Those are disturbing answers, but it is worth noting that that that survey was from 1978 and it may not be a good reflection of modern opinions and values. Additionally it's a bit unclear whether the survey used good scientific methodology, and even how seriously the people filling out the survey took it. There are always going to be some teenagers who will give the worst answer just for shock value.

Have a look at the results from the following questionnaire, when 1/3 men and 1/5 women believe rape is legitimate under a wide range of conditions, rape is unlikely to be reported.
