Do Brad & Angelina Want To Turn Shiloh Into A Boy?

Posted Mon, January 4, 2010 3:46pm EDT 10,850 Article Views

Brangelina—what are you doing to poor Shiloh Jolie-Pitt?

Your 3 1/2-year-old daughter is getting dressed in boys clothes so often by you that the New York Post even described her today as your “son.” And no wonder. She was photographed in daddy Brad Pitt‘s arms, heading in to the Broadway show, Mary Poppins, on Jan. 3, wearing a boy’s (literally) Burton ski cap and black puffy jacket.

In recent photos she’s been decked out in a fedora, tie, camouflage pants, boy vest, pirate sword, navy knit skull and crossbones hat, black jeans, gray jackets, black and white skull socks and sneakers. Even the stuffed animal she carries is blue.

Never ever is Shiloh dolled up in anything remotely girlish. Her blond hair is hidden under hats or left unbrushed and pushed to the side of her face.

Her sister Zahara Jolie-Pitt, however, is allowed to have her girly touches. HER Mary Poppins hair was pulled into a purple barrette and a pretty bracelets escaped from under the arm of her coat.

And you’re not dressing your little boys like girls!

So Brad and so Angelina—what’s up with the cross-gender dressing for Shiloh? Did YOU both want another boy, not a girl? Maddox and Pax weren’t enough? Aren’t you worried that you’re going to confuse little Shiloh? Give her gender identity issues? Isn’t it hard enough to grow up without your parents dressing you like the opposite sex?

A shrink says yes.

“Angelina has said she was bisexual in public—this is her bisexuality coming through. She’s saying “I’m not going to teach my daughter gender—let her pick, believes psychologist, Dr. David Eigen.

But will it confuse her? “Yes,” says Dr. Eigen. “She is being guided into a bisexual role. Her mother is projecting this onto this particular child—she has chosen her as her favorite. I think this is an issue.” Such an issue that Shiloh is already insisting she be called by a boy’s name, “John.” Brad apparently told Oprah that Shiloh insists on being called “John, I’m John,” he explained, “It’s a Peter Pan thing.”

Peter Pan Thing, my ahem! Brad, does Shiloh even know what the color pink is? Has she even seen it? Why do you let little Shiloh be dressed this way?

“All I can say is that Brad must be whipped if he allows this,” believes Dr. Eigen.

Wow! Brad you’re whipped! Now, come on—time to get up your gumption for the sake of your daughter and let her be a girl, if she wants to be.

This article makes me sick. Shiloh is not gender confused!! I’m pretty sure she knows the difference between genders! Just because she wears more masculine clothes and has blue stuffed animals she suddenly has mental problems? She enjoys wearing those clothes and having her hair short. Who cares? She’s a little kid. If she’s transgender then that’s different but even then why do you people care so much? Let her be her own person! It’s obvious what she wants and likes and I don’t think anyone is forcing her to wear those clothes. Wearing blue “masculine” clothes and saying that makes you a boy has to do with GENDER ROLES! People wear blue and cut their hair short and it doesn’t make them confused! Wearing a dress won’t make you a girl and wearing a suit won’t make you a boy. Clothes are simply fabric and hair is just hair like why is this such a huge deal to everyone. Do people really still think that boys have to wear blue and play with monster trucks and girls have to wear pink and play with dolls? No one should feel like they HAVE to wear anything! 6yrs old or not.

I remember when Shiloh was just a baby, toddler, reading that Jolie ignored and neglected her. It was only when she ‘turned’ transgender that Jolie began to warm up to her daughter. I felt sorry for this baby when she was very little as it was all over the press. How does a 3 and a half year old know which ways she’s inclined? This is just the psychology of it. I too believe, for better or worse, that Shiloh was channeled in to her role as a bi-sexual by Jolie. Would Jolie be insecure knowing that she had a daughter that was more beautiful than she? I believe this is Jolie’s doing. She never gave Shiloh a chance to choose. Look a little deeper instead of just accepting whatever you’re told about this woman. I loved her at first and now just think of her as a shill for the New World Order. I think Jolie is actually messed up psychologically, that there’s a lot we don’t see and that Brad’s not the brightest light bulb on the block.

Leave this poor child alone! She can dress however she wants and can do whatever she wants. The fact that you are judging a child for what they wear just proves how sick the paparazzi and this article are. Shiloh is a beautiful healthy child and deserves to be treated as a human, no matter her sex. When I was younger, I wanted to act like a boy and now I’m girly, things change and if they don’t, whatever!! I feel bad for Shiloh in the sense that she has to grow up in this terrible world were everyone is judged on the “social standard”. Let her be. Please.

This article has to be a “troll” article. No one in this decade believes this way. This author is trying to be like Bill O”reilly or that dumba$$ Glenn Beck…Just trying to get a rise out of everyone. This is stupid. Kids wear what they want, every good parent knows that.

She or he is obviously wearing whatever they prefer. Or the child may identify with persons who wear What she’s wearing. may Just Be a phase.. Im actually really interested to see how She develops with this apparently unusual practice.

I’m sorry but there are so many things about this article that are ridiculous and highly cissexist and bordering on transphopic/biphobic/ect. First of all, who cares how Shiloh wants to present and identify? Shiloh is a little girl (or boy is she chooses to identify differently) and can dress however she pleases without her gender identity being threatened. Just because she chooses to dress as a boy doesn’t automatically mean she is a boy and it certainly won’t make her gender confused. It won’t make her gay either (that is just a cruel stereotype just like how gay males must be feminine). The line about this being because Angelina is bisexual? That makes no sense whatsoever. Bisexuality is not a factor in how one dresses their child. Someone can be bisexual and dress their child however they want. In fact, wouldn’t it make more sense that SHILOH is choosing her clothing? Even if the clothes are bought for her, she can still choose whether or not to wear girly or boyish clothes. Also, saying that girls wearing boy clothes will make her gender confused has nothing to support it. Plenty of straight cisgender girls have tomboy phases that have little to no effect on them later in life, just as a straight cisgender boy can wear skirts and dresses as a child yet still be heterosexual and cisgender as an adult. Also, what does it matter to anyone if Shiloh is in fact NOT cisgender and decides to transition from female to male when she is older? Isn’t it better for her to know that she feels this way earlier in life so she can have an easier transition when she is older and ready for it? If anything, Brad and Angelina should be praised for letting their child grow up how she wants instead of instituting strict and narrow gender ideals on her. This whole article is rather narrow-minded and should be looked at from a point of view that is not obsessed with how one little girl chooses to dress.

Bravo!
This article is disgustingly cissexist and narrow minded. As an ftm transman I was insulted by this vile excuse for journalism.

Did this author even do ANY research while writing this paper; or were they just using their simpleminded views? I’m guessing the second option. She WANTS to be a boy. The toddler has chosen what she wants to do and the parents deserve applause for letting her choose her OWN life. It will save Jon a lot of confusion during his life.

Wow… Whoever wrote this is so narrow minded and stupid, I’m almost sure they only wrote this to get a bit of attention… They let their children wear what they want to wear, do what they want to do and be who they want to be. Obviously your parents didn’t have the same approach…

this is so ignorantly written that I literally lost hope in humanity. As a ftm guy myself I can say I was a lot like John (using preferred names) as a kid, I’m not saying this child is trans. Having a child dress in certain cloths wont confuse a child of what their gender is. My parents dressed me up in pink dresses I came home from school wearing guy clothes I knew I was a boy and I always have. Personally I think Brad and Angelina are just being good supportive parents and people should get out of their personal lives. Hearts not parts, get that through your thick skull.

Or, maybe they’re just cool parents who let their kids choose what they want to wear? Shiloh’s an adorable little tomboy, and whatever she wears, dress or cargos, is probably nicer than anything most of you will wear. ^^

I feel like this is teaching her that there is something “wrong” with being a girl. That girls are bad and she needs to change who she is to be accepted. Maybe she likes dressing in boy clothing…maybe she does have some gender issues. But, I find that hard to believe as young as she is. If a child wasn’t told it was supposed to fill a certain gender role, how would it know if it was a boy or a girl? We only fill the roles as society tells us to. I do think it would be nice to see her in something of a brighter color though. I also think that her parents need to teach her some femininity…put a bow in that girl’s hair for cryin’ out loud! There are plenty of ways to avoid typical pink in her wardrobe if that is the issue…how about a cute jean jacket with a softer toned green shirt and some nice khaki pants…possibly a coordinating ballet flat? We aren’t saying go all, pepto princess here…just show us that she is being told that girls are great and deserve to be recognized. I don’t think it’s right for her to seem to be completely denying her gender.

Omg you people act like children are incompetent fools. It’s PRETTY obvious wether your a boy or girl, and you learn that quick. With or without gender roles. I dressed like a Tom boy, just like shilo like 90% of my childhood and I knew I was a girl, and I’m not confused, I’m not gay. I just always enjoyed being opposite if how society wants me to be. I’m a rule bender. I’m sure shilo chooses to dress this way.

I think that you’re the one who’s the incompetent fool! You know nothing of psychology. This child was channeled and programmed in to transgender and will be very confused upon adolescence. It’s like getting your kid to believe a lie about themselves. Jolie seems like a very insecure, cagey and psychologically messed up woman who’s hurting others in the process. I used to like but now can read her like a book. She’s awful…nothing more.

Excellent response. It seems you have a brain, unlike all these other non-seeing Jolie worshipers on this site.

Shiloh looks better as a girl with long blond hair. Shiloh is a girl NOT a boy. When Shiloh gets older she will find out that she’s not a boy once she hits puberty!

this is so wrong, please says something coherent, we are contributing to damage the internal image of a girl, when it should be cared for. Brad and Angelina should go to a psychologist to see what is happening, not because they are seen as men but to cut his hair, encouraging this, and Angelina had to show a very troubled with this girl, blow it calls the attention of his mother. When a teenager to dress and choose the pair you want, while you have to take care
