Mario Lopez is not known for voicing his social and political views. And the one time he does it, he almost gets “canceled” by mass media. Why? Because he dared to voice concerns regarding children being switched genders. Indeed, the 45-year old father of three, who is mostly known for being that good looking guy who hosts celeb gossip shows, found himself the object of celeb gossip … and extreme outrage.
The anger began when an interview that took place last month resurfaced in mainstream media, where Lopez dared to say that three-year-old children were too young to choose their gender. The two-minute bit from a forty-minute long interview was enough to cause a good-old-fashioned mainstream-media-blitz-of-outrage, followed by threats of being “canceled”. Yup, he committed thoughtcrime and he had to pay for it.
At the very least, he had to be made an example.
Last June, Mario Lopez took part in an interview with conservative figure Candace Owens where they discussed various topics. Lopez began by describing his philosophy revolving around the “five F’s”: Family, faith, food, fitness, and fun. He then added that he had trouble understanding why being open about topics such as faith or family values was now heavily frowned upon, especially in Hollywood. Little did he know that he was about to get heavily frowned upon a few weeks later.
During the interview, Owens asked Lopez about the “weird trend in Hollywood” of celebrities changing the gender of their children. As an example, she cited actress Charlize Theron.
“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 that determination then — ‘Okay, well 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.
I think that parents need to allow kids to be kids but at the same time you got to be the adult in the situation and pause with that. I think the formative years is when you start having those discussions”.
So Lopez believes that 3-year-old children are too young to make a life-altering decision such as rejecting the gender they were born with. Wow, such a controversial statement. How dare he say something that makes perfect sense?
I’ll go out on a limb here and say that, despite intense mass media propaganda, most people agree with his opinion. Anyone who spent any time with toddlers knows that their lives revolve around eating chicken nuggets and actively finding new ways of hurting themselves. They are not cognitively ready to make this kind of decision. They’re not even cognitively ready to tie their own shoe yet.
However, voicing this kind of opinion is now a thoughtcrime. You can’t say it.
The response to Lopez’s comments was intense, organized and immediately picked up by mass media for full propagation. It was a typical response to anything that goes against the current social engineering agenda. Of course, Lopez’s career was threatened of being “canceled” – the cool word that is now used to describe the immediate destruction of a person’s career for committing thoughtcrime.
The media monitoring organization GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) sent PEOPLE magazine this statement:
“Medical and psychological experts, and parents of children who are transgender, have long discredited the ideas that Mario Lopez shared last month. The real ‘dangerous action’ is when someone with a public platform uses bad science to speak against a marginalized and vulnerable group of children. 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.”
In short, GLAAD contacted Lopez’s employers, pushed for his “reeducation” and demanded an apology.
Queer Eye star Karamo Brown tweeted:
“I’m disappointed to read @MarioLopezExtra comments about parent’s who support their child’s openness about their gender identity. As a social worker I am trained to identify abuse or neglect of a child. Healthy & safe dialogue w/ kids is neither abusive, neglectful or “dangerous.”
Once again, the word “dangerous” is used. He added:
“I don’t think @MarioLopezExtra should be ‘canceled’. But I do believe he should be given the opportunity to learn why his comments are harmful to trans youth and their parents. Mario, I’m ready to talk when you are.”
Although Brown wrote that he didn’t think that Lopez should be “canceled” – the idea was thrown out there as a veiled threat.
Songwriter and The Guardian writer Holly Figueroa O’Reilly told essentially told Lopez to STFU.
“Of our 5 kids, 2 are queer. They both came out in their early teens but we knew who they were way, way before then.
Parents can tell the different between a 3 year old who pretends to be another gender for fun and one who feels they are living in the wrong body. STFU Mario Lopez”
Wade Davis – an ex-NFL player who is now an “activist”, VP of inclusion at Netflix and a “feminist” told Lopez to read. He did not specify what to read, though. Probably propaganda.
#MarioLopez should read more — being #Trans is about IDENTITY not sex. And trans folks understand that they are being treated differently from how they identity btw the ages of 3 & 5 & adults force gender on kids from birth. @MarioLopezExtra when all else fails — READ
And there were lots of tweets calling for the end of his career.
Probably fearing the “cancellation” of his career, Mario Lopez promptly issued an apology for his “ignorant comments”.
“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 I will be more informed and thoughtful.”
In George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four the word “thoughtcrime” describes a person’s politically unorthodox thoughts, such as unspoken beliefs and doubts that contradict the tenets of Ingsoc (English Socialism). The Thinkpol (Thought Police) are responsible for the detection and elimination of thoughtcrime, and for the social control of the masses using audio-visual surveillance and offender profiling.
We are living it now. In a country where freedom of speech is supposedly guaranteed by the constitution, people who dare to go against the radical social engineering agenda are immediately shunned and attacked. Further non-compliance can easily lead to being “canceled” and this can all happen in a matter of hours. Mario Lopez’s comments were not hateful nor incendiary, they were his personal views as a parent of three children.
Those who attacked him like to use words such as “medical experts” to justify their views. However, these “experts” are funded by the wider agenda.
The Wider Agenda
There’s a worrying trend happening now and it doesn’t only involve parents dressing up their children in clothing of the opposite sex. Some parents are actually giving their children hormones and puberty-blocking drugs to facilitate sex change. In the UK, some government-funded NHS clinics (such as the Tavistock Centre) have been prescribing hypothalamic blockers to children as young as nine.
The parents who give children powerful drugs and hormones that modify their body chemistry is not only reckless, but it also borders on child abuse. They are the ones who should be deemed “dangerous”, not Mario Lopez talking in a YouTube video.
