“If you’re three years old, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make this determination then,” Lopez said on the show. “It’s sort of alarming, and my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later.”
Lopez said that parents need to “be the adult in the situation” when their children do what children usually do: Say confusing things about their own identity.
It’s not shocking but plenty of naysayers took to social media to blast Lopez because of his stance. He responded via Yahoo News as The Daily Wire presents.
“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.”
“When you’re a kid … you don’t know anything about sexuality yet. You’re just a kid,” he added.
