I'm a teenage mom!

I do my work in school... I'm an A student and I have pretty good friends... but my mother still feels the need to micro manage me! I know what you're going to say "she's just looking out for you" or "she just wants you too stay her baby". I don't really care! It's got to be much more than that!
       Today I wore one of my favorite shirts that I got from hot topic... but my mother wouldn't let me out the house because I " look like one of those freaks" She knows I'm gothic and was quite fine with it untill today! I asked her to explain and she said "Just because it looks ugly"
    Don't we all have different style? She says if she thinks it's ugly I can't wear it, even if it's the most beautiful thing in the world to me. She also has to move my stuff around and nags at me when I can't find something I put on my dresser, that she put on the table. When I asked her could we talk about all of this she said no! She said I should be happy that she cares this much and did even want to hear what I had to say!
      Can anybody give me an idea on how to get her to talk this out with me?

I'm not terribly sure, but you could sit down with her at a time when she isn't busy and explain to her you have something very serious to talk about and she absolutely needs to listen. Have it well thought out and tell her exactly how you feel. Give her a chance to respond. Don't get angry.

Getting in a fight with her defiantly will not help the cause, you need to tell straight that this is who you are, that you can't change. Remind her that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
