Outspoken left-wing Hollywood actress and “super-sciency” expert Alyssa Milano celebrated International Women’s Day on Friday by giving a shout-out to men.
And oh, she also insinuated that she too is a man.
“My transgender sisters! I am celebrating YOU this #NationalWomensDay!” she tweeted Friday afternoon.
My transgender sisters! I am celebrating YOU this #NationalWomensDay!

Never mind that so-called “transgender women” are in reality biological men who’ve literally appropriated women’s femininity from them. Isn’t appropriation supposed to be a bad thing?
But sane Americans — most of them presumably conservative — already knew that far-leftists like Milano deny the reality of biological science. What they didn’t know is that she in particular views “transgender women” as her “sisters.” This naturally led some to ask if she’s transgender.
Observe how she replied below:
I’m trans. I’m a person of color. I’m an immigrant. I’m a lesbian. I’m a gay man. I’m the disabled.
I’m everything. And so are you, Kirk.
Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know or understand. No one wants to hurt you. We are all just looking for our happily ever after. https://t.co/znkQizV37k

What the heck was that?
Whatever it was, it sparked a lot of backlash.
Nah pretty sure that’s not how it works… https://t.co/nYSaW2NhZt

Some if it was aimed at Milano by her fellow leftists:
Empathy is not about appropriating the experiences of others. You are a well-to-do white woman who is none of the things you are “empathizing” with. That matters.
Your apology should be for reproducing racial hierarchies and overstepping in the name of “allyship.”

You’re appropriating a lot of things that belong to those who actually experience those struggles in life.
We don’t need you as our champion – we are our own.
You’re nothing but an entitled, wealthy, Hollywood mouthpiece w zero disadvantages in life beyond your pea sized brain.

Well that means you are Alyssa Milano because the only thing in this world you actually love is yourself or you would not be abusing and appropriating the suffering and misfortune of others to promote yourself.

Stop appropriating the identity of victims u white cisgender female

They had a point. Milano is neither trans, gay, disabled nor a person of color. Much like Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, she’s just a standard white woman, not that there’s anything remotely wrong with being one. You go, girl!
But claiming to be something you’re not? Even the loudest critics of PC culture and identity politics would argue that pretending to be someone or something you’re not is just plain wrong.
In response to the deserved criticism, the actress issued a lackluster non-apology apology.
“I’m glad this tweet invoked conversation,” she wrote. “I’m so sorry it offended some. I see you and hear you. But just a reminder, empathy is not a bad thing. Nuance is important and literal interpretation is not always intended. And I can identify with and not identify as. Both are powerful.”
She shares a lot in common with the leftist media hacks who responded to the hate crime hoax perpetrated by actor Jussie Smollett by touting how the hoax had focused the public’s attention on the alleged epidemic of hate crimes against “ordinary Black LGBTQ people” and started a conversation.
Look at Milano’s tweet and the resulting backlash below:
I’m glad this tweet invoked conversation. I’m so sorry it offended some. I see you and hear you. But just a reminder, empathy is not a bad thing. Nuance is important and literal interpretation is not always intended. And I can identify with and not identify as. Both are powerful.

“I’m sorry YOU got offended. I’m right tho”

Apologies do not have “but” in them.

Empathy is fine but you can’t claim to be something you’re not. I’m actually disabled and it’s not something to brag about. I’d give anything to not be disabled anymore.

Sooo this is a Very Bad Response. People took the time and effort to explain to you the harm done by the language you used, and you’re “sorry it offended some” (a classic fauxpology) AND still saying there was nothing wrong with your words.

It invoked a conversation…but are you actually LISTENING to what’s being said?

In fairness to Milano, she never listens to criticism. She only doubles down.
