Something I noticed about Oprah.

12 Oct

It’s not a criticism but I think Oprah is newly obsessed with transgender individuals. Ever since the book Middlesex(which I own in hardcover & really have to read one of these days, since I do love Jeffrey Eugenides).
I mean, I love them too – I think they’re really brave and it’s great that they’re embracing what they really feel. But this is the 3rd or 4th episode I’ve seen advertised on my CBS affiliate that has transsexuals as subject.
I’ll say this: at least she’s giving them airtime. The one episode I saw last week had 2 young adults on – one was a 17 year old former girl & the other was a 21 year old former boy. Oprah was extremely respectful and kind toward them. And today, there are transgender families on. I’ll have to watch.

    I only get to see her on Fridays. I never used to watch her(she has too many of her celebrity friends on, I think) but when she has real people on, I will watch.
