    Default Oprah to readers: 'If we were gay, we would tell you'

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Oprah Winfrey and her friend Gayle King want to be clear: they are not gay.

    In the August issue of O, the Oprah Magazine, the talk-show host explains that some people misunderstand her close friendship with King.

    "I understand why people think we're gay," she says. "There isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women. So I get why people have to label it -- how can you be this close without it being sexual?"

    In a long article, Winfrey, 52, and King converse about their 30 years of friendship and "four-times-a-day phone calls."

    The two friends say they would have no problem telling the public if they were in a sexual relationship.

    "The truth is, if we were gay, we would tell you, because there's nothing wrong with being gay," says King.

    Says Winfrey: "Something about this relationship feels otherworldly to me, like it was designed by a power and a hand greater than my own. Whatever this friendship is, it's been a very fun ride."
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton

    A little bit of over-explaining there. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I swear sometimes Oprah's a bit scary.

    So true. One of the most heartbreaking things in life was discovering that many lesbians in the real world (and it's places of employment) bore not the slightest resemblance to the ones in Penthouse magazine. In fact, several were more macho than I'd ever be.
