This celeb mama always takes a tell-it-like-it-is approach to life that's often void of labels of any and all kind. It should come as no shock that Pink is raising her daughter without gender labels. But as you'll see, the interwebs are pretty heated that the Beautiful Trauma singer would ever do such a thing -- going as far as calling it "child abuse." (Yikes.)

  • People can't stop talking about Pink and her "label-less household" after the celeb mom admitted her 6-year-old daughter wants to marry a woman.

    "Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman," the 38-year-old admitted to the Sunday People. "I was like: 'Great, can you teach me how to make African food?' And she's like: 'Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.'"

    In addition to Willow, the singer -- who jokes she's "still a 12-year-old boy" in her interview -- has an 11-month-old son named Jameson with husband Carey Hart.

  • Pink's unconditional support of her daughter aligns with the singer's MTV VMA acceptance speech about the importance of self-love and living your truth.

    In her speech to accept the 2017 Video Vanguard Award, Pink revealed her 6-year-old struggles with looking "like a boy," and that she uses "androgynous rock stars" as a source of inspiration.

    "And I said to [Willow], 'Do you see me growing my hair?' She said, 'No, mama,'" Pink mentions during her speech. "I said, 'Do you see me changing my body?' 'No, mama.' 'Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?' 'No, mama.' 'Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?' 'Yes, Mama.' 'OK! So, baby girl. We don't change. We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty.'"

  • As encouraging as Pink tries to be about *her* daughter, it seems the Internet is feeling some kind of way about this mom's words.

  • Many aren't too happy.

  • And some go as far as suggesting "child abuse."

  • How'd we get here?

  • Seriously, folks are pissed off, and they're indulging in the elementary art of name-calling to get their point across.

  • Yup, we heard enough.

  • Luckily, there are kindhearted people still left in the world who actually support the idea of a mother supporting her child.

  • Thanks for the positive comments, ladies!

  • Pink will obviously do what she thinks is best for Willow. But, dang, will there ever be a day when people *don't* give her crap?

    If you agree with Pink, cool. If not, move on without being so mean and negative. It really is that simple.
