#TBT: The Most Traumatic Moments of Our Girlhood

How many times have you heard your parents say, “You kids have it so easy. When I was a young boy/gal [insert story we don’t give a sh*t about here.]”? So maybe we were a little more spoiled than our parents were — okay, way more spoiled — but they act like girlhood was all rainbows and butterflies.

Growing up as a girl in Gen-Y wasn’t always easy. Sure, we got to play with Bratz dolls, which were way hotter versions of the classic Barbie, and we weren’t forced to listen to stupid hippie music because the Spice Girls saved the millenials and taught girls that if he wants to be your lover, he’s gotta get with your friends (hos over bros, duh).

However, there were some moments in our girlhood that we could’ve used a therapist to help us cope. Like when a boy asked you if you were a virgin at 5-years-old and you said no because you thought it was a bad thing (or was that just me?). Plenty of sh*t happened in our girlhood that we never want to relive. So before you decide which baby pic and filter will get you the most likes for #TBT, let’s take a moment to remember some of the most traumatic moments in our girlhood, and be grateful that they’re over.
