Help with my 12 year old son

Help, am I crazy? I am concerned over my 12 year old son. He has always been a sensitive kid, has a lot of stuffed animals in his room and cries easily, but lately he has started to become very effeminate in his mannerisms. He does play a lot of sports, but he is the least aggressive kid on the team and always afraid he is going to get hurt.

He doesn't show ANY interest in girls. He actually has started having a limp wrist and holding his pinky out when he drinks. Now before you think I want to change him, I don't. I'm just curious if all this means he is gay, and how do I be the supportive mom if he is? I love him dearly, but know it will be a very difficult time for all if it is true. Do some boys act like that growing up and ended up straight? Am I looking to deep into things? I see lots of boys his age he hangs out with and none of them act like this. I don't want to overreact either, but it has been on my mind lately. Any help/advice you can give will be appreciated.....
