People did not speak on rape, and she did it. It helped a lot of people come out of their shame and take control of their lives.
She spoke about Aids, and if you thought one way before you thought another after seeing her shows on how terribly one gay man was treated in his home town. You started seeing gay as an adjective to people.
I now watch Modern Family, because of Oprah. They have a gay couple who cracks me up. I love all the families on that show. They are Americans. LOL.
She gave us countless people who have their own shows now, because of him, and some of these people help their viewers in their own way.
When you see Oprah's family, you actually see your family -- for the most part -- and you know that if Oprah can make it with all the crap she has gone through than so can you.
