I don’t ascribe to a gender construct based on attributes and/or societal norms.
I identify as male, but I’ve met people who identify their gender as non-binary (not a male/female opposition). Some examples of non-binary gender identity are neutrois (neither male or female) and agender (no gender identity). We must be careful not to confuse gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
People who have a gender identity of non-binary have told me that they’ve been bullied to the point of attempting suicide. This is unacceptable. People who gender identify differently than the societal norms of male/female have the same dignity as anyone else.
You equally combine femininity and masculinity!
I realize we’re in the Lounge, but I feel that’s there’s a need to further explain why I believe the article is a bad idea.
About four years ago, i was in a VA Outpatient Clinic waiting to see my psychiatrist. There were some magazines on a table, so I grabbed one and started reading it (it was not a scientific magazine). I was flipping through it when I came upon an article titled: How Schizophrenic Are You? There were 20 questions, and how you answered the questions determined if you were 10%, 30%, 60% schizophrenic, etc. I only remember the first question: When driving your car, how often do you look at the rear-view mirror? (I guess this was to determine paranoia.) What do you think about this type of test to determine how schizophrenic you are? And do you see any parallels with the test in this thread?
Like pretty much everyone else in this thread.
Absolutely agreed. For Entertainment Purposes Only, I figure it’s about as reliable as a What Kind of Pizza Are You test.
The article in the magazine (How Schizophrenic Are You?) had the same disclaimer.
I think these tests are just for fun - but sometimes - on certain sites - some tests help in finding the symptoms - and figuring things out. This was just on Facebook so it is fun.
I got normal results, but they also said 10% alien. ???
Look at any ancient Egyptian pictures with people… Note the leg spacing and which hands it has… Long stride with right leg says highly masculine usually a highly skilled warrior… Feet closer together shows balance between the two often showing wisdom and compassion… The hands can show the same most warriors have 2 right hands… Is @sirboring our fair and wise ruler…lol
I agree, @kindness and don’t want anyone to be so gullible as to be hurt by the outcome of such questions.
p,s, I look in the review mirror before taking a turn and think to any guy who is behind me because I know what it’s like to be rear ended.
I had a feeling this would happen.
I LOVE being a woman! including the make-up, high heels and everything but apparently I am 90% masculine, lol. I am the ambitious type woman though. Well, before I became a MI slug on meds I was ambitious. Funny how almost everyone is “90%” something.
