I don't like to participate in P.E. because I get embarrassed with all the boys staring at my boobs when I run. I told my mom and she suggested a sports bra, but now with my boobs confined the guys think I stuffed all along. What do I do?
Hey boobedoutYou have a right to enjoy participating in P.E., without being embarrassed. Playful teasing and oogling boys are always going to be part of school, but it sounds like these boys in your P.E. class have crossed the line. Talk to your P.E. teacher and tell him or her that the comments these boys are making are stressing you out and making P.E. class unenjoyable for you. Your teacher has a responsibility to make your P.E. class a place that is healthy, fun and free from hurtful comments and sexual harassment.
When boys reach their early teenage years, they develop a very keen fascination with the female chest - so your teacher won't be able to stop boys from staring at your boobs all the time. However, your teacher should be able to put an end to the teasing and other rude comments. If your teacher doesn't do anything about it, talk to your principal or parents until it stops. You could also try giving these boys a taste of their own medicine. Perhaps if you made a witty comment about these boys needing to stuff their pants, they'd quickly stop making comments about your chest.
