I've been accused of being a 13-year-old boy, had people demand to see pictures of my boobs to "prove" I was really a girl, and been accused of being "the voice" while my boyfriend was playing.
I also had an awesome experience on PC TF2 with my team - two groups of college-age guys, one from the US, one from Argentina. The US group didn't speak Spanish, the Argentinian group didn't speak English. I hadn't said anything and wasn't planning to, until one of the Americans said "Yo quiero cabeza." What he said was "I want head," what he meant was "I want beer" (cerveza, not cabeza). I corrected him when the Argentinian group laughed. Everybody got quiet, someone said, "dude, you're a girl?" which was immediately followed by "And you speak Spanish?" I ended up translating coordinating orders from one group to the other and we had a BLAST. It was kinda awesome.
But usually I just don't say anything so I don't have to deal with the crap.
