How severe does the sexual activity have to be before it is considered harassment?

Excellent question. To be considered “severe” enough to constitute sexual harassment, the activity must be serious enough that a “reasonable person” would find it offensive, i.e., if an overly sensitive person considers something sexual harassment, it does not necessarily make it so (asking a co-worker out on a date without persisting if the co-worker refuses, for instance).
