Charlize Theron had the internet divided when she claimed that her seven-year-old son Jackson was transgender and that he identified as a girl

What shocked many is that the SA born star revealed that Jackson – who has been spotted wearing long braids and pretty princess dresses, knew he was a girl at age three!

(FYI – My three-year-old doesn’t know if he is a T-Rex, a great white shark or Mr Bean from one minute to the next).

Many criticised the actress for how she dealt with the situation as a parent.

Others praised the star for allowing her child to be his authentic self.

The blonde beauty is not the only celeb who is encouraging their kids to choose their own identity

More and more stars are revealing that they are allowing their children to choose to wear what they feel most comfortable in, even if it means dressing up as the opposite sex.

Take a look at these stars who are raising their kids to shun gender stereotypes…

 

Naomi Watts & Liev Screiber

Naomi & Lieb’s son Samuel aka ‘Kai’ identifies as the opposite sex and could easily be mistaken for a girl!

Megan Fox

Megan’s three sons Noah, Journey and Bodhi are often spotted out in pretty Disney dresses.

“If a boy loves princesses and a girl loves baseball, that’s not indicative of their sexuality… It’s indicative of their communication and creative expression. We can’t limit children by telling them how they should play,” Megan said in a social media post.
