Sexual bullying encompasses both physical and non physical actions which harmfully refer to another's sexuality or gender in a degrading or bullying fashion. Bullying takes place in an effort to damage another or pressure them in some way. Unwanted physical contact or forcing another to act in a sexual way, or even discussing another's sexuality in a demeaning fashion are forms or sexual bullying. Actions to prevent or punish sexual bullying are becoming more prevalent with social awareness increasing on this subject.
Being the recipient of sexual bullying by another or others can be devastating to anyone, and particularly to a younger person. Unfortunately it is the nature of bullying that usually the one bullying another is stronger or in some way appears more powerful to the individual suffering this form of sexual abuse, and fear is created that can prevent the reporting of the tormenting activity. For the sake of the person involved and others who may suffer this abuse, it is vital that the situation be reported and action taken to force the guilty party to confront the harm they are doing and seek compensation for damages.
