A 7-year-old boy has been accused of sexual harassment after punching a fellow first-grader in the groin, but the boy's mother says he was acting in self-defense. Tasha Lynch said her son was being choked on a school bus, and has been afraid to go back to school in South Boston ever since. “I think my kid was right to fight back [after he was choked],’’ she said. “He wasn’t doing anything except protecting himself.’’ A spokesman for the Boston public schools confirmed the incident had been classified as possible sexual harassment, but declined to comment it. The boy faces suspension or being transferred to another school if his actions are deemed to be sexual harassment, according to a letter from his school.
