Is anybody going to ask a serious question here? It is a very important area of sociology and should not be treated as a joke.

The reason that some people may not take this subject seriously is because they are not ready to believe that this is a serious problem in our society today. Believe me I have been sexually harassed and it is not the easiest thing to deal with. Turning it in/ filing a report is tragic and then facing people after it has happened and the story has been switched into 20 different lies is very hard. Give these people time they will come around!

You have my sincere sympathy. I have been invovled as an advocate for 6 different cases in the industrial arena here in New Zealand and regardless of any result the victim is always left feeling "dirty" or "being selfish or oversensitive" Believe me in the long run it really was worthwhile if only because it will probably mean that sopmebody else doesnt have to go through the dsame experience. Thank you for your courage and remember this always, "the pathmaker is not always remembered but the path when trodden by many is appreciated and enjoyed". I dont know precisely who said that but it has stuck in my memory. I think it was from a Judge here in NZ but I could be mistaken my friend.
Enjoy life and happy Easter
