Megan Fox's husband has responded to criticism the couple faced for letting their 4-year-old son wear a dress

How can someone feel comfortable berating a child for harmlessly having fun?

IF YOU SAW the photograph in the top left corner of that Instagram post, would you say the kid looks unhappy or uncomfortable? No. You wouldn’t. The kid looks perfectly happy.

That child is Megan Fox’s four-year-old son Noah and he seems pretty content in his Frozen dress. If you look at the comments section of that innocent photo of a child, you’ll probably find yourself with a bit of a headache.

There are thousands of comments from people saying that by allowing Noah to wear that dress, Megan Fox is going to make him ‘gay’. Teen Vogue noted that there were some comments that said “No values. No morals. Promoting gay perversion.”


There’s an excessive amount of people putting a lot of energy into complaining about what someone else’s child is wearing and demonstrating that they have no idea how clothes work. Dresses don’t make little boys gay.

To be honest, I’d probably be more concerned if my child grew up to be like these people (adults speculating about the sexuality of a four-year-old child online) than my child dressing up as Elsa from Frozen or wearing any piece of clothing that they felt comfortable and happy in.

Megan’s husband Brian Austin Green told Hollywood Pipeline that he’s really not concerned about what these strangers on the internet have to say about his son.

Hollywood Pipeline brought up the question while scrolling through Brian’s Instagram account and here’s what Brian had to say:

My son. He’s four. I’ve heard from some people that they don’t agree. They don’t agree with him wearing dresses. To them I say ‘I don’t care’.
He’s four and if he wants to wear it, then he wears it. It’s dresses or goggles or slippers – whatever. It’s his life. They’re not my clothes. Obviously I don’t wear the nicest stuff. I’m wearing shorts and a t-shirt and a watch you got me [earlier].

He continued:

I feel like at four, at five, that’s the time he should be having fun. He’s not harming anyone wearing a dress. So, if he wants to, awesome. Good on him.

Brian has three other sons who are fairly lucky to have a dad that’s not dictating their wardrobe because it’s not masculine enough for his standards.
