+145. So how come my life sucks?

I am black intersex gay trans from middle east. Although I am homeless, blind, deaf, have HIV and am a retard, I still believe that Muslim is the right call for me. And being scientist works for me as I am short and kinda disfigured.

Fuck me, right?

P.S.
I got a kind guy on friday night to type this for me. He wouldn't tell me the total score, but he says it's pretty good.

+25 jewish
I saw what you did there.

125, though I think the atheism should get +something in most Western countries.

If you can't fucking spell Saturday, kill yourself

Christian +5 doesn't work, it should rather be +5 for ateist. Jewish +25 works well :)

Anonymous said...

No, Christians are at an advantage, atheists are not.

I got -455

Norwar? That must be a heck of a place ... (btw - what exactly did you score? And you can subtract 500 for thinking of this and misspelling so much to start!)

Spell Check
If you can't spell SATURDAY or remember to run a spell check -500

There should be like a -20 for atheists. People freaking hate us for some reason.

Anonymous said...

They hate you because you look for any chance you get to state you're an atheist.

I got +65 :/

Social Autism -20
Immobile -30
Disfigured -40
Disease -50
Deaf -50
Black -100
Retarded -200
Trans -500


Your view of the universe is extremely skewed. It's easier to be deaf and disfigured than black? It's easier to be retarded, diseased, deaf, and black than transgender?

Are you kidding me?

Is Jewish considered white? (+100) Or is it non-white (-100 +25 = -75).

I would say -75, because I've been mistreated for being Jewish.

Not surprised that whoever made this chart wasn't smart enough to spell "Saturday" correctly. My score was -35 BTW.

This is dumb. Reminds of the old game "MASH".

Whoever made this got bashed in the head by something heavy.

-5 here.

- 500 I guess I break the bank/

Damn, I got -1150. There's no hope for me.

I'm a gay transgendered Buddhist scientist moving to Africa. At least I'm not blind and retarded.

Don't know how to spell weekdays -2000

MaSh said...

Jews are more privileged that Christians? What history books are you reading? And why the separate category for black Jews? We love Sammy Davis Jr!

Lance said...

45? Not bad. Ha

This shit is just fucking retarded.

Better off disfigured than female, lol...

This is downright stupid. Sweeping generalizations are bad enough, but trying to quantify privilege at the same time is about as non-progressive as it gets. If you are the type of person constantly looking down at people and telling them to check their privilege, perhaps it's time for you to check yours.

Anonymous said...

Is this for children? The 'privilege' that this is supposed to calculate appears to be race based generalizations. That's racist.

According to this chart, being poor is better than being a woman.

I'm guessing whoever made this chart always had food to eat and fuel to heat their home.

An impoverished, disabled straight white man has more privilege than Oprah Winfrey, you heard it here. This is a good poe if it's satire.

Forgetting 30-45k -10

being white in Minnesota isn't a privilege because everyone's white!
being white in Miami isn't a privilege because you are the only one and you won't be able to get a job without speaking spanish!

OK, so "Disprivileged" is a word according to mirriam-webster.com. "Unprivileged" is more common, and "Underprivileged" is the most common (and it's what Firefox spellcheck thinks that's what I meant with "Disprivileged").

The chart is a great idea, but it definitely needs version 2.0 with this and the corrections ("Saterday"? "Norwar"? Really?) mentioned above.

Yep. My gorgeous junk should count for something.

'Social autism' is a 'freebee'? What the fuck do you mean by that?

I live in Mexico. Let's talk about the real privileges.

Can you read? +300
USA citizen? +1000
Own car? +100
Own detached family dwelling? +300
Have hourly job? +50
Salaried job? +100
Own computer? +25

US poverty line family of 4 $22,350
every 1000 less, -100
Your country at war? -200
Totalitarian govt? -500
muslim majority? -300
member, non-muslim minority? -300

Do all you 1%er's get it? If you live in the US at the poverty line, you are better off than 96% of the world's people. So quit smiveling.

This chart fails fairly hard in the profession area. Look, a bunch of degreed fields!

Why does it say "Norwar"? They're not at war?

-5! This explains everything!!

I'm guessing from your comment that you yourself fit none of those categories and therefore cannot speak for them. Don't pretend to know the hardships of a trans person when you can't possibly imagine what it's like to live as one

I like the unsubtle suggestion that Jews control the world.

So, it is better to be a black, gay homeles person in the US than it is to be a white, straight plutocratic person in Africa?

Anonymous said...

I got -55 wow

According to this, being a female plutocrat is worse than being a middle class male. Seems legit.

Anonymous said...

This is a piece of crap. UK is better than US, Norway, Netherlands and Sweden.

Anonymous said...

I'm a Saudi with $10 trillion net worth ... being a plutocrat doesn't help me though, since I live in the middle east, so my net privilege is -550 without taking the other measurements into consideration.

So it's better to be a 5'5 man with a 9+ face than it is to be a 6'1 man with an ugly face. Interesting.

This proves true what I've always believed. Facial looks are more important than height regardless of sex, provided one avoids extremes in either direction (i.e. a 5'2 man or a 6'3 woman)

Middle East: -600

What the fuck?

Anonymous said...

Being bisexual is just as stigmatized as being gay. Saying that we have 'straight privilege' is bullshit.

Anonymous said...

Pretends to be universally applicable: is blatantly Eurocentric and Americentric.
All of Africa and all of MIddle East lumped together and given horrible scores despite some high development scoring countries there (well off, stable etc) Why? Is it all the black and brown people bringing the housing prices down?! Nothing exists in the Americas except U.S.A. and Europe gets four sections to itself.
No section for First Nations, who are just lumped in with the other misfits as "Other"
No linguistic or linguistic-cultural minorities.
Mental illness non-existent. Blind is worse than immobile, disfigured etc.
Who even cares that some people don't want to have sex? Can you pick them out on the street? I can't.
Scientists, civil servants and teachers all worse off than the unemployed? Not coincidentally, most of those people (except maybe police) are extremely liberal, whereas poor people are often more conservative. See a pattern? Why not just put "LIberal -1000 points, Conservative +1000" it's pretty much how they see it.
