A sexuality questionnaire for the Feminist Sexuality Project. From the National Organization for Women, N.Y.C. Chapter, 28 East 56 St NYC 10022.  (212) 832-2955. <br />
<br />
There is a feminine symbol with the equal sign inside it then text:<br />
"Sexuality Questionnaire<br />
The purpose of this questionnaire is to try to understand ourselves better, both collectively and individually. On the one hand, asking your-self-these questions is a good way to get further acquainted with your sexual feelings, and on the other hand, it is wonderful to hear what other women are thinking and feeling about the same things -- especially since we never talk about them. The results will be published as a general discussion of what was said, with a few statistics, and a lot of quotes, like a giant 'rap session' on paper.<br />
The questionnaire is anonymous, so don't sign it. If any questions do not apply to you, just write 'non-applicable'. Please use a separate sheet of paper and number your answers accordingly. Don't feel that you have to answer every single question (although we would really like it if you did it). You can skip around and answer the ones that interest you -- just let us hear from you!<br />
Please return questionnaires to Shere Hite, Feminist Sexuality Project, National Organization for Women, 28 East 56 St., New York, New York 10022."<br />

Text reads "I hide in the kitchen under the table watching everybody from a fetal position with the cookie crumbs and the old mad ghosts with jagged edges which haven't been dusted off, put aside in glass cases for everyone to look at. People go by and don't notice. I pinch their toes when they stick their feet under the table. The ghosts and I laugh and scream to ourselves. After everyone has passed to the gallery we dance on top of the kitchen table and bang frying pans on our heads."

Page 1 of typed poem titled claudia<br />
<br />
claudia didn't get fired for being a lesbian though the idea certainly disgusted george her immediate "superior" harold the personnel director and christina her old college chum whose belief that such proclivities were unhealthy was shared by her colleagues.<br />
<br />
claudia did not get fired for being too fat overweight to the point of massive<br />
<br />
though the chairman knew something was wrong with the new girl being assigned to the front office right outside his door (with senior staff men grimacing in joking astonishment at her size).<br />
<br />
and claudia didn't get fired for being a psychic hearing other voices seeing auras <br />

<br />
but it was only with believers and not the reason claudia was fired.
