The line between when a flirt turns into sexual harassment may seem invisible. In fact, a flirt and sexual harassment are clearly distinguishable. A flirt is a mutually desirable behavior that respects mutual boundaries and can make everyday life more beautiful. Sexual harassment is a crossing of boundaries with an undesirable and discriminatory behavior in which power is exercised and that violates. The rule for differentiation is simple: the decisive factor is not the intention of the person acting, but how their behavior is received by the person concerned, whether an approach is desired or not.
