Megan Fox is currently under attack for posting a ‘weird’ picture of her two children online. The stunning actress uploaded the photo in which her sons, five-year-old Noah and four-year-old Bodhi, are sitting side by side. They’re both clad in cute wet suits and look as happy as two kids at the beach can be. However, haters took issue with the length of the boys’ hair, making fun of how effeminate the boys look.
One wouldn’t expect to find comments like these in this day and age, but the Internet has proven this idea wrong. Megan’s picture has been gathering comments like “lol…poor things look like little girls.”
Another user wrote, “I’m pretty sure she encourages them to be like girls or something, she dresses them like girls for godsakes, look it up, and I’m not even surprised it’s just how Hollywood people are a little weird.”
Megan’s parenting skills are being called weird and unusual, even though long hair on boys isn’t that unusual. There’s Dylan Sprouse, who flaunts his long blond locks everywhere and doesn’t get any hate on it. Or even Jason Momoa, whose straggly long hair has been the object of fantasy everywhere. It just seems Megan struck a nerve with a particular niche of commenters.
“Another damn celeb pushing this trans / genderless crap,” someone commented, hinting that Megan was somehow pursuing a social agenda with her sons’ hair. Another one chose to sign off with their stamp of disapproval by commenting, “It’s just that girls should look like that, girls! And boys like boys.”
Some in favor commented that the fact that negative comments have cropped up goes to show how comfortable haters are behind an anonymous screen.
A handful of positive comments have also popped up. One user commented, saying, “Those kids are happy and enjoying their lives. And fortunately for them, neither them or their mother have to listen to your closed minded ideas of gender norms,” while another added, writing, “ya’ll on here saying negative things need to check yourself. hair does not define sex (which by the way is different then [sic] gender).”
Sadly, this isn’t the first time the actress has been attacked on her parenting. She has previously been accused of forcing her son to dress in girls’ clothing, when she was spotted walking out with her kids who wore colorful leggings and patterned dresses. People on Twitter lashed out, writing that she was forcing her kids to adopt identities they didn’t want to. However, other commenters simply suggested that she was just letting them enjoy a non-binary lifestyle and make their own choices.
Megan hasn’t responded to the criticism yet. She generally doesn’t respond to negative comments, especially when they pertain to her kids. However, her husband, Brian Austin Green, has spoken up in the past. He lets people know when he’s tired of their rude assumptions about his children!
He once spoke up during a Facebook Live session, saying that he didn’t care what his son was wearing as long as he was happy. He also said that if people chose not to agree with his son’s sense of style, that wasn’t something he cared about.
“He’s not harming anyone wearing a dress. So if he wants to wear a dress, good on him,” the irate dad said.
