Whitney Cummings Responds To Sexist “Two And A Half Men” Jerkwad

“You came out of one. You probably spend lot of your time trying to get into one. This is kind of a mixed message. Had I known vaginas were so offensive and appalling to men, I certainly wouldn’t be talking about them.”

Whitney Cummings Defends Lana Del Rey’s Right To Be A Human Being Who Makes Mistakes

In Defense Of “Whitney”

Give Whitney Cummings A Shot

There’s a lot of female comedians we love — Tina Fey, Kristin Wiig, Margaret Cho — but Whitney Cummings has a special place in our heart. For starters, her name is a joke in and of itself.
