“My friend was grabbed forcefully”

Her friend and her brother disagree on how she should respond to being grabbed. What do you think?

MA says:

My friend was touched sexually two days before the year ended. They were alone in the biology room. She wasn’t being provocative, and no, she didn’t want it to happen. She was grabbed forcefully and asked him to stop, but he wouldn’t. I say she should’ve gone to the office, but now it’s probably too late for that. If she has a class with him, I say to get it changed, or at least that she should say something to her parents, so they can get a restraining order against him.

EM says:

I’m her brother. I think it’s best to just keep shut until he strikes again. Because what if one mistake ruins his life? It’s too late, anyway, and it’s not that big of a deal. It’s not like he raped her.

    Go to her parents. What he did was illegal! Without repercussion that guy will think it’s ok to keep doing it. Who knows how many times he’s attacked a girl before? He’ll do it again if he got away with it once. They can talk to principal first, then the school system and the police. It’s not too late.

    Yeah, this is not a matter to be taken lightly. At the very least, she needs to report this to either her parents or the school administration. Especially if this happened while they were alone in a classroom, there are some serious legal issues here. I wouldn’t say she needs to go as far as getting a restraining order (which may or may not be doable), but she definitely should report this to the proper authorities.

    This is for her brother. Wow. What a terrible attitude. How about how SHE was harmed for life by this incident? You think that this damage wasn’t enough just because she wasn’t raped?! She was one step away from it! How about how she’ll never feel safe again? How about the nightmares that come with being attacked? It’s sure easy to say nothing bad happened when you aren’t the victim in all this.

    Let’s put you in this situation now where you are sexually assaulted by someone bigger and stronger than you. Let’s say a coach or man traps you in a class room after hours or a bigger football player student and grabs your stuff. I bet you wouldn’t feel so casually about sexual assault then.
