Feminism Test – What Kinds of Feminist Are We?

So I took this what-type-of-feminist-are-you test that someone created. It’s 42 questions, but only took me a few minutes.

Is this a meaningful result? I’m skeptical. I did expect to be pegged as a liberal feminist, but the test said I’m just as much Marxist as liberal, which seems odd but not impossible. I was even more surprised that I scored as high as I did for radical and cultural feminism, since I think of myself as somewhat opposed to both.

Still, it’s fun to take tests. If you take it, please post your scores in the comments, and also how you expected to be classified before taking the test.

    I scored highest in Cultural, which is in no way what I’d have anticipated.
    Overall for me:
    23% Traditional
    65% Liberal
    63% Radical
    65% Marxist
    70% Cultural

    What I did NOT like is that Anti-feminists’ opinions were also employed while formulating the questions. Some I found to be neither true nor false so I felt stuck with the middle position (which was not a position I even held).

    Going in I expected that you and I would get about the same scores, Amp, except that I’d be higher on liberal feminism and lower on Marxist feminism.

    28% traditional, 74% lib fem, 54% rad fem, 66% Marxist fem, 51% cultural fem. So pretty close, really, with Marxist feminism being the biggest difference, and liberal feminism exactly the same.

    One thing about the quiz was that I felt like I needed a grade beyond “strongly disagree”….

    Traditionalism: 54%
    Liberal Feminism: 79%
    Radical Feminism: 28%
    Marxism Feminism: 38%
    Cultural Feminism: 28%

    Reading the descriptions, I think having lib fem and traditionalism in first and second place marks sense. I’m not sure I would expect marxism to be in third place, but that could just come down to the particular questions.

    Traditionalism: 18%.
    Liberal feminism: 75%.
    Radical feminism: 63%.
    Marxist feminism: 72%.
    Cultural feminism: 60%.

    For what it’s worth. I’m just relieved that I’m less traditional than Amp, that hidebound fuddy-duddy.

    Seriously? says:

    33% / 67% / 28% / 82% / 57%

    I expected to have much lower scores. And of course, as opposed to Amp, I am not surprised at all where my highest score is.

    I couldn’t tell you what I expected before the test because I have no idea what the distinctions among those different kinds of feminist are. And I couldn’t answer either “Agree” or “Disagree” to a couple of the questions.

    I got 61%/73%/18%/23%/25%

    Seriously? says:

    Yes, it is fun. Now, for extra fun, I’m going to take this test in a specific manner. I will leave it at neutral on every question, except the ones that make me violently sick, and answer those as “strongly agree” or “strongly disagree”, in the opposite direction of what I feel. Lets see what brand of feminism that produces.

    Weird. As I was taking the test, I was thinking that I was bypassing too many questions to make it a valid experiment. But at the end, I still got very high results. Fishy.

    37% / 42% / 70% / 58% / 69%

    So I guess that the radical feminists are the one I really can’t stand.

    Forcing myself to answer all of them, including ones with contradictory statements:

    Traditionalism: 35%
    Liberal Feminism: 84%
    Radical Feminism: 31%
    Marxist Feminism: 44%
    Cultural Feminism: 31%

    I actually thought this as I was taking the quiz, and then I snorted coffee through my nose when I read that. I thought you’d like to know.

    57% Traditional
    83% Liberal
    21% Radical
    34% Marxist
    23% Cultural

    I’m not horribly surprised by these results, it makes sense that a centrist conservative would score higher in “traditional”, and a lot of my positions boil down to classical liberal thinking. The other three categories are for you armpit-hair fish-bike hippies. :3

    I liked the definitions they used…

    “Liberal Feminism refers to feminist philosophy rooted in enlightenment principles. […] This type of feminism holds that men and women are each other’s equals and as such deserve equal rights.”

    “As opposed to other forms of feminism, Liberal Feminism is individualistic (rather than group-based): Men and women deserve equal rights because both are individuals. Rights are granted to individuals, not genders or groups.

    Liberal Feminism believes in equality of rights, not in equality of outcomes. For example, if a profession is dominated by only one gender, that does not necessarily mean that something is wrong: It could be the result of individuals making different decisions in life.”

    If that was what I thought mainstream feminism was, I’d call myself a feminist (But I don’t, so I don’t).

    I didn’t know what to expect, but got these results:
    6% traditionalism
    63% liberalist
    82% radical
    91% marxist
    82% cultural
    Reading through the definitions under the test, I see what gave me such a high score on the cultural one, even though I don’t agree with that position very much.
    Trying to pay post this again, hope I don’t get the duplicate message again.

    Sarah says:

    Traditional 25%
    Liberal 74%
    Radical 60%
    Marxist 64%
    Cultural 58%

    I had to leave a lot of questions neutral because I couldn’t parse them sensibly from within my own understanding of feminism. (I generally understood what the question was asking, but it was a question whose premise I had already rejected, so I didn’t want to skew the results by answering one way or the other.)

    I perceive myself as somewhere between a liberal and a marxist feminist (according to the definitions given by the quiz). I would have called myself an intersectional feminist before reading those, but they say intersectional feminism is a mashup of marxist feminism and cultural feminism, and the definition for cultural feminism skeeves me out.

    I thought Seriously?’s idea was an interesting one, so I did a quiz that way, too. Here are my least-liked groups:

    Traditional 58%
    Liberal 34%
    Radical 50%
    Marxist 44%
    Cultural 52%

    Traditionalism is the one I disagree with the most, but only slightly. I’m surprised radical feminism didn’t score higher, because I answered “strongly agree” on both the pornography and sex work questions, but it’s still at 50%. Cultural feminism scored over 50% here too, so clearly I both agree and disagree with it on some topics.
