  1. I’m also a cis man named Tom!

    I am…surprisingly ok with this!

    Also I feel like I nailed all but one of the roommate options so feeling v good about self.


  2. I am Tess! Solid result, though you probably won’t catch me in a dress these days. Probably. That Met gala silk brocade suit though.. 😍

  3. Yessss I have been waiting for this quiz, and I’m so glad it’s written by the only person I trust!!

  4. Sophie. And I do want to be true to myself. I was judging some of her choices last season, but I haven’t seen how she followed up.

  5. Yay, I got my number one pup Finley. I didn’t pick any of the obvious partying, hook up or substance options (I abuse myself in other ways) but still got my sweet lost soul… must be my strong affinity for soccer and Sophie (s1) lol

  6. your quizzes are so much fun that I do all of them, even when I have no idea of the subject matter. I absolutely adored doing it but now I have to watch GenQ to find out more about a cis man named Tom!

  7. Proud to be a Micah. Mentally mulling over which friend I can have a soulmate experience speedrun with over the next two weeks.

  8. I got Micah and suspect it is only due to a shared profession because Micah is simply too sweet to be me. I would also never be as bonkers as he is by professing my love to a woman who had rejected me violently *checks watch*… the literal last time we saw each other.

  9. wait isn’t the cisman named Tom from the OG? He was Jodi’s ASL interpreter who knocked up a transman named Max? Does Jodi come back in S2? Are there two cismen named Tom, one per generation?

  10. I never do quizzes but god Riese I trust you so gave it a whirl. (The MET: Camp options were inspired.) Honored to have selected Sophie “I just want to be true to [my]self.”

  11. I haven’t watched the new seasons and I got Finley.

    For reasons unclear this feels like an insult?

  12. I’ve got Gigi… and I’m happy about it… I think. The L-Word is emotionally confusing, y’all.

  13. I got Tess. 🥰 Though I think I’m more in love with her than want to be her I wouldn’t have wanted any other result.

  14. OH my answer is TESS, and I feel so great . I love this answer and Tess is one of the best caractor I have ever liked before
