Why is my mom asking me to lie about my age?

Anonymous
I’m 19 but since I was 15 my mom would always say that I’m 2 years younger when we meet new people, and she tells me to never tell my real age, cause most women dont do it, so people will just assume that I’m older, which is weird for me, cause I don’t care about it, but she think that I must always say that I’m 2 years younger than I am. It’s not even ONLY because I’m a woman, cause she ask my brother to do the same thing, by saying that he’s 15 instead of 17.
I personally find that to be stupid and I tell her that it’s ridiculous, cause now with social medias and the internet you can easily find out about someone’s birth year, but she still prefer me to lie about it. Why?
