Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tu.nloy, July 21, 1970 THC LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am In a state of shock as I write this letter. I don't know what to think or where to turn. I am sending you a copy of the form I received from my daughter along with her fervent plea that I sign it. She has made it clear tliat if I refuse to sign the form she will dis- regard my wishes and do as she pleases when she is 21. The form, as you can see, is printed on stationery from the offices of two physicians whose specialty is psychiatry. I took this form to my family doctor who checked with the American Medical Association. The doctors are indeed prac- ticing medicine. The form reads as follows: "This is to certify that I fully understand that my daugh- ter, Miss-------, aged 19, wishes to have medical procedures performed so that her sex may be changed to a male. I hereby agree to whatever hormonal, radiotherapy and surgi- cal procedures are deemed necessary for this transformation. I am (am not) willing to accept financial responsibility for these procedures. Notary: State----------County: Signature: Ann, I have known for three years that my daughter is a Lesbian and I have learned to live with the heartache, but the thought of her wanting to have this operation is more than I can stand. I telephoned the doctors and told them what I thought of them and their form. Of course I will not put my signature to it. I am 46, divorced, and sell real estate. I haven't been a perfect mother but this blow has knocked the pins from under me. I have a married daughter, age 24, another daughter, 16, who says her sister is "sick" and a boy, 14, who says his sister is crazy. If you have any words of wisdom that might wake up this girl please help me, for God's sake. Mrs. No Name Mother DEAR MOTHER: This girl needs more than waking up. Individuals who so desperately desire to be of another sex that they are willing to have their bodies mutilate! are severe- ly -disturbed. The best authorities Of the transsexual operation are at the University of Minnesota and Johns Hopkins'. These author- ities are not enthusiastic about the results. When Dick Cavett attempted to drag me into a discussion of transsexual opera- tions on his TV show several months ago, I refused to discuss the subject in the presence of a transvestite who was consider- ing the procedure. I could say nothing supportive and didn't want to embarrass the guy who wobbled out in high heels, wearing a shoulder length wig and spoke so glowingly of his scheduled wedding to "a wonderful fellow." You can do nothing, Mother, except hope your daughter will co-operate in therapy that takes hold before she reaches her twenty-first birthday and can have the surgery without your signature. Drinking may be "in" to the kids you run it can put you "out" for keeps. You can cool it and stay popu- lar. Read "Booze And You For Teen Agers Only."

The report says children wel- come Canada's freedom in the school system and social life and the more permissive moral- ity, while parents continue to believe in the ethics of the Old World where the head of a fam- ily exercises far more power than in Canada. Rhona Swarbrick, teacher at Earlscourt junior public school, says many immigrant parents believe Canada's school system is responsible for the conflict between parents and children. About 80 per cent of Earls- court's student population of come from immigrant; homes. Miss Swarbrick says Italian parents particularly believe that schools should have more au- thority and teach children to work, obey and behave. BLAME MORAL, DECAY Many Italian families blame what they believe is moral de- cay in Canadian families as be- ing a disrupting influence on the Italian way of life. Kurt Danziger, a psychology professor at York University who completed a four-year study of family conflict among Toronto's Italian immi- grants, says the clash between parents and children is a bitter paradox. 'It was for the sake of their children, primarily, that the parents came to Canada. They wanted to give their children a better future in a new land. "But they didn't realize that the children would adapt far more quickly to the Canadian way of life than they could themselves. The children be- come assimilated into Canadian society mainly through the schools, and the parents tend to remain outside and cling to their old ways." But Prof. Danziger believes the rift between immigrant par- ents and their children is not any greater than what is known as the generation gap between youngsters and heir parents. But, he says, the conflict is of a different type, with the greatest difficulty of adjustment relating to the posi- tion of the father in the family. social worker who came to Can- ada 11 years ago, says child- rearing in Europe and particu- larly Italy is based on the as- The One Cent Miracle A Calgary housewife wrote to the Unitarian Service Commit- tee, "I won at a bingo Wednesday night and have add- ed 23 cents.

"Applying these same princi- ples to family life in Toronto in 1970 can lead to she says. "Italian parents1 are dismayed at the extrava- gant tastes their children have in clothes. Of course, the chil- dren are only trying to keep up with Canadian fashions, but this doesn't go down well with the older generation."
