You Are 43% Feminist
You aren't a total traditionalist when it comes to gender roles. But you're no feminist either.
You generally think that women should be treated as equals, but you're not convinced the world should be gender neutral.
I took this little quiz to see my feminist rating. The summary isn't too far off - but 43%? That's nearly half feminist! Not surprising though, Canadian culture and public education has been distinctly feminist for many years now. I was raised to be a feminist without knowing it.
In her book The Feminist Mistake Mary Kassian sums up the apparent discrepancy between how we think, like feminists and what we claim to be, not feminist:
"Feminists are becoming difficult to identify, not because they do not exist, but because their philosophy is almost unidentifiable as feminist, for it is virtually indistinguishable from the mainstream...Feminism as a popular movement seems in decline only because it has been so wildly effective."
She goes on to quote Danielle Crittenden, who interviewed young women across eastern Canada and the north-eastern United States seeking to find out why they seemed to reject feminism:
"The women I interviewed had neither adopted nor rejected feminism. Rather, it had seeped into their minds like intravenous saline in the arm of an unconscious patient. They were feminists without even knowing it."
