I have been honked and yelled at in the summer while walking on the side of the main street since I turned 12.

    Sadly, this is something “normal”… I had experienced these type of things since I was 12, too. It is really awful, especially at that age, when your body changes all the time and you are trying to cope with those changes. I remember I suffered a lot, I have always been a bit shy about my body, and being honked or yelled at in the street made me feel even worse. And no matter what I wore (big tees, baggy trousers) to cover my body, nothing changed.
