    More context is needed. But, yeah, there are a lot of places at college where that would be totally inappropriate to ask. And if the asker doesn't know it, then it's a good time for them to learn it.

    They're old enough by that time to have a sense of when it shouldn't be asked, so no pity if they get in trouble for it.

    Amelia is correct. More context is needed.
    Who asked you? A close friend, just a classmate, never met the person before.
    What was the situation? Social setting, in class, etc.
    What was the conversation prior to the question being asked?
    Context in which the question was asked. (was the person joking, serious, trying to get under your skin?)
    Lastly, what was your response?

    imo, Sexual Harassment should not be tolerated. If you felt you were, you should have made it clear that you did not appreciate the question.

    That is a very context specific assertion, as well as poorly worded. If you are normally a cranky sort and a friend asks you "did you get laid or what?", to try to ascertain the reason for your sudden change to a positive attitude, then no.

    I think it's a bad idea for colleges to create safe spaces for people. if they do that then the people graduating from college will not be well adjusted for adult life.

    My leaving the conversation does not indicate you won. It means that real life took priority, or I have just tired of your idiocy.

    Alright, so then in college I should be allowed to slug somebody and not get in trouble.

    You realize that you can't "press charges" against someone the first time they harass you, right? You have to tell them in no uncertain terms that this conversation is unwanted and they need to stop. If they don't stop, then you will have the basis of a civil case. You can still report the first time to your campus but I'm not sure there will be any action taken.

    Sexual harassment is a civil issue, not criminal. Believe it or not, there are no laws against sexual harassment at all. The only way it becomes criminal is if someone puts hands on you.

    When you say "press charges" are you accusing them of a crime or of simply violating the policy of a particular workplace or school?
