Harassment covers a wide range of behaviors of offensive nature. It is commonly understood as behavior that demeans, humiliates or embarrasses a person, and it is characteristically identified by its unlikelihood in terms of social and moral reasonableness. In the legal sense, these are behaviors that appear to be disturbing, upsetting or threatening. Traditional forms evolve from discriminatory grounds, and have an effect of nullifying a person's rights or impairing a person from benefiting from their rights. When these behaviors become repetitive, it is defined as bullying. The continuity or repetitiveness and the aspect of distressing, alarming or threatening may distinguish it from insult.
Harassment is a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome behavior intended to annoy, disturb, intimidate, or cause fear to another person. This behavior can be verbal, written, physical or electronic in nature and often involves bullying, discrimination, stalking, abuse or personal attacks.

It can happen in various environments such as workplace, school, online forums, community and home.
