I'age 14 —NAVGATUCK NEWS (Conn,) Thursday, June 10,191' Redeye Dear Ann Landers: 1 have read many letters in your column about men who enjoy wca r ing worn en's clolhi ng. You seem to ha vc the idea they are "peculiar" or sick. Why? Everywhere you look you see women wearing men's clothes — trousers, vests, shirls, tics, coals, shoes, even hats. No one suggests tal Uiese women are strange. In farl, Ihey arc considered fashionable. When did it become acceptable for women lo dress like men, and why Ihc discrimination against men who dress like women? We hear a lot ahoul male chauvinism. What about the crass discrimination against men by members ol the opposite sex? How about bringing THIS oul o[ the closet? - The Time Is Now. Bear No*: Women started to dress like men during World War II wlwn Ihey were doing men's work on the assembly lines. Rosie the Iliveter couldn't very well climb on beams and girders wearing a skirt and high lieels. Panlsand boots made a lot moresense. Kosic grew to like panls because Ihey were practical, cornier table, and different. She never gave them up. Mm who enjoy dressing like women do so not for any practical reason, bul because Ihey like lo pretend they ARE women. Invariably, they slarl by wearing women's underwear in secret. This is sick. If a female gol her jollies wearing jockey shorts, men's sox and Barlcrs. I'd say SHE was sick, loo. Dear Am Landers: I found the letter by "Blemished" interesting. Why dirln'l you Icll her the problem isn't on her face but in her head? I iiave three birthmarks on my right cheek. All my life people have been asking, "What are those?" Some have said, "When are you $>infi lo have those things removed?" My answer is, "Whal is it to YOU? It's MY lace." That stops them cold. For anyone who has kinky hair, crooked teeth, or an oversized rose, I have a message. It's what's inside that counts. My mother laughl me this when I was a young child. One of her favorite sayings was. "You can't judge a book by its cover," — I'm O.K. Dear O.K.: It's good to Ihink well of one'sself bull don'l agree with your philosophy. One who judges a book by ils cover may be misled — but it's dumb to settle for an unattractive cover on a good book. These days no one ttas lo go through life with kinky hair, crooked leeth or an oversized nose — unless they want to. Your answer to people who mention your birthmarks smacks of Mligcrcncc, almosl as if you arc-keeping them to show people you (kin'i r.ircwhat they think.

As a student of Oriental history and Far Eastern culture 1 can (ell you thai tickling was a form of lorlure several centuries back. Any pediatrician will verify the fact that prolonged tickling of children can cause hysterics and even convulsions. The expression "tickled to death' 1 is more than just a phrase. 1 hope your advice lo "cul il out" does some good. — Vallejo, Cal.
