According to this I'm an big oppressor getting only a score of 8. Most of the results mostly comes from unchangeable facts about me. Secondly my desire to educate myself and an ambition to stay in shape. Am I to understand that a higher score makes a better person? How does this test not prejudge me? If equal opportunity is the goal, this is not the answer.
Something stinks of socialism agenda!
a billionaire Saudi Sheikh is less privileged than a disabled homeless white man
filled in the stats as if I were Oprah Winfrey - "84% of others are more privileged than you", must be hard being a multi billionaire celebrity.
Only male and female options are displayed. I find this offensive.

Hilarious shit. Thank you for the laugh.
So, according to this calculator, and all other things being equal, a disabled male has more privilege than an able-bodied female. Who's the PhD behind this trite social justice analysis?
How being a devout Christian is lowering my oppression? Did anyone ever looked that its 2019 and ppl detest Christianity and all values it has??? Pathetic.
At a score of only 7, it appears that I ought to sell everything I own and give it to charity. I am ashamed of my low score and will try anything to bring it up. I've never failed anything this hard, even in physics.

I wish I was more oppressed. I never felt so disgusted about my self. I feel like my entire existence is an oppressive force.
This is ridiculous. ‘Privilege’ is just a way of making people feel disempowered or guilty. It’s a lose/lose system. Just be grateful for what you have, love yourself and treat everyone with respect and compassion. True empowerment comes from within and it has nothing to do with your ‘position in life’. The most privileged people are those who take time to renew their mind.
Funny how you have an MLK quote about a world where we don’t judge based on skin color.

Your intersectionality score: 5
You are more privileged than 96% of others!
Yay! It's almost like I don't have to go to work with the peasants..
I'm so glad that I took this test so that I know I can oppress 93% of people simply because I'm a straight, white, Christian man who isn't a failure. I'll get right to oppressing minorities right away. Even your own stats don't even make sense with the agenda you're trying to push guys, come on. Then again, logic is probably oppressive too, right?
Take that losers. Score 1. I am more privileged than 100% of others. I am more privileged than you. That means you should aspire to be like me, or at least try and make your children like me.
Lol. I'm am more privileged than 100% of others! Kneel before me peons!
Somehow I, a person of working class background from a former warzone am much more privileged than Barrack Obama; a wealthy former president of the most powerful country on the planet.
Awesome. I got a 3! It's like golf right? What's par? (so privileged I even know golf terminology).
About as scientific as a horoscope. Wouldn't that be a fun section in the newspaper? Integrate it with meteorology. "Today is gonna be a hot day. So all you fat people and muslim women, be aware your oppressed index just went up"
Waarom is deze site in het Engels en niet gewoon in het Nederlands? Oh wacht, Nederlands is een koloniale racistisch taal
A fact that was never true but was forced onto to people. After time, many of the general public just defaulted to it being correct. It became enforced and if anyone were to disagree, it wouldn't end well.

I am disappointed with my score of 7. If I can get 5 points for activism, maybe change religion and then chop of a hand, can get a promotion?
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.

This idealogy is deeply flawed. This is the mirror image of Nazism.
This thing is great for fun at parties. You should definitely add a slider for political and/or idiological standpoints, or economic views, like democrat/republican, progressive/moderate/conservative, capitalist/communist, etc. Maybe a slider for social activism like none at all to screeching at the sky when bad orange men are elected.

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.

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.
The saddest part of this is that there are vast swaths of liberals and progressives that think this is the best and should be used as a basis for things like taxes, interest rates, and most importantly, how much of my money should be used for reparations of all the peoples I have personally oppressed and continue to.
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
Being white, born in the USA, and now of an age and history, I will not apologize to any SJW or millennial or other, snot nose, malcontent who may feel triggered or had a safe space invaded (the horror!). Go suck an egg, and grow up, you pantywaist.
I am by birth an illegal, transgender, Muslim, uneducated, poor, old woman. But I identify as a rich white male christian doctor. So does that mean I broke the test?

Whahahaha. See here the complete and utter bankrupcy of the whole intersectionality movement (and with it, most of the "soft sciences" by now, it's a cancer) in one easy "web app". FYI, it's overly complicated. You really only need one single slider. It goes from "normal person" to "whiny bitch". That would at least neatly sidestep the rather horrible sanctioned discrimination on the bases of race, gender, belief, and whatnot else, that you're promoting here. That's right, "intersectionality" is nothing but complete and utter racism in a virtue signalling sauce. But still racism at its core. By promoting this you're making the world a little worse, certainly no better. Something to be proud of, eh.
I got a 7. Now where do I find the list of people it's still OK for me to oppress?
I've got some work to do if I want to get to "1"
This rating system is biased against me because of (in order) my skin color, sexuality, gender, income, age, education, and religion. Welcome to the new racism, sexism ... totalitarianism.
Haha oh wow, you need to add "your sides" slider. Mine are in the fucking orbit.
Heh. Only a “12”? I need to work harder. I love the cognitive dissonance that went into selecting quotes from people who spoke against judging people by their skin color and yet including a slide bar that scores you lower (bad) if you are white. Hard to tell if this site is seriously clueless or a satire.
You have got to be fucking kidding me. One of your quotes of the top by Muhammad Ali says that racism by anyone is wrong and yet here you are telling me I'm an oppressor knowing nothing at all about me and that I should just give my money away so that I can be less privileged. Maybe spend less time worrying about what victims you are and more about trying to better yourself
My god, what a stupid, pointless bit of pseudo interactive agitprop. It’s nice to discover I’m extraordinarily privileged as I head out for my morning commute, to my job as a manual labourer installing swimming pools and marble tile for rich Asians who, apparently, have much less privilege than I. You’d never know it comparing their mansions to my apartment, but the sliders don’t lie.
"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
"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."
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.
I noticed that this calculator only recognizes the gender continuum of cisgender to transgender. This bigoted nonsense offends people like me who identify as AH-64 Longbows. Please modify the calculator to be more inclusive of other identities such as sex robots and leprechauns.
A rich, straight, ph.d. cis, young, able-bodied, American, English speaking black person is less privileged than 72% of all people on Earth according to this. That should tell you everything you need to know about this parser.

Can I get a lower score if I beat up someone with a better intersectionality score? Asking for a friend
The failing of intersectionality is proven here very well. My fiance who is practically the same as me in terms of education, faith, health, sexuality, etc. The only differences we have are race, gender, and money. I am an upper middle class American white guy, while she comes from a rich and powerful family in Belize... Even though the money she is born into is far more than mine is she is still somehow less privileged... I found this funny, this proves very clearly why both of us thing this sort of ideology is a tumor. My score is 5, hers was 52...

I beg of you to take this site down for the good of all humankind. I dont even know where to begin but it suffices to say that if you have half a brain that functions, you dont take this seriously. Id be happy to explain why privately because I can single out your personal issues with my opinion rather than me having to form an essay on why this is bullshit.
However I will make a few points. This bothers me on a deep level. And I cannot believe this site in totally unironic. A few years ago this would be a complete joke!
1. You are completely ignoring what martin luther king said. Ill paraphrase: MLK said to judge people NOT on the color of their skin, but on the content of their character. So if im a black or white liberal, or a black or white trump supporter, it shouldnt hinder or bolster my opinion in any way.
(Example if I see a guy with alone with a hoodie in a 7 11 acting odd, I will be a bit uncomfortable, Black or white! Mind you if that person is black and I feel uncomfortable Ill be called a racist.)
2. This is over-generalized and you should AT LEAST put a disclaimer saying that these measures and calculations are extremely over-generalized, and are in no way indicative of
how privileged one is, simply due to the fact that you are disregarding all other major and minor factors in said persons life!
More privileged than 93% of the world! YAY! And the wife and I will be going for dinner at our local Country Club tonight! It's lobster night! Should we take the Toyota Rav4, or the Mercedes?
Looks like I'm pretty privileged. Can anyone tell me exactly what my privileges are? Do I get free appetizers at TGI Friday's or anything? Anything useful?
I scored 12 points as a white privileged grown up.
As a poor coloured female old gay transgender devoted to Muslim, disabled and born elsewhere without any education yet Dutch is my 2nd language, I score 97points. I have no privilege at all. Yet the Dutch government keeps on financing me.
Only Jews are off worse.

I was sure this was a joke. It's too absurd not to be.
Damn, 12! I'm more oppressed than I thought!
Become more involved with Islam and Judaism? Do they realize that if you believe a particular religion, that excludes you from being a part of another? Morons. If I’m Christian, I’m not going to become more Muslim to improve my intersectionality score, I’m just going to keep being a christian because being both is literally impossible. Religion is not just a culture, it’s a belief in a particular vision of the truth.
This is the stuff of the party who opposes Trump? Wow the media is a super propaganda machine.
