Shere Hite had a headache. The release earlier this week of a Washington Post-ABC News Poll disputing her conclusions in a seven-year study on women and love was fueling another flap over her methodology. It is a debate that Hite calls a "smoke screen" for what she sees as the real issue of how women feel about men and love. "The whole thing is missing the point," she said. "They want to have a war over numbers." Numbers Are the Issue To Hite's dismay, numbers were exactly what was at issue.

Nice going, Calendar. We just got through a war, brought the troops home to victory parades and flags flying high, and then you people feature a sweaty, longhaired bozo on your cover wearing the American flag as a shirt. NEAL EASTENSON Arcadia

Regarding "Women Who Love Being Single," by Shere Hite (Oct. 18): It is possible to have the independence and the freedom a single woman enjoys plus the security and the companionship a married woman possesses. I'm married to a man who accepts and encourages all of this. I tend to believe there are many others like him. Paula Garcia Camarillo

He walked out on her birthday, a few months shy of their 34th wedding anniversary. She was devastated. For two weeks, she stayed in bed under heavy sedation. Weeks later, she was still so depressed she could not lift her arms and was barely able to walk. Somehow, she managed to get to a therapist, who is now helping her put together a life that focuses on her, not her husband. She is Sandi Nimoy, former wife of actor/director Leonard Nimoy, better known as Mr. Spock of "Star Trek" fame.

It is unfortunate that Brown would choose to make gross, sexist generalizations in her commentary. The fact that Brown is an instructor at a major university is doubly unfortunate; she is merely engaging in the ever-so-trendy "male bashing" popularized by authors such as Shere Hite. The real issue here should be one of recognizing, treating and preventing neurotic, anti-social behavior irrespective of sex. Sexist generalizations, like racist drivel, serve no useful purpose and obfuscate the real issues involved.

I have just finished reading Shere Hite's article "Women Who Love Being Single" (Oct. 18), and if you've been out there you know why they love it. Divorced women color their hair, lose weight, dress up and get on with their lives. Divorced men, even after 10 years, are still bitter, very angry and still wearing polyester. After eight years of being single, I'd just as soon spend all my time with my grandchildren, who give me unconditional love, really need me and don't play mind games.

Thanks for finally getting around to "A Current Affair." I was beginning to think I was the only one who sat there open-mouthed and disbelieving at this nightly assault on the truth--a sleazy tabloid masquerading as a "news show," and the ever-boyish Maury Povich, his pseudo-seriousness tinted just this side of shady. I thought it was pretty bad when they interviewed the two pathetic little publicity seekers from the Bronx with their brave claims of sexual encounters with Jessica Hahn.

OPINION

Bravo to Carol Tavris for her column ("Method Is All but Lost in the Imagery of Social-Science Fiction," Op-Ed Page, Nov. 1) on self-proclaimed "scientific" sexologist Shere Hite. I was incredibly put off by the Hite quote that was smeared across the View (Oct. 29) front page: "We (women) can still truly love a man, but we see him as from another planet." If a male author had made that statement about women, he would probably now be wearing an ill-fitting suit of tar and feathers. I'm not the most enlightened man on this planet, but I'm pretty tired of hearing what a disgusting gender I belong to. Why is that all the women can turn their lives into little "Mary Tyler Moore Shows" by complaining how men have done them wrong, while the men who have been hurt by women are expected to conceal their feelings as stoically as Clint Eastwood?
