Instead of apologizing to the gays, Wendy Williams needs to fix herself

What a girl wants depends on the girl, and what Wendy Williams really really wants is as obvious as the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ agenda: She wants traditional gender roles.

During the February 13 episode of her eponymous daytime talk show, Wendy explained the Parks and Recreations twist on Valentine’s Day...
