Types of sexual harassment

Common ways that Middle Schoolers especially, sexually harass one another, in a physical way are -- There are different games that they have told me about. Scooping, which is walking by someone and grabbing their breast or it can happen on their genitals as well. It happens to both boys and girls. Another one is the nervous game. They will put their hand on someone's leg and ask them, "Are you nervous yet?" They will, kind of, move the hand up until they say, "Yes, I'm nervous." Another one is slap-ass Friday. Some schools that I've been to, they just know that on Friday's everyone's butt is going to get slapped. So everyone is walking around protecting themselves or carrying their backpack around their pants or wear baggy clothes, so they can protect themselves from what's happening on a regular basis there.
