Plymouth high schoolers get test on masculinity

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 17, 2020

MADISON — The same school that brought its students the “Empathy Quiz,” is now administering a “test on how masculine or feminine your personality is.” 

Juniors in Plymouth High School’s Global Studies class took the “Masculinity/Femininity test, according to parents and students. 

It’s “based on a conception of masculinity/femininity known as Gender Diagnosticity. 

“In this conception, masculinity/femininity is defined by the ways men and women differ, whether due to gender roles, innate factors, or anything else,” the personality test states. 

So, the final score “will be a probability” informing the student how many people with like personalities are “estimated to be male or female.” 

The test comes with a boatload of disclaimers. It does not claim to measure “innate masculinity/femininity.” It’s not a “trans test.” 

“Gender differences are not constant across time and space, and so gender diagnosticity depends on the sample that it is calibrated for,” the test’s creators assert. 

Here are some sample questions. Answers are broken down into Strongly Agree, Disagree, Neither, Agree, and Strongly Agree. 

I cry during movies 

I like to compete and do everything I can to win 

I don’t think much about sex 

I hug my close friends 

I think constantly about sex 

I am fascinated by how machines work 

I like to watch figure skating 

As Empower Wisconsin reported last month, Plymouth High School juniors were asked to take an Empathy Quiz, part of a broader course on “white privilege.”  

That test includes 22 questions related to empathy, and six personal information questions, including inquiries on “gender identity” and students’ “political views.” It also includes a question about their family income. 

“Please provide your best estimate of your annual household income in USD [U.S. dollars] (before taxes),” the quiz instructs.

  • Don’t you just love it? A “masculinity” test designed to emasculate? An “empathy” test designed create dissension? What’s next? A “patriots” test to destroy patriotism? Or was that what this election was about?

  • This kind of “shenanigan’s” might be understood if one reads AG William Barrs speech he gave at Notre Dame in Oct. 2019. That speech and the documentries, “A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing” and “Wolf In Sheeps. Clothing II”, puts what is going on in our society today to destroy it, into perspective and in very understandable terms.

  • If the recount doesn’t give President Trump a lead, then I think the legislature needs to do what the constitution demands and lend their vote for the President. There is no way this election is on the up and up. If we allow the cheaters to win this election they will be so embolden there will never be another fair election in this country. We thought the Russian investigation was bad, Watergate was bad, the Ukeraine investigation was bad, this is the worst thing to ever happen in this country.
