Rose McGowan Apologizes For Calling Homosexual Men 'Misogynistic,' Writes Lengthy Op-Ed on the Subject

Rose McGowan is in some hot water over some comments she made saying gay men are misogynistic on Bret Easton Ellis podcast recently.

“Gay men are as misogynistic as straight men, if not more so,” the 41-year-old actress said on the Podcast. “I have an indictment of the gay community right now, I’m actually really upset with them.”

After the backlash, Rose wrote an op-ed piece for the Huffington Post where she offered an apology and an elaboration: “I made a dumb generalization, for that I apologize. For everything else I said, no. I will not.”

“When equal pay for women was voted down by every male Republican there was no LGBT outcry. I wondered why that was? After all, lesbians are women, this affects them, too, right?,” Rose said. “Misogyny infuriates men and it endangers me as a human. It also endangers the LGBT community. Empathy towards the plight of women isn’t making it better. Your voice will. Could I have articulated my frustration in a better fashion? Undoubtedly. For that I apologize, but I stand by my overall point.”

    gays hate women? I get this every once in a while …. usually from uneducated people … they equate being sexually attracted to a guy as a hatred for women but attraction doesn’t work that way for guys … this is really just yet another example of men and women not knowing how the other thinks … Rose doesn’t have anything to apologize for … there was zero animosity behind her statement. people need to chill out.

    wtf? What do gays (or the “gay community”, men women, trans etc) have to do with women rights. If anything it’s a matter that should involve everyone altogether, not just them exclusively. “The gays” didn’t speak up about it, SO WHAT!!!!!! This goes beyond sexual preference, or gender. If you truly care about it you will speak up, if you don’t you’re a prick I guess, but orientation or gender has nothing to do with it, if anything bitch at THE (straight, lesbian, trans, whatever) WOMEN that didn’t speak up, I bet there are millions of them. Why bring gay men up.

    Workers need our support in fighting for improved conditions, maligning workers could eventually lead to them siding with the bosses as they become more and more marginalized, some work in our capitalist system is demeaning and socially not needed. We are constantly bombarded with horror stories of “Career Women” who have left it too late to have a baby, others who wax lyrical about the new found joys of being a housewife; headlines like “Celibacy is back in”, “Romance is back”.
