The weird thing about this story s the disconnect between the headline and what the story actually says.

Headline - "Girls Commit Dating Violence as Often as Boys"?

Girls are the perpetrators of some form of dating violence nearly as often as boys, surprising new studies show.

More girls – 43 percent – than boys – 28 percent – reported committing an act of physical dating violence, said researchers who are presenting their findings beginning Wednesday at the American Psychological Association’s annual meeting. Slightly more boys – 23 percent – than girls – 18 percent – reported perpetrating at least one act of sexual violence.

Shouldn't the headline read "Girls Commit Dating Violence Twice as Often as Boys"?
