Typically parents protect their daughters more than their sons, yes. I grew up in a house with 3 older brothers, I am the youngest and the only girl. So I was definitely more protected. I couldn't do a lot of the things my brothers were allowed to do at the same age. It sucks, but seriously, it's for the best. Though it may not stop the potential attacks, abuse, pregnancy, etc. it can hinder them. I have 3 boys, and I am VERY protective over them. I don't have any girls but I think (or hope) if I did I would give them equal treatment as far as what they are allowed to do. Like if my boys were allowed to go out with friends without supervision my girl(s) would be allowed as well, with an exception, they would have to have at least 1 older person (doesnt have to be a parent a sibling would do) and it would have to be a bigger group of friends. As I said though, even with protective parents things can happen. Especially if the parents over-do it and cause the girl to rebel. That can cause all sorts of problems. I didn't rebel too much, most of my rebelling was dressing goth and dying my hair. Other than that I listened. Even with them protecting me like they did I was pregnant at 16 1/2. I was raped and beaten by a bf when I was 14. I was a virgin until that point. So yes, appreciate what they are doing for you, it really is in your best interest.
Yes. For several reasons. Girls can get pregnant. Girls are at higher risk of being sexually abused, molested and rap.ed. Girls are at higher risk of being physically abused. On average girls are smaller than guys, which means it is harder for them to defend themselves, and in a lot of cases they are just more likely to be attacked because they look smaller. As for the having to pay part, well yes, but child support is determined by how much income the person is making. Who is going to make a 14 year old boy pay child support? However, a 14 year old female is the one who is stuck with the child if she decides to keep it. Also, in the real world, it is nice that some mothers want to raise responsible sons, but at the end of the day, the boy's involvement is only as much as he wants it to be. Lots of men dont pay child support. Lots of men are not involved in their kids lives and lots of men abandon their kids. That's just the reality of it.
Yeah, I'm kind of thinking so.. probably because most guys are tougher then girls and they can defend them selves better then a girl can defend their selves, and also some people are afraid to hurt some guys, and aren't to hurt girls, so girls could get hurt easier. When it comes to dating, the girls the one that has to carry the baby around in their stomaches for 9 months and deal with that, and sometimes if a guy gets a girl pregnant the guy takes off, so our parents are worried about that. I can't think of another example right now, but there's probably lots.
Guys still have a kid at the end of it too. I know that if I had a son who got someone pregnant I'd sure as hell make sure he was there for it. Sure, girls have it worse. But responsible parents ensure that their son is educated in "the business" and is safe, and if the worst does occur, that he's ready to help that child.
Guys can walk away at any time, all they have to do is pay, a mother is totally different, she has to be pregnant, give birth, make the desicion of even wanting to have the baby, get bad looks from people, get called degrading names, & looked down on. yeah, the girl has it way worse.
Guys may not b able to get pregnant but they can get girls pregnant and u will have to pay the child support, so I think they shud b treated and protected just the same, but in real life the girls r more protected
heck yes!!! girl i feel like my parents hate me because they are way over protective of me.. and then my brother on the other hand doesnt get tht much attention
Regardless of gender, parents should protect their children until such time that they are matured enough to know what is good and what is bad.
technically no, but they can get girls pregnant.. and any responsible parent would want their son to look after his offspring, no?
Yeah, have more risks out there than boys do. Just a simple fact.
guys cant get pregnant.
This is true...
