I got 63/100. The gender ones really brought it down, if I was a guy it would’ve been way higher
I got 31/100. It was brought down by all the gender/sexual orientation question, and the questions about depression/suicide, ect.
The poverty stuff brought it down a little.
31/100- This thing told me I’m not a person of privilege. I’m calling bullshit. I may be a bisexual female living in poverty struggling with depression, suicidal ideation and addiction but don’t let that fool you, I am still a person of privilege by virtue of being white. You can still struggle and benefit from privilege. You give my same circumstance to a black person in this country and their outcome would be very different than my own.
I got 67 but being a fifty something straight white male I’m surprised it wasn’t higher.
I was raised pretty poor. Government cheese was a thing, kids. It’s gross. I didn’t go to college. My parents were afraid of student loan debt. I’ve lied about my beliefs and said i was Christian to not have judgement. I have been shamed for my job. Not farming-everyone seems to think that’s “cute”. I have gone without medical attention when I had to choose between a doctor and rent. I didn’t go to the dentist for 35 years. I was a very young single mom. I have lived in “ethnic” neighborhoods because white neighborhoods were too expensive.
But, now, I for sure live differently. Things have always either gone Even Steven or gotten better for us. It has been hard, but not impossible or out of the question that our situation could improve.
This is what privilege IS.
Ya, I’m very privileged but the mix of things on this list means the numbers come out deceptively lower than what I feel is reality.
43/100 here. While I’m somewhere between upper-middle and middle class now, I grew up firmly below the poverty line. I’m privileged at hell now, but the bits that happen while growing up are harsh. I’ve lived with illness I couldn’t treat, I’ve had to lie about my beliefs, I have some disability… basically, even with the benefits of being a white cisgendered male, growing up kind of sucked and this test skews heavily toward things that happened in the past versus the present.
