Took this Cancerfeed test to check my privilege, after clicking a thread that had a Cancerfeed link.


Only 35 points of privilege wtf?

Srsly, wtf, who stole my points?

Spare some privilege, sir?

figured it being from Cancerfeed I'd have at least 90%... one day... one day..



How Privileged Are You?

I don't know how to post a screenshot but my results were...


You live with 31 out of 100 points of privilege.

You’re not privileged at all. You grew up with an intersectional, complicated identity, and life never let you forget it. You’ve had your fair share of struggles, and you’ve worked hard to overcome them. We do not live in an ideal world and you had to learn that the hard way.


Who'da thunk it???

I'm whipping this out the next time someone tells me to check my privilege lol.

Definitely deduct. I mean... it's not my fault that I am too lazy to do it. Had I not been groomed to be this way, there wouldn't be an issue.

Good One!!, but no test for me. I would say on the personal scale of 1-10 i would be say around 4 . Not privileged in family status, money, business etc, but in personal life status. Generally happy, enough money, and capable of a reasonable life style for my family.......

Compared to the vast majority of this planet I live like a king tapping away on my iPad in bed waiting for my coffee and cereal to be delivered to my bed sidelol:

31!

Gotta say it was a LONG quiz. I saw the scroll bar had like 20 feet left and considered quitting. Plus some of the phrased Qs were making me cross-eyed.

My "privilege" I thought all us right leaners were assumed to be privileged, the test must not be asking the right questions.. Perhaps it should of stopped at are you white?

well i thought it would have been higher frankly

You live with 64 out of 100 points of privilege.

you’re quite privileged. You’ve had a few struggles, but overall your life has been far easier than most. This is not a bad thing, nor is it something to be ashamed of. But you should be aware of your advantages and work to help others who don’t have them. Thank you for checking your privilege.

to be fair, some questions i didn't know how to answer, there was one that said "All my jobs have been accommodating of my religious practices"
I'm an atheist, so how the heck do you even answer that? if i don't check it, then it sounds like i'm being oppressed for a religion i don't follow, if i check it, it sounds like i actively pray to the...gods of atheism at work?

To the OP.

This is so heavily slanted towards American-style discrimination that a non-American (as is I) cannot really complete it because the questions are on American hang-ups. I scored 46, and it says...


You’re not privileged at all. You grew up with an intersectional, complicated identity, and life never let you forget it.


This is gibberish. I am quite privileged to live in a liberal society where issues raised are not really a concern. I am very sure of my identity.

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.
