Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann I Landers DEAR ANN I.ANUEKS: I'm have n good 1 enjoy good health ami am n happy homosexual. I'm what is known as a closet queen. No one would guess I go bolh ways. My parents arc all I ho lime finding lovely girls for me lo lake out 1 pretend lo IK grateful for their interest because I don't want them to suspect anything. But I really don't enjoy girls very much and I'm beginning to think it's not worth (he trouble. The problem is this: When I lake out the same girl more lhan once, my boyfriend gets very upset because he's afraid 1 am going "straight. If you think this letter too weird to print let me tell you it's a common problem in the gay world and a word of advice from you would be a big help. Please don't suggest that I seek psychiatric help. I do not consider homosexuality an illness. In fuel, I am n lot healthier emo- tionally than many of my heterosexual friends. Thank you. Gay Blade DEAR BLADE: In light of your apparent adjustment why not put an end to the masquerade? People are becoming more understanding and I say it's about time society slopped viewing all homosexuals as loathsome freaks. Another reason f suggest you put an end to the duplicity is because it's unfair to use girls as a cover. You'd be surprised if you knew how many naive women fall in love with homosexuals and arc heart- broken when they learn the truth. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My wife is one of those women who just loves to talk. About five years ago I got fed up and told her to stint up. We got into a terrific hassle and in order to appease her a little 1 said, "When Howard Hughes starts talking again, you have my permission lo blah all you want to and I'll never even I thought I had a safe het hut look what happened. The old crow hasn't shut up for weeks and I'm sick of it. Stie also has been belittling me among our friends by telling them bow wrong 1 was. Have you got a good answer for me? It In Trona DEAR IT: You don't need a good answer. You need a set cf good earplugs. Then practice nodding periodically saying, "Yes, Howard." DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell that snippy little lady who said she'd rather die lhan he like tier mother that she is already more like her mother than she thinks or she couldn't live in a bouse for ten years without cleaning it. A girt who is old enough to entertain young men is old enough to straighten up a house. To use her mother's laziness as an excuse is pretty stupid. Maybe that girl's mother is experiencing a difficult meno- pause. Some women become depressed when they go through the change and they simply haven't the energy to do house- work. My sisters and I never dreamed our mother was sick as she was. She didn't clean the house either so we girls had to clean it when we were expecting guests and how re- sented it! Mama died in her middle 4u's and it was a real shock to us. I hope the girl who wrote that nasty letter sees this one. It might open her eyes. Go Back In Canton DEAR CAN'T: Thanks for the eye opener. Unfortunately rome things don't become apparent unti! too late to do any- thing about them. YOILT letter is a fine example. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Jty husband and I have been argu- ing and we need an outside point of view. Please help. George won a sales contest and the prize is a five day trip to Bermuda. Neither of us has ever been there and we nre Awfully excited about it. Our daughters 15 and 12, are mature and responsible. We've never had any trouble with them. When we hear about the problems our friends arc having with their teen-agers con- sider ourselves lucky. The girls insist it would be perfectly O.K. to leave them alone in the house. I'm uneasy about doing It even though I'm sure they can be trusted. We live on a safe street in a good neighborhood. Tlie older girl has been a sitter for two years and she says It would make no sense for us to hire someone to sit with her. My husband's answer: "NO DICE." What do you say? The Middle DEAR IN: I say NO DICE, also. This in no way suggests the girls can't be trusted, but there are darned few places without crime Lady. Hire an older woman to come in and stay with your daughters. Or perhaps a relative can help out. P.S. When you're in Bermuda, look for me in the Mid- Ocean News in Hamilton. It's a nifty paper. Are you, or someone you care about messing around tvilh drugs-or considering it? Arc nil drugs bad? What about moderation? Ann Landers' new booklet, "Straight Dope on Drugs" separates the fact from the fiction.
