Twitter Is Losing Its Mind Over This Really Sexist Poll Conducted By The Times Of India

Who cares about facts when there's outrage to be outraged?

Earlier today, The Times of India conducted this poll on Twitter.

POLL: If MBA entrance exams were made less math oriented, would more women become business managers?

Unfortunately, what a lot of users didn't realise was that the question was based on a quote given by the ICICI Bank managing director and CEO, Chanda Kochhar, in a speech earlier.

"The MBA entrance exams are so quantitative-oriented that it keeps out more and more women from joining the MBA classes. If we were to make the entrance exams more all-rounded you could see more participation," she said.

But who cares about facts online, right?

.@timesofindia Where is the option to hit "I find this question extremely sexist"?

@timesofindia One of the stupidest questions ever. Right up there with "if humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?".

Hey @timesofindia,thanks for keeping your sexist agenda alive. Shame of you for assuming women are bad at math.

People eventually started replying with sarcastic polls of their own.

.@timesofindia do you think handler of this account failed his Maths class ?

@timesofindia Do you think the journo who framed this Q knows anything about MBA?

If more people subscribed to @timesofindia ToI-let papers for morning 'ablutions', would India conserve more water?

Oh, ToI...

The fact that this comes from the Times Of India doesn't even surprise me anymore. https://t.co/513aYtgoB3
