Relevant excerpt

Other types of unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature can also constitute sexual harassment, if sufficiently severe or pervasive that the target finds, and a reasonable person would find, that an intimidating, hostile or abusive work or academic environment has been created. Examples of this kind of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to, the following:
* sexual comments, teasing, or jokes;
* sexual slurs, demeaning epithets, derogatory statements, or other verbal abuse of a sexual nature;
* graphic or sexually suggestive comments about an individual’s attire or body;
* graphic or sexually suggestive gestures;
* inquiries or discussions about sexual activities;
* pressure to accept social invitations, to meet privately, to date, or to have sexual relations;
* sexual touching, brushing up against another in a sexual manner, cornering, pinching, grabbing, kissing, or fondling;
* coerced sexual intercourse or sexual assault.
