Twice this week I've been mistaken for a girl! When I was at the library on my laptop this guy came in and started talking to one of the librarians. He asked her if people can hook their laptops up in there and she was explaining how, then she pointed at me and said 'See, SHE'S on her's right now working on something.' If looks could kill, she'd be lying on the floor. And if she's going to judge someone's gender by hair, she was a total man. Short white hair. Then I was loading feed bags in the back of the truck and this old guy who is an employee at the feed store was outside working on something. He hollered over 'Do you need help with that Ma'am?'. Now I wasn't going to stop and argue about my gender so I just said 'No'. Yet he continues to walk over and starts helping me. I tell him that he doesn't need to, that I've got it. I put most of it in myself anyway, but after I had closed the tail gate he turns to me and (while looking me straight in the face I might add) says 'I hope you didn't misunderstand me, my wife helps me all the time out in the field, I know women can work'. UM. DO I LOOK LIKE A WOMAN?! Sure, I have longer hair, but I wasn't wearing anything specifically 'feminine' and I don't think I look like a girl. I just turned around and got in the pickup because I was about to bust his head off. And even if I was a woman, if he says women can work, why stop and help me? anyway. Obviously I'm still mad about that. Maybe I need to get a shirt that says 'I'm a man' or find something to wear that is specifically 'male'. Just put me in a dress and call me a lady! Ugh! Yes, go ahead and laugh your head off. Has anyone else had this problem or mistaken someone's gender before? Share..?
