The conventional wisdom is that Oprah Winfrey empowers women, teaching them self-esteem (actually, inflating their self-esteem way too much), and telling them to care about themselves before their husbands and families.
But the conventional wisdom is wrong. In yet another example of why the conventional wisdeom is wrong, today, on her daily talk show HRHSBotU [Her Royal Highness Supreme Being of the Universe] Oprah told America’s women that being a stripper is a great job if you’re a mom. You get to spend the whole day with your kids. And you only have to take off your clothes and be ogled by men who are total strangers at night. How convenient and empowering.
The 40-something transsexual-looking stripper and mom who was on the Oprah show today told us that she works “an 8-hour shift” as a sexual object, “from 8:00 p.m. to 2:45 a.m.” So, it’s official: Not only are strippers “great moms,” they are also great mathematicians. Well let’s hope this stripper is better at adding the dollars inserted into her g-string and cleavage than she is at figuring out the number of hours she works.
Oprah tells the audience and the rest of the world that we shouldn’t “judge.” Tell it to your mirror girlfriend, as you’ve spent over two decades judging conservatives, marriage, and men on the publicly broadcast airwaves. And everything else you haven’t judged and polluted the airwaves with–like today’s show–actually needed a little judging.
But, no worries, this stripper mom “has great abs,” and works out every morning, so, in Oprah’s eyes, that makes her a good person.
In fact, this stripper mom knows her job is so respectable that, until today, she lied and told people she is a “showroom model.” Oprah is worried that other parents will tell their kids they can’t be around stripper mom’s daughter and again tells America not to judge. I don’t have kids, but if I did, you’d better believe they wouldn’t go near a stripper’s kids. I know the kid didn’t choose her mom, but do you want your kids thinking stripping is a great lifestyle?
Incredibly, Oprah’s resident HAMAS-loving reporter, Lisa Ling, said she was “converted” to the view that stripping is a great way to be a working mom because you get to be with your kids all day. And Oprah said how hard life is for the average working woman and how good a life this seems to be.
Hmmm . . . funny how these died in the wool feminists are suddenly attacking the mandatory working-woman culture they and their movement created. Even more funny what their solution is . . . good old fashion slut-dom . . . for money.
Yup, this is what your kids are seeing on after-school TV and this is Oprah’s message of “empowerment” to women all over the world who see her show. Nothing about the life of drugs, prostitution, and other illicit behavior that many strippers get into. One “redeeming” thing: Most of the women who watch this horrible daily cult show simply are too fat and out of shape to be strippers. Thank Heaven for small favors.
Ironically, the arrogant, conceited Oprah is teaching an “online course” on how to live a better life. Is bumping and grinding part of the gig?
Very sad that American women take lessons and advice of any kind from this demented talk show host cult leader.
