MMMMonday! Personal assumptions.

Each Monday, we bring you special, maintainer-curated content intended to enrich your VP experience. Please note that you can find past MMMMonday posts using the mmmmonday tag.

Also, a quick reminder about the other places you can find VP: vp_bulletins for local announcements; contact_vp for questions and feedback on the way VP is run; the Vulvapedia for basic questions; and don't forget about our sibling community over on Dreamwidth! We're also on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter!

Today, in the spirit of (and inspired by) Shakesville's questions of the day: What are some erroneous assumptions people make about you? Why do you think the assumptions are made? Do they bother you? Are those assumptions ever an asset? We'd just like to get some discussion going in comments, so if you're moved to, hop on in!

The main assumption is that I'm younger than I am, because I look younger than I am. It's extremely irritating when men are hitting on me and the only thing I have to do to get them to stop is to tell them that I'm actually legal. The other problem I have with it comes down to the getting a job bit. Apparently I look too young to be old enough to even drive, nevertheless work at some of the places I've been applying to.
