alicemassie tells us more.
Okay, (it's OP) I need to make a couple of clarifications. I didn't include this part because there wasn't enough room in the FML submit thing, but after I told my mom I was referring to my business partner, she told me that she thinks I'm a lesbian not because of her fantastic maternal intuition, but because she thinks my husband is too much of an "ass bitch" for me to actually love him, and because I'm athletic. I wanted her to meet my business partner because my parents are involved in my business

oh how awkward!! i'm in a similar situation...my mum is waiting for me to come out of the closet and she keeps hinting at it aha
This could be easily corrected if you just explained yourself to her. But your mom thinking you're gay... I don't think this is that uncommon, honestly. As long as you're happy and secure with yourself, what others say or believe about you won't really affect you.
That's why you always say "business partner", never just "partner", because people get confused, even the other way around-- a woman I know introduced her life partner and the people asked what their company was. YDI for not being specific and also for not having common sense. And why the hell would she think you were a lesbian? Maybe you should check that one out, too, and make some changes.
