Although her daughter likes to wear boys' outfit unlike some girls of her age, the 35-year-old actress backs her because 'children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish.'

Shortly after Angelina Jolie revealed that her 4-year-old daughter Shiloh "wants to be a boy," she has now defended her masculine clothing. Jolie, who is currently promoting her upcoming film "Salt", told Reuters on Saturday, July 10 that Shiloh's fashion choice is "fascinating".

"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," Jolie said. "Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth."

In recent months, Shiloh, who has a cropped hairstyle, has been spotted wearing boys' neckties, jackets, hats and other clothing which later sparked headlines about the youngster being a bit of a tomboy. Jolie, however, stated, "Society always has something to learn when it comes to the way we judge each other, label each other. We have far to go."

While Shiloh opted the boy's clothing because she feels comfortable with that, Jolie recently dressed in men's clothes for her role as a rogue CIA officer in "Salt". The 35-year-old actress said that the film's crew felt uncomfortable with her disguise.

"It was fascinating," Jolie shared about her experience. "The stunt guys I usually hung out talking to, didn't want to hang out with me. The girls didn't know how to respond... there was something about him that kind of freaked the whole crew out."

It's sad to know that all people are fixated on is how a child dresses. Get your priorities straight!

Copy, Paste from other Bloggers' discussions at FF board. IS BRAD PITT ENABLING THE ABUSE OF SHILOH? by Guest on Fri Jul 09, 2010 4:30 pm This Shiloh thing is what's bringing Jolie down. The homewrecking ho thing she's never lived down, the media may have been bought and loons created, but most of the public has no sympathy for her whatsoever, waiting for the time - which is this year, that karma comes and gets her. You wouldn't think she'd have the balls to pull off another huge emotional crime but she did. With Shiloh, intially she both capitalized on the pregnancy for publicity and sold photos for money while denigrating the child herself in order to glorify herself as an adoptive mother with a greater capacity for love than ordinary people. It was obvious that in her mind, most parents didn't love the adopted children as much as their bios, or she would have never told the story about Shiloh being a blob. Jolie wanted to elevate herself and declare by obvious implication that she was SPECIAL - she struggled to connect with her bio child while having enormous infinite love and connection for her adopted kids. Jolie also believes -- since it's an American commercial truism - that blonde hair/blue eyes are prized among the conventional citizens, but in her uber special, awareness laden, saintly universe, third world culture rules and the blonde blue eyed is an outcast. Isn't she special? She basically used Shiloh not to tell anything real about her feelings for or relationship with Shiloh, but used Shiloh as an illustration of how unusually special Jolie is, how unlike the ordinary and common CONVENTIONAL folk. Meantime the kid herself is totally ignored as Jolie milks her existence for self-aggrandizement, or, as she'd characterize it "elevation." Then came the hair event, and Jolie using it to create the fiction of Shiloh wanting to be a boy. She could have gotten away with that one - the kid is sturdy and active and no wilting wallflower. IF she'd dressed her as she dresses the boys - in urban type streetwear. But she had to dress her like a clown, claiming this was a THREE YEAR OLD's OWN SPECIFIC TASTE and actually thought she could sell that one. That's getting spit back in her face, as it should be. Lie about that, then is her wanting to be a boy really true? Does a child who thinks she is a boy and one of the brothers want to be in a hat, clothes tucked in, long sleeves in hot weather? Probably not, most sensible people conclude. Well, if she doesn't want to dress like that, maybe she doesn't want to be a boy at all. Why does Jolie say she does? BECAUSE JOLIE IS A MONSTER. It's intuitive to everybody who puts eyes on the kid. It doesn't make sense with wanting to be a boy, or identifying with her brothers. It doesn't make sense with being an active, rough and tumble child. MONTENEGRO STYLE? Jolie is so arrogant she believes the public doesn't know that's impossible for a child Shiloh's age. Montefuckingnegro style. The Shiloh scam is one thing the public will not forgive, or even pretend, as occasionally it did in the past with AJ's homewrecking, to forget. What kind of mother uses a pre-schooler that way, making a mockery of her vulnerability, her lack of awareness, and the core of her identity?
