Singer Ne-Yo Refuses To Be Canceled Over Gender Remarks

Grammy-winning artist Ne-Yo is standing up to the cancel mob over remarks he made during an interview concerning kids, parents, and gender transitioning.

Per Deadline, here is what he said:

While professing his love for the LGBTQ community, he said, “I feel like the parents have almost forgotten what the role of a parent is,” he began. “If your little boy comes up to you and says, ‘Daddy I wanna be a girl,’ you just let him rock with that?”

Ne-Yo added, “Where did he get that? If you let this 5-year-old little boy eat candy all day, he’s gonna do that. Like, when did it become a good idea to let a 5-year-old, a 6-year-old, a 12-year-old make a life-changing decision?

“When did that happen? Like, I don’t understand that.”

The three-time Grammy winner, age 43, said that he comes from “an era” where a “man was a man and a woman was a woman.”

“There was two genders and that’s just how I rocked,” he said. “You could identify as a goldfish if you feel like, that ain’t my business. It becomes my business when you try to make me play the game.

“I’m not gonna call you a goldfish.”

I don’t know much about Ne-Yo and his music isn’t my cup of tea. HOWEVER, the man is absolutely spot on here. The parents who coddle their children’s whims and allow evil cretins in the medical industry to shove drugs into their children and hack them to pieces to remake their bodies into something else in the name of a dangerous life-altering trend need to be horsewhipped.  

Of course, all the folks hugely invested in shoving the gender transition trend down our throats were aghast. How DARE HE??!! And the cancel mobs knives came out. And then, suddenly, he backtracked and issued an apology. 

Or did he? On the heels of his apology, many who were cheering his realistic stance on parents, children and gender transition issues were disappointed. 

The fundamental problem here is that our culture has destroyed the virtue of standing by your beliefs. It’s important to note that Ne-Yo isn’t required to speak out on political issues. The conservative thirst for cultural representation doesn’t mean that celebrities, regardless of their beliefs, must share their opinions.

But here’s the thing: If you do speak out, you better mean it. And today, the virtue of saying what you mean is dead.

One of two things can be true here. Either Ne-Yo meant what he said during his interview, in which case his apology was empty and meaningless, or he didn’t mean what he said during his interview, in which case his words were empty and meaningless.

That sentiment can be applied to every single person whether a celebrity, politician, or average Joe Schmoe who doesn’t stand firm on their beliefs when the cancel culture mob comes after them. J.K. Rowling is a prime example of someone who continues to stand firm on her beliefs regarding genders and has the trans activists in a continual froth over her refusal to bow to their demands. 

Well, Ne-Yo issued a direct statement yesterday evening about this mess. Guess what? The apology above wasn’t his. It was his publicist/team who issued that mea culpa statement. Ne-Yo was having NONE of that. 

Oh to have been a fly on the wall for the conversation between Ne-Yo and his publicist. That said, he’s once again correct. In this country we ALL have the right to our own opinion. And just because someone else disagrees with you does not mean that A. that opinion is harmful, B. that opinion is wrong, and C. a person isn’t allowed to have a different opinion. 

Yet that is where the trans activists stand. Their belief is the only acceptable one. They are right and everyone else is wrong. 

“You just need to educate yourself more on what it means for children to have gender dysphoria and what the medical and psychological professionals are saying about what is the best way to go forth with these children,” one commenter wrote.

So Ne-Yo is in the wrong because he believes that children shouldn’t be in charge of making dangerous life-altering decisions? He’s wrong to be concerned that parents have abdicated their responsibilities towards their children? That’s what the trans activists believe. 

The current mode of thinking is that if a child announces she wants to be a boy or vice/versa, then the parents and medical “professionals” swing into action without taking into consideration the child’s mental state. Ne-Yo has a much more realistic take on the matter. 

“If one of my 7 kids were to decide that he or she wanted to be something other than what they were born as, once they’re old enough and mature enough to make that decision… so be it. Not gonna love em’ any less … But this isn’t even a discussion until they are mentally mature enough to have such a discussion.”
