Closest they ever get to the truth.

Someone wrote…

I don’t like getting read as a straight girl. Or as a lesbian. Or as a young boy. But that’s the closest they ever get to the truth. How do I learn to present as an ungendered asexual?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I’m not sure. There are some people who will be able to tell, but if not, I think the only real way is to just tell them flat out if you want them to know.
