Twitter Is Hating On Alyssa Milano After Tone-Deaf Tweet
Alyssa Milano is getting a bit of backlash on Twitter after messaging yesterday that she’s celebrating trans women for International Women’s Day.
My transgender sisters! I am celebrating YOU this #NationalWomensDay!— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) March 8, 2019
After a Twitter user asked “Are you transgender?” Alyssa then followed up with:
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.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) March 9, 2019
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
But many folks weren’t liking her use of inclusivity, with most arguing that she’s using a disconnected “I don’t see color” approach.
No. You are an advocate. Be ok with that. This isn’t the way to say you are with us.— George M Johnson (@IamGMJohnson) March 9, 2019
You can’t just fake an experience you don’t have. You don’t navigate any space like these groups.
This is the “I don’t see color” approach which is oppression and erasure.

No, you’re a racist who is doing the absolute most to distract from that fact. #NotYourMascot— Chronically Fabulous Feefs (@LeFeefs) March 9, 2019
As a gay trans man… like, you’ve got the general enthusiasm down but you absolutely should not say stuff like this— ⭕️ Johnny, The Trans Juggernaut 🏳️🌈 (@ChosenOfAshurha) March 9, 2019
Cause you’re speaking over the experiences of… like, every minority.
