Honestly, nothing made me angrier than when I learned that you are supposed to gain weight during female puberty.
You're supposed to get thick around the middle, you're supposed to get baby fat. You're developing tits, which are basically just fat, you're developing wider hips, which require more fat— it's literally just how female puberty works, you get fat around the middle in your early teens and and then your body moves that fat later on to the places it needs to go.
You're supposed to develop curves. "Curvy" isn't just "a nice word for fat" like I genuinely thought in my teens, it's literally just how your body is meant to be shaped. Afab people naturally store more fat.
(For the record, there's nothing wrong with being actually fat either, and some people's bodies are just meant to be shaped that way. Being fat doesn't necessarily mean you're unhealthy. Just in general, fat isn't inherently bad.)
Faces as well. Like not just for afab people, but people's faces are naturally rounder in their teens and early twenties, and naturally change and gain definition later on. Like this is why "baby-faced" is a thing— young people's faces look different.
(The reason the young people on TV don't look like that, fyi, is because most of the young people on TV are played by 30 year old actors.)
Nobody ever told me this growing up. I used to do fucking exercises in front of the mirror as a teen to try and make my face thinner, because I was so self-conscious about my cheeks being chubby and my face being round, and then years later I found out that that was fucking normal, that that's just what young people's faces fucking look like…
I've posted about this before, but genuinely, we need better education about puberty in schools. Like conversations like this always centre on sex ed specifically, and obviously that's important, but honestly it would have saved me so much heartache growing up if somebody had sat me down and told me exactly what was going to happen to my body, rather than just sticking to the basic 'pubes, periods and tits' talk that seems to be all schools actually want to cover.

It’s from Reddit so take it with a grain of salt…and you’d prefer to think it wasn’t true, but this sounds so similar to the stories *all* relatives of qanon people have. Heartbreaking.

Help! A Teen Disagrees With Me!
Dear Abby, 23 September 2021:
DEAR ABBY: I am cleaning out my closet and have decided to sell my wedding dress from 21 years ago. I love the dress; it's beautiful. But it's a very large box to store. My 16-year-old daughter has made it clear to me she will never marry. It was difficult for me to accept, as she's my only daughter. The thing is, she wants to try my dress on. I don't want her to because she doesn't agree with the sanctity of marriage or the commitment of it, and I don't want my wedding dress tried on by anyone who feels this way about marriage. It means more than playing dress-up, and I believe it should be worn only by someone who respects it. Am I wrong? Does my daughter have a right to have hurt feelings over this? -- NOT A GAME OF DRESS-UP
Dear Not A Game Of Dress-Up,
Madam, you must defend the holy and precious institution of marriage at all costs lest one single teenager wearing a dress decimate the blessed sacrament! You hold the fates of marriages the world over in your hands, and you mustn't let your daughter obliterate billions of lives by applying cloth to her body. You and your unassailable principles are the only thing protecting an all-too-vulnerable world from the end of the very concept of marriage as we know it!
Not only does your daughter not have a right to experience hurt feelings over this, but she really owes you and every other person who has been married, considered marriage, or who vaguely believes in marriage as a concept a major apology. Why, marriage is not a game of dress-up! Marriage is primarily and historically a business and financial arrangement built to reinforce the patriarchy by legally regulating and mandating heterosexual relationships for the purpose of increasing wealth and property by treating women like interchangeable broodmares whose sole value rests in their reproductive capacities, and making men think they're worthless if they don't make gobs of money and spend their evenings grunting with the boys over brandy and cigars. Ah, romance! That your daughter would take an ill view of such a beloved and honored custom is genuinely mystifying.
We can be sure, of course, that your daughter will never marry, nor will she ever change her mind about marrying under any circumstances whatsoever. Teenage declarations are contractually binding, and grand proclamations about future life plans by 16-year-olds in particular are known for their consistency and longevity. And yet you must seek to change her mind, otherwise you may be obligated to support her in indefinite spinsterhood should she fail to match with a master who can provide her with food and housing in exchange for heirs.
The best way to convince your daughter that marriage is desirable is to tell her that her filthy, offensive body will desecrate a piece of clothing you've kept shoved in a box in the back of your closet for over twenty years unless the little hussy straightens out her attitude. If that doesn't have her beating a path to the altar with the closest available male, the next best way to respect and honor marriage as an institution is to sell your wedding dress for cash.

Black teens shouldn’t have to worry about being killed by cops.
LGBTQ+ teens shouldn’t have to worry about being thrown out or assaulted.
Asian teens shouldn’t have to worry about being attacked or facing xenophobia.
Latino teens shouldn’t have to worry about being told they don’t belong here or having family members deported. 
Low-income teens shouldn’t have to worry about how to succeed in a world stacked against them.
Teens shouldn’t have to worry about climate change or school shootings or all the other stuff they do, and underprivileged and minority teens have even more to worry about. Let’s change the world so future generations don’t have to go through this.

Hi, I would just like to share that in English class, our teacher asked us to pick an issue we are interested in and/or passionate about for our essay for our month-long project.
Once we all picked them out, she asked us all to put them in this google doc for her to approve. As I'm scrolling through, I see issues like;
Environment
Human Rights
Homophobia
Gender Inequality
Mental Health
Racism
Rape
Corruption in the Government
I'd like to inform everyone reading this that me and my classmates are 12-13 years old, and we have thoughts on these things. These are matters that have been debated for years by adults, some of which are less educated on said issues than us. Yet we have real solutions and ideas based on solid, thorough research.
And for the cherry on top, this isn't something we're not excited to do, or we consider a ‘boring assignment,’ We talk about these things during our free time, during lunch and outside of school.
Maybe this is something for people to think about. That we, a group of 'immature,' or 'naive,' teenagers, CHILDREN have real discussions and thoughts about government corruption, rape, and discrimination.

Everyone talks about parent's sacrifices but no one wants to talk about children's sacrifices. I know parents sacrifice a lot in order to raise their children, make a better life for them (and we can never ever repay them for their efforts). But bro children sacrifice. They quit their dreams to follow their parent's dream. They quit their passion just not to upset their parents. They take up the career that their parents suggest without even liking it. And many more. And not to mention emotional blackmailing of their parents.
Can we all normalise talking about kids' sacrifices too without feeling guilty?
