Ever get harassed because of your non-standard gender presentation?

I am curious how many of you with non-standard gender presentation are harassed because of it.

Pretty much never. I get weird questions online but offline no one seems to see what I wear as non-gender-normative. I did have a bad experience with a teacher at my school once but other than that I've been fortunate.

My gender presentation is pretty standard, I'm 100% male and look it. But if you're asking before i passed completely, i did get harassed a bit. In middle school i was harassed on a daily basis, but hey, that's middle school. Mid high school when i first started on hormones people would joke that i looked like a dyke and that they thought i was a girl (I was completely stealth to these people).

Well, I never have to worry because I am going to a liberal university, but once in a while I get harassed, usually by an older individual, strangely enough...

I present androgynous, so I tend not to get many comments, and I'm happy letting people assume whatever gender they like about me.

A few months ago an angry customer at work said some insulting things ("can't even tell if you're a man or a woman"). No doubt the customer would have found something else to insult if my gender presentation were standard, they seemed like that sort of person.

That's horrible that your parents treat you like that, tiniest bird.

Really, never. As owners of a Swinger's Club.. we have been told by a few Guests over the years that say they will not attend a Bisexual Party, but it was never aimed directly at us for our Sexuality.

I got harassed when I was still trying to use women's restrooms, lol. But I pass most of the time now, so I'm just the cute young straight guy that no one pays attention to.

I regularly used to be, but I can't answer this poll because I'm not anymore.

The only person who has harassed me is my own mother! Luckily I don't live with her, or near her, and we don't talk super often.

I do when I run into old friends from high school who knew me before and don't know about my transition.

Never.

Most people either think I'm androgynous or a little boy.

They don't harass me for either. Sometimes I get told, "Is that a he or she or it?" I don't care. It's so normal now that I feel like something's up when no one questions what gender I am. I kind of like everyone being like "?!!!" because it gives me another story to add to my millions

I will still be approached by people that knew me from my past a couple times per year and they won't be too accepting of my transitioning. However, I've been passing in public for years now, so I'm not clocked too often to have deal with the problems that I used to. When I first started, I was harassed weekly, and was assaulted twice.

People tend to judge me whenever I have my male days, being bigender, and think I can't even "pull it off". It's so annoying. Especially when people use the wrong pronouns.

It happens every now and again but I mostly just ignore the ignorant asses that do it.
