Gender-Abolitionism: The Feminism Test (Quiz Results)

I found this quiz via yourapple. Some of the questions on it are confusingly worded (e.g., "One of the intents of pornography is to objectify women" - does that mean most existing pornography or all possible pornography?), and it should be noted that scoring "40% Socialist" doesn't actually mean that I'm only 40% socialist, but rather that I only consider socialism to be 40% connected to feminism.

But despite these criticisms, I have to post the quiz results because (speaking as cofounder of the abolishgender community!) I'm just so delighted at their inclusion of Gender-Abolitionism.

You scored 100% Gender-Abolitionist, 60% Sexually Liberal, and 40% Socialist
You are the Gender-Liberal. This means that you share qualities with both Liberal Feminists and Gender Abolitionists. Like the Liberal Feminist, you feel political change needs to be done on a small-scale level through legislative change, not necessarily through a massive destruction of class society through the adoption of an extremist socialist stance. You are also very concerned with sexual liberation, and feel that women should be free to do what they please sexually without criticism, just as men should be free to do. However, you differ from the Liberal Feminist culturally, because you see gender as a social construction that needs to be destroyed. Like the Gender Abolitionist, you realize that gender is often perceived as one's identity, when it should only be perceived as a small, insignificant part of that person. We shouldn't be able to say "This person IS a woman". Rather one should say something more akin to "This person HAS the physical traits of a woman". This way, we wouldn't be assuming someone's physical traits are a part of their identity, and we couldn't use this difference to oppress them or categorize them. In short, you advocate extreme cultural change through the destruction of gender roles, but politically you are less extreme, instead focusing on individual or legislative change as opposed to a massive change of ideology.
My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 84% on Gender

You scored higher than 12% on Sexuality

You scored higher than 57% on Class
