Liev Schreiber’s Son Attends Comic-Con Dressed As Superheroine Harley Quinn

Liev Schreiber has described his Jewish mother as a “far-out Socialist Labor Party hippie bohemian freak who hung out with William Burroughs” so perhaps it’s no surprise that Schreiber doesn’t cling fast to gender stereotypes when it comes to his own children.

The actor and painfully cool dad, who will probably never embarrass his kids like YOUR parents did, escorted both of his sons to Comic Con in San Diego Saturday, with one dressed as a Jedi and the other rocking that Harley Quinn of “Suicide Squad” look.

Setting aside the fact that Harley Quinn is objectively worse than Poison Ivy, we’re proud of Schreiber for just saying no to gender norms. But others weren’t so charmed by Schreiber’s unwillingness to inflict an outdated set of rules created to ward off homosexuality on his son.

If more of this is what we can expect from our Cultural Marxist overlords, then we may not need a revolution after all.
