    115.

    Although these things aren't added up towards on another. For example, being good looking is generally more of an advantage for women than for men, whereas being tall is more important for men than for women. Being gay may put someone at disadvantage in certain communities and certain areas, but in showbiz the gay community is almost as strong as the Jewish one - they help each other. I don't think a person from France is less privileged than a person from the UK either. I wonder who made this.

    It is rather daft.I got 165, only minus point being that I'm female...I agree being short doesn't matter if you're female and looks advantage a female more than they do a man.

    I really don't see how being blind warrants 550 points less than being retarded...

    Being Jewish / Christian equates to being more privileged than an Atheist?

    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.

    Edit:


    High 5!
    Same score.
    woop!

    yay! for being disadvantaged! :P

    + 140, interesting that 'tall' earned me ten more points though, it's certainly an affliction on public transport :P

    I put 0 for the 'attractive' bit cause I'm not a narcissistic twit.

    I got 40, although where I live, earning 30k a year isn't really considered poor. Plus I didn't know what to put for the attractiveness part; what if you consider yourself normal?

    I'm bisexual technically, but only do it with guys, so gay?

    If bisexual: 15.
    If gay: -145.

    Some of the scores are majorly off though. I lose a tonne of privilege for being short, but I gain privilege for being a transsexual (because I pass as male fine)?!
