Why Girls Think Sexual Harassment is Normal

Here are 4 myths, according to Everyday Feminism, which lead to girls viewing sexual harassment as normal:

2. Female sexuality exists for the benefit of and belongs to men – and men alone.

3. Girls must take responsibility for male sexuality and protect themselves against it.

4. If any dispute arises about whether sexual contact was enthusiastically welcomed, err on the side of penis because women are manipulative liars.


We find it interesting that the same myths have led schools to impose ridiculous dress codes on female and female-presenting students.
