This September, the Sundance Channel will air a "groundbreaking" new "reality" show entitled "TransGeneration." The show follows "four unique individuals, two male-to-females and two female-to-males as they struggle to transition from one gender to the other in the midst of a grueling school year. From working-class campuses to private colleges steeped in tradition, we follow these four students as they juggle the pressures of college life, academia and family expectations with their own life-changing transitions. Idealistic and empassioned [sic], these four young adults embark on a journey of self-discovery and in the process re-define gender for their generation."
 
Sundance execs can't wait to put this gender propaganda out on the air, enhancing tolerance for those who can't decide whether they're boys or girls. "This series is a moving portrait of four fascinating people at a dramatic time in their lives," effuses Laura Michalchyshyn, executive vice president for programming and marketing at the Sundance Channel. "'TransGeneration' also offers an engaging first-hand look at the current trend on college campuses of confronting gender issues and politics head-on."

 "TransGeneration" provides a textbook example of television executives legitimizing deviancy for all of us in the name of a "live and let live" society where anything goes. As I explain in my new book, "Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future," Hollywood's focus on pushing the envelope leads to greater societal tolerance for higher levels of deviancy. According to the TV execs, we should all embrace the deviant -- after all, these transgendered students are "idealistic and impassioned," going through "life changes" just like the rest of us. Who are we to condemn them?

 And we can't just shrug off all of this deviancy as science fiction -- it's reality! These are real people, in real situations. After all, aren't we watching reality TV? That's the gimmick of "reality" television: We can't turn it off, because it's real . As long as we're going to live in the real world, we might as well watch "Reality's Greatest Hits" on Sundance instead of sitting through a lifetime of real world experience and possibly missing some of what real life has to offer.
