But now, I get it a LOT more often since the dreads. So far 5 times. Today, I went to a puppy socialization class with my best friend and her dog. I had not one, but 2 of the other 6 people there ask me if we were partners.
Now, I know I look butch, but wow. Maybe I'm just seeing a coincidence, but there is definetly some sort of stigma in peoples heads that reads dreads=dyke or something.
Although being accused of being a lesbian is not an insult :)
