My experience with sexual harassment

Posted on April 21, 2013 at 6:38pm 1 Comment

Sexual harassment sounds pretty serious, right?

I think so too, so when I learned what it was in high school, I was shocked and uncomfortable to realize that I had been experiencing sexual harassment since middle school. I never had a name for it, but I knew that it made me feel uncomfortable and ashamed of my body.
