Leftist Girly Girl

Apparently I'm more left than I realized, or not right enough for the Political Compass, which Holly took and talks about her answers and more here.

The questions were manipulative, to be sure, but I answered them honestly according to my politics. I personally don't believe in abortion, but I make that choice only for myself. I don't believe that I or anyone else has the right to decide the issue for others. I don't want us to return to the days of the coat-hanger and the back alley abortionists, either. Thus I am pro-choice in my politics, and strongly agree with keeping abortion legal.

Despite my leftist inclinations, I'm not unhappy with my numbers: Economic Left/Right: -5.25; Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.00. On the example of the graph that shows where famous politicians would land, my score puts me right between Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama. I couldn't have picked better neighbors.
