So, there was a poll done recently in Canada about what men and women found “immoral”. ‘Cause that’s not too subjective a word, right? It was done by Leger’s Marketing and here are some of the little gems that it found:
A recent Leger Marketing poll asked Canadians what behaviour they consider immoral. The results:
Pedophilia: 81 per cent (men 78 per cent, women 84 per cent).
Extra-marital affairs: 74 per cent (men 68 per cent, women – 81 per cent).
Prostitution: 68 per cent (men 59 per cent, women – 76 per cent).
Alcohol abuse: 65 per cent (men 59 per cent, women 70 per cent).
Sexual relations before age 16: 65 per cent (men 61 per cent, women – 68 per cent).
Pornographic films: 58 per cent (men 46 per cent, women – 68 per cent).
Blasphemy: 51 per cent (men 45 per cent, women 57 per cent).
Abortion: 34 per cent (men 35 per cent, women 33 per cent).
Homosexuality: 31 per cent (men 37 per cent, women 26 per cent).
Divorce: 17 per cent (men 19 per cent, women 16 per cent).
Contraception: eight per cent (men nine per cent, women eight per cent).
Ummmm, wtf? Can someone explain to me how 16% of women and 22% of men in this poll do not find pedophilia immoral? Are you effing kidding me? Don’t even get me started on the abortion and homosexuality parts of this little horse and pony show.
Now I know, statistics can be whatever someone wants them to be, but the ick factor on this one just bothered me. I’m gonna go knit now. My yarn is never creepy, or worried about morals, or immoral, for that matter!
