She doesn’t tend to plaster her kids all over her Instagram feed so when a new photo crops up, people are interested. Her most recent photo though, has attracted some negative comments, from people claiming that Megan’s sons Noah and Bodhi ‘look like girls’.
One user wrote, “Lol…poor things look like little girls…”, another said, “Poor boys they look like girls”, while others wrote, “I’m pretty sure she encourages them to be like girls or something, she dresses them like girls for god sakes, look it up, and I’m not even surprised it’s just how Hollywood people are a little weird” and “they are one hundred percent cuties and handsome boys Megan, but the hair..please this is important for kids”.
Others, however, defended the photo.
“I LOVE that you are encouraging your children to have their own unique look & style. It is so wonderful to see and I hope to do the same with my children if I decide to have any.”
“Y’all with the “are these girls?” comments…if you don’t agree with their hairstyle, don’t wear yourself ! Stop telling people what to do, that’s SO annoying, just get the F off her page and keep moving along”
“They look like rockstars, and there’s nothing “poor” about having your own style. She lets her children wear what they want and be themselves.”
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves! Megan has previously been the centre of attention for the way her children dress after a photo of Noah in a princess dress while out and about kicked up a similar storm.
The Transformers actress has expressed her desire to let her kids live their lives and develop their own identities. She explained:
“Much of my ego has been constructed around this idea that I’m not like most girls. I’m somehow more masculine, tougher, less permeable or feminine.”
“When I became pregnant with Noah, I could feel, through my mother’s intuition I suppose, that he was not subscribing to gender stereotypes, so I decided to provide an environment for him early on that would allow him to discover how he wanted to express himself.”
“If a boy loves princesses and a girl loves baseball, that’s not indicative of their sexuality. It’s indicative of their communication and creative expression. We can’t limit children by telling them how they should play.”
Well said! Let kids be kids, in whichever way they please.
