender dysphoria.”
The author warned, “If we do not save [the boy] from a misdiagnosis, his next step is chemical castration at age eight, only two years away.”
The family fighting to save the boy from the possible misdiagnosis have set up a website named “Steve James”
