    I do not believe that everyone “assumes or jumps to the conclusion” that this is a male on female issue. While a breakdown of the numbers may be interesting, it loses sight of the issue at hand. Inappropriate contact or unwanted advancements towards another person is the big picture. The increase in the reporting rate may very well be a good thing. It may be a sign that those who have been a victim, regardless of their sex or who the perpetrator was, may be more likely to take the issue to the appropriate personnel and file a report without fear.
