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.

Gender I'm open with 100%
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;
