    I have the same Sicilian background and while I won't say I looked like Sophia Loren at 10 (at least above the neck!) I was well developed. Given my mother's very protective and frankly rather repressed nature, my main reaction to the situation was a deep sense of shame, which haunted me for many years. This was a very long time ago, 45 years. Maybe it wouldn't bother me so much if I was that girl today.

    The reaction of some men and boys at the time could indeed be described as "predatory", and if anyone thinks otherwise pardon my French but they're full of shit up to their eyeballs, and the rest is concrete.
