Who wants to take part in a little experiment for me?
I want to see how people measure up to the Kinsey scale, it’s a rating for sexuality.
Fill in these (okay maybe somewhat weird) questions and add your result?
X nonsexual *<*
what a surprise
2 Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual.
No surprise here.
0 Exclusively Heterosexual
I got an F. Possibly because I am asexual but haven’t always been, and I still find people aesthetically hot.
5Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual.
Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual.
X – Nonsexual
i’m gonna CRY
3: Equally heterosexual and homosexual.
X – Nonsexual
F – The test failed to match you to a Kinsey Type profile. Either you answered some questions wrong, or you are a very unusual person.
3 Equally heterosexual and homosexual.
2 Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual. Hmmmm.
I’d be more surprised if the test had managed to categorize me, given that I can’t even categorize me. *g* Transgender man bordering on genderfluid, mostly asexual (demisexual or gray-ace), romantically/sometimes-sexually into men to the point that when I need a single word I identify as gay, but enough into women romantically that I can’t swear that’ll never overlap with the demisexuality, even though my experiences with sexual attraction have always been with men.
(I’m so ace, I bought an asexuality ring even though I didn’t know about them at the time and can never be bothered to wear jewellery that doesn’t have some purpose or meaning. (Okay, so that was probably bad impulse control in the face of cheap shinies rather than some subconscious psychic link.))
It didn’t complain of contradiction when I answered “true” to both “I can’t decide which I find more attractive” and “I find women more attractive than men”. (I can’t even decide whether I can’t decide.) Why those are even both there, I don’t know.
Why is it relevant whether I’m submissive? I was tempted for a moment to go through all the permutations to see if there’s any combination where the answer changes depending on submissiveness, but then I realised there’s 2^13 combinations (if I figured right) and that’s way too much work for a whim. (It did not change with the combination I had.)
