One "accident" can change your life forever. Sad to say a boy can walk away if he wants, but the girl has to make the decision and deal with the consequences the rest of her life. That's why we'd rather you just stay home with us until you're 30.
Because you are a girl. My parents were like that too. Boys can protect themselves better than we can. They are being over protective because they love you and don't want anything to happen to you. In the long run you will appreciate them. I know!!
Boys are just cooler..that's pretty much it hahaha nah they just love you and wouldn't want anything happening to their little sweet pea. Plus there's no point in dating those guys right now just focus on you and being successful :))
The sexist double standard rears it's ugly head again. It most likely wouldn't matter if you and your brother were twins. You might very well get treated differently just because you are a girl. You must be "protected" but still get all the responsibility of any "bad" behavior. Life ain't fair and sometimes parents aren't either.

It's just old stereotyping at it's worse. It's the way it's been since the history of parents. What happens to the girl their boy is dating is her parents problem, what happens to their daughter, well; you get my drift. Ugly, and unfair, but a thought is a hard thing to kill. I always told my sons, before they left the house. Treat her like a lady and if you don't plan to be kin to her the rest of your life, keep it zipped.
With a boy they only have to worry about one thingy but with a girl they have to worry about a whole world of thingys if you know what I#039;m saying lol but I read that your 14 and your brothers 16 well did your brother go out at 14? I know I wasn#039;t allowed at 14. I guess you just have to realize that your brothers older and he gets to do stuff before you. I have a brother and we have the same age differance and it took me a while to realize that he#039;s going to get to do things before me, like date. and trust me you don't want to date 14 year old guys, I mean what will you do it's not like you can drive or are old enough to go out alone.
