Transcript LESBIAN RIGHTS...PHYLLIS TUCKER...944-0033 (The following is from a speech deliveife by Wilma Scott Heide at the Sixth National Conference of the National Organization for Women, 1973* during her term of office as president of NOW.) As a further matter of integrity, feminism includes the freedom and power to love ourselves and each other as women, as men and as women and men loving each other as persons and embracing such children as we choose to have or have had in that love. No particular sexuality preference, if any, is either a requirement of or a barrier to feminism in NOW. That orientation, in my view, is the sine qua non for getting on with the business of educating and being educated by our children vis-a-vis the full potential of human sexuality. We do not equate normal with natural and in neither do we see bases for praise or sensure. Our sexuality is; that is its own validity, and though often vital is not the totality of our identity. I would propose the^ philosophy as a societal imperative to help hang up our sex hang-ups. Though we've resolved this in NOW, we have yet to exhibit the courage of our convictions. This conference must move beyond resolution to action programs for NOW and society. What we are about is love in its deepest, most abiding sense. If we did not care, we would not be here; indeed, if we did not care, NOW would not be. (and, from Bella Abzug) It is time to recognize that lesbians and homosexuals are individuals like anyone else, who happen to have made certain personal choices about their private lives. These choices are their own business; they have no greater effect on their work than their color, size, shape or ethnicity, and they should not be subjected to discrimination of any kind because of their sexual preferences. They are fully entitled to the same Constitutional protections as all other Americans. ************************************************************************* TUNE IN TO WOMEN ON KPFT - 90.1 FM Radio Women's music, sports, news & information, listener-participation Tuesdays - 8:00pm - A Woman's Place with Clara Kern 4th Tuesday of each Month is NOW night Fridays,8:00ara to 10:30am, BREAKTROUGH with Pokey Anderson & Cherry Wolf
