Not to name names, but somebody apparently felt that he or she was too mature to post a link to a site called Oprah’s Vajayjay and so instead sent it to me. I would like to thank this nameless person for making me laugh because I am immature. If you don’t feel like clicking through, here’s the sole content on the page:
As I’ve mentioned before on Skepchick, the word “vajayjay,” as used by Oprah and her ilk is indicative of the way Oprah addresses women’s health issues in general: dumbed down, wishy washy, cutesy, pseudoscientific. She is creating a world in which the word “vagina” is too dirty to utter but it’s totally okay to have Dr. Christiane Northrup go on at length about redirecting her “chi” in order to orgasm.
I’ve been a bit remiss in not covering the current (and hopefully rising) Oprah backlash, trusting that you’re all paying attention to the Quickies and noticed the big Salon and Newsweek stories (I love that they used the same photo of Oprah I chose for my London Skeptics in the Pub talk, though I LOLed mine). It’s fantastic to think that our anti-Oprah efforts aren’t going unnoticed, and I suspect that this high-profile criticism will continue to grow. Will it grow large enough to combat the enormous Oprah empire? Who knows. But hey, let’s keep trying.
With that in mind, I hope that the owner of OprahsVajayjay.com expands to include more clips of her mind-blowing vagina-related idiocy. There’s enough material out there, after all.
