I just had a random thought about when I stopped “Going Outside” to play as a girl in the hood. I was probably 13 or so. Everything was cool until boobs grew in and braces came off. All of a sudden boys didn’t want to play baseball anymore. They felt that my body belonged to them now and that they could say and do anything they wanted. Overnight I was sexualized. I’ll never forget the moment we were all walking around the ‘hood and we found a bunch of used condoms in a ditch. I didn’t really know what they were but the boys did. All of a sudden things were different and the boys were saying how they always wanted to do this and that. I didn’t feel safe anymore and stayed in my house to be safe. Did this happen to anyone else?
