That teacher has had to find another job; "the word" got out very - and very completely. So much for any future in teaching. One less teacher. One wasted teaching cer- 'icate. One frantic search for another job - any job. Teachers have one hell of a time finding other employment without a Masters of PhD. Some kind of practical training.or experience, like secretarial work, or sales, is needed to get a job. I know. After I quit teaching (I wasn't thrown out) it took me seven months to find a job I wasn't "over-qualified" or "under-experienced" for. It paid half of what I would have made as a teacher. This is only one "horror" story of gay against gay. There have been many murders and physical assaults due to broken relationships, jealousy, anger, or even a lust for thrills. Personal property has been maliciously vandalized or stolen. Pets have been mutilated, killed or stolen. The list goes on and on. Each time I hear of something like this, I gel sick to my stomach. A long time ago, I thoughl living in a "gay community" - a place where we' would all 'look out for each other because we are different, because we have the same goals, because we claim to have a better definition of love than the straight community. Being gay, I always thought "Gay is good." Now, I keep seeing ourselves, not Anita or her rapidly growing following, as our worst enemies. Until we truly begin to care for each other and work together toward self-acceptance, we cannot hope for social acceptance. We are a minority and community that often works very hard to live up {or down) to the charges leveled at us by "straight" society. We must begin to care for each other. We must learn to love. We must all work together, every group, every individual, if we are to survive 1980 or any other year. Love is the key. Let's wipe out our record of horror stories and be truly gay.
