Parents can consent and then changed their mind at any time...
All it takes is one pissed off parent or family member...
Also, if there was an example of a young lady nearby who was known to be sexual, I was told 'she is a slut', 'dont be like her'.
Grown men who want home dates without ever meeting, yet they would be very upset if thier daughter wentto a strasngers home (male).
I dont think sexual tensions between the sexes will go away, until all young ladies are given the same pat on the back for sexual conquests as the sons get.
ALL got snarky at the thought of men wanting me for sex.
I was warned that men only want one thing from me..careful..."men are dogs, I should know, I am one"....
As long as young ladies are made to feel they need protection of thier 'sex', this will always be an issue.
My whole life, whether it was uncles, older male cousins, my brothers and my Dad...
In fact my Mom tried to make it so us girls had the same freedoms and 'rights' as the boys had, but she was fighting a losing battle against the men in my family. However, it did not do me any good when I was first becoming sexual, and I lost alot of good years worrying too damn much about being thought of as slutty for wanting and enjoying a perfectly natural act.
Entering my thirties I changed alot, dropped the old attitudes I had been carrying..it took me til I turned mid thirties to realise I had been fed a bunch of malarky.
By the way, Bill's son,dated/married the 13 yr.old's Mother."Keepin it in the Family".
A boy can move out of their parents house at 18, a girl at 17. I've had to deal with this myself about a year ago when I was taken to court.
Parents will always have a different view about their children. And men wonder how women turn into princesses....."you're not good enough for my daughter".
