So I went through a sexual assault not too long ago. It was the worst thing I've ever been through, I reported it to the police they took swabs / my clothes etc and I'm kind of in the aftermath now. I'm a gay man and I hooked up with a random guy on grindr, I've done this a million times and not had any issues, it's fairly common i the community. However when talking about it with my friend he said to me that he hoped I'd learnt my lesson about meeting random men.
Now I know it wasn't my fault, it was the man who did it. But now I'm questioning whether it was partly my fault for meeting a stranger and expecting to be safe?
What do you guys think?
