I live in France, I’m 16 yo, and i’m tired of patriarchy. A year ago, trois guys of 12-13 yo blocked my way, pushed me when I pushed them away and told me I had a nice ass. Three months ago, a guy 10 years older than me stared at my chest the entire time I was on the subway, whispering things. I got the fright of my life. A friend told me she was touched by a stranger when she was 10, and she still thinks about it every night. I’m tired of my fear and my shame. I’m tired of crying sometimes because i’m not pretty enough and because nobody will never find me attractive. I”m not an object. I’m not a piece of meat.
