Are You a Feminist?

Hey, no need to hurt your pretty little head thinking about complex subjects, because now there’s a quiz for you!

Are you a feminist?

Your Result: You are a full blooded feminist!

You believe in women’s rights all the way and continue to be unhappy with the way things are right now and wish for more change. You are willing to take part in marches, boycotts and meetings that involve the amelioration of women’s issues. You realize that society views feminists negatively but still are proud to call yourself one. You are appalled to see women who don’t have a clue that “gender” is simply a term which the definition is 100% man made. If you feel a comment is sexist or makes you uncomfortable you speak up on it! You are always aiming to help others become aware of how much further women need to go and how society restricts them and predetermines their roles. You hate that feminists are so devided in themselves and believe that only if they are unified can they make a difference. We need more of you!

There is a strong feminist inside you! Let it out!
You are being held back by society’s constrictions
Are you a misogynist!?
Are you a feminist?

I am disturbed by a few things here:

  • The heteronormativity implicit in the quiz, complete with the occasional lesbian-baiting.
  • The misspellings and typos. Are we to believe feminists don’t know how to use spell check?
  • My test result spit this out: “You hate that feminists are so devided [sic] in themselves [sic] and believe that only if they are unified can they make a difference.” Because unification is so easy! Gosh, y’all…colonization, imperialism, globalization…why can’t we just be unified!
  • My test result also says: “There is a strong feminist inside you! Let it out!” Screw you, quiz writer. My feminist is out!

Grumble, grumble!
