Why is hitting on a girl considered sexual harassment?
If you have sex with a woman without her permission, it's rape.
If you ask her if she wants to have sex with you, it sexual harassment?
The reason I'm asking this is because I'm being accused of sexual harassment by a classmate.
I have never asked her out, I have never asked her for sex, I never touched her or attempted to touch her.
I have, however, repeatedly hit on her. I also have come up to her and said things like, "Heyy, how's it going."
She now thinks I am creepy and she feels "uncomfortable." She has reported me.
Am I sexually harassing her, or is she in the wrong?
