Rose McGowan is not amused

As I mentioned previously, Bruce Jenner was named Glamour Magazine's Woman of the Year. I chose not to wax enthusiastically disgusted over this but my former vision of pale-skinned hotness did not hesitate to let the world know exactly how she feels about it via her Facebook page:
"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 fucking 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 fucking shot."

I think what may have set Rose off, was Jenner's remark in the issue's interview about how he struggles to find clothes to wear. Not sure about Rose these days. She seems to be rapidly turning into your crazy Aunt Rose going off wildly on any particular issue that finds the sweet spot in her anger zone.

Last time she went off, it was over some casting director asking her to show up in a tight sweater for an audition for a movie where she would have to wear a tight sweater. Yeah, I know, I don't get it either. I love my Rosie, but her most memorable career moment is probably when she wore this to the MTV Awards:

So it's not like she waving Oscars at the folks who piss her off. But she does have a career to maintain, and like any good liberal, once she got savaged by the SJW's who demand absolute fealty to their agenda, Rose quickly backed down and offered this lukewarm qualification:
"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."

I think I would have been happier had she shown some backbone and stood her ground over her comments, but you just don't see that much any more from folks in the public eye.  *sigh*

Interestingly, there's a whole war brewing in the LBGT community over the fact that the LGB's don't think the T's deserve the same blank check civil liberties appeasement that the militant gays are pushing for. I think there is actually a "Drop the T" petition on one of those online petition sites. The T's are pushing back by calling the LGB's trans-phobic and discriminatory and every other name that the LGBT community has been leveling at Christians and conservatives who take a dim view of their aberrant sexual orientation for years.

There's a certain sense of Schadenfreude watching these groups go after each other like this.

In closing, here's a couple of pics of Rose doing . . . I'm not sure, maybe body-casting or something. I don't know. But she's topless and still has the body to show off like that. So there ya go.
