Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 10, 1973 - THE LETHBR1DGE HERALD _ 15 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Are you brave enough to print this? We will see. Recently I read where two men were legally married. What I don't understand is why'they had to resort to trickery to get married. Why are homosexual relationships considered illegal? Why is it considered a sex crime when there is no victim, such as rape or child - molesting? Why do some police departments hire men to tempt the homosexual and then arrest him for being a pervert? It seems to me this is much more dishonorable, much baser conduct than loving someone of the same sex. Why must people like me sneak around behind the backs of parents and relatives so that we don't shame or "disgrace" them? Why can't I hold hands with my lover in public and dance with him the way heterosexual lovers do? Surely love is not indecent, to be scorned and despised. The world needs less hate and more love - any kind of love. I do not understand why so many people do not understand. Can you explain it?- One DEAR ONE: You read wrong about the "legal" marriage. In no state in the union can members of the same sex marry. I agree that police entrapment is a rotten device and I am against it. I also agree that most victimless crimes should be taken off the books. Why can't members of the same sex kiss publicly and dance together end proclaim their love as heterosexual lovers do? Because homosexuality is unnatural. It is, in spite of what some psychiatrists say, a sickness - a dysfunction. In our culture, in the year 1973, we are not conditioned to accept homosexuality as the normal human condition. For 13 years I have been pleading for compassion and understanding and equal rights for homosexuals, and I will continue to do so. But I do not believe homosexual activity is normal behavior and unfortunately most people have a tendency to equate any and all abnormalities with sin, disgrace and shame. ^ * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I flipped when I read your column about the wife who wanted to get in touch with the other woman in her husband's life and force him to choose between them. I hope she gets her wish. It could be the best, thing in the world for everyone concerned. I met "The Other Woman" and I was very much surprised. She was no tramp. She was a high-class girl, very refined, beautifully groomed and a highly intelligent person with a charming and gracious manner. My husband picked her instead of me and I am not the least bit bitter about it. In fact, we are all better off - especially our children. Instead of listening to us fight all the time, they now live in a home that is peaceful and quiet. They see more of their daddy now than they did before. (It took a divorce to make him appreciate them.) I am going to pick up the pieces and make something of myself. It won't be easy, but it will be a better life than living with a man who doesn't want me and is eating his heart out to be with somebody else.-There Now DEAR NOW: I might be wrong, but I have a strong suspicion that you are not the wife, but the "high-class, refined, beautifully groomed, highly intelligent, charming and gracious girl-friend" who wishes the wife would let the guy go so everyone could "jive happily ever after." Why do I think so? Because wives who lose out don't write such letters. Girlfriends who are waiting for the guy to get a divorce do. WEIGHTr WATCHERS IF YOU WANT TO LOSE 10, 20, 50 EVEN 100 LBS.

Soviet discrimination New York Times Service MOSCOW - Men's ties have lately been given priority over women's undergarments from economic planners, and Kom-somolskaya Pravda is worried about it. The monthly edition of another publication, Commercial Herald, a new magazine for Soviet consumers, reported here that the ladies already had it bad, especially in rural areas or such far-off regions as Siberia. Whereas the average fashion-conscious Leningrad lady spent $11.55 on bras, panties and the like in 1970 and the average Moscow woman $7.97, the Herald reported, ladies in Siberia were getting only $1.85 hi underclothing a year. Inadequate supplies, poor-quality- goods, and bad marketing were cited as reasons. Moreover, many average-sized Soviet women complain privately that they simply cannot find form-fitting, fashionable undergarments in local stores because so many factories cater to big women. "Medium sizes are hard to find," said a Muscovite. But for months, Komsomols-kaya Pravda, the Young Communist newspaper, has been taking up the cause for the menfolk, ' chiding the ministry of light industry for failing to provide enough bright, modish ties - especially wide ties - for fashion - minded Soviet men. _ "Fashionable ties have practically disappeared from Moscow counters" and when a rare shipment does appeal", people spend hours in lines 50 yards or longer, the newspaper reported. Or, it said, they turn to speculators who ooerate openly on the sidewalks of downtown Moscow selling ties for five rubles ($5.50) apiece, and these are ties that would not turn heads in the west.
