My score is 5. If I really turn it on at work, however, and am careful with my investments and savings, I may be able to get my score down to a 3. I live in hope.
to overcome my privilege I identify as a black transgender muslim atheist with special needs. I've chosen Swahili as my new language and wear a burqa on weekends.
As a 6 I want to apologise to all those I oppress simply by existing. My white privilege is not my fault but my parents. I also blame them for being able bodied. I'm going to transition to black and see if that helps the oppressed.
This is hands down the dumbest thing I have ever seen. Did tax money pay to develop this calculator? Oh well, at least it is good for a laugh.
Wow!!! I am 99% more privileged than all of you! I'm going to stop by the country club on my way to the ski chalet this weekend!

According to the authors, all you gotta do to win the game of life is to be a white straight cisgender male with a lot of cash in his 20s, capable of speaking your countries native language and not have any physical abnormalities.
Obviously, you also can't win if you're not a devout Christian that gets a STEM degree while mocking jews and muslims.
It's all there, you can scroll up and test it yourself.
If you convert to Islam or Judaism, you'll be in a worse situation.
If you immigrate, sticking to your native tongue instead of learning the local one also impacts you negatively.
Changing gender also makes your life worse as does being anything other than straight.
As you scroll those bars left and right, I hope you come to the logical conclusion of what the authors wanted: Avoid as much as possible being part of any opressed group, it will make your life miserable. Go to church and work for money!
"you can make some improvement to your score by getting more involved with Islam or Judaism"
You do know that both religions are literally at war at each other, right? That the holy books of both talk about killing the members of the opposite religion.
Getting involved with both sounds like a good way to make enemies of both, but then again that does sound like a good way to reduce your privilege, while also solving nothing like everyone expected this solution to do.
"We hope that this calculator will help (snip)"
You're not gonna end ableism unless you break everyone's knees. Being more able is good and not a problem.
You're not going to end any kind of antisemitism or -phobia, -ism because you never address why someone would ever actually have those positions. Maybe their fear isn't so irrational at all.
As usual, this is nothing but a placebo to make you feel good about pointing fingers to everyone that worked harder and got success in life, not actually helping anyone.
The quiz determines my location which happens to be not an English speaking nation with mostly non-white citizens, yet if I check English as first language and being white I become more privileged. The quiz is a bit misleading like that, since it is clearly designed to be taken by people who live in English speaking, white majority, Christian majority nations.
Look upon me with ravenous envy you pathetic troglodytes!
I think I'll use Intersectionality as a viable excuse to let others speak so I don't have to mentor anyone and help them rise above their station.
Good luck comrades!

The most oppressed group in the current political climate is a straight, white, Christian man.
I'm a straight man with white skin in my mid-thirties. I'm fat, but I don't consider that a disability as it's something I can get rid of by working out and eating better. I've got a decent education but my income is far below average and I'm living in my dad's old apartment since I can't afford to have a place of my own. I barely make enough cash to feed myself and I haven't been on a "night out" in years. And yet I'm more privileged than 75% of the world?
Lol. I'm am more privileged than 100% of others! Kneel before me peons!

Ok so you guys hate white, middle aged men, which love women, are well educated and work hard enough to provide to themselves and their families. Men who help to build and protect society in country they were born in. Oh and for whatever reason, you also hate Christians, because apparently Jesus idea of selfless sacrifice of self to others is revolting deplorable concept. Bravo.
No we are not going to be ashamed of being decent human beings. Keep on hating.

I got a 1! Now how do I cash out and use my powers of oppression? Do I start waving around my white cismale organs (how essentialist!) and a Bible/cross in order to force oppressed people to do my bidding like a sorcerer? If I'm super privileged and there's nothing I can do about it, I might as well capitalize (yeah, that's right, capitalism is awesome) and make my mark. Look upon my works and despair, feminists!
Seriously, this is hilarious, whether a troll or not (hard to tell). Bravo.

What is most distressing and pathetic about this is that this lunacy is firmly entrenched in universities and gaining legitimacy (such as it is) in mainstream discourse, well in the media and the left...but I repeat myself. If white Europeans have any reason to feel some sense of "privilege" perhaps it is because they created and built the world in which we live today, with the occasional contribution of other cultures...occasional.
Unemployed, lonely and depressed.
Awesome. I got a 3! It's like golf right? What's par? (so privileged I even know golf terminology).

I scored a 5, but my perception of rich vs poor maybe invalid?? I think I am rich, because I can afford a roof over my head and food on the table. Better yet I can have a beer on weekends, with friends. So according to the 'do gooders', I believe that makes me rich and privileged!
I am more privaledged (ie. better) than 100% of others (pretty sure that doesn't math good).
I always knew I was the best. Everyone else can suck it while I enjoy the fruits of being more priviledge. Such as:
-paying higher taxes so that those less priviledge can receive money that I earned
-I when I was in school and now my children needing better grades and more extra curriculars than their peers to get into the same schools
-having to compete for jobs against people who get 'bonus points' for just existing

Only a complete IDIOT believes in the myth of "white privelege". If it's real, where's mine? I scored THREE but nobody gives me anything. I have to earn it all by myself. I studied, I learned, I worked hard to get what I have, and at no point did anybody GIVE it to me. So tell me again how it's privelege? I've also never held anybody else back from any opportunity to succeed the same way I do.

I pray that I will be faithful in giving to God and to others what he requires of me.
