Chelsea Handler thinks she’s too opinionated for men

Los Angeles, Jan 15 (IANS) Actress and TV show host Chelsea Handler says men don’t want to date her because she’s too opinionated.

The 41-year-old, who has earlier dated rapper 50 Cent, says she may be “loud and proud”, but she feels some people also find her intimidating, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Explaining her love for Glennon Doyle Melton’s book “Love Warrior”, Handler told Elle magazine: “This is a book I always recommend to all the women in my life.”

“It’s a memoir about growing up as an opinionated girl and the effect that has on the way people treat you, particularly how some men will treat you. I very much identify with that, I’ve dealt with it my whole life.”

“It’s the reason why I’m single. Many men are put off by a woman who has an opinion. Apparently a lot of people find me intimidating but I’m loud and proud… in my opinion,” she added.

Meanwhile, Handler has called for internet trolls to have their accounts suspended, or even be prosecuted for their comments.

“There’s a strong argument for having heated discussions and disagreeing with somebody in an intelligent, respectable way, but the anonymity afforded to us by being online makes people nasty and behave with real vitriol…”

“We have to begin holding people accountable for the language they use online. If you say horrible things, your account should be blocked. If you issue a death threat, it’s a criminal act,” she added.
