Wanda Sykes Wants You To Know She Does Not Like Men’s Balls

In a recent interview funny lady Wanda Sykes expressed how relaxed she is that President Obama won reelection for president, joking that she was nervous of what the alternative outcome could have been:

“I’m very happy he won, Oh my God, I was so nervous. I was on pins and needles. ‘Cause you was hearing, ‘Oh Romney’s son, he owns all the vote machines,’ and all this stuff. I was like, ‘Come on, don’t cheat.’”

If you remember, Sykes did a two part election coverage panel on the LOGO chsnnel promoting LGBT to go out and vote, even joking through the tension filled race:

“If you are lesbian, gay, bi, trans, straight, black, hispanic, white, republican, democrat — yes, Madonna, I’m talking to you — you can’t sit out this race,” Sykes urges on NewNowNext Vote with Wanda Sykes. “Don’t bitch and whine later when a villain in a black mustache is tying you down to an ultrasound table.”

When asked if gay marriage was better for her than straight marriage she said this:

“Oh gay marriage. Gay marriage is way better. Way better,” 

“I mean, that’s what I wanted. Straight marriage; I was just looking at him and looking at the balls all night,” she joked with a sour face. “No thank you. I do not miss balls.”

“Now it’s all beautiful, it’s just all beautiful. Plus I got a white woman, so, you know, my life is good.”

She has to be one of the most underrated comedians of our time. I want her to get a new show so I’m signal boosting, basically.

Procter & Gamble Hires Wanda Sykes For Detergent Campaign, Cue The One Million Shrews!

Procter & Gamble has hired openly gay comedian and actress Wanda Sykes as its new official Gain® Scent spokesperson and matchmaker. Wanda, who came out as a lesbian in 2008 is the latest high-profile gay pitch-person to back a mainstream company.

Ellen DeGeneres was hired earlier this year, sparking calls for a boycott from the conservative One Million Moms organization.

Will there be a call to boycott Proctor & Gamble also?

In 2004, Procter and Gamble opposed a statute that would deny gays and lesbians from special civil rights protection in the company’s headquarters city of Cincinnati. The American Family Association called for a boycott but P&G did not relent.

With Right Wing extremist now boycotting LGBT friendly companies such as General Mills, Starbucks, The Home Depot, Kraft Foods, JC Penny, Toys R Us, EA Games, and Girl Scout Cookies.  If they add the monolithic P&G Corporation to their boycott list which carries over 24 brands across beauty, healthcare, and food including , Pampers diapers, Gillette  razors, and Duracell batteries they’ll end up sitting in thatch shacks in the woods, gnawing on roots, and wiping their asses with leaves.

In other words right where they belong.

Video – Wanda Sykes Responds To The NAACP’s Support Of Same Sex Marriage

Wanda Sykes responded to both President Obama’s declaration that he now supports same sex marriage and yesterdays surprise announcement by the board of the NAACP that now tthe NAACP has come out in full support of same sex marriage.

Said Wanda:

“Yea! I’m so proud of the NAACP! I mean – this is huge! Really is huge because the NAACP – their roots are so instilled in the church. That’s where their meetings and all of that – are held – in churches. So to come out and support same sex marriage –I’m so thrilled that they have gotten past the point that it’s not about religion, it’s about rights. Marriage really doesn’t have anything to do with religion. That’s why athetists get married. It’s about all the rights that comes along with it. So I’m very proud of the NAACP right now and I think I’m going to join! Maybe I’ll up my membership now.”

Openly Gay Entertainers Cheyenne Jackson and Wanda Sykes Weigh In On Tracy Morgan’s Homophobic Rant In Nashville, TN

Openly gay Cheyenne Jackson who co-stars with Morgan on 30 Rock and openly lesbian comedian Wanda Sykes weigh in on Tracey Morgan’s disgusting anti-gay “comedy routine”

Cheyenne Jackson said:

“I am disgusted and appalled by Tracy Morgan’s homophobic rant. The devastating repercussions of hate-filled language manifest in very real ways for today’s LGBTQ youth. I’ve known Tracy for two years, spent many long hours with him on set, and I want to believe that this behavior is not at the core of who he is. I’m incredibly disappointed by his actions, and hope that his apology is sincere.”

Meanwhile Wanda Sykes not only took took Morgan also fellow African-​American comedian Chris Rock and also Roland Martin, a CNN journalist, both of whom came out in strong support of what they see as Morgan’s right to say what he wants, without criticism.

Sykes said, “I do believe in free speech, but for a youth in TN or any other numerous place, Tracy just yelled, ‘Fire,’ in a crowded theater,” adding, ”Morgan “is just a dumb comic,” but also  she didn’t “believe Tracy would be so ignorant in LA, because we have a mayor, a city council,and police chief who believes we are all equal.”

When done with Morgan then set her sights on fellow comedian Chris Rock, who had said, also via Twitter, “I dont know about you, but I dont want to live in world where Tracy Morgan cant say foul inappropriate shit.”To which Sykes responded again via Twitter: Ok, piss’d reading, “I don’t want 2 live n a world where Tracy can’t say…” I Do! U Keep the world, just break me off an evolved country,”

But Wanda, God bless her soul wasn’t done yet.  CNN reporter Roland Martin, who spent a good part of the day on Twitter and Facebook vigorously debating his followers over Tracy Morgan’s comments, and ultimately wrote a column of his own in support of Tracy Morgan, titled, “WTF? Comic Tracy Morgan Has Offensive Material? To which Wanda shot back: Ro, I love and respect you, so I feel that I can tell you that your column is some bullshit. We can do better.” and “Tracy has the right to say whatever he wants to say, just like we have the right to say, not acceptable. We used to picnic to watch public hangings, but WE figured out, that was some sick shit.”

All Hail Wanda Sykes!

2010 GLAAD Media Awards – Another Gay Organization, Another Glitzy Party For The Gay Elite

The GLAAD Media Awards which salute fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives in the media was held Saturday night in a glitzy and expensive ceremony at the Hyatt Regency. (Your donation dollars at work!) Winners – chosen from 152 nominees in 32 categories – were awarded at a March ceremony in New York, while the remainder will be presented at a San Francisco ceremony in June.Last nights ceremony spotlighted the “major” catagories.

Glee won “Best Comedy” and “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy told the audience that next season “Kurt” (Chris Colfer) would have a boyfriend and they would be school prom kings. (OMG, SPOILER MUCH MURPHY?!) Colfer who is is gay; along with lesbian actress Jane Lynch were both on hand.

Other winners included Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” for outstanding reality program and “A Single Man” for outstanding wide release film. “A Single Man” director Tom Ford wasn’t on hand to receive his trophy. His partner Richard Buckley accepted the award on Ford’s behalf because the filmmaker was stranded in London thanks to the volcanic cloud of ash.

Constance McMillen, the lesbian Mississippi teenager who challenged her school district’s ban of same-sex prom dates, presented comedian-actress Wanda Sykes with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is given by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation to an openly gay member of the entertainment community for their work toward eliminating homophobia.

“I’m willing to give this award to you,” Sykes teased McMillen, “but I’m not gonna do it. It means a lot to me.”

Also openly lesbian Iron Chef” Cat Cora presented actress-director Drew Barrymore with the Vanguard Award, which honors efforts to increase visibility and understanding of the gay community.  “The thing that means the most to me about an evening like this, and why I want to fight and be outspoken about this is because there are so many people who are in desperate need of families,” Barrymore said.

Adam Lambert, the glam-rocking “American Idol” runner-up who raised eyebrows with his racy performance at last year’s American Music Awards, capped off the ceremony hosted by transgender actress Candis Cayne and gay actor Wilson Cruz with a performance of his tunes “Music Again” and “Fever.” He ended by pleading for diversity within the gay community.  (Perhaps Adam should have pleaded for diversity within the human race.)

Another party for the elite held with your donations.

Fucking beautiful.

Friday night, on thw season premiere of “Real Time With Bill Maher”, Wanda Sykes stopped by and talked about gays in the military in only the way that Wanda can.

“They’ve embraced DADT, but they’re all for gay people going off and getting shot,” said Wanda, who was only one-upped by Family Guy’s stangely hot and sexy : “If you’re sitting there watching TV in your undershirt, worry about terrorism, worrying about your family, and at the same time objecting to the person who’s out there putting his life on the line so your family can be protected, you’re the worst kind of fucking asshole there is.”

Wanda’s Best Line:  “Gay soldiers aren’t RuPaul/Elton John gay, they’re brokeback mountain gay”
