Rose McGowan Slams Caitlyn Jenner After Glamour 'Woman of the Year' Speech

Pin It
Caitlyn Jenner received Glamour's "Woman of the Year" award this year and not everyone is happy about it. The husband of a 9/11 hero returned the same award that had been given to his late wife, calling it a "slap in the face" when Caitlyn received it. "Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?'' he wrote, in an open letter posted to Facebook.

Turns out, Caitlyn's comments after receiving the award ruffled a lot of feathers, too, especially when she told BuzzFeed backstage that "the hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear." In a (now-deleted) open letter to the former Olympian, Rose McGowan slammed the 66-year-old, saying she doesn't understand what being a woman is all about, writing:

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. 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.

Before deleting the post entirely, Rose reportedly added:

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.

No word on why Rose deleted the post.
