Okay, so I realize that I’m stooping to a new low here with a gossip post, but I really do think it’s relevant to the topic of this blog. Any of you that have seen recent pictures of Brad and Angelina’s first biological child, Shiloh, would agree that they are breeding a beautiful little gender queer celebrity. According to Jolie, Shiloh dresses “like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes (regular) suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”(Full article here: http://www.queerty.com/if-angelina-jolie-says-daughter-shiloh-wants-to-be-a-boy-can-the-tabloids-20100628/#ixzz0sFbTzhwZ
Honestly, I’m not a huge Brangelina fan, but I have to give her props for being so open to how her daughter wants to identify. The truth is, at age 4, kids are exploring themselves and the world around them, and if a girl wants to dress like a guy, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything significant. Then again, it could. But who cares? Good for Angelina for being so relaxed with it.
Here are some pics of the adorable little thang:
Just saying, that if I end up with a kid as adorable and gender bending as Shiloh, I will let he/she/ze wear WHATEVER they want!
