Because a person was not physically, violated authorities do not considered it serious. As with the Teresa Harris case, because there was no physical harm her case did not stand in court. Jokes are not considered to be harassing maybe just offensive. When sexual jokes about women are repeatedly told, especially if the person has told the offender once that they

For example, the poem “The Ballad of the Long-Legged Bait” is about a fisherman he probably saw around growing up in Swansea. In 1934 Thomas began moving between London and several villages where he started drinking a lot and “epitomized the raucous image of an artist” After WW II, Thomas began writing more short stories rather than poetry (Gunton and Harris 358).
