For all those elite women spouting Mardaani on social media (postShenaz Treasury‘s post) claiming we dont need men to protect us- because they are tough enough to protect themselves from rapists & butchers- because their parents have raised them to be proud & strong & so they are perfectly equipped to hit back at anybody who’s ever done them wrong & blah blah blue blue…
Stop in your all your self glorification & back thumping please. And pause for a moment. Because this is not about you at all. Its about them . its not for you – its for them
Its about the girls found raped and hanging dead from trees. For Nirbhaya who died because a juvenile rapist (that the law currently protects ) shoved steel rods into her body & ruptured her intestines. For all the girls who are raped in taxis buses and on the streets everyday. For those who are followed & eve teased & harassed… for the acid attack victims… its for those, who for you – the tough karate woman- travelling in your air conditioned chauffeur driven cars- are nothing more than a days depressing headline.
SO we DO need Men you see. And we need women. We need humanity and we need compassion. We need the naysayers to back off and the true voices to be heard
And MOST of all we need such strong laws that no one DARE EVER misbehave or treat a woman in this way again.
So so it is indeed about them. Because regardless of what parallel fictitious woman glorified world you occupy, the reality is that the people making and implementing(or not) these laws against men are still mostly MEN
