Ne-Yo: When Did it Become OK for a 12-Year-Old Boy to Say He Wants to Be a Girl? (Part 3)

Ne-Yo has talked about how "kids today" think differently than he did when he was growing up. He has also talked about the controversial subject of changing genders. Ne-Yo told Gloria Velez what he thought in a recent chat with VladTV.
During the interview, which was later shown on VladTV on Saturday (August 5), the "Miss Independent" singer said that he doesn't think kids should be able to do what he called "choosing their genders."
If your little boy comes up to you and says, ‘Daddy I wanna be a girl,’ you just let him rock with that? Where did he get that? If you let this five-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 get that. I don’t understand that.- Ne-Yo
Velez then talked about the process of gender transitioning. She said she didn't agree with puberty blockers or "cutting off his pee-pee," to which Ne-Yo answered, "He can't drive a car, but he can decide to change his sex?"
I have no problem with LBGT. I have no problem with nobody, okay? Love who you love, do what you do. I just personally come from an era where a man was a man and a woman was a woman. And there was two genders and that's just how I rocked.- Ne-Yo
You could identify as a goldfish if you feel like, I don't care, 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. But you wanna be a goldfish, you be a goldfish.- Ne-Yo
Gender-affirming care refers to medical, psychological, and social support that aims to help transgender and gender-diverse individuals align their physical bodies and lived experiences with their gender identity. This type of care is focused on improving the overall well-being and mental health of individuals by providing interventions that help reduce gender dysphoria (distress or discomfort experienced due to the incongruence between one's gender identity and assigned sex at birth).
Ne-Yo was quickly attacked on social media after the videos came out. He later said the same thing in an Instagram comment that Velez shared on Twitter.
1st and foremost, I CONDEMN NO ONE. Who am I to condemn anybody? Your life, your kids, your choice. I was asked a question and I answered it. My opinion is mine. I'm not asking anybody to agree with me nor am I telling you what you can and cannot do with your children. I stated my opinion on a matter and that's that.- Ne-Yo
Why should I care if my opinion upsets you when you don't care if yours upsets anyone? Opinions aren't special. We all have one. People voice them regularly whether they're asked or not. I was actually asked mine. Agreeing to disagree is not a declaration of war.- Ne-Yo
Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. He gained prominence in the mid-2000s with his R&B and pop music. Ne-Yo is known for his smooth vocals, catchy melodies, and songwriting skills. Some of his popular songs include "So Sick," "Closer," "Miss Independent," "Because of You," and "Let Me Love You."
In addition to his solo music career, Ne-Yo has also written songs for other artists, contributing to hits in various genres. He has received several awards and accolades for his work in the music industry, and his contributions have had a significant impact on contemporary R&B and pop music.

Conclusion

In a new interview, Ne-Yo talked about how to raise transgender children and asked if kids should be allowed to get care that fits their gender identity. During an interview with Gloria Velez for VladTV, the father of seven talked about how people think about gender today. He said that parents have "forgotten what the role of a parent is."Late Saturday night, Ne-Yo reacted to news stories that said he "condemns" parents who support and let their children get gender-affirming care.
