Censorship of Doctors Opposing “Trans Chaos”

“As the debate heats up over the impact of the transgender movement on children, two bold doctors are speaking up about what they see as bullying tactics aimed at silencing critics–and the truth. Dr. Quentin Van Meter, a pediatric endocrinologist and president of the American College of Pediatricians, and Dr. Andre Van Mol, a family doctor, are just two of the subjects in ‘Generation Indoctrination,’ a new podcast from Christian Post reporter Brandon Showalter. Both have unique insight into this arena. In an interview, Van Meter passionately expressed his concern over the handling of those who choose to question the current affirmation-only approach for kids who identify as transgender, revealing a mass silencing. Van Meter shared his belief that medical societies and institutions have so swiftly signed on board the affirmation-only bandwagon because of fear. Those who choose to speak out–or want to tell the truth–often fear retribution. ‘Their division heads will say, I’m sorry, you’re not speaking for this university. This is your personal opinion, and this is bigoted and hateful, and we’ll have none of it. And if you don’t retract what you wrote, we’re going to have to reconsider whether or not you’ll achieve tenure and whether or not you can publish in journals because you’re representing us,’ he explained. Meanwhile, he said, parents are being indoctrinated into the fold as well, and are being given few options outside of the affirmation-only paradigm. ‘The kind of intimidation that’s thrown at parents–Do you want a live son or a dead daughter? Do you want to be planning a transition or a funeral?’ Van Meter said. ‘It’s incredible that people are hearing this from their healthcare and mental health professionals.’ He also highlighted the monies purportedly being made from surgeries and treatments–something particularly disturbing in light of the fact many young people reportedly outgrow transgender identity.
