So, this country doesn’t offer safe roads and public spaces for women.
Does it, for men?
Last I checked – men get mugged, robbed, murdered, run down by imported cars on the roads of this country.
If women get raped, men get beat up and shot at – even in bright day-light, right on the road.. road rage, anyone?
If it is an inhuman violation to rape a woman, and it makes our hearts go out to her.. It is just as inhuman a violation to strip and beat up a man? Hearts don’t go out to him?
And men get just as harassed by the police as women do.
Plus, the judiciary is impartial – it delays and denies justice to men and women, alike.
Did all that change while I was in hibernation? Or am I missing something?
Oh wait.. so, is the difference that homosexuality is still a concept of the hidden minority in this country and men don’t get bundled up into a vehicle and gang-raped?
Oh no, oh no, oh no… It is about ‘honour’! It is about ‘polluting’ the women of this country – the property of the honorable, culture-abiding families of this country!
I’m soooooo sorry I took so long to get that simple point. Really, I’m terribly sorry for being such a dumb-head.. I really am!
P.S. : Now, please don’t remind me of female foeticide and dowry killings – I’m really tired of listening to that at every mention of ‘Indian women’. I’m only talking about problems that pepper spray, self-defense classes and random mobile apps for ‘safety’ allegedly solve!
