Intersectionality Calculator

You may have heard of intersectionality - "the theory that the overlap of various social identities, such as race, gender, and sexuality, contributes to the systemic oppression and discrimination experienced by an individual" - but don't know how to compare your level of oppression with others. Now, you can!

Simply adjust the sliders below according to your identity factors to see your intersectionality score.

Simply adjust the sliders below according to your identity factors to see your intersectionality score.
You can use it when you're interacting with others to know who's more marginalized instead of getting to know them as individuals.

New! Google bans our ad for keyword "white privilege" claiming we have "dangerous content".

Move sliders to the amount you identify as each below.

Scroll to the top to see your intersectional score!
Why sliders?
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.

How can I improve my score?
Unfortunately, you are born with most of your intersectional factors. However, you can make some improvement to your score by getting more involved with Islam or Judaism, donate all excess wealth to charity, or explore the wild side of your sexuality. The easiest way to improve your score, however, is to champion the intersectionality of your more-marginalized friends. You may award yourself up to 5 points depending on the level of your activism.

Why include religion?
Some have commented that the religious sliders are anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, atheistophobic or possibly even Christianophobic. They are included to show that a complete intersectionality score embraces the diversity of religious thought if they are of a minority groups.

Can I be accused of being oppressive even if I have a high score?
Yes, having a high intersectionality score doesn't completely immunize you from being called an oppressor. You may be vulnerable to "weakest link" attacks - that is, being called an oppressor on any of the intersectionality factors by those disadvantaged in that factor. For example, a gay black man could still be accused of being a misogynist by women or a poor, immigrant woman could be called transphobic by a transperson.

What about peanut allergies?
We know that 100s of other factors such peanut allergies, height, attractiveness, and weight can impact your personal intersectionality score. Hopefully, we will be able to address these factors in the future.

What's the goal here?
We hope that this calculator will help fight ableism, ageism, anti-Semitism, biphobia, cissexism, classism, homophobia, Islamophobia, racism, sexism, transphobia, sore throats, ethnocentrism, xenophobia and discrimination (even prejudice) of all forms regardless of your race / skin color or country of origin or if you're bisexual, nonbinary, intersex, lesbian, queer, trangender (your gender identity isn't the same as your birth assigned sex), or asexual. Social justice and equity for all now!

Awesome. I got a 3! It's like golf right? What's par? (so privileged I even know golf terminology).
Score: 1 in Australia
I consider that I am fortunate and blessed. Privileged is a term used by people who are consumed with negativity.

I got 12. I tried to get lower but couldn't crack single digits. You people are ageist idiots. Every old person would gladly trade places with a young person with lots of other baggage. Intersectionality is a crock of shit anyway. Go have a pity party.

So no sliding scale for veterans and those who served their country, nation and citizens?
I scored a 5, but my perception of rich vs poor maybe invalid?? I think I am rich, because I can afford a roof over my head and food on the table. Better yet I can have a beer on weekends, with friends. So according to the 'do gooders', I believe that makes me rich and privileged!

As a gay man I can say without any hesitation that the LAST thing I want is to have someone who doesn't know me trying to speak up for MY sexual orientation. the most homophobic people are the people who think their not and then give me lectures about how I am not getting along with 'others' because my sexuality isn't their pipe dream. I absolutely hate women who treat me like I'm nothing more than a Prada handbag they wave around as a form of virtue signaling. I'm not going to talk for other 'minorities' but really I don't see how all of them aren't telling 'intersectionalists' to go fuck themselves.

I am only 82% more privileged. I feel like a failure. I was hoping for at least 95%. May be it's because I'm not Jewish or a teenager. I hope no taxpayer had to fund this ridiculous bit of onanism.

The only thing more stupid than intersectionality theory are the people who take it seriously.

Meanwhile, the main users of this site appear to be conservatives competing with each other to get the lowest score. LOL
Score: 13 in Kingsbury, IN
My score is 4, which means I should be oppressing y'all. Get in line. Oh wait, I'm being oppressed at the moment by the man, who in my business (education) are mostly female administrators, female committee chairs and dept chairs ... so just as soon as I get out from under their thumb, I'll start oppressing y'all.

Mixed black/latino/white guy. Straight and cis. Not rich, but enough money to not need government handouts. Guess no gibs for me. The democrats only seem to be interested in captive audiences.

I scored a 10, I am more privileged than 84% of others. HUM, it's 5 am and I'm leaving for work, LEAVING not just waking up. I'll be home from work in about 14 hours from now. Seems my privilege is over rated.........
Score: 10 in Englewood, NJ
I got a 3 so I can only improve my score by a couple more points. Maybe I will revisit the rich score and compare it to world figures. 9 of 10 Americans are above the global median income so if you are in the US you should be on the rich side.

Wow. Was this site produced by The Onion? I'm glad some people use this to justify their marginal work ethic and success. Blame other and take no personal responsibility. Sounds like progress. Lets protest vs going to work. From each according to their ability, To each according to their needs (and race, sexually, & religion). Karl would be proud.

What is an Intersectionality Score?
It's an easy and effective way to measure the systematic oppression and discrimination faced by an individual due to their multiple identity factors. Having a high Intersectionality Score means being faced with more challenges to get ahead than someone who has a lower score.

How are the scores calculated?
We carefully consider the factors that make up various forms of social pressure and oppression. Then, using log-exponential multivariable analysis, we are able to calculate the contribution that each factor has on an individual relative to their demographic size.

How can I improve my score?
Unfortunately, you are born with most of your intersectional factors. However, you can make some improvement to your score by getting more involved with Islam or Judaism, donate all excess wealth to charity, or explore the wild side of your sexuality. The easiest way to improve your score, however, is to champion the intersectionality of your more-marginalized friends. You may award yourself up to 5 points depending on the level of your activism.

How can they be used?
The scores has many practical uses. Primarily, it can be used to help those who are historically marginalized. In an office setting, you can easily identify those who may have unique, and most often overlooked or disregarded perspectives. Some people even advocate giving more opportunties and promotions to people with high intersectionality scores so that they become more represented in positions of power. We suggest every group meeting to begin with everyone sharing their intersectionality scores.


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.

Why sliders?
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.

Intersectionality Scores by Percent

As you can see below, intersectional scores are as diverse as the people they represent. The majority of people have low intersectional scores which mean they have more inherent privilege than others.
