How big a blouse are you? Take the test

We have already called for David Farrar to hand in his man card. Now we can be certain he lacks the required manliness to claim it back. He has posted his blouse score on Facebook:


Now either he was being overly politically correct in his answers or he lied like a flatfish, because there is no way in hell he would have scores that low. Especially the hostile sexism. If he did then he would be a happily married man and would have been so for ages.

For the record my scores were:  Hostile Sexism Score: 3.82 
Benevolent Sexism Score: 1.09

Apparently all that means is:

Scores on each dimension can vary from 0 to 5, and although there is no fixed point that divides sexist and nonsexist people, higher ASI scores are related to greater degrees of sexism. For example, people with high levels of hostile sexism are more likely than others to hold negative stereotypes about career women, and they express attitudes that are more tolerant of sexual harassment and spousal abuse of women.

In contrast, high scores on benevolent sexism are not related to overt measures of hostility toward women. Nevertheless, benevolent sexism can turn ugly when women venture beyond traditional gender roles. For instance, one study found that benevolent sexists were more likely than others to blame a female victim for being raped after she invited a man into her apartment (presumably because the victim’s behavior violated norms of female chastity).

Sounds like a load of horsehit actually.
