You should have confused them and began talking in a different pitch
No, OP, you should have pulled out your boobies and started singing the milk shake song. Then start doing jumping jacks naked and get the girl to join in while you guys video taped yourselves kissing and send it to me through email. That's exactly what you should have done in a situation like this.
She didnt have to explain it, though. Ignorance is bliss sometimes :/
#4, I don't think your logic for hitting her would be correct: She came up to talk to her, to determine Op's gender. Op answered, revealing she was indeed female, and the questioner was thrilled to discover this, leading me to believe she was on Op's side in the first place by betting she was a girl. So while making such a bet may be a bit insensitive, Op would be slugging out the wrong person, IMO. :) Punch out her friends! ;P
It's nothing to feel ashamed of. We all are unique individuals, and not always clearly defined.
people confuse me for female on the phone all the time! I feel your pain!
That's pretty rude, maybe she should have kept that part to herself. Anyways, don't let that get you down OP!
It does seem rude that she did not consider that it would make op feel bad, but from the information given it doesn't seem like she was intentionally trying to offend her either. But, just because some stranger made an insensitive comment to op doesn't mean they have to feel bad! The beauty to life is that we get to decide how we want to see things :)
Neither being male or female is a bad thing, so what's so horrible about being confused with the wrong gender? It shouldn't be offensive. A little kid once asked my transgender friend if he was a boy or a girl, and he was totally okay with being asked. Little kids seem kinda wise in that respect; there shouldn't be anything wrong with asking someone that sort of thing. There's nothing wrong with a boy looking like a girl or a girl looking like a boy.
#22- not sure if that was a reply to 12 or 16, but 12's joke did in fact fit here, seeing as how Meg has gender identity crisis in almost every episode of family guy... And 16's reference to Pauly D, was also pretty accurate based on number 12's chosen hair style. So your comment is the only one I don't see working here....
