Verbal sexual harassment and physical sexual harassment have similarities. However, there are some aspects that differentiate them from one another. With verbal harassment, there are many types of verbal conduct of a sexual nature which can result in sexual harassment. Examples are:
Overall, individuals experiencing verbal sexual harassment can endure mental damage from the offender if such actions persist and become severe.
To meet the official term of “harassment,” actions must be either severe or pervasive. It is not required for both to exist. The law does not aggressively go against minimal teasing, offhand comments, or situations that only happen only once or so.
Basically, if an individual rejects an invitation to go out on a date, it may not be considered as either severe or pervasive. However, if an individual keeps presenting themselves in an unwelcomed manner while forcing his or her sexual presence on a victim(s) for a long-period of time would meet the definition of sexual harassment.
It’s a good idea to look back at the amount of times you’ve been contacted with similar inappropriate actions. This will help you know what the next step will be once an individual inflicting inappropriate actions on you becomes a serious issue.
