I almost feel bad for these people who have such empty lives they find meaning in gender like this. I don't think it's all their own fault either, that now as children they get sat in front of screens and don't interact as much with the actual world, with art and culture, with people in the physical world. So they try to find meaning and identity in the nothingness that is gender.

I've seen so many people swamped by this ideology. I'm young enough to have been just leaving school as it started to take over, and everyone who went down the gender path was exactly like this.

They had no passion for anything beyond the internet/virtual realms. I'm sure it's not the case for everyone, but a lack of engagement and love for things that are material and real seems to be driving such a spike in their numbers. Its the only thing self centred and virtual enough to capture their hearts.

I totally agree. Also, I love how you’ve explained such a huge sociological shift in such a clear, concise way.

I just took the test and got 88.33% masculine, 37.5% feminine; how do I change my username to Dave?

/Spoiler alert, the test is more of an "emotional or logical person" test than a gender test; not even any mention of gender before the answers are revealed. Though, of course, the chart at the end needed to be gendered to be accurate. Gotta love how it's okay for trans people to gender quizzes/personality traits, yet referring to menstruation as a female issue is pointlessly gendering.

I am also a man. Because that test is entirely based on sexist stereotypes. Any human being that isn’t an MRA caricature of a woman would be mostly male.

Ha, I'm a woman but just barely, apparently — 46.67% masculine, 51.25% feminine. Do I have to go all the way to 50% before I can be nonbinary uwu, stunning and brave and so on? /s

(Also, "are you modest?" seems like it would be a trick question)

Oh snap! My gender coordinates are 63.33% masculine, 75% feminine, which places me in the androgynous quadrant. Now I'm beginning to questions everything I ever understood about myself.

/s

Imagine seeing evidence that gender is bullshit, and instead of deciding you'll have no part of it and embrace yourself as a complex human with a personality, you instead go "no this means gender is real".

I like pink, puppies, baseball, and a nice big juicy steak. I must be non-binary!

Yep. If you liked pink, kittens, ballet, and only light meat chicken or turkey, you'd be a girl.

Why are feminine and masculine in the corners? I looked up two of the referenced studies, and the dimensions are supposed to be communality and agency, in reference to oneself and others? I don't really get it. These are studies on gender stereotypes though, and actually quite interesting. One says for example that: "women’s femininity scores have decreased significantly between 1993 and 2012." (Then gone up again with the transgender push?) But I don't think the studies were intended to suggest to children to get chemically sterilized and surgically mutilated.

I'd like to see some examples of extremely undifferentiated people

Well one thing is for sure, whomever invented this test failed math! 🙄

I think I'm finally starting to understand this whole gender thing. Landing in blue, yellow, or white means I should chop my breasts off, right?

If you find that you're too undifferentiated in this economy, you may fail to capture market share and return poor profit to your shareholders. Rebranding may be required.
