"A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations"


The Modesty Survey is out. It's a poll of Christian youngsters, mostly young men, conducted under the auspices of The Rebelution: A teenage rebellion against low expectations. The soft bigotry of low expectations is everywhere, apparently. The browsable results of the survey contain gems like this bar graph:

A girl's underwear should never show:

The bars show 18 "guys" strongly disagree and 621 strongly agree with the statement that girls' underwear shouldn't be on display.

The survey also allowed text responses, including this one from a beleaguered Christian gentleman, age 24: "Sisters in Christ, you really have no concept of the struggles that guys face on a daily basis. Please, please, please take a higher standard in the ways you dress."

What would this poll have been like if conducted on Reason readers?
