Oprah apparently has a hard time getting her head around lesbianism, and yet it seems she’s also completely fascinated by the topic. Still, it’s hard to believe that anyone with the level of exposure to media, pop culture, and people that she has, can be such a dumb-ass.
Check out this interview with Dr. Lisa Diamond, author of Sexual Fluidity: Understanding Women’s Love and Desire (who’s kind of hot, BTW) on the show “Women Leaving Men For Other Women” (Uh, Oprah, we call that “coming out”.) Bless you, Dr. Diamond, for your patience!
Oprah’s tabloid fascination with lesbians seems especially ironic because she has battled rumors for years that she’s in a relationship with her BFF Gayle King. I’d like to think she’s really in a secret three-way with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton.
