Rose McGowan, the Charmed actress, was not shy about her opinions on Caitlyn Jenner, who recently gave a speech accepting Glamour’s “Woman of the Year” award. In the speech, Jenner says the hardest thing about being a woman was “finding what to wear.”

McGowan took exception to that, to put it lightly.

In a post on her Facebook page Nov. 16, McGowan stated: “Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman means at all. You want to be a woman and stand with us — well learn now. 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.” The post continued, “Woman of the year? Not until you wake up and join the fight. Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage. The weight of uneven 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.”

To go with her post, McGowan posted several graphic pictures of women being abused along with Jenner’s quote. One of the pictures included O.J. Simpson’s late wife Nicole Brown Simpson covered in bruises. Nicole was a good friend of Jenner’s ex-wife Kris Jenner.

As of Nov. 17, the post appears to have disappeared. No response from Jenner has been reported. According to Us Weekly, McGowan posted later saying, “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 their struggles.”
