Mario Lopez became the latest target of the media and leftist organizations for saying parents should hesitate before declaring their 3-year-old children are “transgender” merely because they say they’re “feeling a certain way” or think they’re “a boy or a girl. … When you’re a kid … you don’t know anything about sexuality yet. You’re just a kid.” On Wednesday Lopez apologized for his “ignorant and insensitive” comments after GLAAD, a non-governmental media-monitoring organization founded by LGBT people in the media, contacted his employer to attempt to get him fired. -GEG

Mario Lopez on Wednesday apologized for his “ignorant and insensitive” comments suggesting parents should not declare their 3-year-olds “transgender” just because they say they’re “feeling a certain way” or think they’re “a boy or a girl or whatever.”

From USA Today:

In a statement issued to USA TODAY Wednesday, through his rep Lisa Perkins, the TV host and “Saved by the Bell” alum said: “The comments I made were ignorant and insensitive, and I now have a deeper understanding of how hurtful they were. 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.”

“Moving forward,” he added, “I will be more informed and thoughtful.”

Here was Lopez’s original comments:

“I am trying to understand it myself, and please don’t lump me into that whole [group],” Lopez responded. “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.”

He added, “When you’re a kid … you don’t know anything about sexuality yet. You’re just a kid.”

GLAAD appears to have contacted his employer in an attempt to get him fired:

We spoke with Extra and it is clear that the showrunners do not support or share his view. They will address this issue on the show tonight. Lopez clearly needs a primer on trans issues. We reached out to his team to see if and how he will correct the record.— GLAAD (@glaad) July 31, 2019

How dare Mario Lopez be so insensitive. My 3 year old identifies as a dinosaur and being the woke parent that I am, I’ve already scheduled an appointment with a palaeontologist so I know what to feed him.
