Advice needed: how should teenager deal with sexist teasing from boys at school?

What advice would you give a teenage girl on dealing with sexist comments from male classmates? Sarah wrote in with this question:

I get teased in school – what’s the best way of shutting down boys who say girls can’t follow football? What can I say to those that seem to think that girls and sports don’t mix?

They also seem to forget that there’s a girl attached to my breasts sometimes too :(
