As other halves or ex-wives, the concept of our husbands being with younger males whom we see as young children is a repulsive proposal. we might believe an analogous feel of repulsion if our husbands have been immediately and pursing 17 yr previous ladies, so it’s not only a homosexual factor. even if, we're so devastated by means of the imagery of our husbands with different males, that the concept of them being with more youthful males nonetheless of their youngsters is way extra discomforting to us. This further to the truth that this isn't simply appropriate but in addition universal habit in the homosexual group is what's so provoking to us. the reason that those teenage boys are looking for older males since it represents a feeling of safeguard, event, and balance doesn’t convenience us in any respect. we're nonetheless sickened on the visualization. we're additionally frightened approximately our personal sons.

Is it a rational worry? I don’t recognize, however it doesn’t cease me from feeling that manner. Q. Now that i do know that my husband is homosexual, do i must be apprehensive that i've got AIDS? A. i believe this can be the very first thing that involves the minds of girls as soon as the phrases of “gay” are spoken. they're petrified that they could be contaminated with AIDS. evidently, there are nonetheless loads of misconceptions approximately AIDS otherwise they wouldn’t be so nervous. satirically, lots of the ladies who write to me approximately this worry haven’t had sexual family with their husbands for years. they've got not anything to fret approximately.
