Rose McGowan Blasts Caitlyn Jenner On Facebook
Not one to mince words, Rose McGowan has once again taken to social media to share her unique perspective.
According to a report by Gay Star News, McGowan, an actor best known for her roles on "Charmed," and the 1999 film, "Jawbreaker," recently took to Facebook to share an open letter to Caitlyn Jenner. In the now deleted post, she says to Jenner, "You do not understand what being a woman is about."
McGowan goes on to suggest that Jenner cannot understand what it is to be a woman because she has lived most of her life with male privilege.
McGowan was especially struck by Jenner's acceptance speech at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, during which the former Olympic athlete joked that "the hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear."
"I got all these new questions from people, saying, 'What’s your style? What are you going to wear? Who are your heroes? Are you a feminist?' All these questions and I said, “Oh my gosh, I have so much to learn,”‘ Jenner said.
McGowan was not amused.
"Caitlyn Jenner, you do not understand what being a woman is about at all," she wrote in an open letter posted on Facebook.
"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 fucking learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege.
"‘Woman of the year? No, not until you wake up and join the fight,’ she added. ‘Not by a long fucking shot.’"
In an update, McGowan later 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,’ she wrote.
"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."
You may recall that McGowan landed in hot water last year, when she claimed that gay men were more misogynistic than straight men.
Do you agree with her this time? Sound off in the comments.
