Due to her posture, androgyny and choice of men's clothing, she is more often than not seen as a boy (something which she doesn't seem to mind). Later in the game it is shown that she does not dress in masculine clothing because she wants to be a man, but rather she sees it as a way to be respected. She enforces this by explaining that her age was already making it difficult to be included in investigations, and her gender would only complicate things further.
