So I'm a straight female but I enjoy wearing men's clothing. Not like a boyfriend's clothing either. Like I literally go out to the store, shop in the men's section and it drives my mom insane.
She says the way I dress makes her uncomfortable and that I need to leave the men's clothing for men. Because I may see a guy wearing the same shirt as me one day and that would be 'embaressing' for 'me'.
I like button ups, suit jackets, ties, shirts, jeans, even shoes, but she gets so mad whenever I even look at it. She sent me a pair of shoes I was looking at once to my dad and said something like, "Look at the shoes your daughter is trying to buy!!!"
she said I'm a pretty young lady but everytime she looks at me, she sees a guy and she doesn't like it or want to be around me. She doesn't get what I'm apperently going for as she said, but I just like men's clothes better than women's.
Is it bad to wear men's clothing? And what should I do?

Nah, your mother is just exaggerating it because she's trying to put you into the confines of your social gender.
She probably does that because she fears that guys won't find you attractive if you don't align with the traditional notions of femininity.
By the way, many of them will.0

LOL! This is ME COMPLETELY!
I literally shop in the men's sections. I like their styles more. The colors are what I typically wear, dark and neutral. Black, grey, navy, etc. I am not a fan of women's clothing as most of it screams "look at me! Look at this pink! This neon! This bright yellow!"
I am also straight, mostly. And people assume I'm a butch lesbian lol
But I will say it's a bit harder to attract men this way. I like a challenge though, and you'd be surprised how many guys still ask me out even though I look like a "diesel dyke". I still get some weirdos catcall me too, and I find it hilarious and strange (Only when dressed like a dude).
I've always been this way tbh. Even when I was younger. And I went to prom in a suit lol
I like androgynous clothing.0
