I Was Molested When I Was A Child

I have a question for those who have been molested. Particularly, women. After you got molested did you begin to feel self conscious about your body to the point where you wanted to cover yourself? Or dress like a dude in order to avoid male attention?
Because I went through that myself.
I've always been self conscious. Not because I was molested, but because I was overweight. I didn't dress like a dude to avoid male attention. In fact, I didn't try to avoid men. I didn't have any issues with them. I wasn't scared of them. But I didn't like dressing too girly, I didn't like it when people called me a young woman. I didn't like it when people saw me as a woman. The word just felt dirty to me. I didn't want to be associated with fertility, sex, or femininity. But I think that was because of something that was specifically said while I was being molested, not because of the actual molestation.
