The SCA prohibits harassment and bullying of all individuals and groups. Harassment and bullying includes, but is not limited to the following:
Offensive or lewd verbal comments directed to an individual.
The display of explicit images (drawn or photographic) depicting an individual in an inappropriate manner.
Photographing or recording individuals inappropriately to abuse or harass the individual.
Inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, or retaliation for reporting harassment and/or bullying.
Participants violating these rules are subject to appropriate sanctions. If an individual feels subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, they should contact a seneschal, President of the SCA, or the Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman (Yes, this is an actual english word!). If a participant of the SCA becomes aware that someone is being harassed or bullied, they have a responsibility pursuant to the SCA Code of Conduct to come forward and report this behaviour to a seneschal, President of the SCA or Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.
