All kids like to dress-up, right? They’ll run around the house–or even ask to go the the supermarket–wearing a princess dress, Batman costume, crowns, swords, face-paint…parents of any normal child have seen it all.
But what about when your little girl wants to dress like a boy? Or what if your little boy wants to wear girls clothing? This mom says her toddler son has always had a “preference for pretty,” because he lives in a house with a bunch of female cousins, he was drawn to wearing princess tiara’s, ballerina dresses and nail polish.
In the case of Shiloh (pictured above), mom Angelina Jolie defends her four-year-old daughter’s style choices. “I think she (Shiloh) is fascinating, the choices she is making. And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting,” she told Reuters on Saturday. Angelina also told Vanity Fair: “Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes 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…I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around.”
