Letter: What is sexual harassment?

To the Editor:

A senator french-kisses a woman and it’s called sexual harassment – maybe.

Women I don’t know kiss and hug me and I am not comfortable with it.

Is that sexual harassment?

People want to jam their bodies against another person for a picture, so hands may touch a personal area. If a squeeze doesn’t happen, it’s an accident, not harassment!

To counter the kisses and hugs, I have learned to shoot a hand out to stop a hug in its tracks.

I have seen many professional men and women hugging the same or opposite genders without any apparent problem. How does one know who to hug and who not to hug?

One man is resigning because he asked a staffer if she would be a surrogate mother.

That’s not harassment to me. Trump said he had groped many women but millions of voters don’t care.

I would be very interested to hear from men and women what they consider borders on harassment and under what conditions.

Is most harassment that nebulous and exists mainly in the eyes of the beholder?

Will it get to the point where we are like little kids and afraid to touch or even be near someone else? Please write in your opinions.
