She Cried at School When Her Teacher Wouldn’t Stop a Student From Bothering Her. Did She Go Too Far?

I’ve never heard the term “weaponizing femininity” before today but here we are…

And this teenage girl was accused of doing just that for what she did at school when she found herself in a tough situation.

Take a look at this story and let us know if you think she took things too far.

AITA for “weaponizing my femininity” by crying since the teacher wouldn’t stop another student harassing me ?

“For a little backstory, I (15f) lost my mom when I was 5, dad raised me alone until last year when my second dad, whom I call papa, moved to our home. Now we are a happy family of four (me, two dads and dog).

I’m not ashamed of my family so I never hid it, I’m not really popular at school so I just really told my friends and it was all good. Until about two months ago a boy I’ll call Duncan (15m) found out.

Duncan started simple with jokes like “wow which one of them is the mom?” Which I promptly told the teacher, Mr.Smith, who was like “He’s just trying to understand, if you want people to understand you have to be patient”.

Duncan started to escalate with “Enjoy your time here, it’ll get worse when your sinner family goes to hell” and again I went to Mr.Smith who again was “You can’t be prejudiced with his religion, it’s wrong in the Bible. He’s is just trying to understand.”

In my country every class has only one responsible teacher so I couldn’t go to another btw.

I have many examples but this paints the picture. After two months of that I realized that if I wanted him to stop I had to do it myself.

So when he started with his homophobic s**t at the cafeteria I started to remember the saddest thing I could, all movies where the dog d**s. All the sad romance movies. Mufasas’ D**th. The Fox and The Hound.

It didn’t take long for the waterworks to come. I started to bawl. Ugly sobbing while basically screaming at him asking why he said I would go to hell, why he h**ed me and my dads. Just making a huge scene. Duncan started to stutter and plead, trying to make me go to class with him and talk to the teacher (wonder why). I just cried louder and flinched when he tried to pull me away.

The scene was so huge that we ended up at the principal’s office. Ms.Yates listened to both sides and she was p**sed at Mr. Smith, she let me tell the whole story even when Mr. Smith tried to interrupt me to defend Duncan. At the end Duncan got a 5 day suspension and the principal told me to go directly to her if ANYTHING like that happens again.

When we left the office Mr.Smith stopped me and told me “I hope you’re happy. You put a permanent mark on a good boy’s record because you decided to weaponize your femininity instead of being a little understanding.” He tried to make me apologize to Duncan but I told him I would go right back to the principal’s office if he did and he dropped it.

Then later Duncan’s friends started messaging me accusing me of acting like amber heard and ruining a boys life just because I can.

I didn’t tell my parents yet because they are always afraid I’ll suffer because they choose to love each other and I’ll not bring anything I can handle to worry them.

I don’t feel like I’m wrong, but with Mr.Smith’s warning and Duncan’s friends I’m starting to doubt , so AITA?”

Now take a look at what Reddit users had to say about this.
