    A friend of mine has designed a fantastically fun quiz and Gay Card in support of pride, and I want to help him get the word out. Are you gay enough to carry The Official Gay Card?

    In my friend's words:

    The quiz
    The story
    My commentary (the project as it relates to skating)

    Enjoy!

    Too stereotyped for my taste. Score 28.

    According to this, I'd be straight. Ewwww.

    Maybe I could be the lifter in a male/male Pairs team.

    It doesn't seem like it's going in the right direction.

    92!!! :lol:

    Why I didn't get a 100:

    1. Tiny umbrellas in drinks take up valuable room that could be given to more alcohol :summer:
    2. ALL my underwear is fabulous :drama:

    However, I have had to replace my copy of "The Sound of Music" more times than I care to mention........ :D

    (And I think they meant Provincetown, not Providence! :rofl:)

    Gay-in-training.

    Your flame is dim, but you've got potential. Keep up the gay work.

    No, girlfriend, I'm just too old to be bothered with most of the BS any more. :rofl:

    Back in the day my score would have been MUCH higher.

    Some of these questions are not fair! Question #1 asking if my iPOD has one of those singers in it. I don't have a freaking iPOD!

    48 gay in training! I always lose gay points because I can't stand musicals or musical theatre!

    Actually the issue I have with the quiz is the fact that most of the "questions" are directly lifted from the "you know you are gay when..." email that did the rounds when email jokes first started si it's a pretty lame repackaging of that email. Sorry.

    At least you like Eurovision :D.

    I got a 28, which surprised me since it seemed like I was answering "no" on everything.

    I got 28. As far as I know I'm straight, but at the rate the world keeps changing, who knows? I didn't even know there were options when I was growing up. :lol:

    The test seems geated towards men though. A lot of that stuff would be normal for a straight woman.

    Plus, the gay men I know are mostly scientists, they don't fall into the diva/show bizz category. They are pretty suburban middle class, the only lifestyle difference is the sex of their partner.

    That's why I thought the test was a bit "stereotyped", like most movies/TV shows. Most of my gay friends don't fall into the diva/showbizz category either. Where I live, most gays I know are laborers working in the fields driving tractors or are professionals working as doctors/lawyers/teachers/business owners. We get togther on weekends to play softball/poker/camp and *gasp*drink beer with rock/country music in the backbround. It's not as if all gays run around in heels, drinking umbrella drinks, listening to some lady called Gaga while criticizing everyone's fashion sense. We're all out and proud, but just in a very different styles....I'll skip the card. :D

    The test was fun though.

    72 for me. I'm horrified I scored so low. (The Sound of Music question did me in. If I never hear "So long, farewell" again it will be too soon lol!)

    I've always wanted to borrow 5 girls and 2 boys from the local elementary school, just so they can sing that at the end of one of my cocktail parties. :D

    (And yes, I'll invite their parents as chaperones. After all, how the hell am I supposed to know how much alcohol to give an elementary school student before they get sloppy and forget the lyrics?!?!?)

    Glad to see so many of you are enjoying it! To the detractors: well, can't please everyone. The quiz is meant to simply be fun, and help spread a positive message. If you haven't done so, I encourage you to read the story behind it.

    If you feel so inclined, I'm sure Christopher would be more than open to constructive feedback, to continue to improve the project. His contact info is on the blog.

    Thanks for playing!

    (Oh, and my flame is also dim. :D)
