When comedian/TV talk show host Chelsea Handler isn’t going on unhinged Twitter rants against President Donald Trump and other elected Republicans, she’s opining on members of his administration. Nothing wrong with that in and of itself, except that in doing the latter she sometimes defeats the purpose of her feminist message (and it’s not the first time). For example, take a look at the following Tweets, sent from her account late last week and over the weekend and directed towards White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
Regarding the disturbing stories that have recently come out of the woodwork about Harvey Weinstein: I understand for some – many – women across the spectrum – it takes a lot of courage to speak up about sexual harassment/abuse/assault in their respective industries, for various reasons.
My latest at Independent Journal Review is an opinion piece that discusses Pure Pizza, a trendy pizzeria here in Charlotte that has been thrust into the national spotlight after a customer and friend of the owner recently posted a picture of the owner’s unisex bathroom policy on social media, in place for five months or so.

Courtesy of a retweet yesterday, I came across a column journo, author, and business woman Soledad O’Brien praised and shared with her audience on Twitter, one that was written by a Facebook executive by the name of Margaret Gould Stewart.

More on that in a minute.
