That homophobia test sucks. I thought some of the questions were badly phrased, so I answered "neither agree nor disagree". It gave me a 68% homophobic rating - so judgemental!

Yours In Homophobia

Erik glad you like it.

Dale I wouldn't put too much into it, but I am considered not homophobic which is good to know.
