WARNING: Experts fear that binge drinking will turn your teenage daughter into a "violent and promiscuous" monster.

A study of 15- and 16-year-olds has found that girls are more likely to have tasted alcohol than boys, putting them at risk of having unprotected sex, unplanned pregnancies and contracting sexually-transmitted diseases.

One in five female teens who consume alcohol at least once a week say they have got themselves so drunk they have had sex they regret, while almost 40 per cent have been in a fight.

This "study" from the always eye-opening Daily Mail ends with a quote from a guy named Don Shenker, who represents something called "Alcohol Concern," which states:

"There is clearly a link between young girls' binge drinking and unplanned sex as well as alcohol-related violence. It's about time ministers took a tougher stance on the causes of teen girls binge drinking."


While binge drinking can be a problem for teens —and perhaps people should be taking a "tougher stance" on addressing the causes of teen binge drinking— I'm not sure the "girls" part is absolutely essential here.

Still, you should probably hide your daughters. Just in case.
