body language

Yesterday, I somehow came across this article, which discusses several studies investigating possible connections between body language and likelihood of assault. It concludes that people with assertive body language are less likely to be chosen as targets for assault. One study in particular found that "men tend to select submissive women for exploitation". I found this conclusion especially interesting, since it directly contradicts the theory that women "ask for" sexual assault with provocative dress and/or behavior.
