Actress slams Caitlyn: ‘Woman of the Year? Not by a long f***ing shot’

by

Accepting her trophy at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards last week, Caitlyn Jenner got a warm round of laughs from the audience when she told them that the "hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear."

But the transgender activist's speech didn't go down too well with some people, including actress Rose McGowan, who has already hit back at Caitlyn online for misrepresenting women.

"Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all," she wrote on Facebook yesterday.

"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***ing learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege."

Speaking at the awards on Monday November 9, Caitlyn admitted that the types of questions she got from interviewers after her transition differed greatly from the topics she was asked about before.

"I got all these new questions from people, saying, 'What's your style? What are you going to wear? Who are your heroes? Are you a feminist?' All these questions and I said, 'Oh my gosh, I have so much to learn.'" she explained.

Taking issue with Caitlyn's speech, Rose continued: "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***ing shot."

Before deleting the post completely last night following backlash, Rose edited it to clarify her comments.

"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," she wrote.

Caitlyn Jenner has yet to respond via social media.
