So I've always been more into guy things. Video games, sports, guy clothes, and I am even somewhat attracted to girls (a couple girl crushes) and a huge tomboy but I do have long hair, the only thing about me making me look "girly". And I do want to be androgynous. Everyday when I get home from school I style my hair to flow in front of my face and put it in a ponytail until my parents get home. Today I asked my mom "what if I got an androgynous hairstyle" and she just got mad. She said how I was a girl and girls have long hair and how I'll grow up to be beautiful. She said I'm not a rebel but she doesn't know that. Anyway I can get a guy haircut?

I don't agree with the automatic conclusion that you're gay (made below). That's for you to figure out. I'm not really sure how to help your mother come around, but it might be worth pointing out that a lot of girls have androgynous haircuts these days and it's not a big deal. Even female celebrities like Natalie Portman have had short hair.
Aside from the hair, I end up wondering if you're questioning your gender identity at all. Have you read anything about transgender or gender-nonconforming people?0
