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 cute0

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.0
