Dear Bubby,

I am 30 years old. I am Muslim and live in an Arabian country. I suffer a lot because I'm homosexual. I hate that but I do not know how to change and be normal. I want to marry and get children. Is there hope? Is there methods or cure for my case?

Please help, sorry for my bad English.

With a lot of love,
Trapped In Here

Dear Trapped In Here,

I suggest you move to a country that is more tolerant so that you can have a life. A happy life. Homosexuality is not a disease, you are just born that way. It doesn't mean that something is wrong with you.

People who are not educated well enough don't know how to be more accepting. Start accepting yourself first. You can still have a family and children, just maybe not where you are living now.

Don't lose hope.

Be yourself, accept yourself and don't listen to the hateful comments of other people. You are a beautiful person, and people will have to accept you for who you are. I also agree with Bubby, homosexuality is something people are born with, if you disagree take a psychology course. Have the courage to be yourself, best of luck!

with secular humanist love!

Bubby's comment is insightful and it just cuts to the chase. Your agony with homosexuality will continue to plague you for the rest of your life unless you do something about it. Meanwhile, try to make yourself a better person in every way everyday. So when you meet the right guy, he will be there to stay.

Dear Trapped in Here,
I agree, you should move, if you can, but you don't have to be homosexual, if that is truly what you want. There is a book by that title, based on the letters of a man like you.

Bubby is our 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93 94 year old grandmother.
A few years ago we introduced her to the internet and we've been getting daily e-mails from her ever since. When she was 87, we began this website. We now believe she is the oldest blogger on the Internet.

Whether Bubby is reminding us that boyfriends do not substitute for warm jackets in the winter, or that it's better to receive a compliment than a brick, she always has something to say to her granddaughters.

Now with this new website, Bubby can finally share her wisdom with the rest of the world. And she's excited about it! (Which confuses us, because she used to say we were all she needed.)

Hopefully this will be as much fun for new readers as it will surely be for her. And if not, well, as Bubby says, it will all come out in the wash.

So, are you looking for advice on food, work, a broken heart, or the perfect bat mitzvah present?

But no dirty words allowed or you'll only get one matzah ball.
