Liberals went on the attack, Wednesday, against actor Mario Lopez for the crime of saying that it is a bad idea for parents to allow little children to choose their own gender.
Lopez’ comments came from an appearance on the The Candace Owens Show, and a PragerU video he made recently. But the comments only recently riled the left.
During the Owens show, the host talked about the “weird trend” of Hollywood elites letting their kids become transgenders at the drop of a hat. Owens cited nutjob actress Charlize Theron who has allowed her 7-year-old boy to “become” a girl.
According to Yahoo News:
“Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,” Theron told the Daily Mail. “Until she looked at me when she was 3 years old and said, ‘I am not a boy!’”
Owens told the new Access Hollywood host, “A lot of weird trends come out of Hollywood and one of the weirder ones, for me, is this new trend where celebrities are coming out — and I know Charlize Theron did this a few weeks ago — is saying that their child is picking their gender. And this is strange to me, and they say, ‘Oh, I looked at my child and my child was swimming in a bathtub and looked up and said, “Mommy, I’m a boy’” and that’s weird …”
Owens worried that kids are far too young to know what they are saying and that parents need to be the adult in the relationship and not allow tiny tots to make such life-altering decisions.
Lopez agreed saying, “When you’re a kid … you don’t know anything about sexuality yet. You’re just a kid.”
“I am trying to understand it myself, and please don’t lump me into that whole [group],” Lopez added. “I’m kind of blown away too. Look, I’m never one to tell anyone how to parent their kids obviously and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can’t go wrong but at the same time, my God, if you’re 3 years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way or you think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make this determination then, well, OK, then you’re going to a boy or a girl, whatever the case may be … It’s sort of alarming and my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later on.”
Suddenly, this week, liberals discovered the interview and went crazy to attack the young actor.
I won’t bother reposing any of the idiotic attacks against Lopez for his entirely logical ideas on the mental illness of transgenderism.
But suffice to say that only a few hours went by and Lopez was groveling before the hate-mongers and mental cases on the left who were calling for his head. Before the day was done, Lopez was falling all over himself to apologize for his “ignorant remarks.”
According to Daily Caller:
Lopez appeared on The Candace Owens Show on June 23rd and said it was “dangerous” for parents to let their kids choose what gender they are at three years old. Now, in a statement to NBC, he called his comments “ignorant and insensitive.”
“I have been and always will be an ardent supporter of the LGBTQ community, and I am going to use this opportunity to better educate myself,” Lopez told NBC. “Moving forward I will be more informed and thoughtful.”
It is sad to see Lopez backing down like this.
Instead of apologizing he should be suggesting that parents who push their kids into transgenderism should be prosecuted, not celebrated.
