So while we're all talking about Angelina and Brad (is it true? are they really done? why do I care so much?), let's talk about this: why is USWeekly worried about their kid wearing pants? So Shiloh wears pants: SO?
Am I the only one who thinks it's weird that they noticed she often wears pants? Are they really that hard up for celebrity news?
Anyway. They had an expert - AN EXPERT - weigh in on the earth-shattering, nail-biting question of 'Do Brad & Angelina Want To Turn Shiloh Into A Boy?'
Of course the expert said 'No'. According to the expert, who was probably laughing all the way to the bank, if that is what Shiloh wants to wear, she should be fine.
In related news, my daughter wears pants 98% of the time and now USWeekly will have my nosey neighbors thinking that she might be a lesbian or cross-dresser and that I'm acting out about my disappointment in not having a boy. Trust me, I know they all subscribe to that magazine because I read their cast-offs in the laundry room every week. I'd never pay money for that stuff (unless in an airport, I have different reading rules in travel situations.)
Anyhow, when it comes to dressing my girl, pants are practical for school and frankly they make for better playground clothes. It would never dawn on me that pant-wearing might influence her sexual orientation, fetishes, or make her think we wanted a boy. Mostly because both of those things are the most ridiculous things I've heard in FOREVER.
I mean, the fact that the magazine even thought that Shiloh -- who appears to be a very head-strong preschooler with parents who subscribes to the 'we ain't suppressing any free expression' school of child rearing -- does not have a hand in her wardrobe selection is ridiculous. More than likely it is Miss Shiloh herself who keeps selecting the pants and in the whole scheme of things: who really cares? As long as she isn't wearing low-riders with her thong showing, a bare-midriff with thigh high boots or basically dressed like one of the Cyrus girls, I think Shiloh is doing just fine.
