Rose McGowan defends herself over her Caitlyn Jenner comments

Rose McGowan has defended herself after saying Caitlyn Jenner does not understand how to be a woman.

The former Charmed actress criticized the transgender reality TV star for living a life of ‘male privilege’ and saying there is more to being a woman than ‘deciding what to wear’.

‘Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all,’ she said in a Facebook post. ‘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. 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 fucking shot.’

McGowan was heavily criticized, with many saying she was being transphobic. After all, this isn’t the last time she has faced the ire of the LGBTI community. Earlier this year, she said gay men were more misogynistic than straight men.

In a follow-up, she admitted she had been a ‘little intense’ about her treatment of Jenner.
