The Texas state government is looking into the case of a Texas father who recently lost his legal attempt to stop his ex-wife from potentially turning their 7-year-old son into a girl.
Now a jury and judge have ruled against the father in the case. That appears to give the mother the go-ahead to turn their son James into a girl whom she already calls "Luna."
The boy's father says that when James is with him, he shows no signs of wanting to be a girl when given the choice.
Court documents show the boy dresses as a girl and goes by the name "Luna" when he's with his mother, but witnesses for the father say he chooses boys' clothes and goes by his given name "James" when he's with him.
Now a jury has ruled against giving the father sole custody. He fought for that because the mother has been trying to legally force the dad to treat James as a girl. LifeSite News also reports the mother wants to give James puberty blockers and "cross-sex hormones." The outrage has been widespread:

A 7-year-old can't possibly make this decision or understand it. Parents should know better. I hope this father receives the public support he needs. #ProtectJamesYoungerhttps://t.co/4hszPgqGWe
Now, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says his government is investigating the case.
"FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General's Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services."
