Well, at least I know what she thinks now.

For the last few months I've been teetering back-and-forth between thinking my mother thinks I'm straight and thinking she's known about me for years. Well, today I heard her talking on the phone to a friend. I don't make a habit of eveasdropping on other people's conversations, but I overheard a bit of it and it sounded like she was talking about me, so I listened. She said that she used to wonder about my sexuality, but now was convinced that I liked guys. Um, NOT! One of her reasons was a reason I always thought of as proving my gay-ness – whenever we're watching television and there's a barechested man (or something along those lines) I get embarrassed and turn away. I don't wanna see guys in the nude! I'm sorry, but it's true. However, SHE thinks that I'm turning away because I'm trying to hide that I like 'em. Not the case.

While the logic is slightly mindboggling, at least I know what she thinks. Now I'm gonna have to find some polite way of setting her right.

Well, so-so. It's not exactly bad, but then, since I'm most definitely not straight it's not exactly good either. It mostly means that I have to find a polite way to tell her that she's wrong.

Oh dear. Act as gay as possible, she will get the hint. I took my mother two years, but it happened eventually

Haha, yes, gayness. Though I'm not sure how that'd manifest itself in my case, since I'm pretty femmy. Girlpics on the walls, mayhaps?

heh heh..

Dropping hints, eh? If you wanted.. i'd opt for getting something rainbow,[like, a bracelet, or a wristband, or a ring, or a belt, or a bandana or shoelaces or something] and then just.. wear it all the time, whenever possible. she might wonder, and maybe even ask why. Then it gives you an in, and you can be like, "well..." ^_^ worked for me, sorta. My mom asked anyway. And i told her. it's the what happens after that's hard. but either way.. good luck with it. ^^
