    Apparently I'm the most privileged: 79/100. Well I am a white heterosexual male after all...

    You live with 38 out of 100 points of privilege.
    1. 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. 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.

    I got 70 out of 100. Quite privileged. Probably accurate - though there were no questions about parents' education which is very important imo

    A lot of the stuff that reduced the score came from being desperately poor this time last year and from having an encounter with some anti-white racists one time.

    I could have maybe added on 10 to my score, I'm not saying it's completely unrepresentative. My family has been below the poverty line for most of my life. My parents have been for years renting and have few assets and are unsure of their future housing-wise as they (and, hence, I, outside term-time) might have to go somewhere else within a few years. I have the maximum maintenance loan (not grant) because my parents cannot support me at uni, which will be a ***** to pay off. Right now I have no job and do not have enough money to pay all my rent, hopefully they will let me pay it a little bit late from uni loans. I had definite social problems when I was young, being upset and bullied a lot and was said to be on the Autistic spectrum (never officially diagnosed, I think, for whatever reason - not great because I really feel I have more difficulties with so many "normal" things than everyone else). Furthermore not being entirely straight puts you down a lot of points.

    I'm most definitely not gay, but I would not describe myself as fully straight really.
