Was going out with my mom, who loves me unconditionally and I truly love her, she met another auntie whom I never saw before. She immediately asked whether I am her son. I don’t blame her for that as I am a butch.
She immediately apologized when the other auntie said “That is her daughter lah!”
Then she came over, tried to said sorry many times and rubbed my shoulders as if I needed a lot of comfort from that. I was smiling but I really felt like burying my head in somewhere as there were a lot of aunties there.
The other auntie sensed the awkwardness and tried to divert “she is very good in sports!”.
I went home and cried for one hour. It hurts to have to face all this once in while. Do I have to live the rest of my life that way?
