Brian Austin Green, the actor who played wannabe bad boy David Silver on the ‘90s TV series Beverly Hills, 90210, and his wife, bisexual Transformers actress Megan Denise Fox, have a four-year-old son named Noah who likes to wear dresses. In a recent interview, Green responded to online critics of his son’s fashion tastes, stating, “I don’t care…. It’s his life,” and “He’s four and if we wants to wear it, then he wears it.”

Near the beginning of August 2017, Fox posted a photo to her Instagram page showing Noah dressed in Elsa’s gown from the Disney animated film Frozen.
While some people praised Fox for letting her son follow his imagination, several ignorant commenters started criticizing Fox for “promoting gay perversion.” One wrote, “Destruction of traditional gender roles lead to a totalitarian society granting government officials more power,” and another wrote, “It is not okay for a boy to walk around in their mother’s heels…. it’s the parent’s job to instruct the child in the RIGHT way.”

In a recent interview with the web show Hollywood Pipeline, Green defended his son, saying, “My son, he’s four, and I’ve heard from some people that they don’t agree with him wearing dresses. To them I say, ‘I don’t care.’ He’s four and if we wants to wear it, then he wears it.”
He continued, “And it’s dresses or goggles or slippers, whatever. It’s his life. They’re not my clothes. I feel like at four or five, that’s a time when he should be having fun. He’s not harming anyone wearing a dress. So, if he wants to wear a dress? Awesome. Good on him.”
In a February 2016 interview with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, Fox explained that she grew up in a Southern Pentecostal Christian household that forbade women from wearing pants, jewelry or makeup.
“It’s a really sort of oppressive environment to grow up in,” she said, adding, “I sort of lean left of that now…. Noah wears dresses. So, there are no rules. You can be whatever you want to be in my house!”
