Inspired by the epically poor worded main poll on "surrogate parents" - do you think it was more likely a mistake or an attempt at shaking things up on a Sunday morning?

I went back and read the poll to see. What do you dislike about the wording.

Yeah. I don't see it, either. I think someone is reading too much into it.

Last I looked, there were a few debates over whether the term "surrogate parent" was meant as someone to handle the educational decisions of a child w/o a guardian or where the guardian can't be found OR if it meant a womb rental.

Ah. So, not that it was offensive. Just ambiguous.

Yes, and bec the wording of the main polls are usually better at that stuff I thought it could be them having a little fun. I'm surprised at people seeming to be a little upset at my poke of fun poll, but oh well. 😊

Ah, I'd never heard that term used in place of "legal guardian," but I guess it could be confusing if you had. Gotcha.

What was wrong with the wording?

I think it was just unfortunate working with no intention of anything else.

Many of the main polls show a lack of insight into issues and seem superficial. This is one.

Which panders to the ever growing majority of extremist right wingers on this app.

I just think it was poorly worded without any intent otherwise.

My apologies, I was just trying to have fun. I didn't think they were up to something nefarious.

Oh. Well. Haven't these people ever heard the term "surrogate" used before in this context? Sounds like the trolls are out.
