    I read it. I got 30 out of however many that was. I'm a straight, white Mormon male.

    So hooray? I'm now part of the people who can say, "Check your privilege" to people who would score at least 31 or higher?

    I don't know. Can you clarify what the purpose of this was? What are we supposed to get out of it?
