My Mom Asked Me if I Still Liked Girls Today

Can’t people just like people?

“So, do you still think you like girls?”

My mom asked this today when she called to check in on me, as she does a few times a week. The question came out of nowhere. I think she’d wondered if I’d started settling into my new home, and I told her I made friends with the security guard at my apartment complex.
