1975 WomenSpeak series
Panelists discuss lesbianism
The 1975 WomenSpeak series began Tuesday
with a panel discussion on lesbianism.
The five-member panel of feminist lesbians
fielded questions from an audience of 65 women
and 3 men.
Discussion began with questions concerning
lesbianism, laws and politics in Nebraska and
The panelists, who would not reveal their
names, were career women and students from
Omaha and Lincoln. They said they did not
claim to represent all lesbians and that they
disagree on some issues among themselves.
Social pressures to keep the facts of
lesbianism hidden conflict with their personal
desire to share their opinions, panelists said.
Acceptance of homosexulaity in a
heterosexual world is the main problem for
lesbians today, they agreed.
Each said she had to resolve personal identity
problems before deciding to participate in the
panel discussion, because admission of
homosexuality sometimes causes problems in a
career. The "straight" world is prejudiced from
lack of knowledge, they said.
Each discussed some personal experiences.
Acceptance of homosexuality is made easier by
meeting persons with similar feelings, each said.
The panelists agreed that this support is one
of the purposes of gay organizations.
Organizations provide emotional support for the
person dealing with homosexuality, they said as
well as providing a political base. They added
that for lesbians in Lincoln, such support is
The panel also discussed problems a lesbian
has when she wants to adopt children.
Single-parent adoption is becoming more
accepted but there is an additional emotional
factor for the homosexual, they said.
The presentation ended with a discussion of
lesbians in the feminist movement, political
factors in a homosexual relationship, and
The discussion was the first in a series of
public-talk-in presentations sponsored by the
Student Y. Next Tuesday, the topic will be
"Women in Legislation" with Yvonne Leung of
Women's Lobby, Inc. The weekly meetings are
12 p.m. Tuesday in the Nebraska Union.
Lazy lose an exercise excuse
Lazy people now have one less excuse not to
exercise. A new book, The Lazy Man's Guide to
Physical Fitness, written by a UNL faculty
member, tells lazy people how to get into shape
and stay fit.
The book's author, Dr. Kenneth Rose, is the
fitness director at UNL. Rose also is an
emergency physician at Bryan Memorial
Hospital. The book was written in collaboration
with Jack Dies Martin, a Chicago science writer.
Rose said the book's aim is to show people
how to develop an exercise program and stick to
it without much output. Rose didn't say how
many lazy people he thought would follow his
advice, but said everyone should exercise
can be carried to a harmful extreme.
Experiments on varsity athletes show that long
distance runners progressively lose potassium, he
said. Potassium is necessary for muscle tone.
According to Rose, the most important
exercises are those that increase the aerobic
capacity of the body. The aerobic function of
the body is to take in and use oxygen during
exercise. An aerobic exercise is an exercise in
which oxygen is taken in while work is being
done. Aerobic fitness and a healthy heart go
hand in hand, Rose said.
Dr. Rose's paperback book is available in
Lincoln at the Miller and Paine Bookstore. It is
published by Great Lakes Living Press of Chicago
and costs $4.95.
Rose warns that exercise, like anything else,
