I've seen this on several mommy blogs. Reality is that if you are, you know it, and if you aren't, you know that, too. The quiz is more interesting because of how feminism is being framed, as well as the condescension that isn't even masked if you don't rate high as a feminist. I think that perhaps if the makers of this quiz went out of their little coterie of co-religionists and met the majority of women who don't identify themselves as feminists, they might get a bit of an education.

You Are 35% Feminist

No one would consider you a feminist. You believe women should hold on to traditional gender roles.
Well, that's not the world we're living in anymore. Time to wake up to the 21st century!
Are You a Feminist?

I especially liked this question, as it gave you a little glimpse into the mind and world view of the person/people who put together the quiz:

Men and women should be held to the same se*ual standards. If men can sleep around without judgment, women should be able to as well.

Evidently, these are our only options. I agree with the first sentence wholeheartedly, it's the second one I have a problem with. Since modern feminism seeks to bring women to equality with the basest of men, rather than the most estimable, and certainly won't hold men and women to an equally higher standard, this is the highest expectation anyone is thought to meet. We're equally pigs? No thank you.
