Why is female sexuality so dangerous?

I mean this question rhetorically. I know the answer (SEXISM) but I mean, really, why? Why, why, why?

You have no idea how many adolescent girls I have worked with in recent years for whom the biggest problem in their life is their parents, and the biggest source of conflict is their sexuality. So many of them wind up living with other relatives because their parents can’t “control” their children and can’t accept that maybe control isn’t the thing they should be looking for in the first place. I’ve seen it with teenage girls who are coming out as lesbian, teenage girls who are coming out as bisexual, teenage girls who are choosing to be sexually active with boys who are of a different race, religion, or who are older, teenage girls who are not sexually active but the minute they hit puberty the assumption is they will be and want to be.

When will parents learn that there is a difference between CONCERN and CONTROL? You can and should be concerned about your teenager. You cannot control them.

/End rant.
