I’m planning to be a big ‘ole queer during Vancouver’s Pride. There’s all kinds of LeatherDyke events I’m attending during August.

So… Stockholm Pride has this nifty thing that asks “How Hetero are you?” based on an analysis of one’s Twitter feed. Quote “the way our fellow humans judge us can be based on the words we use as well as who’s hand we’re holding.”

1% Heteroladykona is 1% HeteroHow hetero are you? Try out any Twitter name and get the real picture. Are we really the words we use? Hope to see you at Stockholm Pride!

Apparently, the words “butch, community, pride, gay, and ass” in my Twitter feed determined my “hetero” percentage. Am I surprised? Not really. Apparently I have “nothing of it in [me]. Nothing at all.” So… that makes me 99% gay/lesbian/queer… something.

Wil Weaton of Star Trek fame is 67%, Anthony Robbins is 79% and The Mayor of Vancouver doesn’t use cliche words and so the the system can’t figure it out.

I was gonna start typing in the queers and sex-positive folk I follow on Twitter but I was skeered. What if they are waaay more hetero than I thought? What then?

Wonder what the 1% in me consists of? Wonder what part of my body is hetero? My knee cap? An ear? Maybe one of my hips? What do you think?

Got suggestions?

  1. what if it’s dissolved in the 60-75% of your body that’s water, and you accidentally spit it out?!!

    great post. have a happy pride! i’m going to port alberni pride myself: so near vancouver and yet soooooooooooo far away.

    • Well.. I gotta say… I’m not much of one for spitting. But in all this heat I could easily sweat it out…
