Don Winter is not a band, it's a person.

I guess he meant the answer behind Don Winter is a person and not a band.

(and he's right)

They had an awesome live show too. I think they're still touring a little. I remember seeing something that they were playing in Brooklyn a couple years ago but I couldn't make it for some reason. They were local to me when I was a kid in northern Illinois - as I recall they were from Lake Geneva WI.

Come on, King and Queen are not antonyms. Oh well, I've said that one before (for man and woman I mean), let's just give one point to this quiz.

I just kept looking and looking through the comments. I knew someone was gonna whine about something or other not really being an antonym. I can go now. My experience of this quiz is complete.

I'm not complaining about words "not really being antonyms". I'm complaining about the philosophy which consists in opposing the human sexes. In my opinion, there are very few differences between men and women.

This type of comment is just the worst. This quiz is given to you for free, with someone putting in the time and effort to make it somewhat fun. For the record, I believe many people would say that gender is on a scale, with one end being male and the other being female, and many other genders in between. I would think that sufficiently explains why one might consider them opposites, just like the extremes on any scale. I give your comment one star! * Look how lonely that little star is! How do YOU like it? Huh?

Instead of "Obedient by Nature" why not "Obedient via Artificial" so that both words are antonyms.

All in all, I love the quiz!

Both words are antonyms! The clue is "Obedient by Nurture."
