As a fellow agender person, I hate that the gender binary is so firmly entrenched that it is almost impossible to be read as neutral or genderless. Gender-neutral to most US-Americans means an “androgynous” presentation that presumes no curves, no facial hair, and no makeup. And even if you meet all of those criteria, most will still insist on categorizing you based on your presumed genitalia. Most people just can’t handle the idea that someone can actually not have a gender.
