Your Score: The Basic Feminist


You are 76% on your way to being a Feminist!




You're a Feminist! Congratulations!


You have a good idea of what sexism is, how to avoid it, and how to stand up for women and/or yourself. You might have read some basic Feminist literature or thought in passing, and thought that it was pretty good. Sometimes you baulk a little at overtly identifying yourself as a Feminist due to the negative stigma. Don't be ashamed of being right! Just keep on doing what you're doing and exploring more ways to treat everyone with respect because of their humanity, not their parts, and you're helping to fix the problem!

This quiz was kind of weird. I found some of the questions ridiculous, some overly defensive in tone, and some unintentionally hilarious. I don't think this was a real gage of my -- or anyone's -- actual thoughts on feminism so much as the quiz writer's personal test on political and social issues, the same as she might give to a friend of a friend to see if she wants to hang out with him or her again.

Despite what the quiz result theorizes about me, I have in fact not read any basic Feminist literature. I just figure equality under the law is common sense. So are equality of opportunity and keeping the government out of one's reproductive decisions. I basically answered most of the questions by keeping in mind how I would want to be treated in the circumstances described. Not a biggie.
