Sexual harassment is never an acceptable thing at work whether the harasser is male or female. It's actually the exact kind of thing that should be reported.

So if my boss were to grab my ass, it's not sexual harassment until I tell him to stop and he doesn't? I'm sorry, but that's wrong. What op's boss did was inappropriate and is sexual harassment.

I don't know what 34&37 are talking about, but yes if someone grabbed your ass in the work place, that is without a doubt sexual harassment. Regardless of you saying to stop and they continue or not. But that is an HR issue. Things like this aren't taken immediately to court.

Is this case sexual harrassment though? I've heard that its sexual harrassment if the superior makes it seem like "fuck me or you're fired" but if they just ask and you turn them down and they don't ask again its not. But I've also heard that anyone in a mangerial or superior position who requests this is also sexually harrassing the victim. I'm not sure which scenario is correct so i thought I'd just ask.

@5 Coming from a boss makes it immediately sexual harassment. If it was a coworker, a warning would be needed before this escalated to sexual harassment.

Except he didn't grab OP's ass he suggested they fuck which yes I agree is wrong on many levels and not ok in the slightest but if that was the end of it and he didn't persist than that's not sexual harrasment

#60 and others: no. A person in a position of power should not ever suggest to a subordinate that they should fuck (or proposition a subordinate in any sexual manner). It is highly unethical, most likely against company policy, and most definitely sexual harassment. Because it is OP's boss, there is already an uneven power balance. Because the boss has power/authority over OP, the threat to OP's job is implicit. And it completely undermines OP's comfort level at work. OP needs to report the boss. I cant believe, in 2015, this needs to be articulated....

First of all read his message the boss said a suggestion he didn't grab her ass and wait for he/she to reaping so u are stupid and need to learn how to reas

Grabbing ass and silently proposing fuck time is not the same thing. They're both creepy, yes, but once someone grabs your ass that's sexual harassment no matter how you look at it.

Report him. There is a zero percent chance that he either hasn't done this before or won't do it again. Yes, this is something you report on the first offense. It's not like he's gonna back off because you said "no thanks." That's not how creepy, disgusting assholes function. And yes, I'm aware it could be a woman.
