Letter: Why publish sexist comments?

On Sunday, May 6, The Forum and Inforum published a candidly sexist letter by Michael A. Ross of Hawley, Minn. While I support freedom of speech, I’d like to know why The Forum would choose to publish something that fosters stereotypes and discrimination. It’s disappointing, and I’m sure many of your readers would like an explanation.

Now, I should get back to work – but please don’t tell Ross, since I’m not a homemaker, mother, nurse, teacher, secretary or cheerleader. Oh, and I live in 2012, not in 1950.
