‘I don’t rely on stereotypes and I don’t mock. I think everybody’s just being a bit sensitive’

SOUNDBITES — “I don’t rely on stereotypes and I don’t mock. But, I feel as though as a Black woman who happens to be big, I think there are a lot of stereotypes there too. I think everybody’s just being a bit sensitive. How many times have you heard me on the radio eat chicken and put the African drums behind me? You know what I’m saying? How many times have I been called a man — stereotypical — because I’m a big woman? Please — stop being so sensitive! I’m not for Prop. 8. My son is being raised understanding that Billy has two daddies or that Lisa has two mommies. So please, I know who I am, I know what I do and I know that stereotypes exist as Black, as gay, as tall, as big boobs. How many times do people think just because you have big boobs you’re an airhead? My boobs are big! Sensitivity!” —Incoming television host Wendy Williams on the notion she makes gays a punchline
