AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams came under fire over her comments about gay men in the latest episode of her show. The television host was dragged on the internet after she told men to "stop wearing our skirts and our heels" while talking about Valentine's Day.
"You don't get a [menstruation] every 28 days," she said on "The Wendy Williams Show". "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." She added, "Gay men, you'll never be the women that we are. No matter how gay."
She was soon flooded with criticisms online. "Really? What sort of ignorance is coming out of your mouth regarding gay men wanting to be women!! Really Wendy?" one commented. Another wrote, "If you dont like seeing men dressing up like women then i dont like women trying to be like us stop playing sports stop drinking beer stop wearing sweat pants stop using deep voices."
While she criticized gay men, Wendy offered support for Dwyane Wade's transgender daughter Zaya. "The quicker you figure out who you are or who you wanna be in life, the easier life gets when you get older," she said. "That's what I've discovered."
She was overwhelmed with emotion as she added, "At 12 years old, a lot of us didn't know who we were and we don't figure it out until we get to high school or college or into our 30s."
"I feel like, with all the bullying with kids ... good for her for figuring out that lane of who she wants to be," she continued. "At least she's got that and a supportive mother and father. For those of you who don't understand it or don't like it, don't say anything. This is a child who's figured out more about her life than we have when we were 12, alright?"
