Does a pony tail count??

__I shower everyday.

Nope, it dries my skin out.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Yes, but that's because I NEVER do anything to it.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

Nope, I'm lucky if I look once.

__I don’t wear makeup.

Truefact.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

False, and contradicts the above question.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

A bit vague don't you think?

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

I'm lucky if I wear clothes, honestly.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I plan on buying more clothes...

__My shoes look feminine.

what???

__My purses look feminine.

How many manly purses are there??

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

No. Just, no.

The lists are just crazy!

But the real kicker?

The true characteristics of a feminine nature are :

Weakness

Submissiveness

Dependency

Tenderness

Fearfulness

!!!! :angry-screaming:

About the only thing on that short list I would consider a good quality would be tenderness. Not because it's feminine but because it's human.

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

Uh, not really sure. I think it's feminine, but I'm sure the fundies don't.

__I shower everyday.

Like you, Inky, it dries my skin out. It all makes my hair fall out in handfuls because I'm allergic to chlorine.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Yup, I don't even use a hair dryer.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

I'm lucky if I look in the mirror even once.

__I don’t wear makeup.

No, no I don't

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

Since I look best without it, then yes.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

Um... Yeah

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

What are these "dresses" you speak of, and is it possible for them to be masculine?

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

No and no. I have feminine clothes and I have no intention of buying or making more of them.

__My shoes look feminine.

They came from the men's section at Zellars and cost me $15, you tell me!

__My purses look feminine.

Not really.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

What am I? Six?

Also

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

Yuppers!

__Walk with a heavy gait.

I walk with a swift, long gait. I'm not a troll stomping my way around here.

__Walk with long strides.

Yup

__Masculine tone in your voice.

Sometimes I do. Sometimes I even use masculine phrases like "suck my c*ck"

__Yell.

Only when I have to.

__Laugh loudly.

Funny things are funny! But if they are funny enough I get this red faced silent laugh going.

__Laugh with mouth wide open.

Who doesn't? I have no intention of tittering to myself behind a fan here.

__Eat noisily.

No, that's gross.

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

I don't break bones, but a firm handshake brings respect.

__Slap men on the back.

I tend to not touch other people.

__Sit with legs apart.

Guilty!

__Give pushy advice.

I give advice, but I don't push it.

__Demand your way.

When I'm the one for whom the "way" is going to most effect then yes I do. I have the right to stand up for my own best interest when the situation warrants it.

__Have unyielding opinions.

I have this strange, unyielding opinion that women are humans and deserve to be treated as such. Silly, unfeminine me.

__Critical in conversation.

Critical in the sense that I call people stupid when they are being stupid? Or critical in the sense that I don't take what people say at face value and expect them to support their side of things? Because the first one, no. The second one, yes.

__Harsh facial expressions.

:evil:

This one made me laugh because I got my hair cut so that I wouldn't have to mess with it.

OK, I'll play.

Femininty Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

I brush it in the morning. Is that "style"?

__I shower everyday.

Every other day.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Yep.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

No, it's straight and rarely does the unexpected, but I do look in the mirror several times a day to see if I have a zit that needs popping or chin hairs that need plucking. You know how it is.

__I don’t wear makeup.

Yep

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

I last bought makeup in 2001 for my brother's wedding. I can't find it now.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

No, I don't. Well, I do have a pair of old underwear of my husband's that I wear now and then because it's comfy. I wear jeans and such but they're nice and tight to make it obvious that I am a woman :)

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

Often in the summer because sweaty crotch gives me yeast infections.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I can't sew but I do plan to buy replacement clothes when the ones I have wear out.

__My shoes look feminine.

I have doublewide feet. I'm lucky if I can find ANYTHING to fit and dainty stuff is right out. I do like wearing black leather boots, though.

__My purses look feminine.

I have one purse. It has a lot of pockets, so I guess it's feminine?

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Only when my 7-yo forces me to play dress-up with her.

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

I wear a ponytail and occasionally pigtails or 2 braids

__I shower everyday.

Nope... sorry. I don't see the need since most of my time is sitting on my rear doing jack squat

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Yep. Thanks, Pantene! :P

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

No need to fix a ponytail

__I don’t wear makeup.

Neither do I. ;)

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

n/a

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

What are "masculine-type" clothes? I do own one pair of jeans, which I am wearing now and they are definitely not masculine. They are shaped in a very feminine manner, if ya get what I mean

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

When I manage to wear something besides my undies, yes.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I already have feminine clothes.

__My shoes look feminine.

Unisex Birkenstocks clogs are feminine right?

__My purses look feminine.

It's brown leather, teardrop-shaped, with brass loops.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Yes on the scarves, no on the ribbons and lace-trimmed items. My hair is too slippery for ribbons and they'd just fall right off.

Femininty Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

I think so. I mean, I wear it in a few ways: pony tail, half up, down, the style that's not really a half pony but involves clipping some of the hair in the front back, low side pony etc.

__I shower everyday.

80-90% of the time yep. I feel gross if I don't. Even if I don't smell it feels like my face/hair is oily.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Yes, I take fairly good care of it in my opinion.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

Yes, out of vain neurotic tendencies more than anything. I carry a mirror in my purse for lipstick and hair retouches.

__I don’t wear makeup.

I do wear it

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

No, I wear it because I like how it makes me look. I wear extra if it's a special event. I like to look glamorous.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

I don't know? I mean I don't walk around in overalls but I do wear pants 95% of the time. Though I don't consider pants masculine.

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

I don't often wear dresses (more because of my limited footwear options than anything else).

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

Make? Please. Buy? There's always room for more clothes :)

__My shoes look feminine.

No. I have to wear running shoes because of my braces. I have pink DCs atm.

__My purses look feminine.

Yep. My last one was purple leather (Guess) with silver hardware. This one is a Coach bag in blue leather. I can't remember which collection.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

I wear scarves in winter. I loathe the year round scarf thing that is trending. I do have some shirts with lace overlay or sleeves. I also have headbands with ribbons, lace, feathers etc. Also fanscinators.

Femininty Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

It's short but not a style that any man would be caught dead with. So, I consider it feminine, but I suppose a fundie would not.

__I shower everyday.

Yes, but that's mostly because I smell horrible when I don't. I don't suppose that's a feminine trait. Only on question number 2 and I've already failed.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

I used to have awesome hair and then I got pregnant. The hormones did a number on it. I had to comb the planet for a shampoo that worked after I delivered. I finally found one that works ok, but my hair just hasn't been the same.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

Nope. I have an infant to care for, a house to clean, and a full time job. I don't have time to primp in front of a mirror all day long.

__I don’t wear makeup.

Yes.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

I rarely wear makeup. I think its a waste of time and money.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

I have to wear a uniform of sorts (pants and polo shirt with the company's name on it) to work. Everyone wears the same outfit, both men and women. So, yeah, I guess I wear the same outfits as men. Although, my pants are cut for a woman's figure, so I guess I also do not. I'm of the opinion that this question is stupid.

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

I avoid dresses whenever I can. They're not practical when you're chasing a 10 month old around the house.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I once made a pair of shorts for my home ec class. I got a C on the project. I don't think I'll be making clothes anytime soon.

__My shoes look feminine.

I usually wear cross trainers and they pretty much look the same regardless of the gender they're geared toward. I do have a kick ass pair of hooker boots though. Does that count?

__My purses look feminine.

I wasn't aware they made purses for men.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Only if a sick and cruel person dressed up my dead carcas in them.

Oh yay a quiz!

according to these lists, I am 66% feminine. And also 50% masculine. So I'm pretty that makes me much an awesome superhuman. So .... suck it, Miss-If-You're-Not-Like-Me-You're-Not-A-REAL-Woman. Oh no, did that just make my masculine quotient rise? Oopsie, silly me. I'm just a poor female who knows no better!

My turn!

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

Well, it is pretty long and I almost always wear it down, so that probably counts.

__I shower everyday.

Most of the time, yes. I hate feeling sweaty or dirty.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

I think it does.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

Sometimes I brush my hair before I go out. And why all the questions about hair, anyway?

__I don’t wear makeup.

Actually, I do.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

Why would I put on more makeup than I need? That would be silly.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

Well, I buy my clothes in the women's department, so yes.

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

Usually I only wear dresses to church. But sometimes I keep wearing them when I get home after church. Does that count?

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

As Inky said, I do plan to buy new clothes at sometime in the future.

__My shoes look feminine.

Sorry, I like my shoes to be comfy and weather-proof. They probably look gender-neutral at best. Although my new Converse are purple, which is usually a "feminine" color.

__My purses look feminine.

Well, purses are generally feminine, but mine right now is just a plain brown cross body, so not especially.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Sometimes I wear scarves when it's cold out.

Also

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

What does this even mean? I use my hands for whatever the hell I need to use them for.

__Walk with a heavy gait.

I don't even know. I just walk quickly to get where I'm going.

__Walk with long strides.

Well, I'm not very tall, so probably not.

__Masculine tone in your voice.

I doubt it, since I sing soprano.

__Yell.

Not very often.

__Laugh loudly.

All the time.

__Laugh with mouth wide open.

That too. :lol:

__Eat noisily.

Only if I'm alone in my apartment with no one to hear me.

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

No.

__Slap men on the back.

No. I don't slap women on the back either.

__Sit with legs apart.

Sometimes, if I'm wearing jeans.

__Give pushy advice.

I don't give a lot of advice to begin with. I prefer to stay out of other people's lives.

__Demand your way.

No. I'm not five.

__Have unyielding opinions.

I don't understand this one. I have opinions. Sometimes they change. Sometimes they don't.

__Critical in conversation.

Critical of the people I'm conversing with? No. Critical of say, the government? Sure.

__Harsh facial expressions.

Well, I have this one unfortunate photo where I'm making this awful stony face a la the 1860's, but I'm usually smiling or laughing, so no.

Do you make the following mistakes?

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

__Masculine tone in your voice.

__Eat noisily.

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

Only when it directly effects me

__Have unyielding opinions.

I have opinions (is that bad?)

As in realistic and honest yeah but I try not to be a jerk

Oh goody, these are fun! :D

Femininty Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

It's past my shoulders...other than that, as someone else said, I brush it. Um, if I remember.

__I shower everyday.

No. Am kittycat in woman's body--do not like getting wet (unless I'm going swimming!!! Wheeee!). Do, however, suck it up and shower every other day.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

I suppose. The only hair I've seen that really has shine is in shampoo commercials, so...

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

*snort* No.

__I don’t wear makeup.

Trufax. Not very often, anyway.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

On the rare occasions that I do wear makeup, this is what I go for. However, I tend to look like I'm wearing too much if I so much as put eyeliner on.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

This one's tough. I usually wear yoga pants and a t-shirt or tank top. That's when I bother to get dressed. I really feel that pants are overrated. Also, my husband's sweatpants and horridly ugly gray sweater make the BEST cozy jammies! And when I was skinny, I bought men's jeans because they fit me better.

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

Nooo...none of my dresses fit me.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I do have some feminine clothes, thanks to my shopping trip to Ross when I was in Kalispell. Now I have shirts with ruffles (not too fussy, but cute) around the sleeves or chest.

__My shoes look feminine.

Nooo...the ones I've been wearing around all summer are sandals from the men's department at Wal-Mart.

__My purses look feminine.

What is this "purse" of which you speak? You mean the cloth shopping bag I've been throwing everything in? No? (Okay, I have a purse, but I don't use it much anymore. xDreamerx, I think I know the purple leather Guess purse you're speaking of, and I loooooove it! I saw it in Kalispell. But I'm way too cheap for that sort of thing).

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Nooo...cause I'm not 3 or, y'know, 92. I sometimes wear scarves in the middle of winter...but usually not. But I suspect you're not talking about that. I like ribbons, but I wouldn't have the first clue what to do with them. And lace? I hate lace.

The goal is to have a striking contrast between yourself and men. An overall impression of femininity.

--Well, with my gargantuan boobalas, I don't think there's any danger of my being mistaken for a man. ;)

Do you make the following mistakes?

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

I don't think so...?

__Walk with a heavy gait.

Yes. My husband says I stomp everywhere.

__Walk with long strides.

I don't think so, because I can never keep up with anyone.

__Masculine tone in your voice.

No. When I hear a recording of my voice, I think I sound like a little girl. And I'm not doing it on purpose!

__Yell.

THE FREAKIN' CAT NEVER SHUTS UP, OKAY!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!! *mumbles*little bastard*mumbles* :evil:

__Laugh loudly.

Yes! Why not!? :lol:

__Laugh with mouth wide open.

Hmmm, I really don't know. I'll have to pay attention. Usually I'm too busy grabbing my inhaler, because laughing hard seems to give me an asthma attack.

__Eat noisily.

I don't think so...but sometimes my husband makes fun of me with munching noises, so maybe I do. :oops:

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

Noooo! I don't like shaking hands and I can't help but start to pull away as soon as they grab mine.

__Slap men on the back.

I try not to go around slapping people...?

__Sit with legs apart.

Sometimes. Is comfy.

__Give pushy advice.

Yes. I am pushy.

__Demand your way.

Yes. I'm quite demanding. I also generally must have my own way (I told you, I'm a kittycat trapped in a woman's body!). I'm still annoyed that when we built my bat house, my husband put the mesh on upside down from the way I wanted to put it. Although I must admit it looks better.

__Have unyielding opinions.

About certain things, yes (like evolution happened, deal with it!).

__Critical in conversation.

Sometimes...

__Harsh facial expressions.

I don't think so...

The true characteristics of a feminine nature are :

Weakness--I am kind of a wimp physically.

Submissiveness--*snort* No.

Dependency--Well, I don't have a job, so one could say that. However, I also have a large chunk of money stashed away from selling my condo when I got married, so I think I'd get by if I had to.

Tenderness--Depends. I'm kind of cranky and impatient, so while I have the capability, generally I'm too crabby.

Fearfulness--Of spiders (or most any bug, really), the dark (ghosties! :shock: ), mould, and car accidents, yes.

Ooh, a survey, fun!

Femininty Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

It's elbow length, with bangs, and color treated. So I would say yes, unless I'm David Coverdale. I frequently pull it back in a ponytail, though.

__I shower everyday.

Generally every other day, unless I work out or do something else that gets me sweaty and/or dirty.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Yes- at the risk of sounding prideful, I do have pretty good hair. :)

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

A few times a day but not several, and not so much to fix my hair as to make sure there's nothing in my teeth, check for stray chin hairs, etc.

__I don’t wear makeup.

I love makeup. But I go without most of the time during the summer, unless I'm going out. I tend to wear it more often during the winter.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

I love experimenting with colors and different looks, I run the gamut from none at all to neutral smoky eyes to full-on drag queen makeup.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

I wear jeans, if that's what this means. But, you know, GIRL jeans. Most of the guys I know wear cargo pants instead of jeans anymore, anyway. I wear t-shirts too, but *somehow* manage not to be mistaken for a man in them. :D

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

I do wear skirts a lot, especially during the summer. Dresses, not as much- usually only when I'm dressing up for something.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I do have feminine clothes, AND plan to buy or make more.

__My shoes look feminine.

I do love cute shoes. Man, I'm more girly than I thought! I sometimes wear cowboy boots or Chuck Taylors, though. And Uggs, I suppose they're not real feminine looking although I never see men wearing them.

__My purses look feminine.

Yes, because they're purses. LOL. I guess some are more ladylike than others, though. My current favorite is a sort of tough-looking leather bag with motorcycle-jacket type styling, but in a bright metallic silver, so.. you tell me?

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Not so much, no. Actually, I do like scarves in the fall, but like those long striped jersey knit numbers, not foofy silk scarves. And some of my cami tops do have a bit of lace trim, but since these fundie bloggers tend to equate "feminine" with "covered up" I think I fail here since I usually wear these camis as tops.

Correct, I don't wear makeup everyday.

I generally only wear makeup at special events, so I suppose yes.

Femininty Check List

Um, is it supposed to display greater femininity by misspelling "femininity"? If so, count me out!

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

Does a short, jaw-length bob count? It's the only way to keep it from lying flat and looking greasy-icky in summer.

__I shower everyday.

If I'm going out in public and have to look presentable, yes. If I'm staying in, or if I'm just running to the laundromat or to the corner store, not usually unless I'm really grubby or sweaty.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Sometimes. It depends upon how much crap I put in it and how much I've abused it.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

No. Maybe once a day, if that.

__I don’t wear makeup.

True most of the time. But if I'm going to work, a job interview, or somewhere where I dress up, I wear it.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

I usually probably don't wear enough.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

Noooo! Not if you consider T-shirts or sweatshirts and jeans or capri pants masculine. I live in those! At work, it depends upon whether you consider slacks and nice tops or sweaters feminine.

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

No, never! Unless I wore a dress out somewhere (to work or wherever) and haven't gotten around to changing into my grubbies.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

Buy, if I need to. Make them? I can barely stitch a straight line.

__My shoes look feminine.

Some of them do.

__My purses look feminine.

Some of them do.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Scarves, only when it's cold and only with a coat. No and no to the others, unless I'm wearing a certain headband.

The goal is to have a striking contrast between yourself and men. An overall impression of femininity.

I occasionally wear jewelry and I have boobs (not proportionally big) and a big fat butt. That'll have to suffice.

Do you make the following mistakes?

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

Yes. Sometimes you just have to.

__Walk with a heavy gait.

Sometimes.

__Walk with long strides.

Not overly. My height's in my torso and my legs aren't very long.

__Masculine tone in your voice.

No, don't think so.

__Yell.

Too often!

__Laugh loudly.

Yes! Sometimes it's the most appropriate reaction!

__Laugh with mouth wide open.

Yes! Like I'm not supposed to if something's funny enough?

__Eat noisily.

I try not to!

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

I try to emulate the person shaking hands with me.

__Slap men on the back.

Only if they're choking and I'm not in a position to do the Heimlich maneuver.

__Sit with legs apart.

I try not to. But sometimes it happens.

__Give pushy advice.

Not generally. Not my style.

__Demand your way.

Not often enough!

__Have unyielding opinions.

Sometimes you have to.

__Critical in conversation.

Occasionally.

__Harsh facial expressions.

I've made more than my share!

The true characteristics of a feminine nature are :

Weakness

Submissiveness

Dependency

Tenderness

Fearfulness

Except for tenderness, which IMO can be a good thing, BULLSHIT! I say those are the true characteristics of a WIMPY nature. Bad flashbacks to my mother and 6th grade teacher telling me what a lady is like! :x

What about the single mother raising her kids and working two jobs to keep her family fed, housed, and clothed? Or Dara Torres winning Olympic swimming medals in her 40's? Or the mother animal caring for her babies and protecting them against attackers? Caring, strong, determined. Now there's TRUE femininity.

I wear my hair in a feminine style

Um, it's long... too long. Does that count?

I shower everyday.

No, usually every other day, unless I'm sweaty and smelly from exercise.

My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Depends on the lighting. It doesn't look shiny in my bathroom mirror.

I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

I look in the mirror every time I wash my hands (which is a lot), but not to check my hair.

I don’t wear makeup.

I wear it on special occasions.

I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

I've only worn "a lot" of makeup once, on my wedding day.

I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

Normal people would consider most of my clothes feminine.

I wear feminine dresses at home.

Not often.

I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I already have feminine clothes, by non-fundie standards.

My shoes look feminine.

Most men wouldn't wear running shoes with pink trim, so sure they do.

My purses look feminine.

What is a masculine purse?

I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Sometimes. I wore a lace-trimmed top yesterday, matter of fact.

Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

I don't really know what this means.

Walk with a heavy gait.

No, I hardly make a sound when I walk.

Walk with long strides.

Not really. I have short legs relative to my height.

Masculine tone in your voice.

My voice is pretty quiet, but it's not high pitched.

Yell.

Not often these days, but I come from a family of yellers.

Laugh loudly.

Yes--the funnier something is, the louder I laugh.

Laugh with mouth wide open.

Probably.

Eat noisily.

I don't think so.

Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

A relatively firm grasp.

Slap men on the back.

I can't even imagine doing this.

Sit with legs apart.

Sometimes--when I'm wearing pants.

Give pushy advice.

Not as much as I used to.

Demand your way.

When I have to, I do.

Have unyielding opinions.

Yep.

Critical in conversation.

Of the person I'm talking with? Not very often.

Harsh facial expressions.

I hope not, but I bet I sometimes do.

I guess I should check for a wang, seeing as I'm not perfectly feminine at every moment.

I look like a Valkyrie run to fat and I'm supposed to pretend to be this tiny, little, weak, helpless woman?

Wear feminine shoes and use dainty finger movements while pushing a fully loaded stroller down a snowy sidewalk at 10 above zero?

Deliberately choose a hairstyle that will have me dashing to the mirror all day long--while cooking and cleaning and looking after 3 active kids and a cat that likes leaving bloody vole bits for me to pick up?

Do I just not do laundry when my husband isn't home to kill the spiders that get into the basement? Is he supposed to go rushing down there as soon as he comes home in order to kill spiders, so that his girls can have clean socks? Why can't I deal with it?

There is a bear in our neighborhood--a sow with two cubs. She is camping on the mountainside above the highest houses, sleeping all day and coming into people's yards to pick berries at night. She may be outside my window right now. Should DH stay up all night to hold the hand of his poor weak trembling wife or am I just going to shut this off and go to bed?

Femininty Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

I've got soft, natural curls, so it would probably get the fundie stamp of approval.

__I shower everyday.

For the most part, yeah.

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

Yep.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

My hair doesn't really need fixing throughout the day, so no.

__I don’t wear makeup.

Only when I go out.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

I only regularly wear mascara and lip gloss.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

Define masculine. I don't know of many dudes who'd want to wear my clothes.

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

Sometimes, sure. Most of the time, I dress for comfort when I'm hanging around the house, though.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I have feminine clothes, so this question is N/A.

__My shoes look feminine.

I'd say so, yeah. Again, I don't know of many dudes who'd feel comfortable wearing even my sneakers.

__My purses look feminine.

Uh, yeah. I don't exactly carry a man-purse.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

I love wearing scarves in the winter, but ribbons and lace? Considering the fact that I don't dress like a prairie muffin, the answer is no.

The goal is to have a striking contrast between yourself and men. An overall impression of femininity.

Uh, okay. Yeah, I don't know of anyone who'd ever mistake me for a guy.

Do you make the following mistakes?

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

Yes. I move my hands for emphasis.

__Walk with a heavy gait.

No.

__Walk with long strides.

No. I'm not particularly tall, and I walk with short, quick strides.

__Masculine tone in your voice.

Nope. People always tell me that I sound like a teenager. I wish I had a lower, raspier voice, though. Not too low, mind you, but I wouldn't complain if I sounded like, say, Adele.

__Yell.

Sometimes.

__Laugh loudly.

Hell yes!

__Laugh with mouth wide open.

I mean, I don't open my mouth super-wide, but yeah, you generally have to open your mouth to laugh.

__Eat noisily.

No.

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

No. I'd say I've got an average grasp. (That's what he said.)

__Slap men on the back.

Why the hell would I do that?

__Sit with legs apart.

No, not really. I also don't stand with my legs far apart because I'm not Doug Phillips.

__Give pushy advice.

Honestly? I probably do (sometimes, anyway).

__Demand your way.

Depends on the situation.

__Have unyielding opinions.

Depends. I try to be pretty open-minded with a lot of things, but I'm also pretty opinionated. What? That's a bad thing now?

__Critical in conversation.

Sometimes.

__Harsh facial expressions.

O.o

Shit, absolutely no point me doing either quiz. I shave my head and wear men's clothes. The only ones I don't do on the second part are eat noisily, constantly demand my own way or slap peop...oh actually I do do that...

However I am in no doubt I am female. Like another poster says, the boobs and vag clue one in.

Oooh procrastination! Looks like fun!!!

Don't think I'm fundie-approved...

Femininity (I fixed it for you) Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

Um, well it's long, parts are waist-length, and often I'm too lazy to put it up or even brush it, or I might do braids or twists into a bun or something especially if it's wet or a bit greasy. Messy buns/ponytails probably most common. Like right now. Good for sports you know. Oh, and it tends to be anywhere from decently lightly curled/significantly waved to a poofy almost-straight, so I guess on the good curl/wave days it's pretty 'feminine'?

__I shower everyday.

Every other day on average, more often when I'm doing lots of sports or need to look especially presentable or it's really hot, less often during paper-writing time (that's right, I'm studying at eeebil liberal university!) and any other time I'm not going very far from home

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

It's really shiny right now, but not in a good way. I'm showering as soon as I get back from running. Still, it tends to look pretty healthy despite being frizzy.

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

The mirror? To fix hair I couldn't be bothered brushing to begin with? You're silly!

__I don’t wear makeup.

True story.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

On special occasions, yes.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

FALSE! I steal my brother's and my boyfriend's cast-offs, and I'm wearing unisex sweatpants right now. I love running in knee-length masculine shorts - they have POCKETS! BIG ones!

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

Sometimes, depends on the weather. Might also stay in pjs all day. Might wear boys' clothes. I like variety. Dresses to church, generally, and might stay in it all day, but might also change into "playclothes" like when I was little.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

I do have some feminine clothes. I would love to make a dirndl. Not in the habit of making clothes other than knitting hats/scarves or cutting off jeans so I have fabric to patch the holes with, and so that I have more capris and *gasp* shorts! Short jean shorts!

__My shoes look feminine.

Ummm...my running shoes look exactly like the men's Asics, just smaller. My pumas were from the kid's section, not sure if they're especially feminine. I guess my flip-flops and dress-shoes are pretty "feminine".

__My purses look feminine.

...are there are lot of man-bags lying around? I hardly ever use a purse, I like pockets, but I guess they're feminine.

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Scarves keep me warm in winter. Ribbons I'll put in my hair for team spirit sometimes or at competitions. Lace? Only if it's not the itchy kind.

Mistakes list:

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

Totally, I coach gymnastics. Don't think the kids want to be spotted in a loose manner, that would result in an injury.

__Walk with a heavy gait.

Nah, I'm a dainty little light-footed fairy most of the time. Unless I'm angry or in heavy boots.

__Walk with long strides.

Absolutely. Short legs, but I'm flexible (and not shy of doing splits, such a wanton harlot!) and it's easier to open my stride than take more/faster steps to speed up.

__Masculine tone in your voice.

Well, I sing soprano 1, but maybe after a bad cough my voice sounds lower...but I don't have a sweet little babytalk voice most of the time either, does that make me masculine?

__Yell.

I try not to.

__Laugh loudly.

All the time. "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter" (Nicolas Chamfort)

__Laugh with mouth wide open.

That's the best kind!

__Eat noisily.

Um no, I believe it's polite not to do so.

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

What's "overly" firm? I hear I have a good firm grasp. It's bad enough I look like a kid, do you really think I want future employers to see me as young and weak too?

__Slap men on the back.

If you mean what I think you mean, then yes I suppose. I'll also tickle men.

__Sit with legs apart.

Even in a skirt! Sometimes I'll sit in a straddle :o But I'll wear shorts under a skirt, or else otherwise make sure I'm not flashing anyone my knickers.

__Give pushy advice.

Not "pushy" advice, no.

__Demand your way.

Am I a toddler? Not demand, no. Request in a reasonable adult discussion? Sure, but open to compromise.

__Have unyielding opinions.

Hmmm, depends on the subject. Generally pretty open, but I do have convictions I'll stick to.

__Critical in conversation.

Well if I don't agree with something I sure won't hide it, but I'll go about it tactfully and respectfully.

__Harsh facial expressions.

Absolutely when warranted.

The true characteristics of a feminine nature are :

Weakness - I fail, I've beaten boys over twice my size in arm-wrestling, mwahahaha!

Submissiveness - my boyfriend dislikes it if I don't act his equal.

Dependency - partially financially dependent on my parents still, working on that.

Tenderness - men should be tender too.

Fearfulness - I've got the odd fear like any other human, but I'm sure not "fearful". Ridiculous.

Femininty Check List

__I wear my hair in a feminine style

Yep, nice updo

__I shower everyday.

Only when I'm stinky

__My hair looks healthy, it has shine.

My hair is my best asset. :D

__I look in the mirror several times a day, to see if hair needs fixing.

Nah

__I don’t wear makeup.

True.

__I only wear enough makeup to look my best.

Nope.

__I don’t wear masculine type clothes.

True

__I wear feminine dresses at home.

Well, yeah. I only wear dresses anyway.

__I don’t have feminine clothes, but plan to buy or make them.

n/a

__My shoes look feminine.

er, I'm usually either wearing flipflops or clodhoppers. I wouldn't wear heels if you put a gun to my head.

__My purses look feminine.

My purse looks like a mini leather briefcase that's about 30 years old

__I wear scarves or ribbons and lace trimmed items.

Meh. I have three boys. That stuff would get destroyed in no time flat. Denim frumpers are much more practical. :lol:

__Use your hands in a brusk, firm manner.

Definitely

__Walk with a heavy gait.

Probably, I'm fat.

One thing is for certain--when I come thundering down the stairs, everybody in the vicinity knows it's me.

__Walk with long strides.

Naw. I like to stroll.

__Masculine tone in your voice.

I don't even know what this means. ???

__Yell.

Sometimes

__Laugh loudly.

When the situation calls for it.

__Laugh with mouth wide open.

No, because my teeth are oogly.

__Eat noisily.

Pet peeve, so no.

__Shake hands with an overly firm grasp.

?

__Slap men on the back.

Nah

__Sit with legs apart.

Sometimes. Nice long skirts solve the problem of anything possibly showing. :D

__Give pushy advice.

No.

__Demand your way.

Demand, no.

__Have unyielding opinions.

Sometimes.

__Critical in conversation.

No. I really hate being the object of someone else's critical nature, so I refuse to be that way myself.

__Harsh facial expressions.

Not generally. But I don't keep a mirror at hand to check my facial expressions, so I guess I don't really know.

Weakness -I've birthed three boys and wrangle them daily. I work hard at home, and when I had outside jobs they involved physical exertion of varying degrees. I'm not weak.

Submissiveness - Although we have a technically complementarian marriage, the Biblical truth is that both spouses are to be submitted to God, and submitted to each other. And submission is a voluntary laying down of self-centeredness. It is not being a "Yes Man" or a grovelling puppy.

Dependency - Hubby and I depend on each other.

Tenderness - not a problem for me.

Fearfulness - Cultivating a state of fearfulness? I don't think so.

Whew. That was fun!

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!
