    Evan Rachel Wood is not pleased.

    The actress and new mother took to Twitter to vent her frustrations over the MPAA's edit of her new film Charlie Countryman.

    "After seeing the new cut of #CharlieCountryman I would like 2 share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a womans sexuality once again," she wrote in the beginning of her tweet spree.

    "The scene where the two main characters make 'love' was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people ‘uncomfortable' but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered."

    Wood went on to say that the edits spoke to a larger issue regarding gender equality.

    "This is a symptom of a society that wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex, especially when (gasp!) the man isn't getting off as well! Its hard for me to believe that had the roles been reversed it still would have been cut OR had the female character been raped it would have been cut," she explained.

    "Its time for people to GROW UP. Accept that [women] are sexual beings. Accept that some men like pleasuring [women]. Accept that [women] don't have to just be f--ked and say thank you. We are allowed and entitled to enjoy ourselves. Its time we put our foot down…thanks for listening."

    Shia LaBeouf stars alongside Wood and goes full frontal in the latest promotional snapshot for the film.

    The picture gives a glimpse of the star going nude in director Fredrik Bond's latest effort. "tune in, turn on, drop out - #CharlieCountryman 11/15," LaBeouf tweeted.
