Sexual Harassment- Standing up
By: Paola Lozano and Lovell Cox, students from CHS
How it effects...
Viewed as strong, opinionated characters realisticly they are just the same as any girl. They have feelings and like girls can give into peer pressures easily. When their friends think making classmates feel uncomfortable is okay and cool, they feel as though they have to do it too just to stay "big and bad". One boy even said that boys do not think it is a big deal; ” I guess no one does” (Lozano SURVEY). This is a devastating situation, boys lose who they are because of things like inappropriate jokes... you can help change this.
Although girls may be better at hiding how it hurts them, it effects them for a much longer time. Feeling uncomfortable in a place where you have to be every Monday through Friday is probably one of the worst things you can put anyone through. School is a place for learning and unfortunately for a lot of girls its actually unbearable.
