Harassment: n. willfully stealing nonfearful anxietyless sensing stability
If someone is causing fear or anxiety in your life by stalking you, bullying you, or making unwanted sexual advances on you then you are being harassed. Basically harassment is interfering with your peace of mind but usually not in a violent way.
Verbally threatening your life is not only verbal abuse but a form of harassment which can be considered to be one step away from actual physical violence. The emotional trauma can be very severe and really cause you to fear for your life.
Some forms of harassment are merely annoying or very unpleasant such as cyber stalking where you get unwanted phone calls and emails.
Males frequently harass more than females since many are overly aggressive but harassment can come from either gender.
