In politics, we could use these scores to compensate for previous social injustice by weighing votes in proportional to ones intersectional score. For example, someone with an intersectional score of 60 would get twice as many votes as someone with a score of 30. This would produce a more inclusive outcome and improve overall diversity.
Can I use this calculator on others?
Yes! Many people say that they enjoy calculating the intersectional scores of others so they can easily identify and help those who are faced with systemic oppression. Once you know which of your friends have higher scores, you might find that you have something to learn from them.
We believe that people fit along a spectrum of identities. For example, you might be slightly bisexual, somewhat poor, Jewish but rarely wear a yarmulke, and native born but travel frequently abroad. By having the option to be 'somewhere in the middle', this gives a more accurate assessment of your intersectionality score.
