Catcalling A Teenager

My birthday was 20 days ago. since then, i’ve been catcalled for over 10times.
they’ve shouted things about my butt, for example ’i could fit in that’ ,(i suppose you get what they meant), and a lot of the times ’that’s a good a*s’. sometimes they don’t even shout anything, and they just stare at me. glazing my body up and down and licking/biting their lips. that’s even worse than the catcalling, because i can only imagine what they’re thinking about.
now you’re probably just thinking ’well that is horrible, it happens to a lot of women’. yes, it happens to WOMEN, but the part that i left out is that i turned 13.
that s**t gets to you, altough they’re just words, it still disgusts me that those people sexualized my body at such a young age. sometimes i can’t get sleep because of this, or i cry myself to sleep.
none of my friends have had this happen to them. is there something wrong with me?

There isn't a thing wrong with you, sweetheart. The state of society is what's wrong. I was what was called "an early bloomer" & so I too was getting unwanted & inappropriate attention when I was your age. I can remember how uncomfortable I felt & I'm sorry you're going through this.

Do you have an older female family member or close family friend you can talk to? What you're experiencing is, unfortunately, quite common & it helps to talk with someone who has been there. Plus, she might be able to give you tips on how she handled it.

These experiences, especially in public, can be embarrassing & possibly even humiliating. But please remember dear one- NO ONE gets to define who you are & what you're worth. That is YOURS to determine & no piggish person gets to take that away from you. You have a magnificent mind behind your beautiful face & a tender female heart. These are what truly matter. Be safe, stay innocent, enjoy your youth, & keep your chin up.

Well do you mean apart from not really knowing what age or sex you are going to write about being at any given point in time?

Aw honey there's nothing wrong with you! Don't you think for a second that it's your fault men are treating you this way! You keep on being yourself and, hard as it may be, try to ignore them.

Also, and I hate that I have to say this but I do, be safe. Try not to walk alone, especially after dark. Always keep a cell phone on you, and if a man ever makes you feel uncomfortable for any reason tell a trusted adult, or call the police.

You are a strong beautiful woman! Embrace it! And don't let those bastards get to you.
