Because as they say “You are a girl, you cannot be allowed to do that”. Fathers have a duty to bring confidence in their child, doesn’t matter if it’s a girl or a boy. To love them and to support their decisions is a father’s duty as well. But then this is a society, having a numerous type of people.
