HERMIA
Why are you grown so rude? What change is this,
Sweet love?
LYSANDER
Thy love! Out, tawny Tartar, out!
Out, loathed med'cine! O hated potion, hence! (3.2.12)

In this play, female characters have a harder time accepting the transformation of their loved ones.  Here Hermia refuses to believe Lysander does not lover her, and earlier Helena had difficulty comprehending Demetrius's change of affections.
