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.

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. Again, we suggest you publicly show your support for more oppressed 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 ableism, ageism, anti-Semitism, biphobia, cissexism, classism, homophobia, Islamophobia, racism, sexism, 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, trangender, or asexual). We are for social justice and equity!

This was fun, but I'm ashamed I couldn't score lower than a 16. To improve the test, I think it would be great to add in photos of some of the less privileged people I'm likely to be oppressing.

This is inherently a pile of invalid, biased, non scientific BS. If I go through and check binary choices only i already score a 33.therein lies your problem. Binary choices should be exactly that.i could go on, but the fact they state the MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE PRIVELAGED, proves the invalidity of the measurement. Have you guys considered taking a statistics class? Let’s take an extreme example: a Muslim tranny. I’ve got news for you, the biggest enemy to the Muslim tranny is the straight Muslim. This type of hyperbole is what continues the division in the US and other places.
Score: ? in Alpharetta, GA
Look at all of the ppl who are in a paroxysm of vitriol - their scores are low. Self reflection? Opening your mind to the experience of the “other” much? and what about the fool who claims white Europeans built the world as it is and is proud of it. Explains a lot of how much further we have to go before we can live in harmony with non white, non Christians ppl, who btw, are the majority of the world. And to the fool who thinks white ppl built the world? Read a bit more widely and study history. You’ll find among other things that Jesus was NOT white. Chew on that.

“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.”

So... if I’m uneducated, extremely young or old, or report myself as religious in the extreme, I should have more of a say in how the country is run than everyone else? Please explain.

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 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.

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.
