13-Year-Old-Girl Boob Shamed By School District Full Of Morons After Being Sexually Harassed By Classmates

shutterstock_98359094If you are a lady person reading this, chances are you might have breasts. Or at one point you did have breasts. Some women don’t have both breasts due to breast cancer, which is a totally different subject. My point is, some of you have breasts and I am here to tell you that there is nothing wrong with your breasts. I don’t care if they are small or big or droopy or different sized. Your breasts are totally great and wonderful and no one should ever tease or mock you for however your rack looks, but someone should have told the Riverview Gardens School District of St. Louis this before they gently suggested a young lady get a breast reduction to stem the bullying and sexual harrasment she has received due to her breast size.

Now, I’m not an educator, but I love teachers, especially the good ones, and just as a human person who is not an educator I would think that the correct response to the bullying of a girl due to breast size would be to maybe address the bullying issue, and not suggest a young girl get a dangerous elective surgery that can cost $7,000. But that’s just me! Don’t ask me, I don’t make the rules! No one here but us non-body-shaming chickens who think that a girl should have to get surgery just so she isn’t teased!

From our pals at The Daily Mail:

A Missouri mother was shocked to hear an official at her daughter’s school district suggest that the 13-year-old get a breast reduction surgery to stop other classmates from bullying her.

Tammie Jackson, of Moline Acres in the suburbs of St Louis, said that her daughter, Gabrielle, has been sexually harassed by fellow classmates at Central Middle School because of her large breasts.

When the mother called the Riverview Gardens School District to complain about the bullying, she was shocked by the advice she has received.

According to Jackson, a  district representative told her that while her 13-year-old daughter could be transferred to another school, her breasts are so large that she will always be teased. ’It makes me feel like now you are telling me it’s my fault, it’s God’s fault the way he made her,’ Jackson said.

 

Yeah Tammie, what were you thinking giving birth to a daughter with ample breasts? Didn’t you know that by having this daughter who would one day have a large chest that you would be subjecting her to bullying and teasing when she was older? Sheesh, talk about bad parenting. Next time, make sure your girl daughters are all a respectable size that will never be teased, which is no size. Girls will always be teased for their breast size no matter what size they are, so why not instead of telling Tammie to get her daughter surgery, they tell her classmates to stop being such raging body-shaming assholes?

      Oh this poor little girl, I feel her pain. I too was picked on for my ample breast size in middle school, and believe it or not my parents got the same basic response from officials when they called to report it: “Well, maybe your daughter shouldn’t have such large breasts/wear clothes that show how large they are.” *facepalm*

      This mom should sue or something, that’s completely ridiculous. The school officials are supposed to PROTECT students from sexual harrassment through dealing approprautely with the OFFENDERS, not victim-blaming the person they’re harrassing.

        I swear my best friend in late elementary school was constantly getting cited for dress code violations by the staff at our school because she went through puberty so much earlier than everyone else and, you know, gained a lot more than most women ever do up top and in the back. I know that sounds crazy but there was only one place we could go to get the specific uniforms we had to wear (the uniforms changed once we hit high school) and they only carried certain smaller sizes in that type of uniform since I guess they assumed that girls wouldn’t have breasts in 4th grade. But guess what? She did. Boy did she. And we girls used to talk all the time about how ridiculous it was that it simply didn’t occur to any of these adult women that maybe her shirt wasn’t so tight because she wanted it to be and maybe it really was true that her boobs would cause the buttons to pop open pretty much as soon as she buttoned them. People can be so weird. And just so adverse to logical thinking sometimes.

        I had a similar thing happen to me in middle school: In grade 7 I was a B cup and none of the other girls had hit puberty yet, so a lot of boys teased me about my big boobs. What did my teacher say when I told her about it? “Put on a heavier sweater so they can’t see them.” Like it was my fault I blossomed early. UGH.

      This actually reminds me of an old experience back when I was like 9 or so,
      there was this school function and there were a few girls dancing and some of
      the boys there had somehow procured a camera and were taking snapshots of the girls as they spun, since their underwear would become visible during the dance. Eventually they’d teas the girls about it, about showing too much. What do the girls do in response to this? They flat out walked up to them and lifted up their skirts! They showed them that they could not make fun of them and that the fact that they were seeing them in what typically would be considered a “compromising” pose had actually no power to shame them whatsoever. They took back their power in a single action. It was such a powerful gesture and it shut the kids with the camera down so completely that it has stayed with me.

      If your kid is teased because of their bracers or funny nose or weird haircut or whatever, you tell the kid to not care what those who tease say, that’s pretty much all you can do. You can’t catch the teasing kids red-handed and kids who would actually bully someone don’t respond to stern talks from teachers or parents of the kids they enjoy teasing so much. All you can do in those situations is to tell your kid to bear it and give it no heed cause it is meaningless.

      I don’t see how this is any different because the subject of teasing is this girl’s chest. Yes, this flavor of teasing contains elements of sexual harassment and stuff…but it still is teasing and you tackle it just the same as the other kinds of it.

      If anything, the girl should act proud about herself, not be shamed by her natural form but rather embrace it and show the bullies they can’t affect her like those girls from my school function did.

        UMM. Yeah ok. The real problem is the kids don’t know how to treat other people. School is also about learning how to socialize and how to treat people. She isn’t being teased because she is a bit different. She is being harassed because she is a girl going though puberty And no you don’t tackle street harassment in the same way as teasing because it’s completely different.

      • Byron

        If a kid by age 13 doesn’t already know full well it is not acceptable to harass people because of their chest size, the system and their parents has already failed them and there is little that can be done to fix the issue. In any case, nobody mentioned “street” anything in the article, it was all in the school environment and unless there was something left out of the article which you know that I do not, I can’t see how you would infer that there’s anything more than teasing/bullying taking place here.

        Also, from what I read, she’s not being teased because she’s a girl going through puberty, all girls in that age group do that. She’s being teased because her appearance has an unusual element about it. Sure, it is related to puberty and it can be perceived in connection to sex and all that stuff…but all it REALLY is is something of an unusual visual nature, like a funny nose, a weird tooth, a lazy eye. Don’t focus on the trigger of the teasing, don’t focus of the fact that her breasts are what she’s teased about, that only misleads you and makes this issue a gender or puberty thing, when it in fact is nothing beyond kids being jerks and teasing the ones who’re different for no reason other than their being different.

        This girl was being sexually harassed by boys her own age. This is not the same kind of teasing as someone that has a large nose.

      And I was mercilessly mocked for having no chest at all (my queen-size ample-ness came later, much to my teenage self’s delight.) I wonder if anyone would have had the brass ones to tell my mom I needed a surgical breast enhancement to stem the volleyball room locker jokes.
