    I pass as straight, white and somewhat normal. Most people can tell I'm somewhat depressed/anxious so they act weird around me. I'm getting better at acting normal. What do you pass as?

    I pass as a straight South Asian (Pakistani) Muslim female. I pass as a Muslim because people love assuming pakistani girls are Muslims. They assume I'm straight because i present as feminine. Basically people just love stereotyping.

    I'm that creepy androgynous pale person who sits in the corner of the room either spacing out or staring at people.

    Whether 'passing' as ace counts, I'm sort of like Spock when it comes to the interrogation of my sexuality. Raised eyebrows and a head tilt.

    Straight. A lot of heterosexual men can't tell I'm gay. Women seem to pick up on it right away though.. Not sure why or how.

    Generally, people tend to assume that I'm gay.

    Then I have to correct them and say, "I'm actually bi."

    Most people assume that I'm straight. It's kinda frustrating, because even when I tell someone that I'm gay, many people think that I'm joking. :dry:

    At least they can notice that you're attracted to guys (?. which could be something good and bad at the same time.

    True.

    It's still frustrating that the concept of a guy being bi is so foreign to a lot of people.
    And it becomes obvious to people that I'm attracted to guys when they see me with my boyfriend.

    I pass as a bisexual or gay young man most of the time.

    Lots of people assume I'm lesbian, but around my family I pass as the religious straight girl who does everything right (lol)

    I pass as straight, and white... Because I am white to the point where I look like a ghost. I'm super pale.

    Eh, a girl told me once that when she first met me, she thought I was a boy. Then again, we didn't get on so well so she was probably just trying to upset me because I insulted Justin Bieber in front of her. I do have a pretty androgynous face but people know I'm a girl, although I'm pretty confident that I could pass as a guy with a few tweaks, if I wanted to.

    Typically people peg me as a lesbian female. Annoying at times.

    I think I pass for straight with straight people because I have long hair, but gay people probably figure me for a lesbian.

    I pass as a straight cisgender young female. I'm not very worried about the way I look, so I don't pass as a feminine lady sometimes.

    I pass as a "normal" straight white cis girl living the traditional middle class life. Basically boring but safe.
