Mario Lopez faces backlash for ignorant comments on raising transgender kids

Mario Lopez has suggested that kids as young as three shouldn’t be allowed to decide their gender. Lopez made the comments on conservative YouTube host Candace Owens’ show back in June. Since then he has retracted the comments.

What a shock.... Leftie elitists dont like it when one of "their own" strays from the script [even though he's pretty conservative and private normally] ......He's 100% right, 3 year olds cant decide their gender, period. My 4 year old sometimes thinks she's Peppa pig and she has an imaginary friend named Denis. Im not going to help her change her gender, that's dumb and borderline child abuse.

My son is super confused right now. He identifies as SpiderMan, SuperMan, BatMan and Hulk. I can’t wait for for when he turns 4 and can make a sound decision on his true identity.

There is no such thing as “ transgenderism.” These people may think they’re the other sex but that doesn’t make it so.

How dare someone say children are too young to make serious decisions. Should we let them smoke, drink, and screw too?

His opinion was scientifically correct, while his apology was pathetic. Puberty blockers don't block the penile development gene activation which activates at around 11 regardless of puberty, meaning hormone imbalance during that age can lead to a micropenis which isn't reversible. PMC3822343 is a good showcase of hormone influence. That leads into the next problem, if the child changes their mind on transitioning and you left them with a micropenis, Jazz Jennings as example and many others albeit she decided to go through with it, you are one in the moral toilet of having to explain it to the child as a mad parent. To add upon that, there's idiots who study scientific studies on grey/white matter ratios to confirm whether a person is truly transgender or has identity disorder like gender fluids, and as usual these idiots who tout education and reading journals don't have a basis or mental capacity to grasp one thing and that's that matter ratios change throughout life and the change differs from person to person which again plunges scientific accuracy in identifying whether someone is safe to transition pre-adulthood into the trashcan. On the other hand, never has there been proof of hormone treatment post-teenage years increasing penis size which solidifies one of the irreversible factors in fucking with kids pre-adulthood on these terms. The trans community is unfortunately now represented and defended by complete idiots who don't give a crap about those who change minds and even find the potential of transgenders changing minds blasphemous to "the greater good" which is twisted corrupt anti-scientific and evil mentality to say the least. Science still doesn't know shit and things need to be walked with full caution, especially with underage people.

If your raising or pushing your kids to be transgender under the age of 10 you deserve to be hung from a tree.

when my god son was three he had a invisible friend that was a skeleton. Excuse me if that kind of thinking doesn't fill me with confidence, that he was able to make life changing decision at that age.
