Last year the temporary Head of School, Don North made continuous comments about my affinity for Nike shorts. At first I ignored it thinking oh haha old white man humor until it didn’t stop and at one point he put his hand on my back. During this time he would joke (repeatedly) that I didn’t own a pair of jeans. Now looking back it was really weird that he repeatedly (and I’m talking repeatedly) made comments about my shorts/jeans. Maybe it wasn’t bad but it made me uncomfortable. I told my friends my concerns and a dorm parent over heard. The dorm parent told him and he then apologized to me but it was very public and made me feel shamed for even saying anything. Maybe nothing happened but still.
