    It was when I was a junior in high school.

    . I was having such a good morning, I said "Hi" and smiled to one of my fellow male classmates. He was in special ed, but I don't think he's by any means stupid, maybe just a little slower. I was at my locker when he came around the corner and hugged me. It was a long, awkward...

    I’ve been sexually harassed countless times

    in my life. And there are a few that stick out. One of them bordered on rape. But other than the harassment itself, what plights me is my reaction to those situations. I don’t know why but I never stand up for myself. Instead, I always end up “steering into the skid...

    It was my favorite place to be. Not because of my friends like most kids but because I lucked out with amazing teachers and loved to learn. 8th grade my English teacher ended up being the creepiest man I have ever met in my life. He sexually harassed me for four months until I...

    So I finally told the old pervert

    who has been bothering me for almost a year to stop it today. He STILL came by my desk. My friends who know what has been going on were flabbergasted that he had the nerve to still bother me. I told him to leave me ALONE! If it continues, I'm telling my supervisor.

    By a Woman?

    It's really odd when you're harassed by a woman. 1. Nobody believes you. 2. People are incredulous that you didn't succumb to the sexual advance.   I just kept quiet about it and eventually left the company. She wasn't the cause. But I had to work with her. It was...

    Especially if our job description requires us to be polite to customers, or remain seated in one place throughout most of the shift. Just because we don't tell you to f#ck off, or walk away, doesn't mean we like it. It just means that we can't. Exploiting our position as an...
