So how strange it is to hear my old college friends talk about raising their daughters. These men and women, now in their 50s, take a critical eye to the boys who come calling at their door. They worry about their girls listening to provocative songs and wearing revealing clothes. They seem to have forgotten that we grew up listening to Rod Stewart sing "Tonight's the Night." The men especially are protective of their girls. Having known them in their youth, I know these guys were not always proper gentlemen. Maybe that's why they are so strict now.
