Jenna Jameson doesn’t agree with Playboy’s decision to feature a transgender playmate.

In a series of tweets, the former adult film star and Playboy cover model bashed the magazine for including model Ines Rau in its November/December issue.

“So Playboy just announced it will be featuring its first transgender playmate,” Jameson, 43, tweets.

When asked why she had a problem with it, Jameson tweeted “Because I think it’s setting fire to an iconic brand and pandering to this ridiculous PC world we live in.”

She went on to compare the situation to transgender women competing with cis-gender women in athletics.

“I have a problem with it just like I have a problem with a transgender competing against biological women in sports,” Jameson tweets.

The Huffington Post reports that Jameson also liked offensive tweets including one that states “God created a man and woman for a reason. Only mentally ill humans would destroy such a great gift.”

Jameson insisted that despite her views she isn’t transphobic.

“Just because I don’t agree with a trans person being in Playboy doesn’t mean I’m ‘transphobic’.People these days with all their ‘phobics,'” Jameson wrote in one tweet.

“Just because Miss USA won’t let me compete (because I’m an ex pornstar) doesn’t mean they don’t love me. I love my gay and trans peeps,” she added in another.

She also spoke with Fox News saying that the decision is the magazine’s attempt to “stay relevant.”

“I just think it’s a ridiculous attempt by Playboy to stay relevant. It is a foolish decision that alienates its consumer base,” Jameson says.
