Why are teenage girls not taken seriously compared to boys?

People accept boys in school having fantasies about teachers and older women but they don't accept girls having fantasies about older men, and try to deny it when it's the same.

Why the prejudice?

  • Many people have the idea that young teenage girls are "innocent" and are more worried about relationships than with sex fantasies. And while many girls are physically innocent, few are mentally/emotionally innocent as teens today, if they ever were. Young kids are exposed to all kinds of "adult" things at much younger ages today - when I was a teen in the 80s, you had sex magazines, and porn existed but was largely VHS rentals or in big cities going to porn theaters, which few teens had access to. Today, every teen has a $500+ pocket computer and can access any kind of porn they like at any time.

    But the idea that teen girls are innocent persists, and you having sex fantasies goes against that narrative, and some people can't deal with having their narratives shattered.

    • I agree. It's so silly because its a known thing that young women like older men. Even girls, there are stories everywhere. People also know girls fancy their teachers. There is so much evidence, yet some people still deny it. Some people even think girls start being attracted to much older men after they turn adult which is wrong. These fantasies start at the beginning of puberty. Some people just don't want to admit it.

  • You are right.

    But, I don't have an answer for you with any certainty. One guess is a continuation of the idea (wrong idea) that women don't have the same desires as men, etc. It's wrong and sad but it persists.

    Again, you're right, and I don't have a good answer why or a solution.

  • It has to do with jealousy this is why men do not accept it.

  • can't speak for other but it's perfectly acceptable to me :)

  • No, it make’s perfect sense. Females hot puberty before, but are much more prone to manipulation, forcible rape, etc especially at a young age. They get pregnant, their life is just about over before it started.

    A young boy is physically stronger than an adult female on the most part. Forcible rape won’t happen too often, unless by an adult male.

    Either way, if an adult does it with a kid, they should be put to death.

    • Well I disagree about the manipulation part, boys are just as prone to it especially because they develop mentally later. And depending on the boy, he might not overpower an adult woman It really depends on the people involved. there's no point in rejecting that girls have the same desires as boys do though. That's natural and common.

  • I don't know.

  • I agree that it isn't fair. Both parties should be allowed to talk if one is accepted more than the other. Isn't fair for a girl to be called crazy but a guy a hero by their peers for talking about similar things

  • Why should I mind if she imagine older mens? It's none of my business.

    • I mean people try to reject girls find older men attractive the same way boys do older woman. They try to say these girls are in the minority or that they are not normal
