Mario Lopez, after some comments he recently made in an interview on The Candace Owens Show faces an online counter-attack. When asked for his opinion on how parents should react to children whose gender expression is different from the traditional binary representation for boys and girls, Lopez said it was "dangerous" and "alarming" to believe children when they tell you who they are.  According to Yahoo Owens started the conversation with the example of actress Charlize Theron, who publicly talked about following her child Jackson's clues as to which gender pronouns she uses as a family. Owens put this kind of parenting as a "strange trend" out of Hollywood, and then invited Lopez to share his thoughts.
"I'm blown too," said Lopez. "Look, I'm never one to tell someone how to raise their kids obviously, and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can not go wrong, but at the same time, my God, when you're three years old old and you say you feel in a certain way or you think you are a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, i just think it is dangerous as a parent to make that decision then go you're going to be a boy or a girl, whatever the case … It's kind of alarming and my goodness, I'm just thinking of the effects later. "
Lopez mistakenly mistook the gender identity topic for sexuality and said : "If you're a kid … you do not know anything about sexuality, you're just a kid."
He would not be the first to equate the two issues, anti-LGBT voices often do just that, to point out that issues of Gender expression and the various types of relationships are not "age-appropriate." For small children.
What Lopez did not recognize, however, is how dangerous it can be for trans- and gender-inappropriate children not to speak How They Feel, Maintaining Silence and Unrest Stigmatization, which can negatively impact mental health and well-being: studies have shown that transsexuals statistically consider or attempt suicide more often.
In the same interview Lopez also commented on the #Metoo movement and suggested that a culture that believes victims of abuse could encourage women to use false accusations as a form of abuse To use revenge. "God forbid you have a son out there, and a girl may have a certain attitude toward a situation – dismiss, hurt, whatever, and feel vengeful and just decide to tell a story that is not really true Come back and hurt that person, "he said, recycling another popular misconception that a man's reputation is more important than a woman's safety.
