    Too many bloody questions but I gotta say out of the 1st 10 odd questions I checked only the 1st question and then another one about being the only one of my colour (in this country no of course I'm not the only white guy walking around :rolleyes:).

    But I found myself not being able to check the one about facing discrimination and hatred for my race (always called white boi) or being mocked for my accent (I'm a Brummie) and **** like that. Not that I care :rofl: but the quiz is rubbish!

    I'm interested in how these factors are decided...
    I also forgot to add if you’re cis (when you choose to stay with the gender you were born with).

    This is because white, heterosexual, cis males are not oppressed. Please tell me how you would ever be racist, sexist, transphobic or homophobic to someone who is white, hetero, cis and male.

    Thing is, you can’t! You’re privileged, use it to your advantage by helping minority groups and whatnot. Just acknowledge your privilege and stop trying to be oppressed.

    You're quite privileged. You've had a few struggles, but overall your life has been 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.

    I'd just like to point out that being in a minority group doesn't mean you're opressed. Being gay in New York and Texas are two very different experiences, for example. I personally haven't faced any significant issues because I'm bi or trans. Perhaps the odd comment, but mostly people are lovely about it. That's probably because I go to a good school, live in not a progressive area but one where people keep to themselves, and I don't really go out much. On the other hand, a white Christian living in an area dominated by Islamic extremists (I mean extremists, not any old Muslim, nothing wrong with the many peaceful Muslims) would likely face some opression. While some groups are more likely to face oppression in the UK, it depends on your personal life circumstances a lot.

    By people like this:



    Funnily enough, going by the SJW logic - I'm basically more privileged than that gay son of Will Smith lol.

    White cis male who goes to private school and goes abroad every year, this thing is a bit weird. I guess it's because I've been attacked because of my religion, discriminated against because of my race and my sexuality has been used to attack me.

    1. 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.

    I'm thinking it's only high because I go to a private school.

    There should only really be one question to this

    "Do you have access to a computer with internet, and are therefore able to access this quiz? Congratulations! You are privileged!"

    Actually by your definition i'm oppressed. But I shouldn't have to tell you that. That is the biggest load of *******s i've ever read on the internet.
