Are you Homophobic? Take the test UPDATED



Cam hates the word homophobia because no one is actually scared of a gay person because they are gay. They may not agree with their lifestyle or understand why they are attracted to the same sex but they are certainly not afraid of them which is what a phobia is.

Of course when Cam expresses that opinion people often assume that he is ” homophobic.” The disorder that Cam, myself and both our now adult children suffer from is pedanticism. We don’t like words that we believe are inaccurate. We do however all share the same sense of humour and Cam always responds to accusations of homophobia with the same statement…

” Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.”

We may not all agree on the meaning of the word homophobic but that is no reason to not take the test.

I scored 9% so it is unlikely that I will be running in terror pursued by a gay man or woman anytime soon.

Take the test here.

  • Ringmaster

    May have wrong link as I ended up with’ are you are vegan?’ Didn’t take test as there is “no bloody way” I’ll give up meat!!

    • metalnwood

      I am an omnivore, is that a subtle hint I might swing both ways?

      Going by ‘ringmaster’ I think you already know :) :)

      • Korau

        Mine said….You got: Omnivore

        You are normal.

        Nice to know someone else thinks I’m normal. Have been called worse.

    • spanishbride

      ooops sorry all fixed now. I decided against the are you vegan quiz as I think we all already know the answer to that question LOL

  • CoNZervative

    Pedanticism alert! “Gay” does not mean “homosexual” – it’s a Scottish band of men in skirts (edit) kilts – the Gay Gordons; OR a sense of light euphoria (which is not a gay nightclub drug)

    • CoNZervative

      This however IS “gay”

      • CoNZervative

        And so we are not accused of being racist: This is English ~and even gayer (the gayest in the village) Morris Dancers (being called Morris is also gay)

        • Korau

          Is a Morris Minor just a little gay?

          • dumbshit

            Well you certainly need “dainty feet”, to drive one!

  • Chris EM

    Must be a very pedantic test, 26%, they reckon I’m homophobic. Can’t wait to tell my gay friends.

    • MaryLou

      Agreed – never had any problems in real life, but this tells me I’m homophobic. I prefer live and let live – if that makes me homophobic so be it!

      • Chris EM

        I think it’s one of those tests where if you don’t tick all the boxes they want you to tick, then you must be against them.

  • Shalice

    I got 12%. Some of the questions don’t have enough answers available – #3 does not have a neutral answer. Needs more “don’t care” type answers.

  • Crowgirl

    I must’ve done something wrong because it took me through to a “sign up” page and hasn’t given me a result, but I’m pretty sure I’m not homophobic.

    I thought homophobia was not about being afraid of gays, but rather not liking them through a fear that oneself might be gay, whilst we’re being pedantic.

    • jonno1

      You need to untick the box on the line highlighted in blue.

      • Crowgirl

        Thanks. I’ve taken it again and even though it says I don’t have a problem with gay people at all, apparently I’m still 4% homophobic. I actually don’t think it’s possible to answer it so you’re 0%.

  • oldmanNZ

    Questions 2 is interesting.

    Two guys holding hands?
    I see this all the time.
    I hold hands with a lot of guys, most are strangers. And some old friends.
    However, as a guy, we must prepare to hold hands.
    If a guy sticks his hand out, i have to hold it for a few seconds.
    Any longer it becomes uncomfortable, too short its disrespect.
    Too soft its wimpy,
    And it must be fully enclose to feel good, if you miss and just grab the fingers its awkward.

    • taurangaruru

      Are you sure you are grabbing fingers?

  • Rick H

    68% homophobic – -ay?
    Some of the questions were hard to answer accurately, though. Not enough different options.

    • Aucky

      Do you advocate public flogging or burning at the stake?

      • rantykiwi

        Why not both, simultaneously?

        • Think of the safety of the flogger, please

  • JEL51

    Darn, I’m not perfect after all !! Apparently I ‘HATE’ gay people.
    Even though I was taken to Church every Sunday as a child, spent years learning I must LOVE everyone, I am now being LABELLED by some Leftist, no doubt, tax-funded piece of elitist’s drivel, telling me I HATE others for choices they make.
    Well in defense let me say this….. I have never HATED anything in my life (apart from boiled cabbage) but as I watch from afar how the LEFT’s influence on the Global stage is threatening civilization as we know it, I am actually learning how to hate and it is NOT those gentle souls like Milo.

  • Damon Mudgway

    I’m gay friendly at 8%. But guys wanting to dress up as women still fails to float my boat.

  • Moonroof

    14% Not interested in being hit on, otherwise not fussed.

  • Kopua Cowboy

    I got as far as question two- Would you feel more comfortable if you saw two men holding hands, or two men holding guns? and quit the test. I’m not submitting myself to this nonsense.

    • Octavian

      I want to know why there isn’t a “I don’t care” option. Because I don’t. So I had to pick not comfortable with either guns or hands.

  • bristol

    Surprise result – 31% Probably Homophobic. Hmmm

    • dumbshit

      Snap, just leave me alone, and I don’t care. Apparently that is 31%.

  • Aylene Price

    Apparently I’m 2% homophobic, which kinda surprised me as I didn’t think I was any% homophobic.

  • rantykiwi

    18%… which is probably a reasonable reflection of things. But the questions are pretty lame – there are far too many sensible answers/reactions missing for it to be more than a chance for a giggle.

    • Jude

      Ditto for me too!

  • Eiselmann

    Some of the questions were loaded , ended up with 31 percent homophobic which is in all honesty probably a fair reflection of my feelings on homosexuality and various topic’s around it.

    The description in the test however is not accurate and again reflects the loaded nature of the test

    ‘You dislike gay people. You are probably homophobic. You would not
    consider being friends with anyone who is openly gay or even slightly
    flamboyant. The picture I chose for this catagory makes you slightly

    –Yeh cause one of my three closet friends who I have known for 30 years just got married to his new husband and I couldn’t be happier for him …I just don’t want to know what goes on in his bedroom , just like I don’t want to now what goes on in any of my friends bedrooms ….that and not wanting to be hit on by a gay man apparently makes me homophobic……so does that mean a gay man who doesn’t want to be hit on by a woman is hetro-phobic?

  • “Cam hates the word homophobia because no one is actually scared of a gay person because they are gay. They may not agree with their lifestyle or understand why they are attracted to the same sex but they are certainly not afraid of them which is what a phobia is.”

    Not true.

    There was a whole generation of people, and some still are so poorly educated elsewhere in the world, that believe that homosexual men are equivalent to pedophiles, that they will sexually assault you (as a man) given a chance. It is that fear that kicked the word off.

    These days most of us aren’t scared of them as we know there are very few gay on non-gay sexual assaults, and gay on children crimes. But the origin of the fear was the same as always – the feat of the unknown.

    Personally, I’m much more scared of a stroppy woman!


  • Nige.

    Oh no. I was more afraid of you when I just thought you were a Twitter expert. Turns out you’re just a normal person.

  • Octavian

    According to this test, I am 19% homophobic or “slightly appalled: You don’t LOVE gay people, but you don’t necessarily hate them either. Maybe you think that gay people should just be more discreet. Or maybe you think it’s okay to be gay– as long as they act straight in public. Either that or you are one of those guys that only likes lesbians. Or one of those girls that thinks emo bois kissing is “oh so hawt”. Which is okay-ish. Both of those things are hot.”

    I’d like to know how one acts straight in public? Serious question…

  • Whitey

    2% homophobic. Not exactly a surprise, but I guess it’s nice that there’s at least one area of life where I’m tolerant.

  • Andrew Gibson

    I stopped reading at the intro, when they asked if I considered myself “tolerant”. That would assume I considered my own lifestyle superior, which I don’t, unlike, say tolerance of left wing sympathisers….;) It makes me wonder if the designers of the questionnaire need to take the test themselves.
