I think I pass as straight?
I have previously entirely passed as a straight, white, somewhat reserved, and inaccurately presumed as conservative (politically) individual. Mostly due to the way I dressed.
On the other hand, when I step out on certain days now, I don't look anything like my former self. I hadn't thought of myself as passing until you phrased the question the way you did. So I guess I pass as something. I would say where I am people assume that I'm a crossdresser (again that to me would be inaccurate).
As a straight, white, guy
Most people probably see me as a straight Caucasian dude.
I've had family, friends, and people at work who thought I was gay. I guess I act somewhat feminine, I thought I might be trans years ago but I'm pretty sure I'm somewhere in between.
People assume I'm straight (I'm not), people assume I'm white (I'm Hispanic, albeit my skin is light for a Hispanic), and people assume I'm under 20 (I'm almost 25).
I don't care anymore.
Straight male, according to my friend (some guy online thought I was a trans man, so I must be doing something right!)
I pass as a white male, and some people think I'm gay and some think I'm straight. Both are wrong, but I'm not going to correct them
I get pass as a straight male a lot by women and men and strangely enough by gay men when I'm in a gay club .... go figure!!!
Apparently, people think I am straight even though I'm not that feminine. I think It's just the norm to assume that.
Straight, white, ridiculously shy and awkward. People don't usually talk to me for very long, as I have trouble maintaining the conversation and we eventually have an awkward silence. o.o
People also seem to take me for being girlier than I am. I wear skirts and dresses a lot, but that's just because they're comfy; I don't care much about what I look like. I am also seen as extremely innocent, apparently. Just ask my friends and they'll tell you I'm very different from what people expect. Which is very annoying, because people judge me by my first impression as someone completely different from me. -_-'

I'm not really sure anymore. Half the time people can tell but the other half, people are completely shocked that I'm gay.
Oh, and as for my orientation, people assume I am straight, because, well, unless we start talking about crushes, why would they realize I'm gay? People are surprised when they find out I'm not straight. A couple people have tried to tell me I'm not gay. I think I would know my own orientation better than them. Mostly people believe me, though. I think.
I pass as a straight Hispanic male, but I think I could pass as Indian or middle eastern in certain places, I think.
I'm a light skinned Hispanic as well. Most people assume I'm a regular white person, Eastern European or part Asian. No one really guesses I'm Hispanic and I'm happy about that. As a queer person I hate Hispanic stereotypes. They don't represent me at all. I really don't want people to compare me to jlo or Sofia Vergara.
Straight, white, naive, and living in a little world of my own
I am quite pale but not to an extreme. I've heard the comparisons to ghosts and sheets. One of the most creative remarks I heard is "you're as white as a goldfish that was left in the dark!"
If they can tell I'm trans, usually gay (if they don't understand what trans really is). Most people who just can't tell and/or believe I'm a girl, then usually straight, sometimes bi.
A butch lesbian :bang:
Sometimes a 16 year old boy.
