“I am trying to understand it myself, and please don’t lump me into that whole [group],” Lopez answered, according to Yahoo! News. “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 be 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.”
The Twitter account for Human Rights Campaign reacted, “Mario Lopez’s comments are dangerous to the safety and well-being of LGBTQ youth, especially trans children who deserve to be loved and accepted for who they are.”
Wow. So it’s DANGEROUS to espouse your views? As in PHYSICALLY dangerous? Like a child abuser or a child molester?
Should we pass laws preventing people from saying toddlers don’t know if they’re transgender, however you define (or whether you accept) the concept of transgender? Should people like Mario Lopez be jailed, if convicted, just as child abusers are?
So Mario Lopez is not free to state his view that 3 year olds don’t know if they’re transgendered? Because if he does state those views, he’s a physical threat to the well-being of innocent children?
What about sexual orientation? Are you cruel and inhuman if you suggest a 3 year old doesn’t know that he’s gay or lesbian? To say it’s ridiculous to suggest a 3 year old knows his or her future sexual orientation means you’re against people who are gay? Insane!
If that isn’t an attack on the First Amendment, I don’t know how much clearer they can get. Now do you see why I call them Communists and totalitarians?
I hardly know what to say, think or write any longer. Our culture has become a literal mental hospital. We have put the worst elements in charge of telling us how to think. And we’re a single election away from giving them absolute rule over us.
