75%… Really appreciated the petty Clarke question, I’m very here for it.
The only ones I knew for sure were #2, 8, 11, 12, 14, and 19.
95%. I, uh, missed the one where you quoted Heather Hogan. ?
That one was v tricky! It could have described so many seemingly duplicitous but actually wonderful & heroic female bisexual Severus Snapes (which should be a category of person now, thank you).
I got a 70%. I am actually really proud of myself and my ability to read context cues, because I have only watched Orphan Black and Supergirl.
80%! Not bad considering I didn’t get to watch TV when I was a kid. The benefits of being a Autostraddle reader obviously. :D
Considering how few of the shows mentioned I’ve ever seen, I’m impressed with my 60%!
35%.It’s worse than my math scores. Do I know anything?
I missed the soap one cause I don’t know about soaps and another one I forgot and then I mixed up piper and Alex cause I erased that show from my memory after they killed Poussey ?
Quiz Grade: D
Some of the ones that I missed, I really shouldn’t have missed.
BTW – I’ll love you for forever for remembering that Susan was bi on “Babylon 5”.
Quiz Grade: D
Pretty damn pleased with myself considering that I guessed on most of them – I knew 2 or 3 for sure. But I absolutely got the LA Law one – that story line made a big impression on baby-bi me watching LA Law in my dorm tv lounge.
Lol I got a C (70%). But it was very enjoyable (and informative, and occasionally salty), so I’m still happy!
My score was:
Quiz Grade: D
I gotta say as someone who hasn’t seen very many of the shows listed I didn’t do that bad.
I got an 85/B which might have set my perfectionist brain ablaze except it’s obviously B for Bisexual soooo it’s all good!
Also I should have remembered that the QAF Mel/Lindsay/Brian triangle was never consumated on screen
I almost said Mel/Sue/Brian, which would have been an interesting trio as well…
They were in somewhat of a relationship, though.
I got a D grade.
Also, I was once challenged by a lesbian at an LGBT networking event for not being queer enough (I know). We were both drunk so I allowed her to subject me to a verbal quiz (I know). I half-jokingly passed all her tests.
Her last question was “favourite L Word character?”
Now, I’ve never watched the L Word, but I knew from the grapevine that Alice was the bisexual character, so I trotted out “Alice, of course.”
She gave me a weird look, but I still left the conversation pleased with myself for proving my gayness.
And now honestly I feel betrayed by Alice.
And still pissed off at that lesbian.
Great quiz though!
Wow. I definitely don’t watch as much TV as you AS folks do. The only ones I really knew about were Rosa from B99 and even though I watched ALL OF TRUE BLOOD (god help me) I couldn’t remember some of the characters so I got that one wrong.
i got 1 wrong, because i don’t know anything about soap operas #crushedit
the alex question is my favorite though for sure. i’m glad that even the overwhelmingly hetero people who write most tv shows recognize that alex is a gay name
I got an E … Good excuse to watch more TV, I need to know more bi characters obviously.
But I have to say I got confused by question 14 because the love triangle in You, Me, Her is between Emma/Izzy/Jack, not Greg ! Greg is the name of the actor playing Jack
Quiz Grade: B
i always took what Alice said as a joke? like i always make ironic biphobic jokes cuz im allowed, so i thought she was too?
