'A Lie From the Pit of Hell': Extended Trailer of Generation Indoctrination - Inside the Transgender Battle
EXTENDED TRAILER: The transgender craze is growing and metastasizing in America and worldwide. Confusion is abounding.

PREMIERE: Gender Chaos in America: Have Schools Become 'Indoctrination Centers for Gender Ideology?'
The transgender craze is growing and metastasizing in America and across the world. Confusion is abounding. And while Western cultures celebrate and elevate it, the costs are quickly mounting. From a loss of parental rights to botched and destroyed young lives, this movement leaves little room for apathy. Brandon Showalter, a journalist with The Christian Post, has spent years covering the developments of the so-called gender identity movement. In this five-part investigative podcast series, he'll take you through parents’ heartbreaking stories. He'll also explore the chaotic state of our education system in the United States and the overtly sinister actions and craven cowardice of our institutions. "Generation Indoctrination" will look at the history of how we arrived where we are, and so much more. In this inaugural episode, we’ll specifically tackle how some of our schools have become indoctrination centers for gender ideology — and the dire impact this is having on families. We’ll cover the harrowing journey of January Littlejohn, a mother from Florida whose daughter's own experience with gender confusion and her school's purported reactions have sparked her to action.We'll also hear from attorneys, school board members, parent advocates, and other experts who have deep concerns over where this movement is taking us. This is "Generation Indoctrination."More from The Christian PostThe Christian Post WebsiteThe Christian Post Daily PodcastCP The Inside Story PodcastSubscribe to this PodcastApple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle PodcastsGet the Edifi AppDownload for iPhoneDownload for Android

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 3: Inside the 'Dark History': The Disturbing, Diabolical Roots of the Movement
One of the most remarkable facets of the transgender debate is the speed and ferocity with which it was foisted upon the American public. After the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges case in 2015, few people might have assumed we would be where we are now on the trans front – and in just a few, short years. So, how did we get here? What are the roots of the trans movement that carried us to this precarious place? In the third installment of the “Generation Indoctrination Podcast,” host Brandon Showalter explores the disturbing history, the roots of chaos, and why it's essential to understand the past for proper framing of the present.

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."

SEASON PREMIERE: A Breaking Point? Legislatures Revolt Against Gender Ideology
Welcome to the season 3 premiere of "Generation Indoctrination," hosted by The Christian Post's Brandon Showalter: This past year was unlike any before it in terms of visible opposition to transgender policies, particularly the experimental medicalization of gender confusion via puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and the performing of irreversible surgeries on gender-confused minors.  Across the U.S. South and Midwest, 17 state legislatures implemented bans on gender medicalization on youth and, as of this episode's publication, a bill that would do so is sitting on the desk of the governor of Ohio, which will become the 18th state this year if the legislation if enacted into law. The state-level legislative push is perhaps the greatest indicator that public awareness has reached a point where the issue cannot be ignored nationally and it is likely to be discussed in the context of the 2024 presidential election. In this inaugural episode of the third season of "Generation Indoctrination," The Christian Post engages lawmakers who have been instrumental at the state level to protect children from irreversible medical harm in addition to public policy experts and leaders working to address these and related issues on the national scene, including a left-wing radical feminist activist and author who has been resisting gender identity ideology and policies for nearly a decade.

Inside the U.S. Epicenter of Transgender Ideology and Activism
For several reasons, the state of California is where ideological trends in the United States originate and spread, and the furtherance of transgender ideology is no exception. The largest and most populous state in the union is also home to Hollywood and Silicon Valley and thus shapes the culture in important ways. Meanwhile, the state legislature is one of the most left-wing in the country and has rubber-stamped many public policies that have advanced “gender identity” in every sphere of society.In episode two of the latest season of "Generation Indoctrination," The Christian Post examines the Golden State’s influence on the nation, and why resistance is necessary even in areas where the proverbial deck appears to be stacked against opponents of gender ideology. A crucial player in the California legislature is state senator Scott Weiner, a homosexual man who represents portions of San Francisco and has sponsored numerous bills advancing transgender ideology, including the bill that enabled men to transfer into women’s prisons. We scrutinize his influence and what motivates him. As states across the U.S. South and Midwest pass legislation banning gender medicalization of children – puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and trans surgery on minors – these California advocates insist that the battle against gender ideology must be fought and won in California, not only because those children matter, but because the state laws now enable kids from other states to come to California and be harmed.Among those resisting the onslaught are two lifelong yet now-disaffected Democrat women – a parent activist whose daughter became caught up in the trans craze and a longtime lesbian activist from San Francisco. Also featured in this installment are a Christian conservative activist with the California Family Council, a tenacious endocrinologist trying to get answers via FOIA requests from the federal government about controversial medical research on gender-confused children, and a formerly incarcerated woman who is now advocating for females who are forced to share prison quarters with trans-identifying males because of the California legislature’s moves in recent years. Tune in to Generation Indoctrination on all podcast platforms.

Parental Resistance: Moms and Dads Fight for Their Gender-Confused Kids
The parents of children who have suddenly started identifying as “transgender” or other designations like “nonbinary” or “genderqueer” have suffered more than most people as a result of the invasion of gender ideology. This is especially the case in the medical arena as young people are now enticed down a path of experimental medicalization entailing risky procedures such as the use of cross-sex hormones and body-altering surgeries to appear more as the opposite sex. With this medicalization, parental rights are eroding as the age of consent laws for these medical practices have been lowered.  In the third installment of season 3 of this podcast series, we’ll speak to a mom who managed to pull her daughter back from the proverbial ledge after her young daughter was swept up into the gender identity social contagion, another mom in agony whose daughter has gone as far as possible medically, and a dad who dared to push back against the medical establishment when his cancer-stricken son became convinced he was the other sex. This father was among those profiled in “Dead Name” an indie documentary film about the struggles parents face; the movie also features “Generation Indoctrination" host Brandon Showalter. We also speak to Andrew Bailey, the current Attorney General of Missouri who, despite not having any of his kids mired in the trans craze is himself a concerned parent and has been fighting against the gender clinics in the Show Me State after a whistleblower came forward with sworn testimony about how children were being hurt and parents undermined at a transgender clinic in St. Louis.  The grief and suffering of these moms and dads has been neglected in the mainstream press — but their voices must be heard.

In Their Own Words: Detransitioners, Advocates Decry Deceptions of 'Gender-Affirming Care'
More than anyone else, those who have personally experienced the experimental medical procedures involved in so-called “gender-affirming care” are keenly aware of the lies of trans ideology. The group of people called “detransitioners” have taken hormones and undergone surgeries to alter their bodies to appear more like the opposite sex have learned in the hardest way possible that no one has ever been or ever will be “born in the wrong body.”  The regret such detrans individuals face is so profound that it has motivated some of them to testify in state legislatures in support of bills and policies prohibiting such practices of administering puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries on minors. They are also contributing to documentary films and books. Yet others have even filed medical negligence lawsuits against the doctors and medical institutions that harmed them and their cases are presently working through the courts. Advocacy on behalf of such people is emerging on several fronts as their stories are being heard more widely, in no small part due to their public testimonies before government committees and in legislative hearings.  In this fourth episode of season 3, we engage a young detrans man and a young detrans woman who are among this group who are speaking out about how they were harmed, an attorney who has filed lawsuits on behalf of a few detrans women, and an author and filmmaker who is an expert in bioethics. The author and filmmaker has written an upcoming book featuring personal stories of both male and female detransitioners, the history behind the push to make transgenderism mainstream, and how gender ideology has eroded biomedical ethics. She is also about to release her third film on the subject.

SEASON FINALE: How Should the Church Respond to Gender Ideology?
The Christian Post has always been unequivocal about where we, as a publication, stand on the issue of gender ideology. We believe that it is not only fundamentally at odds with historic, biblically orthodox Christian faith, but that it has also unleashed some of the worst medical atrocities and human rights violations the world has ever seen. We believe that so-called “gender-affirming care” is horrific, unmitigated child abuse, and that lying about the material reality of sex endangers vulnerable populations such as incarcerated women, who are now forced to share prison quarters with violent males as a result of such trans-friendly policies. It is, as CP executive editor Richard Land has said numerous times, “the epitome of self-idolatry, the ultimate attempt to become one’s own god.”And yet how should the church respond to those who are struggling? How do we address the nefarious, ideological push that is in nearly all of our cultural institutions, while also offering compassionate pastoral care for those suffering from gender confusion? How should churches approach these matters with uncompromised boldness, biblical wisdom, and the grace of Jesus Christ? Weighing in on these questions in the final episode of "Generation Indoctrination" are two theologians, a Christian counselor, and a man who works to equip the rising generation in a biblical worldview and is also the co-author (with “Generation Indoctrination” host Brandon Showalter) of the e-book “Exposing the Gender Lie: How To Protect Children and Teens from the Transgender Industry’s False Ideology.”We will grapple with these issues and much more in the finale of season 3 of "Generation Indoctrination: Inside the Transgender Battle."

A Father Fights Back: How the Family Courts Facilitated The Sterilization Of His Gender-Confused Minor Son
Click HERE to learn more about the Master of Bioethics degree at Trinity Evangelical Divinity SchoolWhen family courts and the legal system are captured by gender ideology, moms and dads who have reservations about medicalizing their gender-confused children with experimental drugs and surgeries have almost no recourse, particularly when there is a contentious divorce and a custody dispute between the parents. This is especially the case in the “trans sanctuary state” of California.Ted Hudacko knows this struggle all too well. He hasn’t seen one of his sons in years after California Superior Court judge Joni Hiramoto removed this San Francisco Bay Area dad’s custody after he expressed hesitancy that his son was transgender. In violation of the court order, clinicians and activists at the University of California - San Francisco Child and Adolescent Gender Center facilitated the surgical implantation of a hormone-blocking device in his son’s arm. They also started him on a course of cross-sex hormones. As a result of these medical interventions, Hudacko’s son is now almost certainly sterile. Hudacko’s case is a remarkable encapsulation of several dimensions of the gender ideology issues we have explored in the third season of “Generation Indoctrination.” In this bonus episode, we speak with him about his ongoing efforts to fight back against the system along with his attorney, Tracy Henderson. Hudacko is currently taking action in family court with contempt complaints against those who harmed his son and also a federal lawsuit. We will also briefly hear from Dr. Sallie Baxendale, a neuropsychologist from England who has been raising the alarm about the impact of puberty-blocking drugs on brain development. Her presentation at the Society for Evidence-based Gender Medicine’s conference in October 2023 can be viewed in its entirety here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5ZnRKqqByg&t=3s.
