Adults sometimes sexually harass young people (and, occasionally, teens may harass adults, though that's pretty rare).But most of the time, when sexual harassment happens to teens, it's being done by people in the same age group."It's no secret that misogyny and abuse are thriving on social media platforms, but this poll shows just how damaging the consequences of online abuse are," said Amnesty researcher Azmina Dhrodia."This is not something that goes away when you log off." Threats have chilling effect Of those who have experienced online harassment, between one-fifth and one-quarter said the abuse included threats of physical or sexual assault.

The Greens parliamentarian, Özcan Mutlu, is just one example.Even if you've never been bullied or harassed, chances are you know someone who has.
