#MeToo
 
A question for both girls and boys -- Have you been sexually harassed?

Tell your story here.

For me, it has been boys who don't understand that no means no. Maybe they thought that I eventually would say yes. But I didn't.

I have never been sexually harassed. I am lucky. It must be a very hard thing to experience... Being put down like that. Those boys didn't understand the consequences of their actions.

However, that is why we have law enforcement. I hope you're doing well recovering from that bad experience, but to all who experience sexual harassment, do not be afraid to contact the police. The offender deserves punishment for causing you to suffer for their own gain. If the police will not do anything, just know that everyone who harasses others will suffer punishment for their actions in one way or another.

Its been a while since I spoke openly about this here. Maybe itll do someone some good if I do a bit again

Yeah, me to, was a lot more than harassment. Not sure it sounds appropriate to tell my “story” here but I’ll leave it that the statistics seem correct in my case that the offender(s) are most likely to be known, or close trusting family members.

All I can say to others in the same shoes is you aren’t alone, and talk about it. Therapy comes in many forms, and don’t let them get away with it. If you do, they WILl keep,doing it to you, or someone else.

Be brave, not embarrassed by it. Doesn’t mean jack shit about sexuality. Stand up for your rights and put a stop to this awful form of violence

I think it IS appropriate for you to say whatever you want to.

There was a boy who would constantly want to grab my butt when I was in ninth grade.

Luckily, we eventually moved away and I will never see him again.

I was sexually abused first as a kid age 6-7 by a family member of the foster family I lived at.

Later in my teens I was repeatedly sexually harrassed and even rape just due to the fact that other males felt that since I was openly gay I wanted to have sex with any guy.

I was always an easy victim with now stable family to back me up and from a social background where it always was highly unlikely that I would go to the police and they believe me and take action.

Yes, use to get it a lot on the way to school before I started secondary (high school?) school. Used to get the bus and older guys would always 'happen' to sit next to me so they could 'casually' rub against my leg or against my chest, even before I hit puberty. Nothing else happened, but it still always weirded me out. Glad I don't have to get that bus. Still get catcalled on the way to school though.

I think what with some boys they dont get it that no means no or stop means stop and doest meant do or try something else.

I think it is true when they say that harassment/rape is more about power than sex. I have been groped by girls without my permission, but never felt harassed or assaulted. because i never felt that they had power over me.

Itís true. And itís not always about how you feel, but it can. If they feel they have the power then they can satisfy their need they are striving for. Thatís why itís really good to not let them do that, unless you welcome it, but thatís different
