Last night at a club I was groped by two men. I was complaining to my boyfriend about this and he asked if I was telling him this to make him jealous and pointed out that I do lead men on by smiling too much (!).
I appreciate that this experience is on a far smaller scale than many but I would love to find some easy to read, idiot proof literature on victim blaming to show my boyfriend how dangerous this attitude is.
