Transcript Ann Lavender* Dear Ann Lavender, My women's group was discussing sexuality recently. We're a pretty mixed group, as I found out. There was quite a bit of argument and laughter on several points. Like, why is a woman gay, bisexual, or heterosexual? Jackie Dear Jackie, I doubt that I can give you much insight, but I'll offer a few out of sight opinions. I don't believe sexuality is so easily defined by a word. I came to my own conclusions, as we all must, and refer to myself as a genetic or natural gay. Here follows opinions, take them and leave them. Start with a sexually free society and 100 baby girls. 48% can simply be compatible with anyone, male or female; so let's say 48% bisexual. 25% are born with a strong homosexual tendency and 25% a strong heterosexual tendency. 2% are just plain strange (undefinable). Take that same 100 babies and rear them in the U.S.A. Then ask them to define themselves after about 25 or 30 years of living. Don't forget that social influence can create a homosexual as well as a heterosexual and vice versa. It can also destroy sexuality altogether. How would these 100 women define themselves? I'd guess, 5% undefinable, 15% bisexual, 20% gay, and 60% heterosexual. If you asked each one why? This column is not long enough to list 100 different dialogues, but I'd like some feedback. So if you're out there and listening, write—I love to get mail. Dear Ann Lavender, Three years ago I fell for a woman, We lived together six months. Then she left me. She'd get involved with other women and when things didn't work out she'd come back for awhile, or write me constantly, or phone me. She shows up like a whipped dog and I take her in and love her. Then she's gone again, and I feel used and mad. Just when I'm ready to give her up for good, she's back somehow. She says she doesn't understand love, that she's not ready for commitments. How long do I have to wait! Torn Up in Lufkin Dear Lufkin, Three years is too long to wait for someone else to decide your life. One of the hardest decisions anyone can make is whether the love she feels is good for her. If you can't accept the situation as is and you can't influence her, then find courage for yourself. Spend a little of that love and energy you've given to her on yourself. Building your ov/n life strengthens your ability to decide your own life.
