17. What for you is "sexual harrassment"? Does it only pertain to physical actions or does it include verbal insinuations of one's sexuality as well?

In my opinion, sexual harassment can be a verbal, non-verbal and physical action. An example of verbal sexual harassments are whistling, making/telling sexual jokes to a person, asking out a person to do a sexual activity. Some of the non-verbal sexual harassments are, making facial expressions such as winking to a person, throwing him/her a kiss and also making sexual gestures through body movements. Physical action is the most common sexual harassment that we all know. Example of this are, touching someone else body or even a persons clothes, hugging and kissing.Sexual harassment is an act that a person do with an id state of mind. They satisfy their sexual desire by doing this act.Neglecting whether it is a verbal, non-verbal and a physical action, as long as it would make them satisfied.

For me they are both considered as sexual harassment, even just looking into person intently seems like stripping her clothes can consider a sexual harassment, because it gives to the person (girl/gay or even boy) a different feeling like "nababastos". Of course it is hard to file a case in that (just looking) sabihin pa "nabawasan ka ba?" or "ang suplada mo naman di ka naman kagandahan". But take into consideration if the girl/gay (is bastusin) shows motives or a flirt.

When we talk about Physical Harassment, this includes unsolicited verbal, visual and physical bahavior.

Some examples are:

* Leering
* Offensive jokes
* Sexually suggestive gestures
* Pinching
* Hugging (or any other physical contact)
* Pressure (explicit or implied) for sexual relations
* The display of sexual images.
It also includes:
* Molestation
* Sexual assault
* Explicit violence in the form of rape.
* Expressly unwelcome and unreciprocated deliberate or repeated verbal comments of a sexual nature, including suggestive remarks and offensive jokes.
* Unsolicited and unreciprocated physical contact such as touching, pinching, patting, hugging or brushing against someone.
* An unwelcome display of sexually offensive or erotic images.
* Unwelcome and unreciprocated sexual teasing, including jokes, remarks or questions.
* Treating someone as a sex object, rather than an equal in society.
* Unsolicited, unwelcome and unreciprocated sexually suggestive looks or gestures such as leering, ogling and staring.
* Ignoring a person's skill, experience or ability, focusing instead on physical, gender-specific attributes. Sexual harassment is NOT:
It's equally important, however, to note exactly what sexual harassment is not:
* Compliments provided the recipient has raised no objection.
* Solicited or reciprocated flirtation based on mutual attraction.

What for you is “Sexual Harassment”? Does it only pertain to physical actions or does it include verbal insinuations of one’s sexuality as well?

I believe that whenever there is any unwelcome attention of a sexual nature may it be in physical or verbal form, it is considered as sexual harassment. The action may range from mild annoyances to actual sexual abuse. These conducts unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work or academic performance. The victim may be man or woman, he or she does not have to be the opposite sex.

Considering the criteria of sexual harassment stated above, the following may be the following forms of sexual harassment:
• Sexual jokes, innuendos, and gestures;
• Unsolicited and unwelcome flirtations, advances of propositions, however subtle;
• Graphic or degrading comments about someone's appearance, dress, or body;
• Staring at an individual or focusing upon a particular area of the body;
• Elevator eyes. looking someone up and down;
• Whistling, cat calls, leering;
• Terms of address such as "honey", "baby", "chick," "hunk", or "dear";
• Regularly offering personal gifts such as flowers, candy, etc.
• Display of sexually suggestive objects or pictures;
• Sexual or intrusive questions about an individual's personal life;
• Explicit descriptions of the harasser's own sexual experiences;
• Neck or shoulder massages;
• Pressure ( however subtle) for sexual activity;
• Explicit offers of sex for grades, money, or other rewards;
• Any unnecessary, unwanted physical contact such as touching, rubbing, hugging, pinching, patting, or kissing;
• Physical or sexual assault, including rape

Sexual harassment is serious and should be taken action most especially when it has already affected a person’s self-esteem and when it already has affected a person’s performance.
