Have You Been Asked if You're a Guy or Girl?

When I was younger, about ten or so, a shop assistant asked my stepmother if her son had any preferences after finding out I was looking to spend birthday money on a toy. I wasn't a boy. I still am not a boy.

I was walking through an almost empty classroom to get to the canteen when I was in yr eight. There were two year twelve boys sitting by the door. They asked me if I was a guy or girl (I was in the sports uniform) and when I said girl and left I heard one guy say 'poor thing sounded too used to answering that question.'

I was such a cute kid, and I guess I'm pretty good looking now beneath the pimples, but I do have an admittedly boyish face. It doesn't help that I keep my hair short and walk around in jeans and hoodies that do an unintended good job at hiding my breasts.
So I get misgendered a pretty decent amount.

I wanna know if anyone else runs into this same thing?
I won't call it a problem because I don't really care if someone mis genders me. I'm just curious how many other people it happens to.

  • No, but in highschool I did the whole emo thing, straight hair skinny jeans etc, and these two girls behid me were arguing whether I was a guy or a girl. Then I moved my head and one of them saw my face and said that I clearly had a guy gave. I would've been mad but then they said I was cute

Most Helpful Girl

  • No, apparently even as a baby everyone could tell I was a girl. My brother, on the other hand, was called a girl, and lady a few times. It was when he was young, like around 10, he was chubby with long hair and big blue eyes. A lot of people thought he was a girl.

  • Pleeeenty of times.
    I'm short, I wear bracelets, I wear skinny jeans, I have a very feminine/young looking face so sometimes little kids or people online ask if I'm a guy or a girl.

  • People have been calling me a boy since I was a newborn baby (my mom told me she would have pink bows in my hair and ear studs, but pl still called me a boy Lol) , up to the time I was 6. I hated it and it made me feel weird. Of course, my body hit puberty by the age of 7... already had rounder hips, a little pair of boobs etc. People couldn't mistake me for a boy ever again.

  • lol a lot by the kids in my karate class! i got small boobs, (the baggy gi doesn't help either), short hair that i usually pull back into a pony tail, and i sometimes speak in a lower voice when i'm trying to talk loudly to them. other than that no one really asks but i've gotten the occasional odd look because i usually dress in jeans and a sweater and hang out with guys.

    • My Gi was never really that baggy. I never got a summer one so in the summer id be boiling and the sweat would make the material stick to me. No mistaking anything then XD

    • lol our material's pretty loose stuff. it doesn't help that i wear a tank top underneath because it slides all over

  • I have never been asked that question. Not even when I was little.
