DEAR ABBY: I need some advice fast. I have a 13-year-old daughter who is crazy in love with a 19-year-old neighbor boy. Today, you hear about 12- and 13-year-old girls getting pregnant, and I am out of my mind with worry. So how do I keep my precious daughter from making this mistake? I keep close tabs on her. She isn’t allowed to date this boy, but she may talk to him in front of the house.
Abby, I pray every night, and I know God hears me, but I need to know how to handle this in a calm manner. Every time I think of it, I cry. I hear her talking to her friends on the phone, and I know she is in terrible danger. She “loves” this boy so much, she would do anything he asked her to do. (I pray to God she hasn't already done it.)
I can't lock her up. I have talked to her about love, making love, and how important it is to save herself for marriage, but I’m not sure I got through her. Please help me. I am desperate.
DEAR GOING: First, have a calm, dod-judgmental, heart-to-heart talk with your daughter and find out what the relationship is between her and the 19-year-old neighbor man — not boy. Does be have a serious interest in your daughter? Or is she
(like many 13-year-old girls) living hi a dreamworld?
ll you daughter is sexually involved Witt this young man, have a talk with him. Does be know that sexual intercourse with a minor is statutory rape? And does your daughter know everything she needs to know about how to prevent an unwanted pregnancy? (Don’t make the mistake some mothers make la thinking that if they discuss this with their daughters it’s the same as giving them permission. It’s not. |
II your daughter has a latter, Include him in this discussion. She's his daughter too. (P.S. Prayer is wonderful. But it’s a very unreliable contraceptive.)
DEAR ABBY: After a homosexual male has had a sex-change operation and becomes a female, is he then a heterosexual, bisexual or is he still a homosexual?
This is not a joke. Abby, it s a question that has been puzzling me for a long time.
DEAR CURIOUS: II the sex-changed female chooses for ber sexual partner another female, she Is a lesbian. II she prefers males exclusively, she is heterosexual, and if she enjoys sex equally Witt bott males and females, she is bisexual.

BY STELLA WILDER FRIDAY. OCTOBER 28
Bom today, you are quite the opposite of the majority of Scorpios who are highly controlled, seemingly calculating people. You are emotional and make no bones about it. You cry at the drop of a hat and laugh at the hint of anything amusing. You never try to hide feelings of love, anger, joy. sadness, fear or whatever. As a result, you have very few “hangups” emotionally. You must at times suffer feelings of rejection — when, for instance you express affection openly to one who either will not or cannot return it.
A lover of home and family, you will be happy if you wed relatively early in life. Men bom on this date make as fine husbands and fathers as women do wives and mothers. You are successful in your career, but it is not the most important thing in your life.
Also born on this date arr: Elsa Lanchester, Joan Plowright, Jane Alexander, actresses.
