The actress known for the role of Phoebe in ‘Charmed’ series posted an Instagram message in the wake of International Women’s Day, mentioning transgender women and referring to them as sisters. One of the followers asked Alyssa whether these words could mean that she was transgender. “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,” the actress replied and came under fire for it, as she is obviously not trans, not disabled, not a person of color, not a gay man and quite unlikely a lesbian (because she dated men). Milano apologized, noting that she just wanted to express empathy and solidarity with those groups of people, to tell them that she feels their pain and they are not alone, so that they can rely on her like she is one of them.
