Rose McGowan was NOT here for Caitlyn Jenner’s Woman of the Year acceptance speech and had absolutely no problem making it known.
She took to Facebook to blast the former Olympian.
“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. 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,” she wrote.
“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—king shot.”
She didn’t stop there. Rose also posted a few graphic memes that featured a quote from Cait’s speech — including one depicting a woman getting raped, being followed home lat at night, and a woman in the hospital after giving birth. Oh, and another particularly harsh one showing O.J. Simpson’s late wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, covered in bruises.
Rose later added on Facebook:
“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.”
Her comments may have been harsh, but Rose may have a point here.
