55. No, I said they have to have husbands and kids to be normal.
Considering the people who are defining "normal", I do not want to be in that list. In fact, I don't think I've ever considered myself normal. But that's another story. Not gay either. Just a radical hippy who is not happy that the world has gone downhill since the 60's.
