Don’t assume people IRL to be cis; there’s no way of knowing their gender identity or how they identify. Just assume that they have no gender until you ask them what they are.
I feel like assuming people have no gender is super fucked up and just going to offend almost everyone? Like, maaaybe behave as though you don’t know their gender, but agender is a specific identity. Trans* people who try very hard to “pass” as their own gender would definitely not appreciate someone assuming they don’t have a gender, and such an assumption may even trigger dysphoria. Cis* people will be offended by both the assumption and the question (which is their own fault, and not terribly important on its own, but is at least worth noting).
Also, assuming someone is cis* is different than assuming someone is the gender they appear to present. Cis* and trans* are not genders. A transgender man’s gender is “male,” not “trans* male” or even just “trans*.” Do not assume anyone is cis*. Do not necessarily assume people are the gender they appear to be, but if someone is clearly trying to present as one gender, pointedly misgendering them (by behaving as though they don’t have a gender) makes you an asshole. A person wearing lipstick and a dress could be a person of any gender, but they are most likely either a cis* woman or a trans* woman. I can’t imagine any woman, cis* or trans*, who is presenting obvious female gender markers, being anything but hurt and offended by the assumption or the question.

Why go to dashcon when you could just go to your local McDonald’s ballpit and blog from there?
At least they would have free wi-fi
