  •  I hear you. (9+ / 0-)

    I was attacked at age 12 for extreme, and apparently antisocial, development -- but not by boys, by high school girls on the bus.  I got punched in the breasts and told "You think you're pretty, don't you??" every afternoon until I quit riding and made up a story to tell my mother - something about how I just loved that three mile walk.

    I was hounded by older boys, too, once by a college student when I was thirteen (God, I was so desperate to get home!), and heard my classmate's mother mutter "slut" when I walked by her at eighth grade graduation.  Me.  Who wasn't even allowed out after dark.  

    I've laughed for years at girls who weep for A cups.  No doubt they have their own purgatory, but the last thing I wanted in this world was to be sexually interesting to ANYBODY.  I walked with my  shoulders hunched over for years.
