What can I do if someone stares at my breasts?

Go to an art museum — or look at any magazine cover — and you'll see that breasts are a subject of interest. Breasts feed babies and they give women's bodies that hourglass shape, so it's understandable that people are interested. But it is not polite to stare at someone's breasts — it's rude and it can make girls feel very uncomfortable.

If someone stares at yours, you can fold your arms and then look them straight in the eye. That should send the message without you having to say anything. There are other time-tested methods, too, like holding your books in front of your chest. But if someone's staring is making you uncomfortable, be sure to tell a parent or an adult.
