what make you a "girl"?


The following is a test that is supposed to determine how 'girly' you are. Being that my score was somewhere around 20 i had to question the validity of this test. I mean, i checked! I'm definitely a girl! This is supposed to determine how much of a girl i am? Apparently genitals don't do a good enough job.

It honestly offends me that someone can decide that small dogs are more feminine' than big dogs. This test encourages stereotypes that are not true of all women, or even most of the women i know! So this of course lead me to my ultimate question:
WHY DO THESE THINGS CONTINUE TO GET CIRCULATED!?

I am 46% Barbie. And to be fair to the test, it does say "barbie" and not "girl." I would definitely agree that "barbie" could be a subspecies of girl, which this quiz accurately identifies.

lol, Kris, you can't really rail at these things being circulated, and then post it!!!

tee hee

kris said...

hmm...good point clansi. i'll think about that next time;)

Linsey, i associated barbie test and 'girly' mainly because when it came to my inbox the title was "look how girly i am"....i probably should have mentioned that. sorry.

jenne said...

funny - i was about to say something along those lines. like, duh kristin! like, this test doesn't measure how girly you are! - just like, how much of an airhead you are!!!

(disclaimer - i don't think lindsey's an airhead. far from it. and i love shoes too!)
