Megan Fox is the latest celebrity mom in the internet buzz crosshairs. On Monday (July 31) the actress posted a very cute collage of her family to Instagram, and it included a photo of her son (Noah) wearing a Frozen-themed dress. To be clear, this isn’t a big deal at all: It’s actually amazing Fox is letting her son express himself however he pleases—constricting gender norms, be damned. The concept of gender fluidity isn’t anything new; many parents have the same mind-set that Fox does and give their children freedom to define who they are on their own terms.
But, of course, some of Fox’s Instagram followers had nasty things to say about this. “No values. No morals. Promoting gay perversion. Destruction of traditional gender roles lead to a totalitarian society granting government officials more power,” one user commented. Someone else quipped, “It is not okay for a boy to walk around in their mother’s heels. Just like it’s NOT okay for a child to be disrespectful. So, again that’s when it’s the parent’s job to instruct the child in the RIGHT way.”
Thankfully, many of Fox’s followers echoed this. “Megan’s boys look just perfect. Leave her alone,” a user replied. “Live let live man! kid is happy? that all it matters…everyone is ok with it,” another person wrote.
