These are great (the pic is from the internet):



And CheckMyPrivilege.com now has a Bill Split Calculator:

CheckMyPrivilege.com is proud to present our new Bill Split Calculator! Never again will you have to argue with your friends about how much the more privileged should have to chip in for the pizza because of their oppressive positions! Simply have your friends all Check Their Privilege, save their scores on the results page, and use the Calculator to determine how much they each owe! It couldn't be simpler!

I don't know, I am so privileged I never even have pizza, it is black caviar three times a day for me and only in the company of equally privileged people ).

I guess you'd get free pizza very often if you used their bill split calculator. I am 240 Shitlord and would probably end up paying for a lot of pizza ).

Ha!  I should use that bill calculator at work.  I could get free pizza everyday of the work week.

I wasn't aware there was a need to ask my kinship. Hahahahaha!

I had Extremely Oppressed with a score of -210. Although I'm privilege.

This doesn't help anything. It's not even funny. Coming from a white, hetreosexual, able-bodied person. :P

I'd go further than saying that it is not funny and say that it is extremely triggering and offensive and a thousand newly born bunnies definitely died in agony somewhere because I posted this. But in my defence: it wasn't me who posted this, it was my privilege. I am so privileged that I never talk, whenever I open my mouth it is always my enormous privilege talking. I have been taken over by my privilege but the real oppressed me is still there deep inside struggling to get out and be heard.

If you agree with the first three things you said, why did you post it then?

And since I know nothing about you, I don't know how "privileged" you are.. in terms of this anyway..

Oh I don't agree at all, I was joking about it.

Sorry, why I shouldn't post while buzzed! That's closing soon.. our living situation is finalized now and I'm getting full time at my job, so I have to quit fucking up.

Thank you for being understanding! I've been ultra sensitive lately and I hate politics right now.. I'm planning on learning a bunch before the next election though.. I really should've voted in the primaries.. I'm mad.. not that one more vote would've gotten Bernie in, but still. I'm so emotional because of my apt being basically robbed but that's over and done with now.. no excuse to bash around in your journal tho :l

It is OK, I am easy going about politics and I can get on with people with the views opposite from mine without descending into hysterics. I laugh at both extreme left and extreme right and do not get both of these camps. I would gladly follow people from both of these camps though because I am still interested in their views even though I do not support them. Good luck learning more about the US politics, it is certainly worth doing that before starting to talk politics. And feel free to come and bash around in my journal but do know that I will just laugh at you if you do ).

LOL, fair enough. I mean, I know enough to know I'm a democrat, but i want to learn more about if voting for third party is relevant enough or not.

I would have voted democrat in all the US elections I can remember to date except the last one. In the last one I wouldn't have been able to vote at all unfortunately.

Yeah, I felt that way myself. I didn't really want Hillary, but I REALLY didn't want Trump.. once again, didn't matter :P But I can say I voted for Obama twice, and I voted against Bush in one election although I really didn't know much about the other guy.

I refuse to accept that the UK is 'Europe: Meh' if the Netherlands is 'Europe: Top'. THEY ARE TECHNICALLY UNDERWATER, DAMNIT! :-D

Interestingly, by changing my species from 'other' to 'human' I move from -20 Disadvantaged to 105 Shitlord.

I'll bear this in mind, although I'm still not entirely sure I wish to identify with the human race.

I guess some things are what they are regardless of our wishes ). Please do not go down this route to disassociate yourself from the rest of us: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/transgender-woman-dragon-lady-chops-8798301
I am 240 Shitlord, which means that I just have to shut up and pay for the pizza forever I guess.
And I also have beef with the Netherlands being in "top Europe" with us. They don't look privileged enough with 45K GDP per capita (UK is at 40K) when Norway is at 71K, Denmark is at 53K and Sweden is at 52K. They are also not northern enough for the cool rich club.

Goodness me. There is someone who is certainly sticking to their one idea.

As a Briton, I obviously must believe that being British IS a privilege regardless of vulgar measures such as GDP :-P

Yes, indeed, isn't that the definition of BEING British???

I think it's a requirement of being a post-imperial nation. I bet the Greeks felt exactly the same in the Roman Empire!

And as non-Briton I think that living in Britain is very cool and that's why I chose to live here unfazed by the vulgar and boring statistics. I even do not care about Brexit that much (my privilege is giving me this false sense of security I think).

Hello! Your entry got to top-25 of the most popular entries in LiveJournal!

You only got 20 something comments for this.. I find LJ ratings rather confusing.

I guess 20 out of 30 of us who are still here is a lot ).

It really just surprised me, lol. I didn't mean to sound rude. I'm like in 600 place and I've only had this journal for two months and have been bad about commenting lol..

From: [identity profile] topum.livejournal.com
Yeah, this place is really small now I guess and it doesn't take much to be at the top but because it is so small the top is meaningless. Also, they rate you not only by the amount of comments but by the number of views too, there are entries with not more than 10 comments at the top very often. Being at the top here doesn't mean much and that's why I came here and not on Instagram or Facebook, this place is so small that it is free from all the people who just want to get popular (not that anything is wrong with it but it is impossible here, the place is too small) and all the commercial bloggers who want to advertise to you, etc.

Are you more for just promoting your photography? I would think you would rather try to make it on instagram if that's the case?

Date: 2017-01-05 09:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] topum.livejournal.com
No, my photography is not professional (I do not know anything about photography, I just point a and push that button) and I am not interested in promoting it. I am also not interested in ever becoming a photographer. I am not promoting anything and that's why I am on LJ and not on any of the big social networks instead. I like LJ because most people who are here are just interested in journaling and not promoting anything (because it doesn't make any sense to promote anything here, it is too small and you would be better off almost anywhere else).

Oh, I was completely mislead about you.. I thought you were all about photography. My phone is shitty or else I'd take more pictures. I definitely have been a very blunt journal writer, and I plan to be more detailed in daily life. Maybe that will bore people and interest some, but I need to expand my writing.. I want to be a writer, ultimately. And if I continue at this job, I would have the time to do it..

I think you will ind your readers.
Mine includes a lot of pictures because I am very visual and because I hate writing (and am crap at it even in my native languages, let alone in English). We are all different here and everyone finds their readers. Good luck with your writing, I look forward to seeing more of it.

So everyone has to agree with, or relate to, every comment that you make or you're "privileged"?

Date: 2017-01-05 01:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] topum.livejournal.com
I don't know how it works but I suspect that the use of "privilege' like everything else gets abused sometimes. I am so privileged though (240 Shitlord) that my privilege has probably blinded me. I am thinking about starting a group to help people who are oppressed by their privilege find their true oppressed selfs.

It probably works a lot like the old joke..."A 'racist' is a conservative who's winning an argument"

I have been called a bigot by the left and a self-hating liberal by the right many times. None of these camps are going to have any success in silencing me or bullying me into their sad camps by calling me scary names though. I just laugh at them and do not give a flying fuck.
