If you don’t like it when people say “no problem,” then you’re the one with the problem, Prudie says. Then onto your questions, with help from friend and biochemist Brandon Taylor:
- How do I talk to my adopted black daughter about race?
- My husband won’t keep his hands off me in public!
- I’m gay—what next?
- Why does my friend call inanimate objects “gay”?
- I can’t talk about my kids from a previous marriage without my husband getting jealous.
