Rose McGowan lectures Caitlyn Jenner on ‘what being a woman is about’


Rose McGowan was having none of Caitlyn Jenner’s Woman of the Year speech given during Glamour’s recent ceremony.

The 42-year-old Charmed actress sounded off on Jenner for stating that the “hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear.” In a post via Facebook, that has since been deleted, McGowan did not mince words when she wrote:

“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. 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.”

Rose didn’t stop there as she posted a number of memes featuring Jenner’s quote on top of images that included Nicole Brown Simpson covered in bruises.

Before deleting her posts outright, McGowan did show some appreciation for Jenner:

“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.”

Jenner’s award already ignited a public controversy as the widower of a 9/11 hero returned his late wife’s award when he learned of Jenner receiving the same recognition.
