Rose McGowan has slammed the transgender advocate for receiving the Glamour Woman of the Year award.
But Rose was quick to point out, it’s not because Caitlyn Jenner’s transgender, it’s because she’s Caitlyn Jenner.
McGowan believes Jenner’s comment negate the graver struggles that women face on a daily level, and she vented her anger in a (now deleted) Facebook post.
“Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all,” the actress and occasional singer wrote. “You want to be a woman and stand with us — well learn us. We are more than deciding what to wear. We are more than the stereotypes foisted upon us by people like you.”
“You’re a woman now? Well f—cking learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege,” she continued. “Woman of the year? No, not until you wake up and join the fight. Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage. The weight of unequal history. You’d do well to learn it. You’d do well to wake up. Woman of the year? Not by a long f—cking shot.”
She added, “Let me amend this by saying I’m happy for what she’s doing visibility wise for the trans community, and I’m happy she’s living her truth, but comments like hers have consequences for other women.”
“How we are perceived, what our values are, and leads to more stereotyping. If you know you are going to be speaking to media about being a woman, maybe come to understand our struggles.”
Do you think McGowan has a point?
