Had she obtained the text of my lecture, she would have seen that I was protesting against the grossly disrespectful manner in which some disturbed people refer to the fact that their bereaved or divorced mother had formed a new love relationship in later life. I made it perfectly clear that as far as I am concerned, anyone single in later life who forms a new love relationship of any kind has my approval and best wishes.
Her remarks about lesbianism are completely inappropriate when applied to my lecture, and she is wildly inaccurate in implying that I am disapproving of modern developments in the sexual mores of older people of which I wholeheartedly approve. That was what my lecture was about!
