  • I have never been mistaken for a girl, but I have been mistaken for a foreigner and a homosexual lol
    I was at the mall and I made a joke to my girlfriend (we speak German as our second language) in German and someone asked if we needed help and if we spoke English. She told us, "welcome to America! Where are you from?" Lol
    And once, in France, my friend and I were in a shop and the owner thought we were a couple. I saw sex position dice that I thought were funny, so I showed my friend and the owner came up, pulled us together, and said "Those our for night time, this is lunch time" gave us a smile and walked away saying, "young lovers in Paris, huh?"

  • Yes all the time. I have a very masculine face so I have been called sir many times. I have to wear clothes that show off my body just to prove that I am a woman. I have long hair, but people think I look like a guy with long hair. It happened on Friday. I was wearing baggy clothes, and this guy told his buddy that: "I thought that was a guy, must be a dyke." I was only wearing baggy clothes because my good clothes were in the wash, and I am on my period. I was crampy and I wanted to wear comfortable clothes. Other then that I had my hair styled and I was wearing makeup. Someone once called me a tranny. I hate my face.

  • In my late teens, despite being 6'3, very broad shouldered, sporting a fair amount of facial hair (we're talking full mutton chops here), deeply voiced, and generally wearing a lot of heavy clunky men's clothing.. I still managed to get misaken for a women because I had a poney tail. And apparently that's all the gender signifier elderly people in rural Herefordshire or Camarthen need. lol.

  • Yeah I have, a few times actually.

    But only when I style my hair..

    One time a long time ago when I was
    on a school trip in Amsterdam.

    We were living in a boat house, I was lying on a bed
    and one of my friends said that I looked cute
    like a girl, because I was lying the way I did. ^.^

  • Yes, when i was like 10 or 11, i had hair down to my shoulders. I didn't really know how to make a style out of it, so i just git the front cut into bangs.

    Also i was extremely fat so i had man titties. I only had one guy refer to me as a "she", but I'm sure he wasn't the only one who mistook me for a girl.

    But a year or two later, i got my hair cut, lost a lot of weight, and started to grow stubble. (Yes, i began to get facial hair in my early teens... i was a bit of an early bloomer).

    • They are the gender they identify as a man who transitions into a woman is a woman and vice versa

  • When i worked for ups as a driver helper i worked with a female driver and it was hilarious whenever she would be mistaken for a man. She didn't look super feminine and she had a raspy voice, but she always responded with an annoyance. She called one guy ma'am like four times until he cought on. Some people she just ignored, it was funny tho.

  • It happened a few times until I was 14-15, because of my short cut hair and the lack of girlish forms.
