Lesbian's biggest problem may be her girlfriend
Dear Ms. Behavior:
My girlfriend and I are, for the most
part, a happy lesbian couple. Recently,
however, she has been very concerned
about my so-called unpleasant odor.
She says I should do something about
it, like buy a feminine deodorant spray
and douche and so on. But I am a clean
person and shower daily and don't feel
i should apologize for the way my body
Lately, she has said she will leave me
if I don't do something about it and
"clean up my act." While we're out at
bars or hanging out with friends she
often makes a joke of it and tells our
friends and others that I smell. It's very
Can you recommend a medication,
spray, or douche that can cure me of
Despite your girlish handwriting,
Ms. Behavior at first suspected that
your letter was written by a group of
bored gay men attempting to amuse
themselves and trick Ms. Behavior.
Somehow you manage to not use the
beautiful word "vagina," even though
you discuss yours extensively. So let
Ms. Behavior help you overcome your
hesitancy: Vagina, vagina, vagina.
Please stand in front of your mirror and
repeat it several times.
Now, there are a few questions that
you might ask yourself that would help
you to figure out what is going on.
Has your girlfriend's reaction to the
scent of your vagina changed over time,
or has she always had a problem with
it? Is she just using this as a way of
expressing hostility toward you? Have
you noticed a change in the way you
It is possible to have a bacterial infec-
tion without any pain or itching. A bad
odor is one possible symptom. Ms.
Behavior would suggest seeing a gyne-
cologist, who could prescribe medica-
tion if you do have an infection. (The
alternative — polling a group of unbi-
ased dykes on the scent of your vagina
— might be time-consuming, if not
Regardless of how you answer the
above questions, Ms. Behavior believes
you will be led to one of two conclu-
sions. 1) Your vagina smells just fine
and your girlfriend is an idiot. 2) Your
vagina smells bad, due to some kind of
infection, and your girlfriend is an
Dear Ms. Behavior:
My boyfriend and I have been
together for 15 years and are private
about our relationship. Our problem is
a new neighbor, Gretchen, who was
recently released from a psychiatric
When she takes her medication,
everything is fine and she greets us cor-
dially. But every few weeks, Gretchen
goes through episodes of not taking her
meds and then she loses control.
During those times, when she sees us
walk down the street, she yells,
We have tried talking to Gretchen
about it when she seems reasonable and
well, and she apologizes for her behav-
ior. But when she is not herself, she
won't listen to us at all.
I don't want to pursue legal action
because I know that Gretchen is not in
her right mind.
I also know that the namecalling is
not particular to us or even to our being
gay; she has aptly named other people
on our block "Fatso," or "Pimpleface,"
or "Big Head" and yells at them, too.
It doesn't particularly hurt my feel-
ings or cause me any major grief; I'm
just a bit concerned about the neighbors
knowing that we're gay. So far, though,
the neighbors just laugh and seem sym-
pathetic when she yells these things at
What do you think we should do?
— Tom and Bob
Dear Tom and Bob:
While being yelled at is disturbing,
you also say that you are not suffering
any major consequences. If this remains
true, ignoring Gretchen when she's act-
ing out is probably the best thing. If she
and / or her family members are recep-
tive to you, continue talking to them
about her medication.
Ultimately, Gretchen's rantings will
probably help you to easily and natu-
rally be out to your seemingly good-
natured neighbors. Although it's unfor-
tunate that it's not your choice, being
out might feel quite freeing.
Ms. Behavior is far more concerned
about people who have not written to
her: the fat pimple-faced bigheads liv-
ing on your block, who suffer a grave
fate compared to the fun that can be
had by queer faggots. ▼
