Adult content. Please do not read any further if you think you are not mature enough to discuss about sex, men and women.
It is at the moment we start to talk about equality between men and women; we unknowingly acknowledge that there is discrimination between the same.
Are you a feminist – a supporter of the women’s liberation movement?
For People who don’t know about the feminist movement-
Feminist movement – The definition. (Courtesy- Wikipedia)
The Suffrage movement (also known as the Women's Movement or Women's Liberation) is a series of campaigns on issues such as reproductive rights (sometimes including abortion), domestic violence, maternity leave, equal pay, sexual harassment, and sexual violence. Feminism is a struggle against sexist oppression. It is necessarily a struggle to eradicate the ideology of domination that permeates Western culture on various levels.
So, now that you know about the feminist movement- tell me-
Are you a part of it?
Do you want to be a part of it?
Do you know what I think? I think feminist movements can never be a lasting solution for what we have in our hands. And what we have in your hands is a society – with manifestations of century long prejudice not only in habits, customs, religion and culture but the depth to which things are predetermined is so colossal, that even the language that we speak has its scars.
How else am I to explain why people when afraid are termed as pussies? Or the fact that people when they behave idiotically without any consideration for others are called as a prick?
Sexual discrimination like any kind of discrimination is a sword without a handle. It doesn’t really matter whether men use it against women or women use it against men, both will always end up hurt.
I am not heartless & insensitive because I am a male nor any girl is gutless just because she is a female. Grow up. I ask for how long are you going to believe in those age-old agendas.Agendas that are too silly to say that things like them even exist – Like,
---If married people can have sex and unmarried people cannot, then “Is Marriage - a publicly punched license to have sex?”
---If women who are good to look & are sexy create the desire in men to molest them, then “Are men, such wimps that they don’t have any control over themselves?”
---If divorced women always finds it hard to get remarried than divorced men. Then “Does marriage tarnish women but leaves men alone pure?”
Bollocks. Complete bollocks.
I believe fighting for feminism or for the cause of women is not going to help anyone in the long run.When someone campaigns for a feminist cause, they in all their good intentions do the devils work for the devil. They separate men and women in the name of feministic ideologies. Feminist supporters and opposers make a war- a war of debates, ideologies, arguments and controversies.
And the only thing history has taught us always is that war does not yield much. Be it peace or a solution to a stigma of century’s long discrimination.
Do you really think a feminist movement---
--- Can change the attitude of a male who wants to lose his virginity before marriage but expects his wife to be a virgin waiting for him to deflower her?
--- Can make every man realize that rape is not a crime against women by against the entire fabric of humanity?
--- Can assure a married girl that her husband will love her enough to give her space for her to grow as an individual?
--- Can go save every girl who at this second, as you are reading this post is being harassed physically or emotionally?
Of course, they can’t. The Feminist movements and NGOs how much ever they want to make a difference do have their limitations. But my billion dollar question is rather unrelated to any feminist movement. It is rather simple.
------ Do girls really need saving? Or is it the rest of the world that needs to wakeup?
The question I would try to battle with in my next and the final post in the trilogy.
This is the second part of a trilogy. So people do read the first and last part to completely appreciate the second-
[Sex and the society - Part one of the trilogy]
[Sex and the society - Last part of the trilogy]
Guys, I took my time in writing the second part of the trilogy to make the argument strong and also crisp & pointed. Also I did not want to take the line of bashing up the existing system as it would rather get rhetorical as the list of discrimination and bigotries existing are endless. I wanted to question ourselves as to whats the solution to this and that I hope I have done that well. And I am not against the feminist movement. Its just that I believe that it cannot make a lasting solution. It cannot change the mentality of the all prejudiced people and thats what we immediately need in the present scenario.
I want to thanks for all the comments posted on the first part of the trilogy esp the comments of Keshi, Shakthi, Srini, Vinnie, Rajlakshi, Diya, Preposterous girl and one anonymous. I hope my second post have given you a depth of the corrupted bigotry of the society that has become ours. The comments not only gave food for my thoughts but also have raised a lot of questions in me. Guys do go through those comments in the first part of the trilogy for I think the comments gave a lot of new angles and problems we will have to counter. And I assure you I will try to find the answers to those questions & also to the questions I myself have raised in the these 2 posts in my final post for the trilogy.
And I am off to Chennai for a couple of days for an urgent work guys. I will be back by Monday. And will post the last segment by monday evening.
