Episode 4: 'A Nightmare': How Transgender Chaos Is Invading Law and Policy — and Threatening Parental Rights
“What a lie from the pit of hell.” That’s how Arkansas state Rep. Robin Lundstrum frames the claim from some that children won’t face long-term harm from so-called gender transition measures. She’s just one of the voices who appear in the fourth installment of “Generation Indoctrination: Inside the Transgender Battle.”At the baseline of the transgender movement is an affirmation-only model that leaves no room for questions, inquiry, rational discussion, or debate. As we’ve explored thus far, the implications of this sinister approach have impacted our schools, medical institutions, and families. In the fourth installment of “Generation Indoctrination,” we explore the perils of affirmation-only approaches on the legal and legislative fronts. Often driven by emotion, these policies create familial crises and threaten parental rights.And it’s the “feelings” part of the equation that begs to be broken down. In this episode, a therapist, who chose to speak under a pseudonym for fear of retribution, explained her belief that this handling is both tragic and dangerous, especially for kids.“It's solely based upon our feelings and I don't know about you, but I know my own feelings change from time to time,” she said. “And this is particularly true of young girls in middle school. Young people's feelings are all over the place.”This dynamic, mixed with problematic assumptions, is creating a crisis — one based on the lie that happiness and feelings are at the core of truth. “Happiness is always fleeting, so this is severely flawed and thinking that I can be in a constant state of happiness, but this is the construct,” Carla said, noting that another assumption is that a person is his or her feelings and such feelings much be expressed outwardly. Showalter takes all of these elements and begins to explore how these emotions and the associated affirmation craze become codified into law. But while the government descends into madness, states and communities across the country are fighting back. Parents like Florida mom January Littlejohn often find themselves locked in legal battles over their children’s identity crises, which is why the legislative and legal elements of the transgender battle must be fully comprehended. “This is creating a huge wedge between parents and their children. It certainly did that in my family,” she said. “It was a year and a half of a nightmare I do not wish upon anybody.”Littlejohn’s attorney, Vernadette Broyles, also delivered a stirring and convicting call to action for anyone deeply concerned over these matters. “We need to communicate to the school officials, ‘[Our children] belong to us. We want them more, and you cannot have them,” she said.Listen to these powerful stories. Subscribe on your favorite platforms here.
