About This Quiz

Most of the time, being a woman basically IS a game of "would you rather." Would you rather be a sweet doormat who gets ignored and passed over for promotion because someone that emotional isn't leadership material, or a strident, unlikable ball-breaker who needs to smile more and couldn't possibly be trusted to run the department because she's just not warm enough? Would you rather be a plain Jane who needs to make a bit more effort, or a skanky attention-seeker who deserves whatever horrible thing is coming to her? Would you rather be a frigid bore who needs to stop being so uptight, or a gullible and promiscuous twit who no good man will ever want? The list goes on and on.

This quiz is not that type of "would you rather." This is the quiz that offers a break from that. We're going to give you choices that you actually like, as well as some choices that this ridiculous double-standard-loving world would never give you. We're going to give you some choices that are flat out silly and some that are super gross. Then we're going to use your answers to help you figure out which "you" is the real you, so you can go back to the "would you rather" game of being a woman in today's world and know exactly how you're going to phrase it when you express how, "I don't like any of these choices, so I've come up with a new one." Let's get started!
