And there is a prime example of what I would call sexism. It is absolutely unfair to judge the intent of every teenage boy based off of the behavior of those that you knew.
Also, just how do the actions of these theoretical daughters hinge so strongly on what the majority teenage boys are assumed to be like? Every male between the age of 13-19 could be scientifically proven
to be interested in sex to the detriment of everything else, and I still wouldn't expect it to rule what my daughter does.
Why are the daughters being viewed as such usable beings here? Unless, god forbid, force or abusive coercion enters into the equation, our daughters can control of what they do, and are capable of making the choices they see as best. The better we as parents equip them to make good choices, the better off they will be. Standing guard and controlling things takes much needed power away, and that I find that prospect very scary.
