Lets be honest I'm completely fine with saying I'm a female that has no clue what my sexual orientation is, be it online or in real life, if I get bullied or anything for it then well, I just listen to music, then when my friends online talk to her and sorta laugh about the whole thing x3

So yea... pretty open about that stuff :3

I don't really speak to anyone online but I honestly don't really care who knows, but I am a bit more open in real life. For gender. The rest, I've never been in a relationship and I honestly don't care at all.

I don't go around flaunting that I'm an asexual, but if people ask I'll tell them.

Only my close friends know about my gender.

For the record, I'm genderfluid, asexual, and homoromantic.

I guess that isn't the first thing on my agenda to tell people, irl or online. I mean, if I was asked, then sure, I'll tell the asker, but I just don't go around saying to people I see "Hi, here is my gender and orientation, have a nice day" because I really don't think of it that often.

Sexual orientation I'm open with online, for some reason, and only let a few close people know in real life. God damn I still haven't told my parents that's upsetting orz

I'm asexual which some people won't take seriously so it's pretty annoying to trust your sexuality with someone only for them to be like "That's not a real thing" or "Your mind will change when you're older" :| I know not everyone's reaction is like that but when it happens it's very irritating

I don't mind being honest about my gender either online or offline xD but Orientation I can only be open with it online.

I'm too scared to be honest about it IRL ;w;

I tend to keep personal information at a minimum online. I like less leads pointing to me. Gender I keep public though due to the fact that it is pretty much standard. Orientation I usually don't tell. I find people knowing it unnecessary, but I will tell if I have/need to.

Yaa xD ik. But i forgot to include, for the reason that I don't see myself getting past dating, I can't date a girl. It's just asking for drama and/or heartbreak.

No no no.
Since I don't see myself actually marrying or adopting a child with a girl I find it kind of a bad idea to date a girl. 
Like what if it's far into the relationship and there is a proposal or something of the sort? Then it gets complicated. Why put myself and her through that?

I'm pretty open about both gender and orientation online, I won't really go exclaim everywhere what I am or so but if someone asks or misjudges me then I will go ahead and state what I am. Especially if people misgenders me, because that really annoys me for some reason...

In real life however, I'm not so open. I'm just too scared to really stand up for myself in that way and I'm also just terrible at talking to people face to face in general. I'm especially closed in when it comes to orientation, kind of got thrown of from even trying after the time my sister laughed and called the orientation I see myself as ridiculous when I tried to get talking about the subject around orientation ._.

Here is a pretty standard test. Get a set of different kinky images of men, women, and transgender and see which one gives you a boner.

Yes, I am fully aware there are children around here, but 13 year olds already know this (11 if your lucky)

Gender:
If a random person online asked me about my gender I'd be a little scared xD 
I'm pretty opened tho, both on and offline. (kind of hard to hide IRL )

Orientation:
irl most of the time I'm like "er, whatever, long as there not an ass."
Pan romantic takes too much time to explain :XD:

I know. I hate it so much, they think it's ridiculous to have gay characters. I'm completely used to it, I even have some of my own, I just haven't shown them yet. They'd start a lecture with me if they found out. ugh e_e
