I speak one of the most unintelligible and hard to learn languages in the world that no-one outside my country knows or even want to know. Also I was born in my country, a drab grey shithole where they lack of sunlight makes you want slit your wrists, you can't have a house of your own without a six number loan and your can't have decent living without working 60 hours a week. If I was born in Switzerland or Japan I'd be soo much worse off. Also I had the misfortune to be born a man, so I'm 8 times as likely to commit suicide than women in my country while living 5 year shorter lifespan. No to mention I must have higher score to be admitted to university, treated less charitably by the police, random people on the street or teachers in school. Oh, and also when it comes to divorce, I have 50% chance of losing my house to my former wife and 97% chance of not having the custody over my children, which means paying thousands in alimony a month, while having to see my kid once every two weeks. Very cool.
But thank you Intersectionality Score Calculator that you convinced me that those things are privileges.
Why do they say you can “explore the wild side of your sexuality” to improve your score? I was told that being gay wasn’t a lifestyle choice. Well, maybe it is according to intersexuality.

Congratulations, you've made yourselves a stupid straw man to play with, and now you get to feel pleased with yourselves for sniggering at people who care about people with problems that not everyone is familiar with. For those who aren't in on it, this is an attempt at a joke: "log-exponential multivariable analysis", for example, is meaningless jargon (logarithms and exponents cancel each other out), and no actual social theorist who cares about intersectionality would ever argue that privilege in human societies can be reduced to such a trivial statistic.

Intersectionality is Frankfurt School Cultural Marxism, Fabian Socialism. It is part of an accelerationist scheme to destroy the West. The leftist idea of equality is a deleterious, subtractive concept to knock the West down to Third World levels. It is about equality of outcomes, not equality of opportunity. Reject this defeatist ideology with every fiber of your being. Militant atheist socialists/communists have killed 100M+ people in the last century. Don't let the West fall victim to what took Venezuela and Cuba from being prosperous nations to utter poverty and starvation!
I've always considered myself a liberal, but this is disgusting.
"You can give exclusive opportunties and promotions to people with high intersectionality scores so that they become more represented in positions of power."
You mean I should leave jobs empty and undone until a qualified person representing a smaller slice of humanity than average emerges?

I love how you have a quote that says stop discriminating the basis of race but then you automatically put black people as under privileged, hmm. Also how does believing in God make you more privileged?
This is obviously satire - but is actually a great concept in my opinion to break down the different types of privileges and explain intersectionality. Too bad it's a joke! The rest of you triggered low scoring people can calm tf down. It's not that serious. Privilege doesn't mean you didn't work for what you have, just that someone else had more and different kind of obstacles than you.
Funny how you have an MLK quote about a world where we don’t judge based on skin color.

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."

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.

The entire concept of intersectionality is completely bogus. I don't care about your skin color, your gender, or your sexual preference. Are you a leach or a contributor? Are you obeying the law, or are you breaking the law? That's all that matters. This is what we should be teaching our children, along with good money management practices. PERIOD
Shouldn't there be a question about whether or not you're a crossing guard or traffic cop, or maybe are married to one? This is about intersections right?

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."
So basically you want to fuck over white people for their race, nationality, gender identity and religion? Sounds like the exact opposite of the dream quoted.
