I’m 30% Gay

Channel 4’s Gay-O-Meter is something that I’m sure I’ve done before but have seemingly never blogged about, however Dave blogged it a couple of days ago and so I thought I’d do it again. Here’s my result:

Neil is 30% gay!
Loosen up my straight mate! These days women like a man with some softer edges to grab onto.

Which means I’m mostly straight, as I suspected. Still, it’s 10% more than Dave, and only 10% less than someone who was actually gay. I haven’t yet got Hari to take this as she’s sitting an exam at the moment.


  1. 20% for me. I was scared when it was loading the results. I was like. STOP STOP!

  2. I’m 16% gay (lies I tell you!). “You’re a walking, talking, red-blooded hetero guy. Just way too straight for these modern times mate!”

  3. “I’m 30% Gay”.
    Did you miss a 0 off there Neil?

  4. ..ahem. “Tim is 43% gay. Congratulations. You scored right in den middle and are a happy and well adjusted hetero man”.
    pheewww πŸ™‚

  5. How are you too straight at 30% gay, while it made fun of me for being 23% gay? This test was even more stupid than most Web personality tests (yes, that’s possible). There were so many questions that presented a false dilemma I had to just choose randomly.

  6. Sure, you chose randomly. πŸ˜‰
    No need for an excuse, Rory, no need. You’re with your friends, mate! πŸ™‚

  7. I didn’t choose them all randomly. I expect my leather trousers were the real reason for that 23%. There were questions where neither answer was at all appropriate.

  8. And i Quote;
    “You’re a straight laced girlie girl with just a hint of your butch side sometimes popping out!”
    That sounds about right… however the 40% gay thing is a bit worrying……..

  9. Rich is 23% gay “You’re open minded between the sheets but rarely show your gay side on the streets”
    I’m not sure about the percentage, but the description sums me up pretty well. Now to waste some more time on those other tests…

  10. Well I am 36% gay, news to me. I have had many mail lovers, and a partner for 21 years.
    Maybe I am just a closet breeder?

  11. Woohhh, 60%. Am I the gayest person here?
    “You’re very open minded between the sheets and just as balanced when out on the streets”
    Maybe being bi has something to do with it though…

  12. Not to worry, Muppetette – I’m 73% gay!

  13. Well, I’m not fussed with 23%, but it was made harder by the fact that many of the things in question I couldn’t answer either way.

  14. I see a Cosmo magazine “20 questions” with a formula to calculate your “true percentage”. Party!

  15. im 49% gay what a releif besides im bi

  16. my husband is 36% gay and i am and i am 39 does that make a 75% gay person

  17. Not unless he is your parasitical twin, as far as I know…

  18. I just can’t imagine a woman sharing her boyfriend with a man.

  19. how do u take the test

  20. Looks like it’s time to close comments on this old entry. πŸ˜›
