I got a 38
I have a passport and lived overseas for a number of years. as a white westerner, tons of questions nuked itself in regards to not being the main
demo, experiencing racism, experiencing issues with my "religion" (nearly got attacked in a bar in egypt when I said I was agnostic atheist and some
very insane ranting directed at me), etc.
I imagine a lot of the low scores are a bit hair splitting and exaggertating, but legit I am seemingly underprivlieged..school of hard knocks and all
sorts..oppression olympics frontrunner I guess.
this test is nonsense. it only demonstrates that everyones life experiences can be significantly different regardless of your gender, upbringing,
race, migrant status, etc etc etc...you may start out with some disadvantages, but the rest is up to you..
And actually, the more disadvantaged that paper suggested I was, was a direct result of me becoming more advantaged..as I said, I owned a
passport..travelling to foreign lands to achieve racism, bigotry, etc is actually..a outcome of hard work and success to get there.
Am I privlieged?....sure..absolutely..because I worked to be...not because I was born into it..and their test shows how broken it is, because if I am
considered underprivileged, then they just simply have it wrong.
