Anyone can be sexually assaulted, and it does not matter if you are weak or strong, withdrawn or outgoing, young or old, male or female, gay or strait, NO ONE DOES ANYTHING THAT JUSTIFIES BEING RAPED OR SEXUALLY ASSAULTED. It is important to understand that sexual assault is about power and control and not about sexual passion.
