I’ll take the Governor over Oprah anyday! Am I the only one out there who felt that Oprah’s treatment of Governor McGreevey reeked of internalized homophobia? He was sincere, honest, and committed to speaking truths. Oprah was petty, shallow, and grumpy. I know a lot of people think that Oprah’s dismissive nature with the gays is because she’s in the closet. Well, I have another theory: I think at some point in her life, Oprah fell in love with a gay man and her heart was broken. Now, she blames her loveless life on the gays. It’s just a theory. Regardless of the reason, I found her treatment of Governor McGreevey insensitive.
