“I was a virgin when we met, so we didn’t go the whole way until after we’d moved in together, but on that first night we did share the same bed.

“He told me that he’d had five sexual partners before we met.”

The couple have had two kids; Edolie, five, and Ender, two.

Jeremy, who is a security officer, said: “I could tell immediately that Shakeela was different from anyone I’d anyone I’d met before.

“She has always been so loyal and faithful to me.

“We love to communicate through music and if we have a little tiff we can never stay mad at each other for long.

“We don’t bicker, we sleep in the same bed and enjoy each other’s company.

“I hope our story can encourage others not to lose hope with online dating.”

Mario Lopez Says It’s ‘Dangerous’ for Parents to Support Young Transgender Kids

Mario Lopez is facing online backlash following some comments he made in a recent interview on The Candace Owens Show. When asked his opinion on how parents should respond to children whose gender expression varies from the traditional boy/girl binary, Lopez stated that he personally believes it is “dangerous” and “alarming” to believe children when they tell you who they are.

“I’m kind of blown away too,” Lopez said. “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 cant go wrong but at the same time, my God, if you’re three years old and youre 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 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 on.”

Lopez went on to erroneously conflate the conversation topic of gender identity with sexuality, saying: “When you’re a kid … you don’t know anything about sexuality yet. You’re just a kid.”

He wouldn’t be the first person to equate the two subjects; anti-LGBT voices often do just that in order to suggest that issues relating to gender expression and different kinds of relationships aren’t “age appropriate” for young children.

What Lopez failed to acknowledge, though, is just how dangerous it can be for trans and gender non-conforming children to not talk about how they feel, as it perpetuates the silence and stigma which can negatively affect their mental health and wellbeing: Studies have shown that trans teenagers are statistically far more likely to consider or attempt suicide.

In the same interview, Lopez also commented on the #MeToo movement, suggesting that a culture that believes victims of abuse could encourage women to use false accusations as a form of revenge. “God forbid you have a son out there and a girl may have felt a certain way about a situation dismissed, hurt, whatever, and is feeling vengeful and just decides to tell a certain story that’s not even exactly true, come back and hurt that individual,” he said, recycling another popular fallacy that a man’s reputation is more important than a woman’s safety.

Yikes, Mario Lopez.
