Talk show host Wendy Williams is being accused of a wide range of intolerant behaviors after a rant on her show in which she told gay men to "stop wearing our skirts and our heels."


Williams was talking about the holiday "Galentine's Day," created by the TV show Parks & Recreation, which celebrates female friendships the day before Valentine's Day.

When she saw men clapping along with the women after a joke, she commented:

"If you're a man and you're clapping, you're not even a part of this. I don't care if you're gay. You don't get a [menstrual period] every 28 days. You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through."

Williams then went on to say to gay men:

"Stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Girls, what do we have for ourselves? You'll never be the woman that we are, no matter how gay!"

Internet users everywhere denounced Williams's comments as homophobic and transphobic.



Wendy Williams seems to have some trouble avoiding controversy.

Earlier this year, she had to issue an apology after making fun of a scar on Joaquin Phoenix's lip.

In 2018, she said she was "sick" of the #MeToo movement.


Many pointed out notable LGBTQ celebrities who wear high heels and skirts.


Transphobia is no laughing matter.

Before long, Williams had issued an apology to her fans.

But for many, the damage had been done.


Wendy Williams will have to be more careful in the future—there's a fine but important line between speaking frankly about gender and being ignorant and intolerant.

What's on the menu? What are the specials? What's popular? What's your favorite item?Tell me everything.

Back when I was in hospitality, these are part of the litany of questions I would get from visitors to our country. It became a bit irritating. I should've made a sign with "Regular FAQs."

I didn't have a lot of answers, due to the fact that I find American food pretty run of the mill. I'm going have to be schooled on what is considered extra yummy only in the states.

Although I must admit, the shoe definitely swaps feet when I travel. Tell me everything. The rest of the world is far more compelling with their menus.

Redditor u/Well_shi__-_- wanted to discuss what menu items we all need to discuss by asking:

What common foods in your country are considered delicacies by foreigners?

Standards for dating people are definitely very varied, because we as people are varied, and we as people are flawed. Little things might get to us from the get go, causing us to be very very picky about who exactly we let through a couple rounds of dating.

There's nothing funny about having an employee show their true colors after you've already hired them. Upon hiring, they seemed completely normal, pleasant, like they would be a good worker. Then as they get the lay of the land, they show that they actually have a different personality when the manager isn't around to see.
