Megan Fox’s Son Wore an Elsa Costume, and the Internet Couldn’t Handle It
People sure get bent out of shape when little boys buck traditional gender norms. Megan Fox has three little boys. Sometimes the oldest one wears dresses–specifically Elsa costumes from Frozen–and that makes strangers on the Internet very angry.
Fox married actor Brian Austin Green–who is mostly famous from Beverly Hills 90210 in the 90s but grew up to be super hot on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Together they have three children. Noah is 4, Bodhi is 3, and Journey is the baby.
Fox recently posted a photo of her three children to Instagram.
Mostly one might look at that photo and think, “Aww, cute babies!” A lot of assholes, however, noticed 4-year-old Noah is wearing an Elsa dress and accused Fox of “perverting” her son.
Homophobes in Fox’s Instagram comments.
“Another Hollywood weirdo mom… so disgusting you allow your son to wear princess dresses,” one commenter snarked, according to This Is Insider.
“I JUST THINK IS NOT A GOOD IDEA…BOYS LEARN VERY QUICKLY AT THAT AGE AND CAN START THINKING IT’S OK,” another wrote.
It is OK for boys to think that wearing dresses is OK. Boys can wear dresses. It’s fine.
“She definitely is determining that they be girly with those dresses and haircuts, kids don’t decide they want long hair,” said some Internet rando.
Let’s have a quick show of hands: Who knows a four-year-old with strong opinions about their hair and clothes? I sure do. Some of us are probably living with them.
Fox has mentioned in interviews that he likes to wear dresses sometimes, and she doesn’t care. Once in a while Bodhi wears them too.
Dresses are just tubes of fabric. They’re not going to unmake the universe or affect someone’s gender or sexual orientation. Fox and Green let their little boy wear dresses. That’s not weird, it’s logical. It’d be weirder to say he couldn’t wear dresses.
“You were born with a penis, therefore your fabric garments must all be sewn into two tubes, not one tube. Never one tube! Or God will smite the world with a flood.”
Megan Fox’s son is not the only 4-year-old boy to wear an Elsa dress. Kids love Frozen! Charlize Theron’s son also wore an Elsa dress out in public, and people also attacked her for “feminizing” and “degrading” her son.
Fox and Green have adorable children. They’re raising their kids well, and the world is not going to end if a 4-year-old wears a dress.
