OF LOVING AND LIVING *********** The following is an article reprinted from Jfce News Citizen concerning the text of the address delivered by a Houston male feminist, who was ajuest speaker at the last N.O.W. meeting. Wells mentioned the possibility of the 3ay Area chapter forming a task force to organize speakers and a speakers forum for this area and to make additions to speeches current- ly being reworked by the Houston chapter into a handbook. CLEAR LAKE CITY - Darrell Welts, a Houston man fighting for Somen's rights said Thursday in a speech to NOW members the feminist movement benefits men as well as women and may ultimately serve to humanize the American society. "I am convinced that what most Americans want more than anything else is love," Wells said. He added that material success and prestige were probably a substitute for failure to find love. According to Weiis, the American society -tends to "crush our ability to love" by establishing the folklore thaP'growing up is giving up your dreams." "The feminist movement increases the self-esteem of women and releases men from the limitations of a stereotype male role," Wells said. "This allows men to cultivate their ability to love and give." Wells claimed equality cannot exist without self- esteem and concurred with Germaine Greer's statement that love can exist only between equals. Women are prepared from an early age that compromise and sacrifice are two ingredients of love," he said. "Men are not." He added that love cannot be created by one person. "The hardest step for any male is admitting that he is, in fact, a male chauvinist," Wells said. "The next inevitable step is' deciding "What .am I going to do about it?" No man likes to think if himself as an oppressor, he said. Wells emphasized that feminism actually strengthens relationships by encouraging all people to be whole and free. He envisioned nonparasitic relationships where people are together because they want to be and not because they need to be, producing a climate for the cultivation of love, which he called "the elusive *********** American dream." "When men begin to imagine themselves as loving persons, hopefully they attempt to become loving people, and by there He added that love is not something you have, but something you do. "Learning to love does not mean the feminism of men, but the humanization of people," he said. For those people who claim they are satisfied with the present state of love and relationship, Wells nted new census bureau figures that show one of every 2.8 marriages' now end in divorce (1971). As a concluding note, Weils said he found It <ji- terestmg that mwi .-^ve me longest life expectancy in Sweden, the country which also carries tilv highest "feminist rating.
