The Department of Defense (DOD) recently sent out a survey on “workplace and gender relations” to active-duty service members that asks about their attitudes towards women, which some service members are criticizing as “inappropriate.”
The roughly 40-page voluntary survey, sent out December 9 and obtained in full by Breitbart News, has a section called “Social Perceptions & Experiences” that lists a series of statements about women that appear aimed at gauging attitudes within the military towards women.
Respondents are asked to indicate the degree with which they agree, ranging from Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Slightly agree, Slightly Disagree, Somewhat Disagree, Strongly Disagree.
Some statements appear aimed at gauging whether the respondent has more traditional views about women.
The statements include: “Many women have a quality of purity that few men possess,” “Women should be cherished and protected by men,” “Women seek to gain power by getting control over men,” “Every man ought to have a woman whom he adores.”
Another set of statements include: “Men are incomplete without women,” “Women exaggerate problems they have at work,” “Once a woman gets a man to commit to her, she usually tries to put him on a tight leash,” and “When women lose to men in a fair competition, they typically complain about being discriminated against.”
