The photo showed six First Ladies walking together at the dedication of Ronald Reagan’s Presidential Library in 1991.  I posted it here on my blog and also on my Caffeinated Politics Facebook page.    There is no way I could know within hours that post would start to generate interest, shares, and conversation.   As of this posting there have been 13,583,894 people reached by the post and 1,625,445 engaged by the post.    With my humble attempt to honor the life of a former first lady my little blog went viral.  And in a major way.

The largest part of my FB audience for this post (24%) are women between the ages of 55-64.   87% of those who saw my post did so on a mobile device.

Indeterminable

I don’t know how popular that “true gender mix” test is, but it can’t possibly give you an answer to that question. Quite aside from whether there is such a thing as your true gender mix, if you know it’s a true-gender-mix test, your answers will be tainted by whatever it is you want to be. And just from the fine print in that “70% Female” result, you can see that the test is designed to lure males into identifying as female. Female apparently means “kind and understanding.” If you strain to be seen as 100% male — if that’s what you want to be — you’re going to be told in the end that you’re a dick.
