Ok so i think my mom is a bad offender of calling certain things queer just because they weird her out
She doesnt know my sexuality or at least i dont think so, but she is always calling certain behaviors of mine queer
Yes this thread is kinda supposed to be for laughs and i hope others can share similar things, but here r a few things that my mom calls queer of me that really have nothing to do with me being queer:
Singing a song by a female artist
Singing in the shower
My partless hairdoo (i hate parts and their organizing properties)
My reference to my animals as my babies (i sometimes treat them better than she treats her babies)
My reaction to babies and other cute things (the high pitched "awww so cute" thing)
The various twitches i occasionally get for various reasons
My laughing at otherwise not funny things
My use of the word superlative (which she cant even pronounce right)
My speaking of latin

If i think of any more ill add them [Smile]
I hope ive humored someone out there!!!

--------------------
It is my hope that what i ask here is answered for me and anyone else afraid to ask the same question :)

Can I add liking science fiction and other "guys stuff"? Before I realised I was queer, I was still a massive tomboy, and most people took those nerdy interests of mine as a sign that I'm a lesbian (which I'm not, but close enough). I remember asking my facebook friends why people keep assuming I'm a lesbian, and the ones who DID give an answer cited my interests.

--------------------
Ta-da!

Yes! I think its funny how people attribute certain characteristics to queer people and then if they display that characteristic they think its cause they are queer
A few more to add to my list:
Needing more practice driving
Naming mexican animals after mexican food
Being able to bake excellently
Laughing over things nobody else is laughing at

Art, in general.
Feminism.
Being okay with being fat.

These are actually different facets of my identity, they don't have to do with the fact that I'm sexually and romantically attracted to women.

Apropos of nothing, I hate parts, too. [Smile] But I love the way you put this: I intend to steal it from you for future use. [Razz]
