!! OMG, quote of the day: Rose McGowan isn’t really vibing on Caitlyn Jenner !!

Following Caitlyn‘s acceptance speech at the Glamour Awards, Rose McGowan decided to share her two cents on why she takes issue with Caitlyn Jenner being “Woman Of The Year”:

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.”

McGowan went on to say:

“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.”

Thoughts?

    If Ann Coulter or Sarah Palin had said this, you would all be screaming, “ZOMGTRANSPHOBIA!!!11!”

    Robert that’s low of you man, do you hate women or something?

    IT IS TRUE WHAT SHE SAYS! CAITLIN DOES NOT SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE…….AND SAID SHE WILL VOTE REPUBLICAN….WHICH IS REALLY SAD…..CONSIDERING PEOPLE HATE AND LOOK DOWN ON HER FOR BEING TRANS….

    Congrats, Rose, you just earned the title some people throw around willy-nilly: C*nt.

    Don’t you have some children you should be fattening up for thanksgiving?

    If Caitlyn wants to be Woman of the Year…maybe get rid of the penis first? Just sayin.’

    RM could have put it less aggressively, but she’s completely right.
    The net result of Caitlyn Jenner’s big year is a transwoman got the spotlight at the expense of bio-women, instead of BOTH getting attention. Of course, that either wouldn’t have occurred to Jenner (male privilege) or she wouldn’t care.
    How about “Women of the Year” instead?

    Jenner hasn’t been a woman for even a year. Give me a break- Maybe in 10-20 years she could be woman of the year after some experience being one. What a joke.

    J’agree

    Well, it’s true what she says.

    Rose has never been anti-trans so let’s hope people will not confuse this.

    And at the same time Rose is fiercely feminist and I like the unique take she has on this.

    Rose is so outspoken that she sometimes comes across as crass – so I hope people will understand this despite her surprising words.

    100%. caitlin makes a mockery of women. Basically, Alice Eve should feel vindicated, because Jenner is playing at being a woman.

    She’s not wrong.
