About This Quiz

If you're a dude, you've spent your whole life being judged for your masculinity. You might pretend that you haven't and it is possible that you don't care about being masculine, but the fact of the matter is since the day you were born you've had all sorts of expectations around your masculinity. Of course, all of these things are total stereotypes; it really doesn't matter how masculine you are, but society is sure going to make you think that way.

This kind of thing doesn't go away either; you're going to be proving your masculinity for life. You could be 50 years old when an occasion comes up that you might need to drive a stick. If you can't do it, then you lose your masculine card. You might have a hard time getting a cap off a beer bottle; you might not be able to build a proper campfire; you might not even be able to give a good firm handshake. Hey, we aren't judging, well not much anyway, but each time something like this happens, your masculine score goes down just a little. How stereotypically masculine are you? Take this quiz and find out. You aren't scared, are you?
