I've Never Zhooshed

You Are 42% Stereotypically Gay

You definitely have some stereotypically gay traits. You might set off a person's gaydar now and then. If you are not actually gay, you could be mistaken for gay from time to time. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Just a bit of randomness: I forget where I first saw this, was it on Java's blog? To be honest I was a bit surprised by the results; I expected to score much higher gay-wise. Undoubtedly many of you agree. For the record, I have frequently used the word 'festive', but it's alway been ironic. Ditto with 'you go, girl'. Okay, I doubt anyone ever says that one seriously. I have at least once told a ranting homophobic closet-case to 'sing it, sister.'

I do not now, nor have I ever owned a feather boa. I say this free of any judgement. Just stating a fact.

How do the times when I've been mistaken for a woman figure into this data, do you suppose? No idea if anyone has ever thought I was a lesbian.

I have two straight male friends who have played gay onstage many more times than I have. It took me a while to realize it was because they've just played more romantic lead roles than me, period. In this day and age, that has them kissing guys from time to time. I think at least one of them owns a feather boa, too. Theatre people skew these sorts of tests, when you get right down to it. I guess the test itself recognizes that fact.

Aren't you glad you stopped by? Somebody needs to go to bed.

I wonder how low I'll score...I had to do a search of 'Zooshed' before I realized that's how that was supposed to be pronounced. Never done it, but I know the expression...wouldn't have imagined it was spelled like that!

No feather boas here...the cat would make short work of one, I imagine. We do have a sequiny scarf thingy...and a now obsolete (mostly) smoking jacket.

It wasn't on my blog, but it soon will be. I'm quite curious to know how I'll score. Stay tuned for more.

I found it on Java's: 35% for me. And it didn't ask how many times I've been mistaken for a man. (Four that I know of.)

Word verification is getting interesting lately. Today's is "ropen:" to undo the velvet ropes at a theatre.

I took the test. It said:

You Are 15% Stereotypically Gay

You're not gay, or if you are nobody knows. You don't act in a stereotypically gay manner at all. You wouldn't set off anybody's gaydar. Bask in your un-gayness!

For the record, I'm not going to bask in un-gayness! I am who/how I am! And if I'm so "not gay," how come I keep sleeping with a man every night? ;)

Well! I scored 50 percent. Guess that shouldn't be any surprise though, since I'm half gay.

I scored a 31%.
