(I apologies in advance for the ridiculous inaccuracy of this test)

I decided to do a wee bit of a contest here. This is the test where people could "check their priviliege" ( http://41.media.tumblr.com... )

The one with the lowest, highest or most inaccurate score wins!

My privilege is -75 ( mostly for being a black Muslim ಠ_ಠ)

Wow if that was too long I don't know what you're doing on this site lol

My score was 125. However we're all subtracting 15 for doing it tonight and I think my eccentric views put me at a disadvantage so I'm saying 100 even.

- Europe is more privileged than the U.S.? That doesn't seem right.

- There are numerical errors all over the page :P
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

This test automatically assumes male privilege...

I'm a cis white straight male from America. There were some others too, but that whole chart is entirely BS.

For instance, a poor white man would be ranked as significantly more "privileged" than Beyonce. Patently absurd.

Could be worse....

a middle eastern blind transexual homeless Christian living in the middle east.
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

This test is a joke. No, literally, it was made to make fun of Tumblr's score of virulent SJWs. I got a -60
