This is an alarming story. The subject video claims that roughly 1/3rd of our population of teenagers have experienced dating violence. It also suggests that rape increases with age.

Frankly folks, this video just irritates the hell out of me. They make claims, add suggestions, but do not provide even the slightest amount of detail. If you are going to conduct a study, collect data, and draw conclusions, you need to show what the data collected actually says.

I want to know what percentage of teens at what age experienced what type of violence. I want to know if drugs or alcohol involved. I want to know if interracial relationships were part of the study. I want details.

My recommendation is that you take this information and hold it in the background until somebody actually conducts a realistic study and provides adequate details.
