I was physically ill when I read this article. I don't have kids, but if I did, I'd sit them down and talk about this whole escapade. And if I had daughters, I'd enroll them in karate and buy them pepper spray.

Of the 200 Boston youths (ages 12 to 19) surveyed last month, 51 percent said Chris Brown was responsible for the incident, 46 percent said Rihanna was responsible and 52 percent said both were to blame; 52 percent said the media was treating Brown unfairly; 44 percent said fighting was a normal part of a relationship; and a “significant” number said “Rihanna was destroying Chris Brown’s career.” Women blamed Rihanna as much as men did.

Umm. I have all sorts of problems with this. 46% said Rihanna was responsible? How? I'd like to hear the argument that it was somehow her fault that he punched/bit/choked her repeatedly. 52% said the media was being unfair? Nothing has happened to Chris Brown. NOTHING. Michael Phelps smokes pot after winning 9 gold medals and he loses millions in endorsements. Chris Brown assaults Rihanna and they get together for a duet? I don't get it.
