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.

What about peanut allergies?
We know that 100s of other factors such political affiliation, height, attractiveness, weight and even peanut allergies 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 racism, sexism, ableism, ageism, anti-Semitism, biphobia, cissexism, classism, homophobia, Islamophobia, transphobia, ethnocentrism, xenophobia and discrimination (even prejudice) of all forms regardless of your race, country of origin, sexual orientation (e.g., bisexual, nonbinary, intersex, lesbian, queer, transgender, or asexual). We are for social justice and equity!

I find it ironic that you've posted a quote stating that people shouldn't be judged by the color of their skin, but then literally link a numeric value to that attribute.
Score: 9 in Canada
Why does this test make a judgement on the basis of race while including a quote from MLK calling for not judging people on the basis of their race, but the content of their character? WTF? He would probably be disgusted by a site like this.

Dog shit. This is how rich people pretend to be a victim. Notice how wealthy you are doesn't move the needle at all. So you have a filthy rich college educated tranny coming up telling you about their woes while you live in a gutter. Go fuck yourself. You are the oppressor no matter how you paint it in your daddy's paid university.

This is really stupid, why does being a female is more privilege than a male? And why does the colour of a person got to do with this test?

This is easily one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
1. I'm ASIAN. Technically a PoC, but definitely not the brown shown on the slider.
2. Really? Being Jewish or Muslim is somehow "better" for your score than, say, Buddhism, Taoism, or Hinduism? GTFO.
3. The actual heck does my first language have to do with my privilege? My first language is Mandarin Chinese, but I am fluent in English. Somehow that makes me more (or less) privileged than someone else?

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 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. You can give exclusive opportunties and promotions to people with high intersectionality scores so that they become more represented in positions of power. We also suggest every group meeting to begin with everyone sharing their intersectionality scores.


The most powerful use of Intersectionality is to identify oppressors and encourage them to share their privilege (and money) with the victims of their oppression. This would produce a more inclusive outcome and improve overall diversity.

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.

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.

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. Again, we suggest you publicly show your support for more oppressed groups regardless of your feelings.

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

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.
