A Texas boy whose mother says is a girl has attended school and church dressed as a boy, an action his father says supports his claim that he is not actually transgender.

A Texas judge ruled last month that both of James Younger’s parents would have a say in medical decisions, overturning an earlier jury ruling that gave that authority to only Dr. Anne Georgulas, the boy’s mother.

Jeffery Younger, James’s father, stands by his claim that his son does not actually wish to identify as a girl and that his ex-wife is forcing a transgender identity onto the child. She is pursuing chemical castration and medical puberty blockers for the seven-year-old.

A Facebook page advocating for James and other children subjected to “similar unnecessary medical treatment and abuse” shared a photo of James dressed as a boy.

“Going to school,” the post reads. “This is what it looks like when JAMES gets to choose!”

Georgulas said she knew James was actually a girl when he liked the movie Frozen and requested a girl toy at McDonald’s. Younger says she has been dressing James in dresses since he was was three.
