Lynda Carter defends LGBTQ people, tweet after tweet.
The longtime ally, 70, tweeted her support for women and the trans community amid recent social media fury whipped up by fellow celebs.
“I can’t think of anything that helps women’s rights less than blaming trans women,” the Wonder Woman icon said posted on Twitter on Tuesday and amassed 136,000 likes and almost 26,000 retweets overnight.
She continued: “They are already subjected to so much violence and scrutiny. Leave her alone and focus on the real war on women. It’s happening in the courts and legislatures of this country.”
The fans gave Carter’s statement a round of applause write: “You are 100% spot on and THANK YOU.”
“Thank you Lynda. I’m always grateful for your allies and your willingness to stand up for us,” another fan said.
A user wrote: “You never stopped being Wonder Woman! Absolute queen!”
Hollywood stars like Bette Midler and Macy Gray have caused outrage in recent days with their statements on the trans community.
Midler wrote on Monday; “WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being deprived of our rights to our bodies, our lives and even our names! They no longer call us “women”; They call us “birth people” or “menstruators” and even “people with vaginas”! Don’t let them wipe you out! Every person on earth owes you!”
The First Wives Club actress was met with backlash on Twitter, with many slamming her and arguing her words weren’t true.
Responding to the hate, Midler backed down, writing on Tuesday: “PEOPLE OF THE WORLD! My tweet about women was in response to this fascinating and well-written article in the July 3 NYT. It wasn’t intended to be anything exclusive or transphobic in what I said; it wasn’t about that.”
R&B singer Macy Gray has been accused of transphobia when she recently spoke to Piers Morgan, saying that to be a woman you have to be born with “boobs” and a “vagina”.
“Just because you change your parts doesn’t make you a woman,” she continued.
Gray also contradicted her words, telling Fox News on Tuesday, “I have nothing but love for the LGBTQ+ and transgender community and have been a supporter since day 1. My statement to Piers Morgan was grossly misunderstood. i hate nobody I respect everyone’s right to be comfortable in their body and to live their own truth.”
