Take “this test”:http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/assault/etc/quiz.html honestly and post your score.

bq. FRONTLINE has reproduced this “Wright, Adams, and Bernat Homophobia Scale.” It is not a perfect measure of anti-gay feelings or ideas, and is not a predictor of potential for anti-gay violence.

18 – Your score rates you as “high-grade non-homophobic.”
In his 1996 study of 64 white, male college students, Dr. Henry Adams classed 29 participants as “non-homophobic.” Their mean score was 30.48, however, placing most of the men outside of this sub-group. Dr. Adams reported that he had difficulty finding heterosexual men whose scores ranked them as high-grade non-homophobic.

Hold on a sec.

I’m a little worried this may be too personal. You’ve posted your score, now what if I score “48 – ‘Raging Homophobe'”? I’m not going to post that, and if I or anyone else don’t post, won’t we all wonder why? What if everybody but you scores “2 – ‘Friend of Dorothy'”?

I know we’re mostly all friends here, but would you post “hey everybody, say if you hate gays or not”?

Interesting quiz though — good tool for self reflection.

9 – Your score rates you as “high-grade non-homophobic.”

I had a problem with the question “I enjoy the company of gay people.” This presumes, to me, that gay people always act a certain way in my company. My decision to hang out with someone rests on other things besides sexual preference. And what is the specific company of homosexuals anyway, Two Snaps Up, Inc.?

Eh, I got a 20 – same category as Johno. And I came out against gay marriage and said that I thought that gay rights organizations were unnecessary. So the quiz isn’t as biased as I’d feared.

But, like K the MC said – this is kind of like asking if you like to smother kittens – there’s one “right” answer regardless of your true feelings.
