It's known as Munchausen syndrome by proxy, and while Dr. Michelle Cretella, ACP's executive director, admits that she can't make an honest and accurate diagnosis simply from news headlines, the child-abuser in question, Dr. Anne Georgulas, M.D., of Dr. Anne Pediatrics in Coppell, Texas, could very well be projecting her own mental illness on her young son, Dr. Cretella says.
"This case is consistent with a diagnosis of Munchausen by proxy," Dr. Cretella told the media. "This is a disorder in which an adult feigns either physical or psychological condition in a child for their own subconscious reasons. Most often the perpetrator is the biological mother and she often has a background in health or medicine."
"In the case of imposing gender dysphoria on a son, there are cases in the scientific literature of severe maternal depression triggered in a mother longing for a daughter. The mother's depression lifts when the boy dresses and acts as a girl. This has been termed 'gender mourning.'"
It's definitely a stretch, but could be a possibility. In case you missed it, Dr. Georgulas is attempting to take advantage of a bias inherent to Texas family law that always sides with the woman during a divorce – even when the woman is found to have been abusing her child, as is the case with Dr. Georgulas.
The father of Dr. Georgulas' son James, a Christian man, has been doing everything he can to win custody of his son, who he says prefers to wear boy clothes and do boy things when he's not under the influence of Dr. Georgulas.
Regardless of whether or not Dr. Georgulas is mentally ill herself, young James should obviously never be under her guardianship, nor should Dr. Georgulas be allowed any contact with the boy as she's a clear and present danger to his mental and physical health.
Keep in mind that Dr. Georgulas is ready, upon getting the green light from the courts, to physically mutilate young James with hormone drugs and surgery to make him appear to be a girl, which represents a form of physical assault and rape against his biologically male genitals and male genetic makeup.
"In the father's home, James appears to be a normal boy and doesn't identify as a girl," says Walt Heyer, a speaker, author, and former transgender individual who now runs the website SexChangeRegret.com.
"The fact that James changes gender identity depending on which parent is present makes the diagnosis of gender dysphoria both dubious and harmful."
Dr. Cretella agrees, having studied James' case extensively and herself determined that the boy is "happy behaving like a stereotypical boy." In one instance, James "actually cut up the girl clothing," he says, which only further proves that he's internally opposed to the agenda of Dr. Georgulas and belongs under the real care of his loving father, rather than his mentally ill and deranged biological mother.
"The fact that the therapist ignores the obvious amounts to child abuse," Dr. Cretella says, referring to the "therapist" to whom Dr. Georgulas insists upon taking the son she's abusing. "This therapist and the mother are conditioning James to identify as transgender and to begin the road of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. This will destroy his life."
