butch-femme test

jojojo's picture

there is a fun butch-femme test on the web.

http://members.tripod.com/~womens_voices/BF100/BF100.html

in case you're bored, or like tests :-)

If you take it, post here what the results are for you and if you agree with it.

Men can take it too, by the way.

For me the result was "soft androgyne", which is pretty much in the middle, leaning slightly towards "Femme". And I kind of like the result. It doesn't feel too far off. Just that I do like biographies, which "soft androgynes" apparently aren't supposed to ;-)

and one word on internet browsers... (didn't we have a lot about them recently?) When I first did it with firefox, something did not work. I tried it with Explorer then, and it worked. But I don't know if it has anything to do with the different browsers.

Hey I got soft androgyne,which is probably fairly accurate.I'm not butch but I'm not really a girly girl either.

Me too!

I got soft androgyne too.

I pretty much agree, although I think I'm slightly more girly than the description makes it out to be. Education is one of the most important things to me though. And... I am totally into decorating and beautiful places. So the whole 'not a showroom' thing is completely wrong.

This is a fun test, how did you find it?

Also: How is 'androgyne' pronounced?

jojojo's picture

pronunciation

I would think androgyne is pronounced like ... hm "an" like in and, "dro" like in drop, and "gyne" almost like gym, only with an n. And the stress on the first syllable. Anybody correct me if I'm wrong.

I actually only knew the word "androgynous" in English, before I did the test. But apparently there is also androgyne.

funny that so far everyone who posted was some kind of androgyne.

It's ANNE-drowh-gyne (rhymes with online).

I always go ^there for my pronounciation issues because it's such a great site. Mostly it's one automated male voice that pronounces words, but occasionally, it's a female. She always pleasantly surprises me. I named them both, and now my friends think I'm some psychotic wordnerd.

It said I was a soft androgyne, by the way.

ANDROGYNE
Your score placed you in the category of Androgyne. This is the true middle of the road, neither butch nor femme. You may also wish to review Soft Androgyne and Hard Androgyne, the two categories surrounding you. In a ranking across the femme/butch gamut, if 1 is femme and 100 is butch, you fall between 48 and 52 on the scale. For a review of where you fall in the overall population in numbers, refer to this chart. Your group encompasses folks of all types, genders, and orientations, though is not as large a part of the population as the hard and soft androgynes surrounding you.

You are the best of both worlds, and have absolutely no feeling of being either femme or butch. You see yourself as "you" and that's all that matters. You dislike labels, surprised yourself by even taking this test, and are now laughing as you identify with this definition!

You switch roles fluidly without thinking from nurturing/subordinate to providing/leading as the situation demands. You are often a jack or jill of all trades and master of a few, but not all.

In clothing you go for the practical, not always bothering with the concept of neatness if that interferes with comfort or the time it takes to get dressed. Wrinkles don't drive you crazy, though you do prefer to keep reasonably up to date in your style, without going to any extreme in it.

You are shy in many ways, being intimidated by overt aggression as well as complete silence in a conversation. You tend to babble to fill silent space and clam up when confronted.

Odds are good astrologically that you are a Libra, Pisces, Gemini, or Aquarius.

You're willing to try anything once as long as it does not pose a risk to you. You're also good at doing just about any job, as long as you find a way to get trained for it. Physically, you're average in fitness, not being overly concerned about being either "curvy" or "chisled". If you are female and have some endowments, you wear a bra in public but not at home.

For partners you are comfortable with all types, for you are a peacemaker and changeling at heart, changing yourself to fit the situation and avoid hostility. You aren't a doormat, though, and do express your opionions.

Yes I think the test is meant to be for anyone, thus also boys. Even though it was probably designed with lesbians in mind ;-) But never mind.

Androgyne

It was actually pretty accurate. Quite interesting, though I'm not sure if this is a gender test as much as a personality test. But then again, gender confuses me to begin with.

androgyne

Before today (this was before the test) I hadn't really thought of myself as.. just a girl, I didn't think anyone thought I was just me. Someone asked me if I was a boy today. And it got me thinking a lot on this subject, I thought it was pretty funny cause I was wearing a pink sweater, and then again I'm not exactly flat chested. This person just didn't understand that just because I have short hair doesn't make me a boy, it just makes me.. who I am.
Thanks for the test Jojojo.

...

Gentle Butch... You identify with being Butch and are proud of it, yet do not require yourself or your spouse to comply with gender roles in actions and relationships. You like to open doors for ladies but don't press the issue, and aren't offended if they prefer to open them themselves. In fact, you are at times tickled to have a door opened for you.
You work hard most likely in a job requiring manual labor of some kind or an emergency rescue or health care position. You handle human trauma well and have a strong stomach for it, but have a soft side if it involves children or the frail elderly.
You are physically fit and strong, even if disabled in some way you have compensated that loss in other strengths. You prefer a crisp, neat style bordering on preppy.
Your house is generally neat though at times you let it really slide, you're good at cleaning it up for the in-laws should they visit. Housework is not your forte, but you don't object to helping out with that.
For partners you prefer the more androgynous femmes as in the Strong Femme and Soft Androgyne, and for your buds you like other butches.

"Women in rubber will ALWAYS be flirting with me!" --Maureen in the musical RENT

Hard Androgyne

I'm still trying to decide if I like it or not... O.o

"Most of the time you really don't think of yourself as butch or femme, but if pressured, you tend to react aggressively - either to solve a problem or to defend yourself. You aren't extremely masculine, yet are more drawn to your masculine side than your feminine side.

Security is paramount to you, and the locks on your house and tendency to monogamy reflect that. You like money in the savings and a retirement plan in place. You are nervous and insecure without that. You are a good provider, often appearing in upper management positions, and are an excellent supervisor.

Logic and mathematics fascinate you, and you have a very good memory. You are best remembering what you have seen in a video sense - sound and picture. About half of what you read sticks with you and what you hear goes in one ear and out the other. Pictures you remember very well.

You like action adventure movies and books, though you don't read a lot. You are heavily into technology, computers, and fun lil gadgets to play with.

As a parent you are strict but not overbearing, and tend to be a bit over protective. You are a staunch defender of your legal rights.

For partners you prefer a softer femme, along the lines of the Classic or Lipstick Femme. For friends you encompass everyone, though you find Extreme Butches a bit plastic and pure Androgynes indecisive. "

Yeah, I'm thinking I like that. :nod:
