I get that but why would they be fair more extreme on the subject?
Because it makes them feel holier.

That's the purpose of a poll. To validate your point.  :)
You are making a point? I thought you were trying to understand a culture you are not a part of.

Is that what they are taught growing up?

We can discuss anything & everything (in fact we do), but most, if not all, of these magazines have rabbonim guiding them.

Seems not to be so:

Then itís time for them to retire


Mishpacha and Ami cater to a very wide spectrum of people, from Mizrachi to Satmar. Who should their Rabbis be?

If they were taught that it was by women. I did not find that my daughters were taught that extreme is better.

I didn't start the thread or the poll. I am trying to understand a culture. Remember understanding is a benefit but don't take that to mean I am agreeing.

I believe many things in religion is sexist. Is that something you can understand why?

Is it possible by what they see and hear every day is why they are more extreme.

Of course, but their being extreme is not limited to this. These same families are typically extreme on countless other things as well.

sexism - prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.

So the environment they grow up in has a large impact.
This all goes back to the OP. Not seeing girls/women in papers/magazines/books has to affect boys/girls growing up.

Judaism doesn't discriminate against women, it discriminates between men and women.  Not being able to discriminate between things that are different is usually considered a problem.

Yes it will have an effect. Everything has an effect. My opinion is that this is a better effect than the effect from the way some secular publications depict women.

Many girls and women will tell you there are no women or girls in magazines because it's 'not tznius' because that's what they are taught. They don't really know what they mean even.
