Unfair curfew

When I was 16 I had a strict, conservative Dad who imposed regular curfews. Mostly I acquiesced but sometimes I'd try out some sass.
Him: I want you home at 11:00 p.m.
Me: But -
Him: Home at 10:30.
Me: Hey! I just -
Him: Be home at 10:00.
Me: (Certain I would floor him) Why? I could have sex during the day too, you know.
Him: (Not even looking up from his book) I'm not concerned with your virginity. I'm concerned with your safety. Home by 9:00.
Sass never was very effective.
