Why They Called Oprah Lesbian


The Week


Augest 4-11, 2006


Jenice Armstrong from the Philadelphia Daily News is quoted  saying that Oprah gets lots of bad press simply because people want this powerful woman to" be taken down a level" by calling her a Lesbian.


Yo! How insulting is that?!!!! That's like saying that we women :A. don't deserve power or popularity by in large adn so when we get it:B. we should be taken down and : C. We are sooo dumb that we think saying that someone has a ceratin sexual preference is taking ehr down  a notch???? What are we chopped liver?

Who cares if she is really?  I mean it really doesn't make her deeds or her any less of a person.  I don't like the fact that they stereotype lesbians in all the same way and I don't like the fact that people feel the need to call a woman a bitch or a lesbian if she isn't the old fashion typical stereotypical woman.  It is sad that in these times that people find the need to label others in such a fashion.

I agree with the previous comment! I think many people do place gay people at a lower status & because she is a strong African American Women (2 typical lower levels already) & it is not bringing her down because so many love her, they thought lets try another label! UGH! I don't think many would mind even if she was. Heck it might be the best thing if she was but I don't care one way or the other. Her sexual behavior is personal to her & should be no one else's business. If people worried about themselves as much as they worried and spent time gossiping on others they would be better off.

Nat, I am totally with you on this.
First off Oprah is wonderful.......................
She is a great example to ALL people.
I have said this before and I will say it again................
A PERSONS SEXUAL ORIENTATION OR PREFERENCE..................
DOES NOT DEFINE THEIR CHARACTER.............
A persons Character is defined by whats in their hearts.....

I think it's kinda weird to even consider someone's sexual preference, if anyone does , arent' they sorta strange, like maybe a voyeur?

A lesbian wouldn't let herself get that fat.

I'm with you, dear. Those who think sexual preference defines a person are sad individuals. And as others have expressed so what? I think I sense jealousy there.

I like what Ms Armstrong has to say!!!
Oprah says she isn't, honestly, it won't make a difference to who she is or what she does. She's way too cemented in American culture to be shaken by such rumours. And its sad that people can't understand what it's like to just have a long lasting and deep female friendship!
