    No but I have pretended to be straight when someone assumes I am and I miss the etiquette of a five second window of opportunity to correct them so I go along with it, which is a lot of fun making up a fantastic woman for myself.

    This.

    I haven't had people assuming I'm gay unless I was in a gay bar or club; no point in trying to convince someone there I'm straight. Why couldn't you just tell them you're not interested?

    I have pretended to be straight because that's what the other guy was into. icon_twisted.gif

    Never. I've certainly had unwelcome guys hit on me, but always used other truthful reasons to turn him down, like that I was already taken, or just on a trip from out of town with a tight schedule. Or else used that more cowardly approach: simply pretend to have business elsewhere in the bar (where these usually happened) and leave him there. Hey, guys have turned me down the same way, it's just how the game is played.

    Yes. I was 8 at the time and didn't understand the question.

    Well, kind of... I mean, I find it extremely rude when people ask "Are you gay?" so I just don't answer the question.

    No, but I do tell them that I'm into heavy scat. That seems to make their wood go soft.

    No. Men generally don't hit on me. It's the women that are problematic.
    When I am in settings I could be perceived as gay, my partner is always with me. He is capable of sending deadly glares.
    But I also agree with Jim_e.

    People obviously like to stalk you, whereas, it never happens with me.

    Honey, I can see why your partner might have to do that.

    Just once! I don't believe that.
    I don't need to tell people I'm straight. They would never guess me to be gay.
