at what point is it considered sexual harassment

When a car load of young men cat call at you from across a dark parking lot? Or what about when the same group follows you out of the parking lot and drives nice and slow beside you (and your fifteen year old sister ) making disgusting sexual remarks? OR what about when the SAME group of guys sits and watches you when you're out jogging and then decides it would be a good idea to FOLLOW you and yell about your 'fine ***'.

So I'm kind of fuming here because I'm absolutely disgusted, my hands are actually shaking I'm so mad. WHY is that considered 'acceptable' by these guys, and more importantly my sister who thinks it's normal.

End rant... maybe.

Self defense focusing solely on crushing testicles...........

Sexual harassment is any unsolicited behavior of a sexual nature (even remotely), and these guys crossed "the line" long ago. I'm sorry that you're experiencing this. Their behavior is completely unacceptable.

I suggest getting a license plate number and contacting police. It may be considered normal now a days, but who knows if these creeps find out where you live... Or maybe catch you off guard and really do something terrible.

Its sexual harassment when they start talking badly to you- the following is stalking!!

Tell them your married. If that don't work call the police! That's scary!

I don't know about the legal ramifications. I only think of sexual harassment as being something to protect people in workplace situations.

However, having them following you, more than once, is rather threatening and I'd have my cell phone out , looking at their license plate number and dialing 911 if they don't leave you alone .

I stopped running in that area because I absolutely hate confrontation and I'm a 'freezer' so it never occurred to me to get a plate number. I'm almost certain that they're just young guys who think it's 'cool' to hit on girls in the street but there's always that chance, right? More than anything I'm just ticked off that they think it's okay.

(But yes, I'll be getting plate numbers if I see them again).

They don't necessarily need to be saying "bad" things for it to be sexual harassment.

Anytime the comments make you feel uncomfortable, and/or were unsolicited - it's time to take action.
I hope you contact local law enforcement and at least ask them what you should do.

Does this happen on different occasions or as just a one off? Its definitely sexual harassment, and stalking - and if it is happening regularly I would definitely be calling the police.
