Produced by Loan Nay, 16 I’m a girl who doesn’t dress femininely, so people make assumptions about my identity. I don’t like this whether the assumption is true or not because it’s uncomfortable that people who don’t know me feel that they can assume things because of the fabric I’m comfortable in. The way a person dresses shouldn’t be an open invitation to make assumptions about someone’s identity, but that’s how it gets treated in our society.  I talked with Shane Calvin about how people generally perceive someone based on how they dressed. I was curious to ask Shane if people make assumptions about his sexuality because of the way he dresses.
