AU: Backlash prompts St Kevin’s to ditch respectful relationships project

Article here. Excerpt:

'The survey included statements on wellbeing, such as: overall, I am a failure; I sometimes cheat; and I do not like my parents very much.

Other statements on boys’ attitudes included: acting manly should be the most important goal for guys; getting made fun of helps guys become tough; being thought of as gay makes a guy seem like less of a man; and if a guy has a girlfriend, he deserves to know where she is all the time.

The boys were also asked how often their father took on household responsibilities such as cooking, cleaning and parenting.

They were asked if they had been insulted or threatened on social media and had made sexual comments to a girl they did not know, and how often they had been drunk, taken drugs and been in physical fights.'
