Of course not. No one is these days. But when you consider who does what jobs at home, can you honestly say that everything is equal? If you're honest with your answers, we might find out something interesting...

Of course, everyone professes to be opposed to sexism in all its forms.

We are!

But maybe there's something to be said for the possibility that men are better at some things than women and vice versa.

Well, we will know what you all think en masse, but not you in particular. Phew!

We look forward, with interest, to seeing the results!
