"Experts" Freak Out Over Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's Lack of Girlie Things

Life & Style's cover screams, "Why Is Angelina Turning Shiloh Into a Boy?"
Us Weekly's "expert" opines that Shiloh could be at risk of being, "picked on or ostracized by her peers, potentially leading to social problems, anxiety, and poor academic performance."
Last month, former Us Weekly editor in chief Bonnie Fuller, at her website Hollywood Life, posted the question, "Brangelina—what are you doing to poor Shiloh Jolie-Pitt?" Fuller adds: "Never ever is Shiloh dolled up in anything remotely girlish ... Aren't you worried that you're going to confuse little Shiloh? Give her gender identity issues? Isn’t it hard enough to grow up without your parents dressing you like the opposite sex?" She goes on to quote a psychologist: “She is being guided into a bisexual role. Her mother is projecting this onto this particular child—she has chosen her as her favorite. I think this is an issue."
Sounds to me like a case of either obvious tabloid eyeball-baiting or good old-fashioned fashion bigotry. She looks totally cute. I think I have that hat. And I think in a world of Suri in high heels and the the Princess syndrome, little girls can use a dose of comfort and a wee dash of anything-but-pink.
What about you? Do you think Brad and Angelina should put the kid in a dress?
