A Texas father is desperately attempting to stop his ex wife from chemically castrating their nine year old son. Jeff Younger posted a video having a discussion with his son, James, in which he says his mother told him he was a girl.

Jeff: “You’re a boy right?”

James: “No. I’m a girl” the nine year old responds.

Jeff: “Who told you you were a girl?”

James: “Mommy”

Younger’s ex wife moved to California from Texas and has been pursuing chemical transitioning for her son in order to stop sex hormone production. The medications are commonly known as ‘puberty blockers’ and have been the center of controversy for their use on minors with gender dysphoria.

Currently there is no federal age limit, but some states are fighting for legislature to protect minors. “My blood ran cold when I realized what she had planned for that boy” Younger told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on his primetime program.

James claimed his mother, who is a pediatrician, told him he was female because he ‘loved girls’ and would dress him up in ‘dresses.’ Younger claimed his ex-wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, planned to chemically castrate their son by the age of nine, his current age.

Harvard Reinstates Standardized Testing Requirement for Admissions

Harvard University announcement it will reverse its test-optional policy and reinstate standardized testing as a requirement for admission. The move has stirred a contentious debate within the academic community. Effective for applicants seeking entry in the fall of 2025, Harvard College will mandate the submission of either SAT or ACT scores, with limited exceptions for circumstances hindering access to these exams.

Hoekstra contends that standardized tests provide crucial predictive insights into a student’s potential for success in higher education and beyond. By reinstating the testing requirement, Harvard seeks to gather more comprehensive data, particularly beneficial for identifying talent across diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.

Proponents of the move, like Harvard Kennedy School’s political economy professor David J. Deming, emphasize the universality of standardized tests, arguing that they offer a level playing field for all applicants. Deming underscores the accessibility of these tests compared to other metrics like personal essays, which may favor privileged students with greater resources.

However, the decision has sparked criticism from those who argue that standardized tests perpetuate inequities in admissions. Critics point to studies, such as those conducted by Harvard economists Raj Chetty and others, which highlight disparities in access to advanced courses and extracurricular opportunities among students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The controversy surrounding Harvard’s policy shift reflects broader concerns within higher education about equity, diversity, and inclusion. While standardized testing may offer a standardized measure of academic aptitude, it also raises questions about its ability to accurately assess a student’s potential in light of systemic educational disparities.
