Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, You May Be Very Liberal But Are You Gay Or Lesbian Enough? And, if you're a sufficiently gay man (congratulations and all that) what kind exactly are you? And are you convincing enough? Not because it's Friday or anything, but you might as well know before you go out tonight, no?

Gah. I've taken both of those quizzes. I am quite gay, I assure you. I scored a 76% on the gay-o-meter and a 10 on the straight acting quiz. My partner, scored zero. Talk about opposites attracting.

hmmm...I'm 16% gay on gay-o-meter, level 3 - mostly straight acting on No wonder women hit on me. (I actually like the little butch icon for level 3 at

I'm 85% Fighter/Magic-User, but I can cast cleric spells once I level up.

I just want to be loved! Is that so wrong?

FYI: the first link may not be work safe....

Kitty is 50% gay!

Congratulations! You've scored right in the middle and are a happy and well adjusted hetero babe!

I knew that. ;)

Damn. 33% gay. Looks like I need to get something pierced.

Not work safe, Ufez? A nice ballet photograph with no naughty bits showing? From Channel 4, no less?

Boy oh boy, isn't the "work safe" definition becoming more and more puritanical! My own definition is that if it can be on the cover of Time Magazine and not raise an eyebrow, then it's work safe. This definitely passes that test.

What are you trying to do, anyway? Force people to work or something? Or did the gay meter go too wild for your taste? ;)

Miguel's workplace is a Portuguese brothel, so his definition of NSFW is not to be trusted.

That's why I said May not be safe for work, Migs. If you work in a church, or a government building or something like that.

Just like Kitty, 43% gay, a happy and well adjusted hetero babe.

I've never been called a hetero babe before. Life is looking up today.

But that practically rules out all MetaFilter users, Ufez!

40%. Good thing I decided not to give up regular soap for a facial cleanser or I'd have to take up an entirely new lifestyle.

Level 2 here. I need some more candles.

30% gay, Mig. It told me to lighten up Thom. I do, I pluck my eyebrows,(high pitch voice) and that hurts me.....
posted by thomcatspike at 9:33 AM on August 30, 2002

63% gay.

how you doin'?
posted by Sapphireblue at 9:43 AM on August 30, 2002

40%. Tell the truth, Miguel, you posted this test so we could self-select ourselves for the new files the government is setting up....
posted by rushmc at 10:01 AM on August 30, 2002

Hmm. How can I be 73% gay but Level 3 straightacting?

Btw, is the bane of the gay cruising circuit (errr... I've heard, I mean). People actual post their straight-acting number in internet profiles and such. Ludicrous. If they were so damn butch, would they be taking fruity tests on the internet?

66% gay and I'm actually Bi... Go figure
posted by BentPenguin at 10:04 AM on August 30, 2002

No, that would make sense, BentPenguin. As far as I can tell 33% or less is not gay enough; 50% means a perfectly balanced heterosexual; 66% must mean bisexual and anything over is unequivocally gay. That's pretty clear, is it not?

Hmmm...come to think of it, ket the go figure stand. ;)
posted by MiguelCardoso at 10:12 AM on August 30, 2002

Er, I meant let the go figure stand, hepket.

33% gay. For maximum ironic impact, taken while d/l p()rn.
posted by slipperywhenwet at 10:20 AM on August 30, 2002

Hmm. 76% gay, despite being in a happy straight marriage. Well, the boy is something of a lesbian, so I guess it's OK.
posted by Fenriss at 10:36 AM on August 30, 2002

60% gay here, down from 75% the last time I saw that test. Hmm...the new femme gf must be having an effect.

Grod IS 36% GAY!

What, I thought everyone experimented in high school :)
Just don't tell my girlfriend, she wouldn't understand.
posted by Grod at 10:51 AM on August 30, 2002

I'm level 3. I don't get it. I am straight... except that one time...

Ah, I know, it's the hair. Definately the hair. I have long hair and I take very good care of it. I don't dress well, I'm low maintenance, but I have long hair. And I like to gossip. Anyway, these are great fun. Most of my gay friends don't use the net, but I'm going to show this to them, they'll get a kick out of it.
posted by Grod at 11:00 AM on August 30, 2002

56% on the gay-o-meter and a level 5 on the straight-acting quiz... somehow I don't think anyone who knows me would be surprised.
posted by Mars Saxman at 11:14 AM on August 30, 2002

I scored about 25% gay. There is also a gay test at The Spark, on which I score much gayer.
posted by kate_fairfax at 11:20 AM on August 30, 2002

i think i scored 57% gay but i'm not sure 'cause i was working on my hair and my elbow slipped and hit the keyboard and went back a couple of steps in my history and now i can't find it but i don't care anyway because my hair looks really, really cute which is good because i think su said he wanted to go to ping pong for dinner on broadway which is totally cruisy so i need to be bulletproof. now i need to find my leather pants.

i'm sorry, what were we talking about..?

I'm apparently a pre-operative transsexual closeted radical lesbian ass pirate.

They have pigeonholes for EVERYthing these days.
posted by WolfDaddy at 12:03 PM on August 30, 2002

46% gay. Looks like I'm a happy heterosexual, er. babe.

They didn't have any questions about transvestite user names. I wonder if that would affect the final score...?
posted by thomas j wise at 12:11 PM on August 30, 2002

ColdChef is 60% gay. and I'm a limpwristed 8 on the feminine scale.

Bah. I was hoping I might be gayer so I could call off my wedding. Oh, well. Maybe I could just save all of my gayness up for a weekend trip each year to see Evanizer, my favorite bear.
posted by ColdChef at 12:21 PM on August 30, 2002

It guessed 30% for me, which is off by 70%. Gee, you'd think it would be a little more accurate, since the second question it asks is "Do you have sex with Men, Women, or Both?"
posted by dougb at 12:26 PM on August 30, 2002

Not gay enough.

Not gay enough for what exactly?

(And with questions like "would you rather meet you favourite footballer or meet him?" Gee, I don't know... would you prefer to meet your favourite unicyclist or meet him?)
posted by Grangousier at 12:39 PM on August 30, 2002

according to the first link, i'm
"63% gay: careful! you might be straight-laced, but any more butch and you'll have to fight off the girls!"

what's wrong with girls? why would attention from girls be any better or worse than attention from guys? is the assumption that a person of one gender would not want attention from someone of the same gender?

20% gay? I think I just set some sort of record for mefiers. And no, I don't watch WCW wrestling.

53% gay, a happy well adjusted lesbian babe.

Ahhh, life in the middle.

I, for one, welcome our new straight-acting queer overlords. (",)
