Being a mom is hard enough when you're just a normal, everyday person. But when you're famous like Charlie Theron is, everybody thinks they can be a better parent than you — even if their idea of parenting is all about maintaining strict gender stereotypes that might hurt their kids.

It's no secret that Charlize Theron's adopted son Jackson is a HUGE fan of "Frozen."

He is a five-year-old, of course. "Frozen" is what sustains them. 

Specifically he loves the film's supernatural protagonist, Queen Elsa.

I mean, duh.

When he was on the set of "The Huntsman: Winter's War" with his mom, he thought Emily Blunt was Elsa.

"Charlize's son was on set a lot and he was obsessed. He's obsessed with 'Frozen.' He really thought I was Elsa," Blunt told Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night talk show. "He got disappointed because he saw me in my sweatpants one day with the white hair on, and he looks at me and he goes, 'Put on your dress!' Like, really bummed about it. 'Put it on now.'"

“My son is in love with [Emily]," Theron admitted during a press junket with Extra. "He thinks she’s, like, the most beautiful princess ever. Yeah, it’s crazy. I didn’t even exist, he was just like, ‘Ahhh, she’s a princess.’ I’m like, 'I’m a queen.'”

He even dressed as Elsa for Halloween this past year!

Of course, Theron was Snow White and her mother was Maleficent. 

And recently he was seen sporting an Elsa wig, a cute hat, and pink sundress while out and about.

Oh my god, this kid is so lucky. If I'd had access to wigs as a child I would have worn them literally every day of my life. 

Unfortunately, some strangers on the internet are not taking Jackson's choices very well.

And they're accusing Theron of "forcing" her son to wear dresses.

Y'all, have you ever tried to force a five-year-old to wear anything? You can't, because the instant they decide they don't want to participate in dressing themselves they go limp like a cooked noodle. 

It's getting a bit out of hand.

But luckily she has supporters, too.

If we want to improve the world for our children, then that doesn't just mean telling young girls to challenge gender stereotypes — it means telling boys the same thing.

And if they want to wear dresses or idolize a princess, then who are you to judge them? If girls can look past the pink toy aisle, then boys should be able to hang out in the pink toy aisle. It's only fair.
