Rose McGowan Throws Serious Shade At Caitlyn Jenner
"Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all."
Rose McGowan has been very outspoken about her issues with the LGBT community in the past. An ardent feminist herself, McGowan's criticisms range from incredibly valid to outright nasty, depending on the day. Her newest fight, which she picked over Facebook, is with Caitlyn Jenner.
Jenner recently received Glamour's Woman of the Year award. Controversy was sparked when a 9/11 widower returned his late wife's award in protest of the praises heaped on Caitlyn. Now, McGowan is popping off on the transgender superstar herself, specifically responding to Jenner's claim that the “hardest part about being a woman is deciding what to wear.”
"Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all. You want to be a woman and stand with us- well learn us," wrote McGowan on her page. "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—king learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege."
McGowan later clarified her statements: "Let me take this moment to point out that I am not, nor will I ever be, transphobic...Disliking something a trans person has said is no different than disliking something a man has said or that a woman has said. Being trans doesn't make one immune from criticism," she explained. "I know that being a public figure is not easy. Being Caitlyn Jenner is most assuredly not easy, but that doesn't absolve her of her of responsibility. Living as a woman in this backwards society is hard. We need all hands on deck. Those who have the microphone speak to many. Especially that family."
Before this, McGowan most recently made news by announcing the end of her acting career and releasing a trippy music video for science-fiction inspired electronica song "RM486."
Jenner has yet to respond to the criticisms.
