Dear Carol

I think like a guy!

I have three older brothers who are great but, because of them, I have a dirtier mind than most girls. My guy friends think it’s funny – they can relax and joke around me – but my girl friends get grossed out. One asked if I was a guy in disguise! How can I show that I have a clean mind while keeping a sense of humor?

Dear Gutter Girl,

You’re a girl with a sense of humor who’s comfortable around guys--and that’s a good thing. It’s a co-ed world, so seeing things from both perspectives is a strength, not a weakness. However, it’s smart to be aware of whom you’re talking with. You might talk one way with certain guys, another with certain girls or teacher or friends’ moms. Don’t turn everything into a joke, but don’t censor your thoughts.
