If you don't mind, look through the chart and add up your personal score? Discuss the results (or not ... depending on your mood post-calculation...)

A little help on the Gender category: I believe that CIS means that one is a male who holds the traditional male behaviors and vice-versa. Someone who scores +20 are men's men while +20 for women are lady's women. Trans score of +10 is where males mostly hold to the traditional male roles but still have a bit of femininity to them. The closest thing I can think of is metrosexuality but that just be a oversimplication. And vice versa for women being a girlish tomboy might earn a person a +10.

Am I close on that understanding?


I scored 75 points.

@tsarstepan,
I missed the fine print about taking 20 points if nonreligious in the US.

My adjusted score is 55. Good gravy. Rolling Eyes

@tsarstepan,
I scored 200 but since I’m gay I have to take off 150 points. So my score would be 50. Cool

I scored 65 because Canada is not on there so I went under the USA mantle. If that doesn't count, then I'd be 45. My husband is 110 without picking a country. And that's with deductions for not being handsome and being a scientist.

Who in the world made this up?

@jcboy,
I came out -10, which sounds about right, sort of a balance right now, but with the factor of being non religious in the US, am knocked down to -30. Anyway, not privileged.

@tsarstepan,
60

Makes sense roughly.

I think Canada is likely up there with Europe, or at least as good as Australia.

80, because I'm an engineer. (Who gives people deductions for being scientists?)

Jews get the super high ranking? This is bogus.

Minus 85. I knew I wasn't privileged, but I get the feeling that there are homeless people who are more privileged than I am.

What exactly does privileged mean, btw?

He's a injuneer; you're a teacher, if I've got that right.

@Ceili,
I think it is minus 15 for doing it on a Saturday or Friday night. Probably means we have nothing better to do than this test. No social life.
I did it now this Sunday morning. Last night I watched TV - no social life last night. So I kept my 15 points.
See how unfair life is.

For the spelling, probably.

If you are a blind trans from the Middle East, you cannot be seen on the scale..

@roger,
Actually, he's in technical sales, so I put down "Technology," but that only accounts for 5 points. Being a straight, white, able-bodied male in the US gave him most of those points. But...privileged? That's a bit of a stretch.
