PUBLIC HARASSMENT: AT A HIGH SCHOOL DANCE…

At a high school dance, my purse was taken, put in a toilet in the men’s room, and peed on. I faced public humiliation as well as property damage. But the worst part was the feeling of violation. I didn’t feel safe in my school community anymore. My peers did nothing. The school administration did nothing. The police did nothing. I was told I overreacted and I needed to let it go. Ten years later, it still hurts that everyone just accepted it.
