    29/100.

    As someone who is white, cis-gendered and a baptised Catholic-turned-agnostic (all things the checklist touches upon in terms of privilege), I'm surprised I got that low, to be honest. :holmes:

    I got 72, do I win?

    Although I have a feeling that not knowing what 'Sallie Mae' is is more to do with not being American.

    The Widnes Tesco is much bigger than my local Tesco. This test does not account for your Tesco while at Dad's privilege. :noway:

    The strange thing is everyone I know who lives in Widnes shops at the Morrisons. :erm:

    While it is great because it means you practically have Tesco to yourself when you go, it's also a tad concerning. Is there something about that Tesco Widnesians aren't telling us outsiders? :ninja:

    Also, I don't have a Morrisons near me, so you're merely emphasising your supermarket privilege here. :hand:
