As a woman I do say partner a lot to refer to my husband. When I say partner of people do assume my SO is a woman. Now I live in the ME so people make this assumption less often but it does seem to give people in the LBGTQ community the signal that it’s ok to come out to me. I’ve never minded being mistaken for a lesbian and I do like signaling a safe space for people that might need it .
