Actor Mario Lopez, famous for his role on Saved by the Bell back in the 90’s, triggered gender identity folks. During an interview with Candace Owens, he claimed that actress Charlize Theron was endangering her child by allowing the child to choose it’s gender at the ripe age of Three. Because that’s when all important decisions should be made…
“My God, 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 on.”
Theron thinks she is doing right by her children, just look at her take on the idea that her adopted son is actually a girl.
“Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,’ Charlize agrees, briskly. ‘Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’
‘So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive.
‘They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.
‘My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be.
‘And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.’
She laughs: ‘You can blame my mom for the fact I don’t know any better! You know, I grew up in a country where people lived with half-truths and lies and whispers and nobody said anything outright, and I was raised very specifically not to be like that.
‘I was taught by my mom that you have to speak up; you have to be able to know that, when this life is over, you’ll have lived the truth you’re comfortable with, and that nothing negative can come from that.”

Liberals on Social Media were, of course, angry at Lopez. They feel Theron should be able to mess up her child’s life if she wants without criticism.
“I’m glad things are coming out into the open … so I know who to never eff with again — like [Mario Lopez] thinking he knows ANYTHING and going on a prejudiced show with an idiot host and criticizing another parent on their child transitioning. Gross. What gives you the right?” said one Twitter user.
“Mario Lopez is canceled, just for appearing on her show let alone what he actually said …” said another user.
“Mario Lopez should mind his business and worry about his own children. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, even wrong ones. But criticizing someone’s parenting publicly crosses a line. If a child isn’t being abused, observe quietly,” said another.”
This poor kid was three when he unknowingly made that life choice. Theron should have told the child that he is a boy, as she is the parent. He was likely just admiring his mom and thought he wanted to be more like her. This is not empowering behavior, this is just bad parenting. Lopez is right, the child could end up with big problems later in life all because his mom wanted to be trendy.
