The most common reason students give for sexually harassing other students is "it's no big deal" (44%) and "it was funny" (39%), particularly with verbal-harassment. However, girls are substantially more likely to feel these sexual comments/jokes and sexual rumors about them to have the most negative effect. Notably, being called "gay" has the most negative effect for many boys.
