THE ACTRESS TOLD INSTYLE YOUNG NOAH HAS BEEN SUBJECT TO “MEAN, AWFUL PEOPLE AND CRUEL PEOPLE” ONLINE.
“I DON’T WANT HIM TO EVER HAVE TO READ THAT SHIT BECAUSE HE HEARS IT FROM LITTLE KIDS AT HIS OWN SCHOOL WHO ARE LIKE, ‘BOYS DON’T WEAR DRESSES,’” FOX, 35, SAID.
HERE’S HOW INSTYLE REPORTED ON FOX’S CRYING WHEN ASKED ABOUT HER CHILDREN:
WHEN I ASK HER ABOUT HER KIDS, FOX DOES SOMETHING WOMEN ARE TOLD CONSTANTLY TO AVOID IN PROFESSIONAL SETTINGS: SHE CRIED. AT FIRST, SHE APOLOGIZED FOR HER EMOTIONS BUT THEN IMMEDIATELY STOPPED HERSELF AND WENT ON WITH WHAT SHE WAS SAYING. LIKE HER EPIPHANY AROUND HER CAREER, SHE ACKNOWLEDGED THERE’S NO NEED TO HOLD BACK A FEELING JUST BECAUSE OF SOME ARBITRARY BEHAVIORAL RULE SET OUT FOR WOMEN. AND WHEN IT COMES TO HER “BABIES,” ALL THAT MATTERS IS PROTECTING THEM, ESPECIALLY HER OLDEST, 8-YEAR-OLD NOAH, WHO HAS BEEN SUBJECT TO “MEAN, AWFUL PEOPLE AND CRUEL PEOPLE,” ONLINE. “I DON’T WANT HIM TO EVER HAVE TO READ THAT SHIT BECAUSE HE HEARS IT FROM LITTLE KIDS AT HIS OWN SCHOOL WHO ARE LIKE, ‘BOYS DON’T WEAR DRESSES,’” SHE SAYS.
BACK IN 2019, FOX TOLD “THE TALK” THAT NOAH, THEN 6 YEARS OLD, WORE DRESSES TO HIS “REALLY LIBERAL, HIPPY SCHOOL,” NOTING THAT SHE’S TRYING TO TEACH HIM “CONFIDENCE” TO HANDLE BEING PICKED ON.
“SOMETIMES, HE’LL DRESS HIMSELF AND HE LIKES TO WEAR DRESSES SOMETIMES,” SHE SAID ON THE PANEL, ACCORDING TO PEOPLE MAGAZINE. “AND I SEND HIM TO A REALLY LIBERAL, HIPPY SCHOOL, BUT EVEN THERE — HERE IN CALIFORNIA — HE STILL HAS LITTLE BOYS GOING, ‘BOYS DON’T WEAR DRESSES,’ OR ‘BOYS DON’T WEAR PINK.’ ”
See, this is the problem with liberals – they expect everyone around them to bite their tongue and alter their behavior to suit their feelings.
The reality is that you can’t control what others are going to say to your child, especially other children – so, why set them up for failure? Why use them to conduct your own progressive experiments and make your societal statements?
This is just poor parenting.
