UK: 1 In 7 Believe Beating Women Is Okay

Lightly, I'm sure...

Unfortunately, this survey does not distinguish cultural or religious beliefs. I would suspect that 1 in 7 is referring to 4:34.

The stereotypical Britain as one who is overly polite and passive is now a thing of the past.

One in seven people believe it is acceptable in some circumstances for a man to hit his wife or girlfriend if she is dressed in “sexy or revealing clothes in public”, according to the findings of a survey released today.

A similar number believed that it was all right for a man to slap his wife or girlfriend if she is “nagging or constantly moaning at him”.

The findings of the poll, conducted for the Home Office, also disclosed about a quarter of people believe that wearing sexy or revealing clothing should lead to a woman being held partly responsible for being raped or sexually assaulted.


Enjoy your decline, UK.
