More thoughtless BBC insensitivity

Remember those stupid sexist remarks by a football manager last month? His remarks were followed up with a ridiculous question on Newsround's website. (see blogs for 14 & 16 November)

The BBC World Service is no better. It has been asking stupid and insulting questions. They've spent money on a survey of teens in London and other cities around the world, which asked amongst other things whether women should have the same rights as men, and whether homosexuals should have the same rights as heterosexuals.

I won't taint this blog with any survey results. Suffice to say that sexism and heterosexism prevalent on BBC children's programmes may be partly to blame for the apparent less than wholehearted support for equality amongst British teens.
