I know I can’t be the only one who experienced this
When I was in jr. high/early high school I was a nerdy, not very attractive kid. Not to say that I’m still not nerdy or that I’m hella attractive now. I just learned from a lot of What Not to Wear and fashion magazines how to make myself look professional and such.
I was a big target for the dumbest breed of bullies who’d throw stuff at me or push me around and the worst was when the guys would fake-ask me out or fake-whistle/cat call at me because “ha ha it’s funny because I’d never really ask her out bro.”
To the point where even now I kinda assume that any kind of male attention, whether rude cat calls or just mild flirtation is the ironic “ha ha” kind. Not that I’m getting any male attention besides the occasional whistle (and why do people think that’s okay? I find it very rude.)
Yeah I don’t know where I was going with this one either. I guess I just wanted to know who else has experienced that kind of bullying.
