Oh and don't think I blame girls for feeling like they need male approval. I think it's normal (or at least up to a certain point)
P.S. More girls of the last couple of generations were raised by single mothers, or with fathers that were rarely in the picture. If a girl doesn't know what a man looks like, or didn't have a solid relationship with her father, she often can seek out male attention. This is only part of the factors, but biological differences are also a HUGE reason as to the difference between men and women.
