    I look more confusing than anything.

    Most people have absolutely no clue what my sexuality is. I have friends who asked me because they were so unsure xD I guess I don't seem particularly straight or gay.

    I think I fit a few stereotypes, "looking gay" whatever that may mean-is one of them. I don't hate it? Just because I'm out. As long as a person isn't being shit because they assume I'm gay I'm fine, plus it saves me time in the sense that I just ASSUME everyone thinks I'm gay-and never have to come out directly and say it? I just have to drop a hint about an ex, or some guy who is cute and just like that I can move forward with my life?

    My friends have addressed the way that i dress, because I never dress in a feminine way (I always wear t-shirts or big jackets and jeans or sweatpants, etc). I always said that i dress for comfort and that sort of thing. But when I thought about it it went deeper than physical comfort. I dont think I could ever feel comfortable wearing a skirt or any other type of feminine wear. And this isn't because I'm bisexual, because I didn't identify as bisexual until very recently

    As I'm typing this I'm figuring this out... amazing really

    I hope I don't. I'm honestly sometimes insecure about this. I took some photos of myself recently and I would say that based on them, my appearance isn't butch. However, some people will write you off as butch simply for not dressing/behaving like a traditional female, which can blur the lines a bit.

    No. I wear skirts all the time, makeup, have a feminine hair cut- definitely a "lipstick lesbian" :slight_smile:

    Depends on context. I think I look especially gay when I'm curled up naked next to my boyfriend

    Basketball shorts and t-shirts, never worn makeup a day in my life, haven't ever worn a dress willingly.
    But I'm not a cat person and don't wear flannel or snapbacks so...

    I'm slim and wear sporty clothes or ripped jeans. Is this a gay look?

    I have long hair and love dresses, and many of my straight female friends dress more tomboyish than I do. No one seems to suspect that I am a lesbian from the way I dress.
    It is my biggest fear that gay women won't believe I'm gay because of the way I dress/present myself.
    The first time I went to a lesbian support group I wore trousers and a sweater because I thought it was the "gayest" outfit I had...

    Maybe? (how "gay" are button downs and pants? what about pink long sleeved shirts? Pajamas?) I do like wearing dresses occasionally.

    I certainly don't fit the stereotype. I'm overweight, just a bit, have disheveled gray hair at the end of the day, and a long beard. But then does being gay or bisexual have a standard look? I hope not because I don't fit it.

    I'm not out yet, so I couldn't really say...no one's ever asked me so I can't look that gay? I mean I have short hair, wear no make-up, boyish clothes and have a very unfeminine attitude...but I wouldn't say that makes me obviously gay. It's weird because when I look at myself, for no good reason, I think- yeah, I do look gay. But that's coz I know I am, so obvs I can't see myself as looking any other way :slight_smile:
