I made myself an easy target by not dancing like everyone else (it was at a school disco)
I should have been more forceful the first time he touched me
I should have been more careful
I should have fought back harder
okay i used to do this, and basically you gotta counteract this list with another list of reasons why it wasn't your fault. like
  • i was young
  • i didn't know any better
  • men should know better than to sexually assault and rape girls
  • i did what i had to do to not get killed (fighting harder could have gotten you killed)
  • being more forceful the first time he touched me probably would have just angered him more
