Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers ANN LANDERS: I refuse to call you "dear" because you are an empty-headed, ig- norant, meddling fool. years I have read your col- umn and believed you were a friend ot homosexuals. A few days ago you turned on us like a jungle animal and exposed your hypocrisy and ignorance. I am shocked and outraged that you would call us "sick" and describe homosexual ac- tivity as "unnatural." How dare you? We already have many psychiatrists on our side. Some excellent papers have been written on the sub- ject. They have given us a bill of health. They say we are NOT sick. We are only different. Why is it that you haven't read those pap- ers? I think you should be fired for incompetence. Former Reader DEAR FORMER: I have read them, but I don't hap- pen lo agree with the auth- ors. I am with the psychia- trists who believe homosexu- als are sick and that sex be- tween two men or two wom- en is unnatural, f can listen to and respect opinions dif- ferent from my own, how- e v e r, without becoming Seminar on sexuality Alternatives to an unwantec pregnancy will be examined p.m. Wednesday at a semi nar on sexuality.

Some highly reputable phy- sicians are on the oilier side Kor I of this argument. Here are some samples of my mail: From the British West In- dies: Dear Ann Landers: May 1 congratulate you on your concise and perspicacious an- swer lo a homosexual who signed himself, "One." Twen- ty-five years ago I was also. After six years of analysis, my life was changed completely. You are right when you say homo- sexuals are sick and their sex activity is unnatural. It is dif- ficult lo explain lo a homo- sexual just how sick and un- natural it is. They refuse to believe it. Gut I kno'.v, be- cause I've bcci> there and back. Forever Straight From Topeka. Kansas: Thank you for stating thai homosexuality is an illness. I made the same statement not ong ago and have had a great deal of angry mail because it. You do a good job, Ann. 'bank you. Harold M. Voth, M.D., Wenninger Foun- dation Chicago, Illinois: I have worked with many homosex- uals and, in my opinion, they are individuals whose emo- tional development was ar- rested at a prea doles cent lev- When a massive lack of development in the matura- tion process occurs in any area, it can be referred to as illness in psychiatric terms. Dr. Sara Charles, Assistant Professor of Psychi- alry. University of Illinois From Houston, Texas: Homosexuality, in my opin- ion, is not normal or natural behavior. The original pur- pose of sexual activity was lo perpetuate the species. Any deviation from the norm that threatens "the herd" cannot bo considered normal or nat- ural. Please do not use my name since I am not a spec- ialist in this field. Heart Surgeon, Baylor University From New York: I would not call homosexuality a "dysfunction" as you did in your column recently, be- cause this means the inability to use sex organs adequately, which many homosexuals are able to do. Homosexuality, however, is a distortion of the choice of sex partner from the natural to the un- natural. This distortion conies from severe and early developmental problems caused by an inability to re- late to significant adults. Natalie Sbainess, M.D. So there you have a small sampling, dear readers. And my thanks to all who wrote even tlie angry and hos- tile readers. I appreciate all points of view, whether I agree with them or not. r, Mtmh 57, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Student delegates ask parent support By JUDE TURiC bussing of students at noon Herald Slalf Writer j hours.

To many of this avant- garde group, the word itself is an anachronism. "It's a funny said Susan Evans, a 21-year-old mu- sician. "Relationships should be open." "I don't think its said Christopher Chan, a 20- year-old sophomore at Sarah Lawrence College. "People have a' natural in- clination to see and be involved with as many people as pos sible." To many nf these young men and women, a closed one-to-one relationship is almost automat ically equated with jealousy and possessiveness, emotions they both reject and (ear.

"They are committed to not considering other people as property." Despite the emergence of new social patterns, he said, the majority of young people today "are in no way differ- ent from young people 10, 20 and 30 years ago." "There's a wide variation still as lo what they think about ous relationship riage but would ess one_to-one relationship. A omewhat can visualize an open bul still ser- before mar- accept, and indeed expect, traditional mores once they were married. The attitude lo marriage, too, is ambivalent. Even among the 'ree-thinkers, marriage is, tor many, the ultimate plan, if not .deal. Others would marry only if a child were involved, and a small group considered marri- age unnecessary under any cir- cumstances. don't think physical infi Marie Gewirtz, a 21-year- old junior at Lone Mountain College in San Francisco. "The thing I would object most would be dishonesty. In- :elleclually, 1 would appreciale :he fact if a man were honest with me about another rela- tionship. It would probably hurt me if I were very attached to him but I would try to under- stand." Jennifer Prill, a 21-year-old senior at Hollins College, in Roanoke, Va., thought that fi- delity was "not necessarily im- portant as long as there is some kind of agreement beforehand and it is mutual." "If T were married, I wouldn't mind mv husband hav- as it didn't jeopardize ours. In- tellectually, I think I could han- formed Birth Control Centre. Student delegates asked only to be allowed to "advertise in the high schools, to let the stu- dents know the informational service is available to them." Al the present time posters pamphlets 01 petitions are noi allowed to be circulated in the j schools, according lo the stu- dents. A representative said the necessity of making informa- tion available to the enlire stu- dent body was "a pretty impor- tant matter to us, and we ask the help of the parent associa- tion, to back us up It was decided that the ques- tion would be directed to mem- bers of individual home and school associations and would be considered and acted upon (ure concerning this matter, and expressed Ihe opinion that parents should "support need for establishing better fa- cilities for children who are bussed in."

Miss Cronin, 25, an admini- strative assistant to a v i c a president at Germaine Mon- teil Cosmetiques Inc., in New York, did consider that a relationship entailed the same kind of commitment. "There is no technical nom- litment to one person until an ngagemcnt or a ic said. A more conservative view- oint was expressed by Steven hak, a 22-year-old senior at mherst.
