- sexual comments, teasing, or jokes;
- sexual slurs, demeaning epithets, derogatory statements, or
other verbal abuse;
- graphic or sexually suggestive comments about an
individual's attire or body;
- inquiries or discussions about sexual activities;
- pressure to accept social invitations, to meet privately, to date,
or to have sexual relations;
- sexually suggestive letters or other written materials;
