Transcript Exclusive to Pointblank Times, I was much impressed by the article, "Why I Won't Shut Up" by Linda Lovell in the November 1977 PBT issue. How true much of her article rings! And to me, the issue is far deeper than gay versus straight. I have discovered that when we speak too frankly, or too publicly, from our hearts on such issues as androgyny or sexual feelings, we are suddenly invited to become invisible in our churches. I have recently experienced this phenomenon in my own churh. Due to the publication of a novel of mine, YOU'VE GOT TO RIDE THE SUBWAY!, which includes—and somewhat revolves around—a lesbian experience, ITve been directed to discontinue writing religious articles for my church. Of course, the reasons given these days, are seldom that one has dealt with gayness—but rather that one has been "emotional" or "sensuous" or something of that general nature. Perhaps the issue is nevertheless that one who is capable of feeling and talking about gay emotions is not supposed to also be "spiritually-minded." There is much left to discover about womankind and mankind and the identity of all of us...and I hope that those who have been chastised and shamed as Linda Lovell has been, do indeed continue the courage of speaking from their hearts on this most complex issue of human identity. -Madge R. Ritter Dear Madge, Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. We look forward to reading your book. Dear Sisters of Pointblank Times, I received the first issue of your publication today. My friends and I wish to extend our gratitude for such reading material reaching our eyes here in Germany. Some of us are Army; others are Air Force. We continually confront the issues in a manner none of us care for, but which is a necessity for our own (and innocent friends/supporters) protection. However, we deeply appreciate your efforts and are looking forward to the next issue. Continue the good work! In sisterhood, Barb Dear Barb, One of the main objectives of PBT is to close the isolation gap for as many women as possible. We're glad to be able to share our thoughts with you and your friends. -PBT staff January/February 1978
