Bentong MP Young Syefura Othman has revealed that a netizen made vulgar sexual comments about her.

The netizen commented about a picture showing her visiting Janda Baik, which was recently hit by flash floods.

Young Syefura had gone to the ground to inspect damages, including road collapses at the Bentong – KL trunk road. 

The DAP lawmaker expressed surprise that such a picture could invite obscene words.

She was wearing modest clothes, a baju kurung with a long-sleeved raincoat on the outside.

In the picture, she was with the Deputy Minister of Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change, Datuk Seri Huang Tiong Sii and Ketari assemblyman Thomas Su.

She shared a screenshot of the comment in a tweet, while another Twitter user uploaded a Facebook profile picture and a photo of the alleged harasser.

Netizens were shocked by the comment and suggested that she filed a police report.

Some said it could be a fake account, as it’s not in the culprit’s interest to reveal their identity.

Sexual Harassment Is Not Just Physical

Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favours, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.

Verbal harassment that is offensive, aggressive, or intimidating can be typical sexual harassment.

It includes:

  • Catcalling and sexual or lewd remarks about someone.
  • Spreading malicious rumours about someone in a sexual light.
  • Requesting sexual favours in exchange for promotions or other benefits (also known as quid pro quo sexual harassment).

It’s not just women who are impacted by workplace harassment.

Men can also be victims of sexual harassment by women and other men.

Be sensitive and caring to victims of sexual harassment. (Pix: Feminism)
