You live with 44 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.

"I am not nervous in airport security lines."

Does it count that I was nervous when I was in line for nearly two hours and nearly missed my flight?

I didn't understand a good third of them, mainly because of the double negative shit. "Never have I ever not written a confusing question"

It is not your responsibility to educate those with more advantages than you, but if you decide you want to, go ahead and send them this quiz. Hopefully it will help.

Nailed it?

I have never heard this statement: "You have been randomly selected for secondary passport control."

As a brown man, I was doing well until the question "Have you ever been told you're 'attractive for your race'" and I was like "Hah, no I haven't... but for reasons other than racism.... "

I have also never been told "I sound white" but I sometimes see it in people's eyes when they first meet me in person after having talked on the phone. My name is Gary too, not a hindu name or anything so that adds to the shock. "Oh you're Gary."

I was also stopped at the airport once by some security woman with a huge rifle, asking me stupid questions. First it was a standard "Where are you travelling to today... business or pleasure" and I thought it was pretty innocent. Then it was:
Her: You're travelling alone? (in an accusative tone)
Me: No, I'm with my friends
Her: Then where are they?
Me: Over there

We had literally just got out of the airport scanner bit that you have to go through one at a time, so no fucking shit I was on my own. You're not allowed to go through security in a group you racist bitch. My friends were like "What was that about" and I was like "I was randomly selected..."

I always thought from pop culture that it was a thing that happened more in America, and unfortunately more to those wearing things like turbans, never expected that kinda shit to happen to me in Heathrow Airport, 30 minutes from the place where I grew up and lived for the first 18 years of my life.

I still got 57/100.

To be fair sounding white isnt limited to people of color. I thought iggy azalea was black until I saw a picture of her. So the road goes both ways.

If anything, this stupid ass bs just proved how much of a strawman the "privileged white male" thing is. You'd be hardpressed to find anyone who is privileged by these criterion. Everybody goes through hardship to some extend. It's just that some people are lil bitches about it who sit around crying all day.

everytime i see a cop car no matter if im doing the speed limit I freak out and look at my rearview to see if he's coming for me.

I don't, in fact in high school before the midnight movie, we would pull into the police station parking and smoke a joint.
Turns out that's the safest place to burn one.

it's a very limited and flawed quiz because most of the questions make a lot of assumptions. all the college related ones for example. the assumption is that if you've never taken out student loans it's because your rich af and don't need them. but what if it's because you are disadvantaged enough that it's not feasible even with loans? what if travelling period is too expensive so you've never been to an airport? what if you've travelled internationally because you were seeking asylum?

not that these things can't be indicators of how much privilege you have but it is telling that the entire "buzzfeed perspective" on privelege is based on airport and college experiences and shit like that (aside from a few questions), as if those things are just a part of everyone's life by default. obviously this goes without saying.

edit: actually the biggest flaws are with the mental health questions. what if you're undiagnosed cause stigma and all that, or cant afford help.

You live with 1 out of 100 points of privilege.
You're underprivileged. The world is not a fair or ideal place and you know that because you grew up with several identities that the world is not kind to. You had a lot of challenges to overcome simply to get on a level playing field with most people in the world. It is not your job to educate the world about its injustices, but if you choose to, go ahead and send them this quiz. Hopefully it will help.

I'm bisexual and I've never been oppressed for being bisexual. But I still get lower points for being bi anyway? Why does it assume that such a scenario simply cannot exist?

The exact same thing can easily be said for just about every single question on this quiz.

I am privileged as fuck! I live in a million dollar house a block from the beach that my mom essentially gave to me.

It's the same philosophy I took with bullies on the play ground, appearing unafraid make them uncomfortable.

If you haven't been discriminated against for being hispanic, then yes.
