Alice Eve Posts Apologetic Statement After Bruce Jenner Transition Comments

Alice Eve has added an apologetic photo to her Instagram account after she posted some controversial statements about Bruce Jenner‘s transition.

“I am a supporter of anyone who wishes to explore their gender identity,” the photo says. “Sometimes language doesn’t express the spectrum of identity sufficiently, as in this case. I am also a believer in equal rights for all…Whatever your race, color and creed.”

“Until women are paid the same as men, then playing at being a ‘woman’ while retaining the benefits of being a man is unfair,” Alice wrote in her original post, which has since been deleted.

    Bummer she apologized. Her original comment was spot on. Jenner is crazy if he thinks women will allow him to get all the benefits of being a woman without having suffered any of the burdens coming with the gender. He can identify however he wishes, but he’s still not a woman…and most certainly is NOT welcome in the Ladies Room until he gets himself neutered AND undergoes a complete transition…in which case he’s no longer simply a hetersexual trannie.

    Also, he will NEVER know what its like to be a woman, having never had to compete with men as a woman, suffer PMS or other women’s health issues, suffer inequal pay for MORE work than their maile counterparts, etc. He’s confused and should address THAT in some kind of counseling rather than trying to establish societal norms that would debase what a WOMAN is both physically, psychologically and socially merely so he can feel “good” about his sexuality.

    I support LGBT rights, but there must be some boundaries and this is a firm one.

    why did she apologize? she is absolutely correct….

  • michelle

    very well put Dasha! thank you!

  • Martha Bartha

    That’s what I was thinking! Political Correctness at it’s worst.

  • Baseliner

    stop apologizing. stand by your convictions, is free speech dead?

  • MyTwoCents

    who is she?

  • FerCat

    Her arguments were valid and her Bruce Jenner remark was clearly meant as a metaphor.

    Political correctness is now being used as a tool to silence free speech. And worse, maintain inequality.

    Google, use it.

    She should have stood strong but I guess her pr camp urged her to issue an apology. Sad.

    Its funny how you say you support LGBT rights, yet you use transphobic slurs, deny Bruce or transgendered people who have not had gender confirmation surgery the right to use the toilets of the gender that they identify with.

    What makes the comment not ok, is the idea that this woman is suggesting that all transgender peoples are trying to take advantage of their situation, which is far from the case. There are many transgender people who experience a great deal of discrimination and who are denied the basic rights of men, woman, or humans for that matter.

    I dont see why you feel the need to define the female experience by “PMS” womens health issues, etc. We are more than just our ailments, ok.

    I dont see how transgender issues relate to the male female divide, Bruce is a woman, and actively seeking a transition which will place him in most of the same social circumstances a woman, (or at least other ordinary transgendered people) and subjecting himself to probably more issues as a transgender person than you or any biological female will experience in their lifetime.

    So why dont you first consider how transgender people are experienceing such hate and bigotry like everyone commenting here, and tell me that transgender people have it so easy and can use their gender duality as an advantage.

    This woman doesnt seem to know what being transgender means. Why would she post a picture of david bowie, being transgender is not the same as cross dressing or androgyny.
