I have several negative experiences with the boys at KEGS and their misogynistic attitudes towards women in general that made me feel uncomfortable in their presence.
However, I distinctly remember one boy who had spread sexual rumours to all his friends claiming that I had done indecent things towards him after we went on a date. I would then be victim to harassment on social media from his friends who would sexualise and objectify me purely based on rumours.
I strongly believe that the way they would speak about my body and message me about it left me feeling vulnerable and scared to go to school. I would often hide away on train journeys because I would be scared of the comments made about me or even if they would target me as “easy” and do something further.
