    I honestly don't know. I've been told I pass completely as a white dude, and that I have a touch of something there....and I've been told I pass white, but I don't look "european white".

    As for sexuality and gender wise, I don't know for sure if I pass as a "straight guy" or what.

    I pass as a straight cis male. I'm not straight at all, but I'm not really feminine, so I guess people don't think I'm gay. Those who wonder about often tell me they have no clue what my sexuality is.

    While I do pass as cis, people always assume I'm younger. I barely look like I'm major, so I always get asked if I'm really over 18, even if I'm almost 20. I think I look 16. Some people say I look my age, but they're in the minority.

    Nobody mistakes me for another ethnicity. I'm white as hell and my accent is unmistakably from Quebec, so I can't pass for an English native speaker, even if I wanted to.

    Usually pass as straight and female, but things might be different since I just got a pixie cut after having hair down to my butt.

    I'm a white cis male, and I've never been mistaken for anything else.

    No one has either suggested to my face or started rumors (that I discovered) that they think I'm not straight. However, the first friend to whom I came out, when I asked if he suspected anything, said that he thought I was probably gay shortly after we'd met - which was shortly after I came out to myself, and a couple of years before I came out to him. So there could be other people who feel that way and haven't said anything, but I'll never know unless they speak up.

    Annoying straight, and very depressed apparently (even though I try to hide it :\ ). I find it so annoying talking to people and them assuming I have a girlfriend, or should have one, even after they find out I am gay, they "refuse" to believe it as I do not "act" it. I am not overly masculine by any means at all, but nor am I feminine (well not around most people at least), so I find it frustrating to say the least. I find it impossible to "act" any other way than I am, though I do wish my personality would just switch to make me more obvious and less guarded, not that I feel like I guard myself. *sigh*

    Straight white cis female. Literally one of my closest friends had no idea I was gay and I didn't know she was either xD I present as somewhat feminine because of my long hair but my wardrobe is pretty androgynous. I would scream LESBIAN if I cut my hair though.

    Based on what people say: bisexual, male, and Portuguese. I'm (usually) none of those.

    I look like your typical white, straight, cis male. Everyone that I've come out to had no idea so I've been able to stay closeted with relative ease.

    I pass as a straight, mixed girl. Sometimes pass as white or Hispanic, but I'm half black, half white.

    Years ago people thought I was gay, now they see me as straight.

    I don't know. Some assume I'm straight, others assume I'm bi or lesbian. It depends on their level of intuition, it seems.

    I pass as a straight, white woman. I'm pretty feminine and outgoing, so people are shocked when I tell them I like women.

    I've been told by a few people that I'm not completely Caucasian. A few people have noticed that I have more olive-white skin. Probably because I am part Native American.

    There was a time when I wanted to pass as your average straight male but I stopped caring and just do whatever the fuck I want now. And yes, that makes it very obvious that I'm not straight at all.

    I pass as... Gay, mixed race, female and not very normal - slightly nutty.

    Seriously, people never think I'm straight (except maybe one side of my family... just because they're not looking I guess). Even when I thought I was straight they didn't think I was straight. That I'm a little bit iffy on but the rest is very accurate.

    Though tbh I don't know how people really read my race, I've had people call me black but I'm so far off of that, I'm just assuming they were just trying to make a point about me not being white, not actually thinking I'm 100% black. People from Tenereife when I go on holiday think I'm from there. So maybe I should say gay, Spanish, female.
