<lj-cut text="Feminism Test"

You scored 83% Gender-Abolitionist, 100% Sexually Liberal, and 100 % Socialist
You are the Revisionist Feminist! You are, by far, the most
philosophical, the most sexually-liberated, and the most politically
extreme variety of feminist. You are very, very freedom-oriented. You
abhor oppression in all forms. For instance, your views on sexual
liberation and reproductive control adequately reflect your devotion to
personal freedom. Not only that, but you also feel gender needs to be
destroyed to maximize equality and freedom, because accepting
socially-constructed gender roles binds women into false categories and
places upon them an unneeded identity. Gender should not be a part of
one’s identity, but rather an irrelevant aspect of their physical
bodies, such as their hair length or nose shape. Not only that, but
Revisionist Feminists are political extremists and feel very strongly
that the oppression of class society is a big part of the cause of
women’s oppression. Basically, a Revisionist feels that cultural ideas
of gender, political class, and repressive sexual morality all work
together to oppress women, and the only way to truly escape this
oppression is to challenge all of these problems directly and
extremely. You are a Marxist, a Gender Abolitionist, and a Liberal
Feminist all rolled into one.

The other feminist types:

The Housewife

The Marxist

The Liberal

The Liberal Extremist

The Gender Abolitionist

The Radical

The Gender-Liberal

The Revisionist

This quiz cracks me up for its statistical sampling and extensive use of percetnages when only 32 two or three option questions frame the entire results, and yet you get so many different flavors of feminist out of it. Just what we need are more labels and divisions, right?

What saddens me is the part that I didn’t cut: The fact that I got straight 5oth percentile on Sexual Liberation means no one my age who took the quiz thinks sex with men is bad for women, which is surprising (come on, nobody?) and yet only depressing when 98% of those respondents are less Marxist than me. When sexual reedom is equated with power for women, doesn’t that just scream that we are lacking some basic economic equalities? It’s okay, I just have the vapors. I know I know, its just a quiz, but I’m paranoid about the popularity of Libertarianism. Even though I can’t wait to watch more Tucker Carlson on MSNBC, he is the perfect prelude to the Daily Show and while I would have been annoyed to have him join PBS, I really respect his intellectualism. Prick. I would have scored so much lower on Gender Abolition if it wasn’t for all the questions being framed directly from “genderqueer.” I would have liked to see more questions focussed on women’s (economic?) roles in reproduction and how that affects gender, not to mention how it broadens the abortion litmus test, which I am sick of because its become political shorthand in a society where nobody seems to remember why it matters.
