In the education context, sexual harassment is unwelcome, sex- or gender-based verbal or physical conduct that is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it interferes with, denies, or limits an individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the university’s educational programs and activities.
It can take two forms: power differentials (quid pro quo) or hostile environment: Any intentional sexual touching, however slight, with any body part or object, by any individual upon another that is without consent and/or by force or coercion.
An attacker also can use fear alone to commit rape.
Rape can cause both physical and emotional harm to the victim.
A meta-analysis by Rumney (2006) suggests that between 10-50% of rape allegations are false.Sexual contact includes: intentional contact with the breasts, buttock, groin, or genitals, or touching another with any of these body parts or object, or making another touch you or themselves with or on any of these body parts; any intentional bodily contact in a sexual manner, though not involving contact with/of/by breasts, buttocks, groin, genitals, mouth, or other orifice.All such acts of non-consensual sexual contact are forms of sexual assault, and therefore sexual misconduct, under this policy.Fortunately for me, the girl was a decent human being with a strong enough personality to resist the allure of petty revenge. I once thought that my story was unique, but I’ve since learned that it’s much more common than you might think.American men have started to realize that falsified rape claims are a serious threat to us, even though the issue is completely ignored by mainstream media sources. I hooked up with a girl and laughed in her face when she suggested we hang out again. She went to visit her don (floor captain/residence adviser), and poured her heart out.In a sane world, they would have shared some tears, some hugs, and some sisterly advice to watch out for smooth-talking boys with a copy of Roosh’s Bang in their back pocket.But this particular don was a gender studies major with a persecution complex and a close resemblance to late-career Roseanne Barr.She let out a deep Social Justice Warrior battle cry, and spent the semester trying to bully my consensual conquest into accusing me of rape. If that girl had been weaker, dumber, or more vindictive, my life may have turned out very different.As the old saying goes "you don't dip your pen in the company ink." In other words, you shouldn't get into a dating or sexual relationship with a co-worker.But consider this: according to a recent Workplace Options survey, nearly 85% of 18-29 year olds would have a romantic relationship with a co-worker, compared to just over 35% for 30-46 year olds and about 30% of 47-66 year olds.
