When my best friend was a kid - some thirty or so years ago - his mom took him to see a movie. While they were there he saw some men behaving strangely. They were a bit loud and...flamboyant. He asked his mother about the 'funny nen' and she said - rather archly -

"Darling, they're men who make hats."

...as if that explained everything.

Ironic that not so many years later my friend would himself become a "man who made hats".

R7, my mother used that phrase in reference to me. I overheard her several times telling her lady friends, "Oh, he doesn't date much, he's artistic." Of course, with her Southern drawl, it sounded more like "autistic."

I grew up in a small town. There was a man that worked all his life at the local men's story and seemed a bit of a dandy. As a kid, I picked up on his being a bit different. I think my mother understood I was curious about the man different than the farmers. He was not like the banker, the doctor or the other men She told me that she did not want me to end up like him, adding, he lives with his mother.
