This thing went downhill as soon as the very catchy "Man of Science vs. Man of Faith" title was changed.

You guys carry on.

I also prefer the title "Man of Science vs. Man of Faith" but rubyfruit76 thinks it's sexist. I want to satisfy everybody but it's impossible.

I don't think that "Man of Science vs. Man of Faith" was sexist, our generations didn't create those words. this is just the way that things are named, when we use words "husband", "female", "women" we give to them a whole different signification, these words can't be considered as sexism presently, if you want to fight against sexism presently the is a ton of neologism and abbreviations like "styfe" that clearly have a sexist and inappropriate connotation to censure the primary title of the poll was absurd.

1- I think that the reference to Lost is lost, by the fact that the title is changed and that you have  characters outside the "Lost-Universe"

2- I think that the poll was very catchy at the beginning with only two options, but I also recognize that a ton of person has an interpretation that is not listed on your list. 

3- The title right now doesn't represent the poll anymore, the polls contain 5 options, and your title is announcing only 2 of them.

4-  Finally, I believe that this poll suggestion is ruined, and I don't see any way to make it great again.

You can note the "Lost" reference in the intro without having a title that dismisses the biggest social minority in the world. Of course, you can also keep it as it is but I will always oppose it as it is now. I do not at all like how sexist this board has become recently.

I couldn't agree more. The sexism against heterosexual, "cis"-gendered men is out of control.

This needs serious discussion.

I'm more moderated on that Abi, I don't believe that there are sexism on this board.

Of course, there are some things to improve in both ways.

But presently no one is against equality.

What I dislike, however, is that we are fighting against irrational causes like modifying the titles of polls or unharmful words because they had a whole different meaning 50 years ago. 

We aren't in the 60s and in the 70s, some people are still acting like we are.

I think that we should concentrate on more rational battles like terminate every sexist keyword on the Database. 

What is going on right now, I like some people call it "positive-discrimination", it is the act of purposely discriminating a social group to favorize a social group that was discriminated in the past.

As I see our world:


Past: (On equal skills "non-minority" is favorized)
lower for social minority/ higher for "non-minority"

Present: (On equal skills social  minority is favorized) 
higher for social minority/ lower for "non-minority"

Future (On equal skills, you roll the dice)

equal for both


That means that presently we are giving more jobs to social-minority if their abilities are equal to "non-minority" to compensate for the deficit faster.


What I'm suggesting:

Past: (On equal skills "non-minority" favorized)

Present/What it should be: (On equal skills, you roll the dice)

Future (On equal skills, you roll the dice)

The advantage of that way as I see it is that you aren't disadvantaging the "non-minorities" that are searching for a job.

 That means that when the older generation will retire you would get complete salary equity strictly based on abilities without amputating the current students at university.

Since you got an option for "Both", you should put an option for "None".

Also, make sure to lowercase the "O"



"Man of Faith"

Serious suggestion: Heath Ledger's Joker, tagged "Nihilist" or something similar.
