Ne-Yo spoke common sense truth, but his comments were called controversial.
Ne-Yo dared buck the Leftist insanity by asking, [pp] “When is it a good idea to let kids make life-changing decisions for themselves?” Leftists lost their minds over the notion that a grown-ass man would criticize parents who encourage their children who question their gender identity.
This is what @NeYoCompound decided to apologize for.
Ne-Yo, you were absolutely right. You know it. We all know it.pic.twitter.com/rw0lgPf22m

What Ne-Yo said and the host echoed reflect how the bulk of Americans feel about the subject of gender identity with children. Children have parents for a reason; because kids are stupid.
Kids are stupid because they are young and impressionable. They haven’t lived life and have no idea of the consequences of their decisions. Without parental supervision most children would die within a year. This is why even animal mothers showcase a protective nature of their young. And why good human parents do the same. Sadly for Leftists, they suck at parenting.
Ne-Yo’s sage advice about not letting children make life decisions themselves was met with vitriol from the Left. The subject made far too much sense for the morons fringe. Still, an apology was issued on Sunday (August 6) by Neyo publicity team.
Wrong move, as I said on my radio show about this. Never apologize for what you truly believe. That’s an attack on oneself. Stand up for your beliefs. No. Matter. What. And the very next day, that’s what Ne-Yo did.
In his Instagram post, he dismissed the comments from his publicity team.
“This s### is getting out of hand,” he wrote on Instagram. “FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH. I WILL NOT BE BULLIED INTO APOLOGIZING FOR HAVING AN OPINION. AGREEING TO DISAGREE IS NOT A DECLARATION OF WAR.”
Now, the REALLY big deal about what Ne-Yo said
The 43-year-old artist did not approve of allowing kids to reject the gender of their birth. He added that he “will never be OK with allowing a child to make a decision that is “detrimental to their life.”
“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,” he wrote.
“Not gonna love em’ any less. Daddy is still Daddy and he loves you regardless. But this isn’t even a discussion until they are MENTALLY MATURE ENOUGH to have such a discussion.”
But the one thing you should note is his reference. It comes at the 1:30 mark of the first video where Ne-Yo references something he heard. He says,
“I can’t take credit for it, but I heard somebody say, “If your son comes to you and says, ‘I want to be a girl’, ask your son, ‘What is a girl?”
Ne-Yo referenced Matt Walsh:
Kudos to Matt Walsh for delivering sanity to the insanity of Leftism.
I honestly believe that even Dr. Phil got educated by Walsh during this segment. But let’s pivot back to the bigger deal.
Yes folks, even pop culture entertainers hear us. Who would have ever believed that NeYo would reference Matt Walsh? He may not have remembered where he heard it, but it’s that he remembered it that’s important.
