Rosie is A-OK with Shiloh wearing boys’ swimming trunks! Are YOU?

A recent photo of 4-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt wearing boys swim trunks while swimming with her siblings in Berkley, Calif., sparked a frenzy of opinions on whether Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s first biological daughter ought to be dressing like the opposite sex. The latest person to weigh in on Shiloh’s tomboyish ways is Rosie’ O’Donnell, who when asked on her blog “Do U think Shiloh Pitt should be allowed to wear boy’s swimming trunks in public pool?” gave an emphatic “yes.”

Shiloh doesn’t seem to care what people, celeb or otherwise, have to say about her outfits. As mom Angelina told Vanity Fair last month, Shiloh “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.”

Maybe sis Zahara opts for frilly dresses, but Shiloh seems to want to stick to her boyish style and dress like dad Brad Pitt, and mom Angelina isn’t interested in forcing her to do anything she doesn’t want to do. “It’s not my choice.,” Angelina told Grazia. “I have a very strong-willed four-year-old girl, who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is. I think people think kids should be a certain way, but I feel they should wear what they feel like wearing and they should express themselves. Shiloh cried one night and said, ‘Please cut my hair off. I don’t want to have long hair.’ I’m not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should.”
