[Re: "Ken Comes Out," July 23]

Ken is "partner" of the most famous doll: Is that basis for "outing" him? Hmmm?

Until bigoted people accept us queers (ie: you and me), outing may only portray us as lifeless dolls. We are more than haircuts and accessories--we have feelings dammit. . . . Just how is Ken supposed to share his feelings? Hmmm?

You know, outing can be taken the wrong way. Perhaps Ken needs that cock ring--you are so insensitive--damn you! Just spare me a column about Bert and Ernie. How sad that would be.
