Episode 2: Doctors Unveil Trans Scandal Inside Clinics and Medical Institutions: 'Families Are Being Torn Apart'

Episode 2: Doctors Unveil Trans Scandal Inside Clinics and Medical Institutions: 'Families Are Being Torn Apart'
“Families are being torn apart.” That’s a heartbreaking reality at the center of the transgender craze today. In the second installment of the “Generation Indoctrination Podcast,” host Brandon Showalter explores the scandal inside our medical institutions, exposing how an affirmation-only approach to the transgender crisis is obliterating families and leaving children lost, confused, and maimed.This philosophy, which is under the umbrella of so-called “gender-affirming care,” states a child’s notion of their so-called “gender identity” — even if it is the opposite sex — must be immediately and unquestionably affirmed. In episode two, Showalter takes a deeper look into the world of medicine and the institutional power, especially in the corporate media, working to further this ideology. Those who dare to criticize or challenge it are often silenced or shamed in order to make them fall in line.Dr. Quentin Van Meter, an endocrinologist and president of the American College of Pediatricians, and Dr. Andre Van Mol, a family physician, are just two of the voices boldly standing up to take listeners inside this complex cabal.  “The first weapon that they use is, ‘If you don't believe what we say, then you are bigoted and hateful.’ That's kind of the starting point,” Van Meter explains. “And it's a sort of an unspoken truth because if anybody does really come outside the box and say, “Whoa, wait a minute. This isn't right,’ they are immediately attacked in any way possible.”But this pressure in the medical field isn’t limited to the physicians at the helm of influential entities governing professional protocols and their public policy positions. It is also felt in the doctor’s offices and involves the coercion of parents — moms and dads who are many times already reeling in confusion over the internal turmoil their children are experiencing. The affirmation-only approach seizes upon this frenzy to push parents toward affirming and even transitioning their children. While a handful of European nations are now moving away from this pathway, the United States and Canada appear to be proceeding full-spead ahead, with youth being propelled toward puberty-blocking drugs and life-altering surgeries.The consequences are profound. Lives hang in the balance. Listen to episode two of “Generation Indoctrination” to explore the dangers surrounding fast-tracking kids into medicalization in this transgender mania.
Episode 4: 'A Nightmare': How Transgender Chaos Is Invading Law and Policy — and Threatening Parental Rights

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.

FINALE: 'I...Lost Nine Years of My Life': A Mass Medical Experiment Breeding Chaos, Infertility, and Regret
“I feel like I lost nine years of my life.” That’s how Laura Beth Perry Smalts now sees the nine years she desperately tried to live as a transgender man.Smalts, a Christian who now openly shares her journey of gender confusion, explained the conundrum she once found herself in.“I just thought [I was a] man born in a woman's body,” Smalts said on the final chapter of the “Generational Indoctrination” podcast. “And I just needed to fix the body.”Smalts’ quest to transition, though, led her on a quest to desperately try to prove she was anything but her biological gender. She ended up taking hormones and having surgery to change every aspect of her body — including the removal of her reproductive system — to match her internal feelings.“There was all the regret too, of just the things that I've done to my body — the fact that I didn't have breasts anymore,” she explained. “And I ended up getting married and my husband didn't know if I'd ever have breasts again. I was able to get breast surgery about three months ago and get implants, but it's not the same.”Smalts, who became a Christian while still living as a transgender man and eventually de-transitioned, now ponders why none of the doctors caring for her mentioned the damaging nature of the medical procedures she was engaging in.“It's so maddening when I look back … where are the doctors that were willing to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, this is really not good for your body?’” Smalts said. Listen to Smalts and others discuss the perils of the transgender movement in the final chapter of "Generation Indoctrination."

BONUS: Biological Men in Women's Prisons? The 'Insane' and Terrifying Situation Plaguing Female Inmates
"There seems to be no area of society where this ideology has not invaded." That's host Brandon Showalter's assessment of the transgender movement's impact on various facets of contemporary culture.In today's bonus episode of "Generation Indoctrination," Showalter shifts gears to confront a shocking arena many know little about — the presence of biological men in women's prisons. This disturbing dynamic has left female inmates terrified, vulnerable, and, according to Showalter's guests, at risk of assault.>>>> WARNING: Adult themes and discussions are present in this episode. This is not appropriate for children. Join Showalter as he navigates the issues, explores the gritty details, and speaks with former inmates and advocates sounding the alarm on the unthinkable. "When I first learned that they were housing men in women's prions based on their own self-identification about their gender feelings it was naturally disbelief and horror," Amanda Stulman, USA director of Keep Prisons Single Sex, proclaims on the podcast. "And also: a realization that this issue had not been brought to the public for a public discussion and debate."Amie Ichikawa, executive director of Woman II Woman, an organization for incarcerated women, describes the "feeling of utter vulnerability" inside female prisons when biological men make their way into the general population. Amie explains how the ideology has been forced upon incarcerated females in a religious-like manner, all while leaving women in a dire situation.
