Boys in this situation have no good choices. If they fight back, they'll be crucified for "hitting a girl." If they don't, they're wimps who got "beat up by a girl." The main difference between this and the unknown number of similar cases is that the girls were dumb enough to publicize it.

I realise that there is a lot of truth to what you are saying, but assuming that the boy has the physical ability to fight back, he could do two things:

1) Try to hold them off without actually hitting them.
2) Run away

Of course it depends on the exact situation - but there is a difference between being beaten up by two girls (implying helplessness), and two girls trying to beat up a boy - in the latter case the boy might still be hit/injured, but there is a slight difference.

Not sure what my point is.
