    Wow, you really know how to use copy /paste eh

    But yeah as I said, perceived disadvantages being used as advantages...
    Most of those things don't put a person at an advantage or disadvantage. They're just petit excuses.
    dude your privilege is showing

    this chart is made for people like you, you just don't know what it's like to be disprivileged, that's why you need to check it

    Did I say copy and pasting made it invalid or meaningless?
    The fact that it's invalid and meaningless makes it invalid and meaningless.

    You live in the UK and have classed yourself as 'affluent'. Sounds terrible.

    hehe, ive seen this test before on tumblr.. and I always score awefull

    the whole, gay/woman/trans/ugly/not-rich/mentally ill/learning dificulties etc..

    It all stacks up

    -- though it just shows how futile it is, that I dont actually consider myself that unprivalidged Im at a uni I like, on a path to where I want to go.. I have good friends who accept me, and have generally led a very good life

    -- but I do see the point of this and Im loving the guy above trying to claim that his privilage doesn't exist.. come back to me when you cant walk donw the street without having abuse shouted at you.. you cant go into a significant number of careers, due to the way you look, half the world is unwelcoming to you, half this country thinks its all your own fault.. etc.etc.

    There's something wrong with the system because some people are more disadvantaged than others?
    People in the UK who say they're disadvantaged should really look at the third world to put it into perspective :rolleyes:
    Yes, I know, that's kinda the whole point... People in the third world should receive all the same rights and privileges as we do.

    Surely there should be something on the attractiveness scale between 'attractive face' and 'overweight'...

    I actually got -695. Being born in the middle east really seemed to have brought it down, as well as being in the "other" category for race.

    I think the country is about where you live now, rather than where you were born/originate from.

    Would still be in the very dispriviledged category, but I think it's a silly scale.
