Transcript 1 YOU CAN HELP STOP POLICE HARASSMENT! Gay men and women have long been victims of abuses by some homophobic members of our law enforcement agencies. Most have not reported such abuses for (1) fear that they would not be believed, and (2) fear that they would then be the target of additional harassment for vengeance. Today, fortunately, many law enforcement officials would like to work with us to end such abuses of authority . . . hut they can't do it without our help. In order to achieve changes in police practices and activities that are damaging to gays, we must first be able to show that such incidents do, in fact, occur with regularity.

Box 7318, Fort Worth. Texas 76111 BOOK REVIEW BY KEN CYR the LIBRARY "THINGS WHICH GO TOGETHER \ ITURALLY, DON'T NEED TO BE TIED." I Have More Fun With You Than Anybody by Lige Clark and Jack Nichols "We examined jealousy and concluded it as a neurotic disease. Sensible people don't go around asking. 'Has anybody besides me shown an interest in you?' We saw that only misery lay ahead if we concerned ourselves with no-noes. We knew we were best fulfilled when pleasures of any sort were offered us, whether we were alone or together. '' When real sexual freedom exists, we found it's seldom used to excess. The ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu had written: 'Things which go together naturally, don't need to be tied.' We believed him. " This is the philosophy of the love affair extraordinaire of Elijah Clark and John Nichols, more commonly known as Lige and Jack. Their book, I Have More Fun With You Than Anybody, is the story of their meeting, their separating, their reuniting, their philosophies and their advice. The book is full of humor, even in the chapter titles, such as "Bugger Thy Congressman," "Why Isn't Uncle Sam Married?," and "Jesus Wants Us for a Sunbeam." Lige and Jack never miss an opportunity to explain their personal philosophy. The book could have had several titles. "How to Have a Loving Relationship" could have been one of the few along with "Hypocrisy of the Current Moralities" and "Personal Liberation as Opposed to Gay Liberation." Before reading their book, I had always pictured Lige and Jack as leaders of the Gay Movement. That was a misconception. They are leaders of Human Liberation. They express that Human Liberation can be achieved through homosexuality. In their chapter attacking masculinity, they state: "77ie intuitive homosexuality in each man can be used, if he wishes, as a device to meet the opposite sex more fully by identifying himself with her feelings. Without such a device, his empathy is limited and his contact, less fulfilling. Her joy in his body remains a vague mystery to him, and her unrestrained passion is confusing. Bisexuality can be seen, from one perspective, as a walkway between oppo- sites; nature's way of giving us the physical equivalent of the old maxim: 'To love another, you must first love yourself.' Very simple, really. " Not only do they attack rigid masculinity in non-gays, but also in gays. They attack both gays and non-gays who have set up rigid beliefs, especially sexual ones. They urge people to free themselves and enjoy all things in life. This is a beautiful book which might just cause you to reevaluate your own philosophy. Some readers will become indignant, some will never finish the book, some will vehemently denounce it, but a few will be enriched by the love which Lige and Jack have for each other and their friends. These are the people this book was written for.
