Maybe you should try a little harder to look like one
@27 Well, I'm not sure if she means that she doesn't feel like she looks like a girl or that people mistake her gender. I know that's a subtle difference. If she didn't care, then I'd say tell everyone to fuck off. However, I agree that if she's frustrated by it then by all means make a change.
I am a tomboy and I look like a dude, dress like a dude and in general behave like a dude, so I'm not bothered whenever anyone takes me for one (though I admit I was a bit surprised when I was first called a 'sir' by a shopkeeper). If OP takes such offence to being called a boy, I believe she should take some steps not to look like one.
To be fair, and I'm not trying to be hateful, just direct... I've seen many women that still wouldn't 'look like a woman' whether they put on makeup, a dress and heels or not... they would really just look like a man cross dressing as a woman. I can imagine such a situation would be incredibly frustrating.
Its hard since i have no idea what you look/dress like, but normally some makeup and more feminine clothing should solve that problem in a more...subtle way.
but what if she has boyish features in her face or body and is mistaken as a boy or transexual? I'm just guessing though, but it seems like a valid reason. Maybe she could just wear makeup or just wear some girly colors. I'm sure op looks like a girl or is pretty in anyway.
Hey Bill, look at the guy walking down the street with that T-shirt that says "I'm a girl"
You can be an androgynous model. With the right make up and hair extension, you will look like a girl. Without them, you will look like a guy
OP could just be a stocky girl. Broad shoulders, taller than the average girl, maybe dressing in baggy clothes etc. My friend has had the same problem before. Once she started wearing clothes that showed off her figure and just being a little bit more feminine about her looks did the trick. I would just try that.. good luck!
