This whole thing is blatantly anti white and it's disgusting. I am a cis straight mixed race male who was born in the US to an upper middle class family. I'm 1/3 white, and I'm 2/3 Brahmin North Indian. I have very light skin/features, and I've spent my entire life in the US, so I often get mistaken for being white. When I had my sliders set to identify around 66% "person of color" which I technically am (I guess), I was apparently more oppressed than 51% of people. As soon as I moved my slider to more than half white I immediately become "more privileged" than most people! I know for a fact this isn't true. I had a great upbringing in a relatively wealthy home in a white community. Even if you set this thing to be 100% straight white male, but put the income and education level at the bottom you'll still apparently be more privileged than most people. I can tell you for a fact that I'm more privileged than most white people I know. This is based in nothing more than being racist towards white people, and in 50 years people will look back on these types of "intersectionality tests" as completely pseudoscientific and bigoted. Whoever agrees with this ideology needs to spend some time in the real world. You'll rarely see anyone getting advantages because they're white when they're poor and living in a single parent household in rural Arkansas.
Wow, I mean WOW ! Basing worth on physical and social characteristics. You went so far left that you`ve reached NAZI RACIAL IDEOLOGY levels, with muslims as black lesbian muslim master "race".

What if you're white and belong to a group of people who are being replaced/eliminated and thus do not feel very privileged at all?
Oh, I rule the world. Nice to know
You know, here's the thing about intersectionality. As you point out, there are literally 100s (and probably way more) of factors that can affect people's lives. If you split people into groups and go further and further and down ad infinitum, do you know what you'll find? You get down to the level of the individual. Which incidentally, is precisely the level at which Western society (for hundreds of years) has said you should treat people.
Obviously this is a matter of principle, and anyone can find examples where that doesn't happen, and I will happily stand with you in supporting people who are treated unfairly by someone else due to something like their skin colour. But this notion of privilege points and intersectionality scores is the biggest load of rubbish I have ever seen. Treating people who belong to a group as a homogenous bloc is insulting and stupid. In fact, the evidence is that you will find more diversity within a group than between groups!
According your "reasoning", a homeless white cisgender UK-born male is somehow more privileged than a rich, lesbian immigrant woman of colour. Can you not see this is utter madness?!?!?!
There's a relatively famous chap (you may have heard of him) who once said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
Seems to me you people would rather judge us by the colour of our skin (among other things). Disappointing.

I've been battling physical and mental illness for all my life, was close to dying during my early childhood while I was hooked up to medical equipment, was closer to dying during my teen years when my sickness made me self-destructive and alcoholic, and now I'm considering just ending this shitshow because there's no support or hope in my life... So where's my white privilege now? Where's my native born, middle class privilege now? Can I use it for something before everything goes under, or is intersectionality just a load of ideological trash that doesn't accurately reflect reality and the actual struggles people go through in life?.. Never mind the website just gave me anti-racist quotes as if my skin color automatically makes me an oppressor class and helped absolutely nothing; thank you for making the world a better place.
To be fair at least, it's admirable that they're keeping the more spicy comments up. Hoping that my venting stays up.

How the hell is being a poor disabled male person better than being a gay POC rich female person? You are literally saying someone with no legs, who lives under a bridge in the third world has an easier life than a black lesbian able bodied person in a mansion. That is crazy.
As a bisexual, brown gender nonconforming man who is disabled in a couple of significant ways ... what the everloving fuck are you doing with your completely mangled understanding of privilege and oppression? Oppression olympics only pits marginalised groups against each other and places them in subjective hierarchies.
In Turkey, being a Muslim is not something you get oppressed for. Not being a Muslim is. And there are literally hundreds of other religions you did not include. And being an atheist is considered worse than being gay in most places in the world. And this is not a guess, this is a well known result of a sociological study. In Turkey we have gay and transgender celebrities but not one openly atheist celebrity. You know why? Because if a famous person comes out as an atheist in Turkey they most probably get killed, not just ridiculed, belittled, shouted at, bullied, discriminated against. Atheists get killed. The president calls atheists "terrorists". And you get more points if you choose "more Muslim" in this test.
Also... Yeah, good idea on the sliders, I can be 100% Muslim, 100% Jewish and 100% Christian at the same time. Belonging to one of these literally most popular religions in the world must be a real bummer compared to all the other minority religions and beliefs. And not even Hinduism or Buddhism or anything, just the three major religions that originated in the middle east.
And your "race" slider is the most USA centric bullshit I have ever seen. Racism doesn't just happen between whites and "all the other people". All countries have racism and it is almost never just about your skin color. It is about ethnicity, race. Do you think in Turkey people oppress black people or Mexicans? Do you think Turkish people are white? Do you think we fall in one of your stupid race=color??? categories: Black(African), Brown(Middle eastern/Hindu), Yellow(Asian/Far east Asian really but wrongly generalized), White(European/Caucasian) Yeah, we are not African, we are not European, not Middle Eastern either, we are originated from Asia really, but we don't look "Asian" because we are not far eastern. Our skin is mostly between white and brown if you really want a color. Do you think because we are not "white" we are not capable of oppressing people? Do you think people just oppress based on color, that racism is all about color? Do you think white Arabs, blonde Kurds don't exist, or they don't at least get a prejudice in Turkey? Do you think we have an easily recognizable color difference with all the minorities that are oppressed because of their ethnicity/race?
Hilarious! If you have a sense of humor.
Lets take a moment to appreciate how true these quotes are, and take in the sweet comedy this obvious satire holds.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
- Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
“The best way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”
“Hating people because of their color is wrong and it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just wrong.”
Privilege goes by money then colour then gender. There are poor white people just like there are rich people of colour. Here's a question: if you are to be questioned by police, what colour would you prefer to be, white or black?

Interesting, the stats here show the most oppressive group is English-speaking male. Are you sure it's not straight white male? Did this site just unlock a big secret that the social justice warriors haven't figured out?
It turns out that if I'm a female, straight, coloured, foreign born, heterosexual, devout islamo-jew who speaks German as a second language, is extremely well educated and is rich, I'd be more oppressed than 84% of the world. Those poor female foreign born coloured heterocis university educated rich islamo-jews! Pity them as they suffer in their mansions under the yoke of oppression!
This has got to be trolling. I know there are morons who actually believe this stuff - they're especially clustered teaching at universities - but they're usually aware at some level how toxic and stupid this stuff is so they usually shy away from being open about it with the general public.
White privilege. Because it's white people's fault that the browner peoples of the world haven't been as good at civilization building over the past 5-6 centuries (aside from the Koreans, Japanese and a few other East Asian nationalities). This is monumentally stupid.

I have a problem with the "Education" tab. I was always taught that the Trades are for people who hate schooling but as a trades kid myself, it's pretty harsh. In my country, women have the privilege of high grants and preference in hiring due to the optics of diversity, regardless of compitence and skill. This isn't a good thing in this sort of field because respect is earned by proving yourself, regardless of what's between your legs. Your test is flawed due to how you're trying to apply a beurocratic generalization to a group of inidividuals from all creeds, races and self-identifications.
What a total crock of shit. Things evolved as they did due economics, intelligence, and cooperation. Aricans score the lowest on all three. This is not tacist, but the uncomfortable truth.
