So when I was in high school, my friends genuinely thought I was a lesbian (or at least bisexual). I'm not really sure why, of course...it probably was because I'm a bit bigger than everyone, I never dated in high school, and I was a bit of a tomboy/nerd. Funny thing is I'm completely straight, I love the menfolk, and I've no inclination towards bisexuality. These days I'm afraid to show too much affection towards other women because I don't want to give off the appearance of being a lesbian (not that there's anything wrong with being a lesbian, of course). Even my parents sat down with me one day and asked me if I was gay, heh. Anyone else encounter this sort of thing? I tend to laugh about it now but I'm still a little self-conscious. I fear that people will get the wrong idea.
