My mother blames me for my daughter being bisexual

My teenage daughter recently came out as being bisexual. Which I have no problem with, I'm proud of her for doing so and support her. She asked if I would tell my siblings and she would tell her grandmother when she is ready. I did so and recently found out from sibling 2 that sibling 1 told our mother and our mother says it's my fault as I let my daughter be a tom boy and told her she was one. I know sibling 2 would not lie about that and I can imagine our mother saying that. Any advice please??

My turning-12-year old has recently come out too. Our family is a bit of a rainbow anyway so it's not been an issue but there's been a couple of homophobic kids at her secondary who have been rude. I've done my best to make sure that my daughter has the tools to deal with people who aren't supportive. You can't usually change people but being able to handle others is good. Is your mum likely to say anything directly to your daughter?

No I cant imagine she would, she likes to look good in the grandchildrens eyes lol.
