Wendy Williams Slammed After Saying Gay Men Should 'Stop Wearing Our Skirts and Our Heels'
Wendy Williams is coming under fire for some controversial comments she made about the LGTBTQ community on Thursday’s episode of her self-titled talk show.
“I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days,” Williams added. “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.”
“And stop wearing our skirts and our heels,” she continued, referencing the trend of gender fluid fashion, made popular by stars like Billy Porter. “Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?”
“Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are,” Williams said. “No matter how gay.”
You Can Finally Stop Netflix From Autoplaying Videos. Here's How
Using Netflix, until today, had always been an exercise in timing, especially when looking for something to watch. That’s because, without fail, hovering on a particular title for too long would activate the streaming service’s dreaded preview autoplay feature, presenting you with a trailer you never asked for and forcing you to track the seconds before moving from one title to the next in an effort to avoid just muting your television out of exasperation.
It’s a more benign example of what’s referred to as a “dark pattern,” an engagement tactic used by software companies to persuade users to browse, read, watch, or otherwise interact with an app or service, encouraging addictive behavioral patterns. But Netflix has finally given users a choice when it comes to previewing titles, and now offers an option to disable the feature entirely.
Hallmark Channel Draws the Line at Kissing, Pulls Gay Wedding Ads
Hallmark Channel, the romance movie purveyor so ubiquitous it now has its own convention, has decided to pull an ad featuring lesbian brides kissing, following a campaign by the conservative group One Million Moms. 25,000 people signed a petition started by One Million Moms earlier this week that urged Hallmark to remove same-sex wedding ads. According to The New York Times, the ad was pulled because Hallmark Channel does not accept ads “that are deemed controversial.”

People Are Freaking Out About the Dicks on TV This Week
I’m just going to put it out there: I don’t watch enough television as someone who writes about pop culture. To be fair to myself though, there’s too much television to watch. One just can’t know all of the good shows on television. Nor which shows may not be good but that you should watch because … reasons. Thank god for Twitter.
The thing about Twitter is that when something good is happening on a show, someone’s going to tweet about it. And a lot. Whether it’s the fact that the plot is good, or there was just one epic scene, someone’s going to post it. Many shows, particularly on Netflix, count on this as a way that possible fans will discover the show. But sometimes it’s not the whole plot, it’s not an entire scene … it’s just … a clip. Or a still. Especially when its explicit.

How to fix your TV settings to make your screen look perfect
t feels like it's been months since the premiere of "The Long Night," a highly anticipated episode of HBO's Game of Thrones featuring the longest battle sequence in the history of film. Like the rest of the fantasy epic's final season, it was divisive; some fans found it to be an enthralling example of the series at its best, while others found it to be an unsatisfying and abrupt ending to a major storyline.
One thing people on both sides of the aisle agreed upon was that it's a little difficult to see what's going on during the episode. Fans contended that it was too dark, while the episode's cinematographer insisted people needed to recalibrate their TVs.
Whether or not it was an appropriate response to criticism, he might've been onto something: Plenty of people buy TVs without ever touching the display settings. This can lead to situations where shows and movies look flat-out wrong.
