After some interpreted her comments as being transphobic, Rose took to Twitter to explain that isn't how she feels at all and that certainly wasn't her intent when she posted her original message. She just took offense when Cait told BuzzFeed backstage at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards that, "the hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear."
"Let me take a moment to point out that I am not, nor will I ever be, transphobic. The idea is laughable. Disliking something a trans person has said is no different than disliking something a man has said or that a woman has said," she began. She then went on to say that she understands Caitlyn's status as a public figure and would be happy to fight alongside Caitlyn as a fellow woman, concluding, "I just want her to know there is a monumental fight to be had."
There have been mixed reactions to Rose's follow-up statement, though. "Calling her out isn't the problem, it's how it was done," one person commented. "You don't know what its like to be trans and to say we have male privilege is disgusting. we are attacked more often than women," someone else commented.
Others joined the discussion showing their support for Rose and her comments. "I'm glad you spoke out. Someone saying the hardest part of being a woman is figuring out what to wear is bs and insulting," one person wrote."I am trans, and I support you 100%," someone else chimed in. "Thank you for having the moxie to call a spade a spade with Caitlyn Jenner. You voiced exactly the way I feel!" another commenter said.
Caitlyn hasn't responded to Rose's initial post or the follow-up.
