{QUOTE OUT When my mother left the kitchen (my father wasn’t home), Kelley sat up on the bar stool, separated her legs and you could see all there was to see. She didn’t have on any underpants!}

Britney, is that you?

Q: I’m writing to you because of my sister, who says that she is straight, but I just got to wonder. But not just wonder if she’s straight, but if she’s trying to make me kill her, or she’s just a dirty, little slut – or both. Let me explain:
First, my sister “Kelley” and I have always been in competition with each other as we’ve grown up. I felt like we had gotten better about it in the past several years, but maybe not. Also, it is important for you to know that when I came out to her, she thought that I was disgusting for being gay. I mean she really ripped me out. She was so bad; in fact, I think that she helped the rest of my family in their acceptance of my being gay because they felt bad for me given how Kelley acted towards me.
Well, now Kelley has taken to flirting with my girlfriend, “Leslie.” Actually, it goes way beyond flirting. Kelley will wear sluttish outfits when she’s around Leslie. Believe me, she doesn’t wear this stuff ordinarily. Not only does she wear this crap, she prances in front of Leslie. And brushes up against her, dragging her breasts along Leslie’s back, pretending to just be passing by in a tight area even though there was a passway on the other side of her.
But the thing that made me lose my cool happened last night. Leslie and I were visiting my parents. We were in the kitchen. Kelley, who lives at my parents’ house, came out of her bedroom and came into the kitchen. When my mother left the kitchen (my father wasn’t home), Kelley sat up on the bar stool, separated her legs and you could see all there was to see. She didn’t have on any underpants! When my mother came back in, she slammed her legs back together.
Up until this time, I’ve kept things between Kelley and me when Leslie is around. But this was too much. I told my mother what Kelley had done. Of course, Kelley denied it, said that maybe her legs separated a little but that was unintended and that we should keep our eyes to ourselves. So, I asked, why does she have her skirt on without underpants? She says that she forgot, that she was excited about coming out to see me and Leslie and hadn’t gotten to it. Jody, she’s never had that problem before, forgetting her underpants, and besides, who puts on her underpants after her skirt! My mother said that I should not be so quick to judge Kelley, and that Kelley wouldn’t do such a thing. I came off looking like I was a troublemaker.
I know what Kelley is doing. She may fool my mother, but she’s not fooling me. I don’t want to have to stop visiting my parents, but I’m not sure I want to be around Kelley anymore, so I don’t know what to do about that. Do you have any ideas? Also, do you think that Kelley is gay?

Slut’s Sister

A: Whether or not your sister is gay is really not the issue. She’s out to get you, and apparently doing a good job. You have not told me how Leslie is dealing with Kelley’s behavior. However, if you and Leslie can pull it off, I would suggest that you both just totally don’t react to Kelley. That will take away her fun and she’ll eventually quit it. She’ll stop because she will see that you no longer react to it, which is her motivation for doing it. If not, I would suggest that you try and make your visits when Kelley is not around, but I really believe this will all go away by ignoring her obnoxious behavior. If you can do this, you will have won this round.
