When I was in 4th grade, a classmate that had previously been bullying me began to make sexual advances towards me. He would say sexual terms to me, that at the point I had not heard of before. He taught me all about sex in a very disgusting manner. He would constantly try to touch me or stick his foot in between my legs when we were sitting down. He sat directly across from me and we faced each other. When I had spoken up to my teacher, he told me that it was my fault, and then this classmate was messing with me because I was so obnoxious and loud. My teacher blamed me for him tormenting me. This went on for the entire school year and I felt as though if I kept quiet, it would go away eventually. I’m now in high school and while I have grown and understood my experience, I no longer allow people to touch me, even friends, and most of my family.
