Initially an obscure influencer, Lopez’s image became a meme after her appearance on the podcast “Whatever,” a platform that delves into debates around feminism, traditional values, and gender roles. Discussing the challenges of modern dating, Lopez expresses worries about the diminishing presence of masculinity in society.

The transgender influencer believes that some men expect a princess treatment in relationships, advocating for a more balanced dynamic. She encourages men to contribute equally, both emotionally and financially, in relationships.

Addressing the generational gap on transgender issues, Lopez emphasizes the need for patience and understanding from both sides. She calls for respect and love, even if full understanding may not be present.
