Why are parents OK with Guys liking girls but not girls liking guys?

To make this more clear, I just want to know, why are some parents or people in general harder on the girl for having a crush or dating a guy than they are with guys having a crush or dating a girl? Is it because girls can get pregnant?

  • It's because adults already now that guys are more likely to abuse than be abused.
    Also, the girls who would be considered dangerous to date are dating anyway.

    • What do you mean by the second thing you said? Maybe I'm reading it wrong..

    • I meant that there are girls that are abusive partners and don't need parental protection, but they are usually dating anyway, no matter what their parents say.

  • Cultural and social norms
    Boys should be sowing their wild oats before settling down
    Girls are little princesses that must be protected
    It is a somewhat antiquated morality but it is still persistent

  • Guys can be dicks and tend to hurt peoples feelings. Girls are usually more thoughtful and kind so parents think that a girl would be good for their son but they think the same way about the girl liking the guy

  • Well I think the risk for a girl in a romantic situation is a bit higher. They contract STDs easier, they can get pregnant and let's be honest there's a lot of scumbags out there. I always had to talk my sister though some bullshit a dude who was just trying to fuck her would say/do that genuinely hurt her and that's kind of hard to watch. (A lot of douchey women to though I don't want to seem like I think men are the only problem I'm just discussing the worst case scenarios.)

  • A dad likes it when his son finds a girl he likes partially because it's a father son bond (or how my dad is) although a dad doesn't like it when his little girl is taken away... clique but true.

  • Probably related to possibility of getting hurt or pregnant. It's not really fair, but parents are pretty protective in general
