Ambivalent Sexism Inventory. I scored a .55 on the "hostile," and a .82 on the "benevolent." I've got a guess why, but I'll hide it so you can take the quiz unspoiled.
I think this is because I answered some of the questions more charitably that they were intended. Like: "Women should be cherished and protected by men." Of course they should! Just as men should be cherished and protected by women! I don't think the question was meant to be taken in that way though.

I got 0.00/0.64. I feel the same about the 'cherished' question. But I didn't score it as high because I thought of gay couples.
