Sexual harassment is evil!

Whether one is paid or not, sexual harassment is unmoral and ultimately wrong. This goes for all ages.

If I ever have an unpaid internship, I don't want anyone to think it's okay to sexually harass me. That is never okay, no matter the professional or non-professional situation.

Young workers shouldn't have to compromise wanting to develop their careers in exchange for having to be abused in a workplace.

Why should somebody have to feel uncomfortable in their own working environment? Regardless of whether or not you are payed for the job, sexual advances or harassment is not acceptable in any way, shape, or form. Rape happens daily, it is forced upon people that the rapist may know, or may not know. But that is an offence. It is illegal. If anybody were to be caught in such an act, they would be thrown in jail and labeled "sexual predator". But now that it is in a working environment (it's just a different place, which SHOULD be professional, right?) why should it be accepted and allowed? Why should they not be thrown in jail and named "sexual predator"? It is merely unacceptable and needs to be handled in a more efficient and serious manner.
