Do you think it’s fair that my brother got to start dating at 16 but just because I’m a daughter I have to wait? I tried talking to my parents but they won’t listen.
It’s not a question of fair. It’s about your parents’ feelings about the situation. In an ideal world there should be no difference between when a son is at risk versus when a daughter is at risk. Unfortunately, this is far from an ideal world. Women get attacked much more frequently than men. I’m guessing you probably think your parents don’t’ trust you, but it’s actually that they don’t trust the world around you. Even now as the father of an adult daughter I am more protective of her than of our adult son. Thank them for trying to protect you. They love you very much.
