DEAR ABBY
Grandma worried relative may be gay

Dear Abby:

I have reason to believe that a young man in my family may be gay (he is 15).

I have been thinking a lot about it lately, and have been wondering if circumcision would cure it. What do you think?

GRANDMOTHER in Missouri

Dear Missouri Grandmother:

Homosexuality is not an illness, and therefore there is no need for a “cure.” I predict that your family will be happier if you accept your relative exactly the way he is, love him, support him, and stop trying to think of ways to cure him.

P.S. Circumcision is a sacred rite of the Jewish religion. If your theory were valid, then there would be no Jewish homosexuals. And yet, among the successful, gay, Jewish men who are “out” are Harvey Fierstein, Michael Feinstein, Barney Frank, Isaac Mizrahi and David Geffen — to name a few.
