Another useless suvery of sexual harassment...

75%, c'mon..that's just silly. How can we take sexual harassment seriously when they keep on publishing these spurious studies.
Three-quarters of high school students who participated in a bullying survey said they had been sexually harassed at least once by their peers, as the taunts and jeers of schoolyard tormentors take on a sexualized tone in adolescence.

The survey of 3,000 youths in eight high schools in Toronto, Kingston, Ont., and Montreal was conducted by psychology professors at Toronto's York University and Kingston's Queen's University.

The type of behaviour ranged from unwanted sexual remarks and sexual jokes to comments about someone's appearance. Brushing up against classmates in a sexual way and sexual rumours spread by Internet messaging were also reported by the students.
Jokes about appearance? sexual jokes? My god, when will we start taking this seriously?
