One of the creepiest parts about dealing with puberty as a young woman is the many ways the world sexualizes you and victim blames you for the leering eyes of men. Sadly, this form of misogyny is so deeply entrenched that many families police their daughters' clothing and bodies as a way to "protect" them. But in actuality, these rules and mindsets contribute to a culture of victim-blaming, self-objectification, and deep shame.

In a recent post on the Am I The A*shole subreddit, a young woman asked if she was wrong for calling out her mom's new policing of her clothing.

AITA my mom saw porn in dad's youtube history and asked me to choose my clothes better

OP started the post by sharing that her parents are generally bad with tech, and she's often called upon to help them figure stuff out.

My parents aren't good with technology and find it difficult to do basic stuff on their phones. They bought my younger brother (let's call him brandon) a phone recently and since they don't know anything about parental controls, my mom stays concerned about what he uses it for.

Tbh, he's just a lot into games and music and not a lot else.
