When I was at KEGS a boy made horrible sexual comments about me on a group chat. I didn’t think about it too much because I knew it was something they did a lot and I tried not to let it get to me.
There’s so many problems with this. Firstly I didn’t want to tell my parents to worry them and because they would have wanted to report it to the school and I didn’t want to create a bigger problem. Secondly the fact that I didn’t have faith in the school system to actually make the situation better. The boy may have faced mild consequences (mild because rude comments on a group chat wouldn’t be seen as a big deal) but ultimately I would still have to see him at school everyday and he would have been angry at me for ‘snitching’ and I knew I would be faced with people talking about how I couldn’t ‘take a joke’ and that I was ‘too sensitive’. And because of this people like this boy never face the consequences and this kind of behaviour continues.
