    The Gaydar test is simple. We'll show you pairs of guys and girls. Just prove you can recognize who's gay. These are real people who use OkCupid. We figured what the hell?

    EDIT: First 10 pairs are women, last 10 are men.

    I got 80%.

    I'm better at recognizing gay women than gay men. I should've been a lesbian. Lol

    I got 65% on my result...

    You personally got 13 of the 20 people correct and were better at recognizing guys than girls. Overall, you guessed better than 42% of all test takers.



    Who knew!

    70% - One guy literally had 'FAG' written on his arm. I think I had the advantage.

    Lol

    I just zone in onto the most obvious signs: girls that look butch or tomboyish, guys who look slender or have feminine poses.

    I got 90%... I have no idea how that happened because I usually have HORRIBLE gaydar.

    Did I start the test wrong? The first 10 were all female pairs, and I just quit. That's not gaydar, that's lezdar or some other crap. icon_mad.gif

    This is so funny, lol. I only see girls on this test. It's just as I suspected, men or males can never have a site that will only be about them; girls, even lesbians, must have the attention of us males and be included in any conversation we have. lol. I grew up with sisters so I know what I'm talking about. I had always suspected that girls were on this site posing as men, but until now it hadn't been totally confirmed. We should be flattered actually that girls will never let just men have a site where they are sharing their true thoughts about sex and life with no girls there; but somehow I am disturbed by this. I guess it's because I fought so hard to keep my sisters and mom out of my room and reality so I could be gay with guys. Buy it's kinda comforting to know that all guys will let females in to their all male world. lol.

    This is no test of gaydar. They probably purposefully pin people who are not stereotypes against each other. They also put up old ass 80s pics and compare them against new pics. Painfully obvious confounding variables makes this experiment worse than poop.

    I usually have poorly calibrated gaydar as well. I scored 80% being able to identify the guys better than the girls. Which is odd, because most of my long time friends are lesbians.

    The last 10 pair are guys. Try again.

    Took it several times and the offerings changed each time. Don't know how large a pool of photos they draw on, but on one run through, I had several chicks waving rainbow flags.

    My best score was 85% and I did better at spotting the gay girls.

    Interesting site too. Just for kicks, I went to the home page to "sign up".
    I had choices.

    I am: Male / Female
    I am: Straight / Gay / Bisexual
    and another choice regarding relationship status.

    What I found interesting was...
    1. If you choose Male / Gay - The avatar changes from a woman to a guy in a suit and you get a "Privacy" choice for your profile not to be seen by "straight" people.
    2. If you choose Male / Straight -The avatar stays a woman, and no privacy choice to not be seen by "gay" or "bisexual" people.
    3. If you choose Male / Bisexual - The avatar stays a woman, and you get a "Privacy" choice for your profile not to be seen by "straight" people.
    4. If you choose Female / Straight - The avatar stays a woman, and no privacy choice to not be seen by "gay" or "bisexual" people.
    5. If you choose Female / Gay or Bisexual - The avatar stays a woman, and you get a "Privacy" choice for your profile not to be seen by "straight" people.

    WTF??? Do they think that the only time it's appropriate to show a male avatar is when the combo is Male / Gay?????

    Aren't straight girls entitled to see a male avatar too? That's what they're looking for, right?

    Is that homophobic or sexist?

    What are your thoughts?

    I actually took this test a couple days ago before I even saw this thread. I scored 80% on both sides. It isn't a gaydar test at all though. It is a test to see if you can tell if people are mtf, cross dressing men, or women. There are a lot of sexual characteristics that can't be easily changed once they appear at puberty. I think most people can identify them pretty easily.

    Admittingly, I sometimes picked the guy I wanted to be gay >.>

    Too bad you can't see which ones were gay and which ones weren't?

    Nope, not until there's a test of all male subjects. And BTW, all the pics I saw were head shots, and of course stills. That's not how I use my gaydar (which is very accurate), relying on the face alone. I listen to the voice, the vocabulary, observe the posture, the walking, use of hands, the attire & accessories, lots of things.

    I got 95%

    Never knew my gaydar was finely tuned.

    I got all the girls right (my lezdar is obviously better).

    Same for me. Lots of things help me figure it out.

    I got a 75%, scoring better with girls than guys. I think if I had full pics I could have done better with the guys icon_biggrin.gif
