What Breed of Liberal Are You?

They're right! Thanks to Suburban Guerilla for the quiz.

How to Win a Fight With a Conservative is the ultimate survival guide for political arguments

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Social Justice Crusader, also known as a rights activist. You believe in equality, fairness, and preventing neo-Confederate conservative troglodytes from rolling back fifty years of civil rights gains.

I got this, and Gods help me, I'm not sure how:

Your Liberal Breed: Reality-Based Intellectualist

You are a Reality-Based Intellectualist, also known as the liberal elite. You are a proud member of what’s known as the reality-based community, where science, reason, and non-Jesus-based thought reign supreme.

I got the same as CrackerLilo, and again, I'm not sure how that happened.

I mean, I'm a freakin' Christian FFS!

Then again, it doesn't really apply to me, because I'm not a "liberal", I'm an out-and-out commie.

TBH I found it odd the divisions that the quiz chose to make between different "breeds" of "liberal" - I mean, surely a coherent and compassionate platform covers many of those issues equally!

But maybe a person who thinks that way would automatically be a "Reality-Based Intellectualist"?

That thing's pretty good!
You are a Peace Patroller, also known as an anti-war liberal or neo-hippie. I thought I was a Libertarian but Peace Patroller is ok.

I'm a reality-based intellectualist, too. But that makes perfect sense to me.

I'm in CrackerLilo's gang of Reality-Based Intellectualists. I'm dabbing a tear here because it's the first time this West Virginia gal has ever been called "elite". One small step for this woman; one giant leap for hillbilly kind.

Hmm, it says I'm a Social Justice Crusader, too, although I can't say as I've ever actually crusaded for anything.

"Reality-Based Intellectualist"

Well, spank my cracker ass and call me a secularist, I'm one of the librul elite!

Jenny said...

I'm a social justice liberal too!

Rachel said...

I, too, got Reality-Based Intellecturalist. Methinks it had something to do with the fact that I chose Darwin as the book to take with me to the recolonization of the world. So I can't believe in Darwin and Jesus, too? I can't believe Jesus's ancestor's were monkeys?

SnowdropExplodes said...

Rachel: haven't you read Matthew and Luke? They list all of Jesus' ancestors (well, all the male ones anyway...)

Never mind that they can barely agree on any two names in the whole list after King David (they even disagree on who was Joseph's father (Jesus' grandfather)! ;-)

Oh bugger, it's US liberals not just general liberals of the world. Also, in the first question on bumper stickers, there's no option for "I don't have a car"!

Ah well!

Rootietoot said...

Hahahaa! I got New Left Hipster, and I'm not even a liberal! Woo!

K.C. Jones said...

Peace Patroller here! I was extremely offended by the last question and didn't want to answer it, which I guess proves their point?

The best part of the quiz was that Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was an option on the new civilization! Duh! BTW, DragaonCon is in a couple of weeks-I always attend "Tea with Arthur Dent" (character from the book) and I outnerded the panel! I may have to write more Vogon poetry to prepare!!! (last year there was a Vogon slam poetry contest and it was horribly inspirational...hahaha)

white rabbit said...

I am a peace patroller and neo-hippie apparently.

I've been called worse things!

LarryE said...

I got social justice liberal, too - although when I went back to the quiz and substituted my second choices for where I had that choice to make, I came out as an eco-avenger.

I do admit, though, to having been put off a bit by the apparent attitude at the site that the difference between "liberal" and "conservative" is the same as between Democrat and Republican - and whereas the latter in each pair might equate, the former don't.

Reality-Based Intellectualist
This is SO me, lol. Although on questions 1 and 2 I couldn't make my mind up, lol. And I SO would have bought ALL of those bumper stickers! lol
