Perhaps you have features associated with masculinity? Sharp jawline maybe?

Because you probably look like a boy. You cant expect people to not assume.
I get called sir quite a bit in public as a girl. I laugh it off and move on, its not worth correcting.

they are probably assuming going by the short hair, hoodie combo and if you dont have makeup on then that doesnt really specify what gender you are if ygm
