When Vice President Mike Pence famously commented that he will not dine with another woman if his wife is not present and won’t attend events where alcohol is served, he was mocked by media outlets as a controlling Christian weirdo.
However, a new survey from The New York Times vindicates the man, proving that his behavior and attitude are completely normal.
According to the data, nearly two-thirds say people should take extra caution around members of the opposite sex when they’re at work. A majority of women, and nearly half of all men, say it’s unacceptable to have dinner or drinks alone with someone of the opposite sex who is not their spouse.
Newsbusters points out that the poll proves that Mike Pence isn’t the weird one — “the poll provides the ‘context’ that the liberal media is out of step with the public.”
Feminists say that informal societal rules squash women’s ability to advance in business, but most women are cautious around men, and it’s not because they’re prudes.
“It’s the potential for damaging sexual-harassment allegations, for a he-said/she-said battle when there are no other witnesses,” the report pointed out.
Times writer Claire Cain Miller’s takeaway from the poll findings was this: “Men and women still don’t seem to have figured out how to work or socialize together. For many, according to a new Morning Consult poll conducted for The New York Times, it is better simply to avoid each other.”
