This is kinda bullshit. Having the means to immigrate to another country makes you less oppressed, not more. And there's no one doing the oppression.
This website advocates that people with higher intersectionality scores should get more votes than people with lower scores. This is political eugenics. Insanity on steroids. Anyone who believes this crap, or attempts to use this to create public policy is a dangerous person to our society.

From the website it states: To start every business meeting by forcing your employees to share their intersectionality scores. Not only is this stupid, oppressive, bullying, discriminatory, sexist and bigoted IT IS ILLEGAL!!! It is illegal to consider race, sex, marriage, religion, as a qualifier/disqualifier for employment or within employed status. Any employer who attempts to use this to pit employees against each other or use it to determine wages, promotions, demotions or other hiring and employment practices should be rightfully sued until they exist no more.

I don’t think this works, the sliding scale idea, when talking about gender privilege. I was assigned female at birth, but I’m non-binary and trans. I present androgynously, but I wouldn’t say that it makes sense that according to this, I’d have less privilege, as someone who presents androgynously. It doesn’t make sense. Transphobia, cissexism, sexism, and homophobia are complicated. Also, being “100% gay” doesn’t necessarily mean you’re less privileged. Many pan and queer people are more oppressed than cis gay men, in particular. Also, gender, presentation, and anatomy (gender assigned at birth) are three totally different things, that intersect in very complicated ways! I’d like to see this updated, to accommodate for non-binary trans folks. Because I’m a lot of ways, non-binary trans people can face more obstacles (legally and socially) than binary trans people. Maybe you could add a scale from binary to non-binary trans, but that still wouldn’t be anywhere near perfect. I like the idea, but think it needs major tweaking

Why does age and disability have such a minor effect on the score? I’m sorry but a serious disability has a much bigger impact to someone’s “ability to get ahead” than simply gender let’s say. Many disabled people can hardly leave the house or need full time care. Same goes for age - what about my 70 year old father who can barely walk 5 steps anymore, is it really easier for him to get ahead than my wife, a successful entrepreneur?

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.

What the heck? How are jews privileged, this seems anti-semitic.
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."

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?
