I got the lesbian thing in middle school too. IDK. I think it was because I was into skateboarding/somewhat gothic at the time, but that's just stupid. Everyone wears jeans and black.
I moved around a lot as a child so I never had rumors that stayed or something. I don't even notice when there are rumors about me TBH. I am SO SLOW when it comes to "gossip". I probably wouldn't know until a decade later. I think it's because I zone out 99% of the time and I only know if someone is talking **** if I hear them talk **** infront of me. Otherwise, I don't hear it.
And honestly, I don't care either, haha. I was bullied so much in grade school, after a while you learn not to care anymore.
