This survey i trust - Apple perceived as gay-friendly
A colleague of mine, SE, who knows full well that i'm slightly biased when it comes to technology (and no, we're not just talking my love for C# here), sent me a link today for an article published over at Gizmodo Australia.
When i saw the link i nearly fell off my chair, laughing, as there's both an internal joke here together with an opportunity to seriously poke some fun at Apple/Mac users :)
I should mention that I have absolutely nothing against the homosexual community...so take note that this is NOT a gay-bashing article, nor does it in any way inflict a lesser opinion on those with that sexual persuasion.
Here's the article:
In a recent survey, 757 gay and *** participants were asked to rank companies by their gay-friendly factor. Apple came in first place among tech companies with 39% of participants strongly considering the brand to be gay-friendly. Among all brands, Apple came in second behind Bravo (who dominated with a rating of 52%). But alas, things didn't turn out so well for our friends (we can no longer be seen in public with) at Samsung.
Samsung ranked in the lowest tier of companies with a scant 4% of the polled population feeling the brand is gay-friendly. That puts them right between Quaker (5%) and Cracker Barrel (3%). Technically Samsung tied with Wal-Mart and Frito-Lay.
By the way, we attempted to Photoshop the gay pride/rainbow flag onto the old Apple logo, only to find that, duh, their original logo almost did the job for us. Read more about that here
