Sorry, but that's not a survey on what I think about senior services for glbt folks. It felt more like a money grab.
I'm sorry you felt that way, Ben. I didn't think of that possible response. I took the survey, and I happen not to have donated to SAGE (at least not yet), and I just told them so. I also told them what would make me more likely to donate.
I think that a lot of the survey was geared towards figuring out what would draw out more support (read: financial) for their organization, and I think they are wise to ask those questions. Why shoot in the dark if you can simply ask?
Sorry it irritated you.
