    I have no idea what any of this says about me. I thought some of the questions were absolutely ridiculous, though. Then again, there are several things in Western civilization that seem ridiculous to me.

    The important thing is that you got a label to define you.
    I don't know what it means though.

    The problem is that there are too many agendas all trying to fly under the same banner, while also trying to exclude the other agendas that are also trying to fly under that same banner. My suggestion is to simply find a term that clarifies your specific agenda and use it to preface your use of the term "feminist". I know this is a bit of a nuisance, but such are the times we live in.

    I am an 'empathetic feminist'.

    I think women ought to have the freedom to do whatever they want. Be it progressive or traditional. I suspect that might be the liberal view.

    I consider me an intersectional feminist with liberal ideas.

    This makes me wonder if there's any sizeable group of humans or any notable movement of us that escapes internal, often insulting or angry arguments about who is or who isn't a bona fide member of the group?

    I don't know of any. Anyone?

    Mine was 63% traditionalism, 52% liberal feminism, and then lower on the others. I thought some of the questions were kind of too general, or just strange in general. I heard on NPR that women had 208 years to go before gaining true equality with men, which is nonsense in my opinion...208 years, really?! I don't think anyone should be oppressed for who they are, but I also believe in the uniqueness and individuality of men and women. Anyway, not sure what that score means in a practical sense, if anything, but I can say I took it. :p

    I'm not terrible fond of divisions, thus I believe in full equality for both, and that also includes the religious arena.

    Now that I have your label, I no longer have to read your
    posts. I know everything about what you stand for.

    What does Islam have to do with Feminism? There's a strange connection to be made.

    Well, I suppose a critical stance towards feminism has something to do with feminism, but not sure where Islam comes in.

    I got 77%Marxist feminism, 75%Liberal feminism, 58% cultural feminism, 56%radical feminism, 26%traditionalism.

    I'm guessing it was that question about state reserved CEO positions that gave me 56% "radical".
