Nearly half of Norwegian men disapprove of gay sex, a report commissioned by the country's children and family directorate has revealed.
According to the study, 40 percent of Norwegian men said they believed that sex between two men was wrong, while 23 percent said that they were "disgusted" by the thought, and 16 percent said they would even find another seat on a bus if they knew they were sitting next to a gay man.
 
"We should have zero tolerance for such attitudes,” Mari Trommald, the organisation's director told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK). “It is not acceptable to discriminate.”
