Transcript MR. SAL E. MARIE Man of a Thousand Disguises - Carol Burnett; Lily Tomlin of Review MAYES "It shall be unlawful for any person to appear on any public street, sidewalk, alley or public throughfare dressed with the design intent to disguise his or her true sex as that of the opposite sex." The law was changed June 2, because of its ambiguity. Hence, four earlier charges (before June 2) against Mayes for dressing as a female were dropped. "Today I feel like I was being harassed," saidTony, "Especially after they dismissed the case and then turned around and arrested me." Earlier, outside the courtroom, Tony said he (she) expected to be arrested when he (she) got outside. When asked if he thought Mayes was being harassed, Mayes' law; Larry Sauer, said, "Now I do ""re, she was also harassed. But u«w, it's obvious." Sauer said his client is considering filing harassment charges against the police. Tony was released after posting $27.50 bond on the original charge and another $27.50 for an outstanding traffic warrant. "I think I have a job starting tomorrow," Tony said after her release. "But after all this publicity they will probably recognize me." She said that she has been unable to hold a job because of her sexual preference. Mayes told reporters she had been living with friends for over a year and that she is short of money. "The biggest problem is trying to educate people about transex- uals." Tony said that he didn't see any movement developing for transex- uals, but she did say "I would appreciate any help, but I would not expect anyone to go through what I am going through." Shrink out'a sight Members of GAYS OF/D'OT- TAWA had the dubious privilege of hearing Dr. Arboleda, a clinical psychologist at the Royal Ottawa Hospital and an admitted male heterosexual, present a talk on "Homosexuality, a psychiatrist's point of view". While addressing a mixed male/female predominatly homosexual audience, he stuck to reciting the various'conservative' views on male homosexuality, hate propaganda we are all too familiar with. Presenting himself as authority and observer, only once did he actually give his own views, admitting that his prime aim in working with male gays would be to change their sexuality and secondly to get them to accept their homosexuality. It was a frustrating evening listening to this man, pompously sitting there telling us how we live, what we do, why we are gay, yet at the same time it was a good learning experience. Never again are we going to invite heterosex- ' uals to come to us as the know ing ones on homosexuality. We gays are the only authorities, we who live it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We who know our gay brothers and sisters as human beings, not as clinical subjects and who also are all too familiar with the discrimination and ignorance in the larger society that create the problems we have to cope with. We would be shocked to hear a white sociologist address a black organization recounting the high crime rate and low business success among blacks without taking into account the all-prevalentpre- judice and discrimination blacks must fight against. I was shocked to hear Dr. Arboleda. Psychiatry for him is a tool to create social conformity. Denying his long-term responsibility to his patients, he attempts to get the gay person to conform to the status quo by either changing their sexuality or maintaining a low profile and not fighting the wrongs of society that keep gays oppressed. Psychiatry has for too long put the onus for change on the dissident individual, the woman who suffers from depression due to the boredom of her housewife role, the gay who is forced to deny his or herself to pass as straight. The problem is not an individual one but a more general oppression of a society demanding social conformity at all costs even when it oppresses and denies the right of self-fulfillment to so many people. It is time for all gay men and gay women to say no to society and ignorant psychiatrists. We wiUW conform to your prejudices. Wt will remain GAY, GAY AND PROUD. Dr. Arboleda, you are an ignorant man.
