41 Percent Of College Students Guilty Of Sexual Harassment

WASHINGTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You may think sexual harassment is no joke, but a lot of college students disagree with you.

According to a new survey by the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation, 51 percent of male college students and 31 percent of their female counterparts have sexually harassed someone.

What makes them do it? Well, 59 percent of college-age harassers think it’s funny and 32 percent think the harassee liked it.

In addition, 17 percent figure sexually harassing someone is the best way to get a date with them.

But men and women have different opinions on the effects of sexual harassment: 68 percent of women who were harassed were upset by the teasing and pinching, but only 35 percent of men had a problem with being groped.
