Sir: I was pleased to read that Deborah Orr holds views similar to mine on the need to acknowledge the harm done by marital infidelity. Why, then, did she gratuitously and offensively distort the views I express in my book The Sex-Change Society?

I do not argue that family life should be based on bribery, punishment or "power" over men, but rather that both women and men should be encouraged to behave well towards each other and face up to their responsibilities when they do not. Clearly, the prospect of agreeing with me has sadly plunged Orr into the very confusion she laments.
