Sexual harassment myths: Know the reality

When it comes to sexual harassment in the workplace, nobody wants to be a victim. This type of environment is not healthy.

While some people fully understand sexual harassment, others don't have a solid grasp on what it means to be a victim. This is due in large part to the many myths that circulate.

Here are some of the most common sexual harassment myths, as well as the reality associated with each one:

  • Sexual harassment is not a big deal, as the harasser considers it "good fun." Even if a person is teasing and means no harm, it doesn't make the situation any more enjoyable for the victim.
  • Ignoring sexual harassment will make it stop. Unfortunately, this is not true. Ignoring the problem will not make it go away. In fact, it may bring the harassment to life, as the harasser believes it is okay to continue with such behavior.
  • Men sexually harass women, not the other way around. This is not true, as men and women can find themselves on both end of the harassment. Contrary to what many believe, there are times when women sexually harass men.

It is important to understand the myths and realities associated with sexual harassment. Those who believe these myths, among others, to be true, often put themselves in a worse position.

Sexual harassment remains a problem in the United States. There are still men and women who think it is okay to harass others in this manner. As a victim, you must know your rights and how to put an end to the problem once and for all.
