Friday Quiz: What Kind of Feminist Are You?

Gender-Liberal
You scored 66% Gender-Abolitionist, 60% Sexually Liberal, and 20 % Socialist

You are the Gender-Liberal. This means that you share qualities with
both Liberal Feminists and Gender Abolitionists. Like the Liberal
Feminist, you feel political change needs to be done on a small-scale
level through legislative change, not necessarily through a massive
destruction of class society through the adoption of an extremist
socialist stance. You are also very concerned with sexual liberation,
and feel that women should be free to do what they please sexually
without criticism, just as men should be free to do. However, you
differ from the Liberal Feminist culturally, because you see gender as
a social construction that needs to be destroyed. Like the Gender
Abolitionist, you realize that gender is often perceived as one’s
identity, when it should only be perceived as a small, insignificant
part of that person. We shouldn’t be able to say “This person IS a
woman”. Rather one should say something more akin to “This person HAS
the physical traits of a woman”. This way, we wouldn’t be assuming
someone’s physical traits are a part of their identity, and we couldn’t
use this difference to oppress them or categorize them. In short, you
advocate extreme cultural change through the destruction of gender
roles, but politically you are less extreme, instead focusing on
individual or legislative change as opposed to a massive change of
ideology.

    Great quiz. Also great is that my score was almost identical to yours. (My “gender abolitionist score was 100%. But everything else was the same.) All of which speaks in favour of the two of us being ABSOLUTELY RIGHT about these matters. Convergence of expert opinion being an indication of truth, ‘n all.

    Excellent!

    I had a tough time with that quiz, because there were so many ‘what ifs’; on the whole, though, I’m pretty pleased with my score.
