After buying vintage First Edition Edna St. Vincent Millay books, earrings, and a book about how to be the perfect hostess circa 1955, while heading to the fetish sex shop a few doors down, my best friend asked, “During this uprising against Trump, have you noticed that Oprah has gone silent?”
Standing over 50 shades of my choking phobia…
I was astonished to realize that he was correct. Where the fuck was Oprah?! Our fearless beacon of activism, women’s rights, African American’s rights, equality, prison reform and so much more.
Upon returning to my hotel, I scrambled to find my iPad, sandwiched between two sizes of Maxi-pads (each month I bleed so much, I think my eggs are freaked it will be their last shedding of my uterine lining.) I searched for Oprah and the women’s march, Oprah anti-Trump, Oprah’s thoughts on Trump 2017, and finally resorted to, does Oprah fucking hate Trump as much as the rest of America does?
Why is one of the most vocal, astute orators holding her tongue during a political revolution that most of us have never witnessed in our lifetime? Why isn’t she speaking at marches or rallying women to keep fighting? Why hasn’t she called him a racist, misogynist who is making America insane? Why isn’t she calling him out on his lies?
WHERE. IS. OPRAH.
My fellow Scissorheads, your thoughts?
