Intersectionality Calculator

You may have heard of intersectionality - "the theory that the overlap of various social identities, such as race, gender, and sexuality, define your level of systemic oppression" - but don't know how to compare your oppression with others. Now, you can!

Simply adjust the sliders below according to your identity factors to see your intersectionality score.

Why sliders?
We believe that people fit along a spectrum of identities. For example, you might be slightly bisexual, somewhat poor, Jewish but rarely wear a yarmulke, and native born but travel frequently abroad. By having the option to be 'somewhere in the middle', this gives a more accurate assessment of your intersectionality score.

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. The easiest way to improve your score, however, is to champion the intersectionality of your more-marginalized friends. You may award yourself up to 5 points depending on the level of your activism.

Why include religion?
Some have commented that the religious sliders are anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, atheistophobic or possibly even Christianophobic. They are included to show that a complete intersectionality score embraces the diversity of religious thought if they are of a minority groups.

Can I be accused of being oppressive even if I have a high score?
Yes, having a high intersectionality score doesn't completely immunize you from being called an oppressor. You may be vulnerable to "weakest link" attacks - that is, being called an oppressor on any of the intersectionality factors by those disadvantaged in that factor. For example, a gay black man could still be accused of being a misogynist by women or a poor, immigrant woman could be called transphobic by a transperson. Again, we suggest you publicly show your support for more oppressed groups regardless of your feelings.

What about peanut allergies?
We know that 100s of other factors such political affiliation, height, attractiveness, weight and even peanut allergies can impact your personal intersectionality score. Hopefully, we will be able to address these factors in the future.

What's the goal here?
We hope that this calculator will help fight ableism, ageism, anti-Semitism, biphobia, cissexism, classism, homophobia, Islamophobia, racism, sexism, transphobia, ethnocentrism, xenophobia and discrimination (even prejudice) of all forms regardless of your race, country of origin, sexual orientation (e.g., bisexual, nonbinary, intersex, lesbian, queer, transgender, or asexual). We are for social justice and equity!

Ha! I’m me, and I’ll never apologize for any perceived “privileges” that others try and force upon me. I grew up poor, worked hard, and am now successful. Feel bad about it? No thanks. Privilege caused it? Nope. Not being lazy caused it and never giving up. 👍🏻

You do realize that this "intersectionality calculator" violates the very quote above that you hold up as noble?

Intersectionality/critical theory is bogus; it's garbage thinking. Folks, wake up, pull your heads out, and quit being victims!

And if that doesn't trigger you, let me help: many of these "categories" are completely made up. There's no such thing as "cisgender", "transgender". A dude can't all of a sudden become a chick, and a chick can't all of a sudden become a dude. That's biology 101, and that's where this garbage leads: a complete denial of reality and rational thinking. What a crock!

So I'm less oppressed if I'm born in Puerto Rico than elsewhere? lol

Religion, skin color and gender are weighted so heavily its hilarious. I sincerely can't tell if this is satire or not anymore.

I'm gay (yay for me) which shouldn't matter to anyone else.
It's sad that so many people are so devoid of character that they can only find identity in things they had no control over. Oddly enough the way to move forward is to STOP caring. You can never have an egalitarian society so long as you judge others based on superficialities which this does despite taking the moral high ground. I got a good laugh out of reading those quotes next to this mess.

The only way to get the highest score of intersectionality is to be a very dark person of color, female, trans, gay, disabled,poor, uneducated, born elsewhere, young or old, english as second language, muslim, jewish or Christian to obtain maximum amount of victomhood points, so /pol/ was right all along about the disable trans gay black woman meme, holy shit.

What is an Intersectionality Score?
It's an easy and effective way to measure the systematic oppression and discrimination faced by an individual due to their multiple identity factors. Having a high Intersectionality Score means being faced with more challenges to get ahead than someone who has a lower score.

How are the scores calculated?
We carefully consider the factors that make up various forms of social pressure and oppression. Then, using multivariable analysis, we are able to calculate the contribution that each factor has on an individual relative to their demographic size.

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. The easiest way to improve your score, however, is to champion the intersectionality of your more-marginalized friends. You may award yourself up to 5 points depending on the level of your activism.

How can they be used?
The scores has many practical uses. Primarily, it can be used to help those who are historically marginalized. In an office setting, you can easily identify those who may have unique, and most often overlooked or disregarded perspectives. Some people even advocate giving more opportunties and promotions to people with high intersectionality scores so that they become more represented in positions of power. We suggest every group meeting to begin with everyone sharing their intersectionality scores.


In politics, we could use these scores to compensate for previous social injustice by weighing votes in proportional to ones intersectional score. For example, someone with an intersectional score of 50 would get 5/3 as many votes as someone with a score of 30. This would produce a more inclusive outcome and improve overall diversity.

Can I use this calculator on others?
Yes! Many people say that they enjoy calculating the intersectional scores of others so they can easily identify and help those who are faced with systemic oppression. Once you know which of your friends have higher scores, you might find that you have something to learn from them.

Can I be accused of being oppressive even if I have a high score?
Yes, having a high intersectionality score doesn't completely immunize you from being called an oppressor. You may be vulnerable to "weakest link" attacks - that is, being called an oppressor on any of the intersectionality factors by those disadvantaged in that factor. For example, a gay black man could still be accused of being a misogynist by women or a poor, immigrant woman could be called transphobic by a transperson. Again, we suggest you publicly show your support for more oppressed groups regardless of your feelings.
