What are you worth?

So I was on this random blog (check it out when you have time) and this guy I guess just "stumbles upon", which is ironically another interesting site, a site called and on the site it has this quiz. The quiz is centered around the old principle of a suitor paying the father of the woman he wants to wed a dowry. The dowry could be land/animals/money/etc. In this case the dowry is goats. So the quiz asks you a series of questions and at the end you are rated a number of goats that you are worth. I am apparently worth 9 goats. Anyways I bring this all up because it got me thinking about femininity and our society.

Honestly, I feel like no one thinks like this anymore.
