So a lot of people make fun of me and call me little girl and say I look completely innocent and that just doesn't match my personality cause I feel completely degraded and looked down upon... I'm almost 17 and I still feel and look like I'm 12 :(
I was thinking of getting my tongue pierced..

You do look young, but man, will you be happy when you get older. I went through the same thing in my teens and twenties. When I was in my early twenties I was mistaken for a teenager a lot and even at 29 I was mistaken for my early twenties.
I actually did not care much because the impression never lasted long due to my attitude. I am well spoken, thoughtful and can be quite serious in the workplace and that also flows into my personal life. People can think what they want but the moment I started speaking, it was clear that I was older than my looks. I was always treated with respect because of it.
When you have a baby face you really are not going to look less baby-faced with a tongue piercing. But a haircut that was less school-girlish and more edgy, that would be of help. Then work on your attitude. Make sure you don't speak with a little girl voice and you don't act like a ditz. And stop thinking that looking young is degrading. Your thoughts on the subject just fuel anything other people are doing to you.1
