“It’s like a handshake we do.” This is the comment of a girl in McMinnville about junior high boys swatting girls on the buttocks. On Monday two thirteen-year-old boys go on trial for sexual harassment. Attempts to label this kind of contact as harmless horseplay only accents the extent of the problem. Young teen males should not think it is acceptable to have uninvited physical contact with girls that has any potential sexual overtones. Young teen girls should recognize this kind of interaction is demeaning. Sexuality is a beautiful and powerful force and should never be cheapened.
