The Stampede hired Illumina Research Partners to conduct a market research study. While it mostly gauged people’s knowledge and opinions of the Stampede, one section asks opinions on a number of statements including, “The only acceptable definition of a family is a husband, wife and children,” and “Some jobs are best suited to men. Women should just accept this.” …
Human rights lawyer Mellissa Luhtanen said the two statements can be taken as a slight against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community as well as women in general.
“They are outdated, discriminatory and irresponsible,” she said.
I’m quite sure there’s a fairly large percentage of the population that agrees with both statements, but knows they can’t say anything for fear of being chastized by the likes of this lawyer.
In any event, why not wait for the results before getting offended?
Brigitte can’t resist: Or why not suggest questions of her own? Like “Some jobs, like shopping for shoes or bearing children, are best suited to women and men should just accept that. Do you agree?”by
