Rose McGowan Critical of Caitlyn Jenner's Acceptance Speech

Between the NYPD officer who returned his deceased wife's Glamour Woman of The Year Award, stating that he was "shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce Jenner Woman Of The Year", and now Rose McGowan's input on the matter, it's safe to say that Jenner is experiencing something of a backlash.

Speaking of Jenner's acceptance speech, and the fact that she said she found the "hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear", the 42-year-old actress said via her facebook page yesterday: "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. 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."

McGowan allegedly followed this post with a number of images depicting rape, domestic violence and childbirth. Later, she 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."
