University of Akron Survey About Men

The University of Akron in Ohio is conducting a survey of men in order to find out why men are less willing to ask for help than women are, and if their reasons are related to social class and their views on masculinity.

Here’s the link if you want to take part in the survey.

The survey takes about 30 minutes to complete. All participants are put into a drawing for a $50 and $70 Amazon gift card.

I’m slightly disturbed by the nature of these questions. It appears to me that they’re trying to find out more than just “why men are less willing to ask for help than women are”. If that were the case, why is the first question about gay marriage? And no, I don’t have anything against it. I just don’t like where the questions are heading.
Thanks but no thanks.

Agree with Derek M.

One of my majors in college was sociology, and the survey feels more like the UNICRU survey (which I hate with a passion, btw), where the idea is to weed out strong responses – or isolate them. Also asking a question nine times in nine rephrased ways doesn’t seem productive toward garnering objective answers. But hey, I’m up for free Amazon.

I agree gentlemen, the questions seem to be worded in a manner that is fishing for proof of a pre-determined outcome, to provide “credibility” for a specific agenda.

I could read a book about this without finding such real-world appaorches!
