Sleepovers

What to do?
One of my DDs is currently identifying Bi though I suspect will decide she is gay eventually.
We have always had a 'no boys in bedrooms' rule (5 DDs between us).
DH has decided that she cannot have friends over to stay at all now. My take is that she should be able to have friends over: she had a friend over last week and they slept on airbeds on the living room floor. DH still cross about it.
I do get what he's saying. If she were straight we wouldn't condone a male friend overnight. She's under 16 btw. Previously a sleepover friend would have stayed in her room, so I'm already treating her differently.
Advice please.

A friend is a friend.

If you have suspicious stick them in the living room for the sleepover and do periodic checks on the way to get water/go to the toilet during the night etc

A friend is a friend. I understand what you're saying, but coming out can be difficult and you wouldn't want to isolate DD from her friends by saying she can't have them stay. Would you find it more difficult now to allow her to sleep over at their houses? I think you should just have a chat with her - is she open about being bisexual with you? I think you should be honest with her about your thinking, she probably noticed you're already treating her differently and would appreciate you being straightforward with her.
