I'm 5'0 and I'm usually one of the shortest in my classes. I always get called shorty and teased about for my height. Even by my own teacher lmao I don't really care though, it's annoying but I'm not that affected by it :3

Yes. Yes I do.
Not so much at college. Apparently I'm "normal" here but in my hometown? Yes. Every damn day. I'm 5'4 and rather slight in build so it's not like they can deduce my age by my "womanly curves" because they don't exist.
I get mistaken for being 12. I am handed the kids menu at restaurants. I am spoken down to because people think I am younger than I am. One woman told my mom she was impressed that I spoke so well "for my age." She thought I was fucking ten years old.
I dropped my brother off at a middle school event and they thought I was his younger sister. Even though I was carrying the car keys and the purse.
I get hit on by my brothers' friends (they're 14).
And to top it all off, I am then told it is my fault that people mistake me for being young. I should "be taller" so they don't make the mistake.
I was teased relentlessly for it when I was a child. Being a whole foot shorter than your next tallest classmate leads to mockery. And it hasn't really gotten any better.0
