Ophra, Wonder Woman and sexism
Directly from Orange County, our correspondent Finito sent us this breakthrough news: The famous Oprah Winfrey barged full force against the kind Wonder Woman about her name and other issues. Here's an extract of the show.
"Have you ever realized how sexist it is for you to go out calling yourself Wonder 'Woman'? Couldn't you just call yourself Wonder Person? Who are you representing anyway? Woman kind or humankind?" Diana dodged the ball by saying that in her original tongue, which we assume is Greek, "Woman kind" and "humankind" were just about the same. Then added: "I'm sorry if I offended anyone. I'll talk to my publicist about a possible name change."
And then, Oprah continued. "Anyway. Is it true that most Amazons are lesbians?" Surprised by the newest question, Diana's eyes reddened and had to be comforted by Ophra's heart felt hug that brought tears to many viewers around the world. "I do understand," concluded Oprah with caring words. "By the way, are those real?," she asked pointing at Diana's breasts.
We think some of the footage got deleted because we got no answer to that.
