We appear to be at a point in our culture where ANY person can commit sexual harassment, even if that person may not even know or understand the concept of sex.

A kindergarten student was accused earlier this month of sexually harassing a classmate at Lincolnshire Elementary School, an accusation that will remain on his record until he moves to middle school.

Washington County Public Schools spokeswoman Carol Mowen said the definition of sexual harassment used by the school system is, "unwelcome sexual advances, request for sexual favors and/or other inappropriate verbal, written or physical conduct of a sexual nature directed toward others."

Mowen said that definition comes from the Maryland State Department of Education.

According to a school document provided by the boy's father, the 5-year-old pinched a girl's buttocks on Dec. 8 in a hallway at the school south of Hagerstown.


The incident was described as "sexual harassment" on the school form.

Yep. A 5 year old who may not be able to tie his own shoes is capable of sexual harassment. Adults can be so un-freakin'-believable.
