Rose McGowan Rips Caitlyn Jenner In Open Letter

Rose McGowan is blasting Caitlyn Jenner for her claims that the "hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear" during her Glamour Women of the Year Awards acceptance speech. 

"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," McGowan, 42, shared on a facebook post, which has since been removed. 

"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," Rose went on.

The actress later 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."
