Hitting girls, forcing sex "not a big deal": boys

A new report has found that:
  • nearly one in seven teenage boys think it is OK to make a girl have sex with them, if she has been flirting with them.
  • one in three young people had witnessed their fathers being violent towards their mothers
  • one in every three boys believe it is not a "big deal to hit a girl".

Link to the ABC summarising the report.
