I don't mean to beat you about the head with my feminist stick, but take a whack anyway.

Whack!

You don't opt for anything. Nobody's going to be putting you in the stirrups or probing you.

You would opt to accept and support her decision. That's what you meant to say, isn't it?

And if you love your daughter and you consider her to be a real person, not an accessory, you accept that she is capable of making that decision whether she's 14 or 40.
