  • Mario Lopez Issues Apology for Comments About Transgender Children

Radio host and father of three Mario Lopez is facing criticism for comments he made about young transgender children and the emotional "repercussions" they could face later on in life. Lopez did not use the word apologize in his statement but said that he is "going to use this opportunity to better educate myself" and that "moving forward I will be more informed and thoughtful". "I think if you come from a place of love, you really can't go wrong", he started out.

During the interview with Owens, Lopez also made the mistake of confusing gender identity, which he disparaged in his initial comments, with sexual orientation, saying that as a child "you don't know anything about sexuality yet".

During his sit-down with Owens, Mario Lopez described the "trend" of children choosing their gender "weird".

"I am trying to understand it myself, and please don't lump me into that", Mr. Lopez responded.

There are several problems with what Owens and Lopez said, including that they very clearly had no idea what they were talking about and instead slammed parents who were understanding of children exploring their gender identity.

He outraged many when he told Owens on her PragerU YouTube show that, like Owens, he is "blown away" when parents tolerate very young children who make gender determinations that early.

"If you're three 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 risky 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", Lopez continued. "You're just a kid", he added.

He added, "When you're a kid ... you don't know anything about sexuality yet". Karamo Brown of "Queer Eye" also weighed in: "I'm disappointed to read @MarioLopezExtra comments about parent's who support their child's [openness] about their gender identity".

Owens said that parents who supported their trans kids were guilty of "narcissism" and "virtue-signalling".

Other public figures, such as "Queer Eye" star Karamo Brown and former National Football League player Wade Davis, in addition to the Human Rights Campaign, also took to Twitter to criticize Lopez.

One whistleblower, a National Health Service (NHS) psychologist who'd previously worked at Britain's only child gender clinic, warned that doctors were anxious about being labeled "transphobic" if they looked too deeply into each case to find possible psychological reasons, including past abuse, which might explain a child's feelings. Mario, I'm ready to talk when you are'.

In the interview, Owens herself cast the issue as a "scary trend coming out of Hollywood right now", a framing that Lopez acceded to in his comments.
