“Don’t make law against Rape – It’s our right”, says women!
Posted July 21, 2012on:
Here goes all the feminists up in arms shouting “don’t make rape laws gender neutral”. What I failed to understand is, why should we give legal immunity to certain people for committing or being party to a crime? Is it a women’s right to sexually assault men and boys? Read “Can a woman rape a man?”
Even the most conservative muslim society in pakistan have reported such incidents and they made their laws gender neutral. Read “3 women ‘dupe, kidnap, rape’ man in Karachi”
Some are claiming that there has never been any report of women raping a men and boys in India! If there is no law to protect men and boys from rape by women, where should they make a complaint and what report can we expect to come out? Apparently, the social stigma that men face in this regard is multi-fold bigger than what women face. Even sharing the ordeal will only end up in shaming comments and more distress.
Just because Amir Khan conveniently ignored the sexual assault of minor boys by adult women doesn’t mean that it is not happening anywhere in India. A friend of mine told me that, he was “sexually used” by an adult woman in his family when he wasn’t even aware of what is going on. Women sexually abusing men at work place is also increasing; our government not recognizing it as a crime has given these female perpetrators an unprecedented confidence in crossing any limits whatsoever.
This is the era of slut-walks and pub-bharo demonstrations. Recently Pune police reported that more than 74% of rape cases reported last year were consensual sex. When the relationship breaks up, it becomes “rape”. India is going through a sex revolution and western culture (better say ‘western culturelessness’) is widely getting imported. National Commission for Women chair person mentioned about the dynamics of revealing attire and sexual offenses. Interestingly, all feminists are up in arms against chair person for their right to wear whatever they want and some even want her resignation! I’m not here advocating to dictate anyone’s lifestyle, but what I’m trying to point out is the double standards of feminists who are pro-western when it comes to lifestyle but when it comes to law making they take a U-turn and suddenly become anti-western! By wearing the mask of “abla-naris” and going for pub-bharos/slut-walks is making themselves nothing but clowns.
I see all these as a drama; a drama to hide the real catastrophic catch in this amendment. What this amendment does is to consider even the minor sexual offenses and give the same amount of punishments as the soon to be old “Rape”. One of the most weird clause in this bill says, continuously following a girl, loitering around a woman’s house, calling her phone repeatedly etc will also come under the umbrella of “Rape”/sexual assault. Which means if a woman complaints that a man is always seen around her house, that man may get 7+ years of imprisonment! Considering the magnitude of horrendous abuse of other women centric laws like IPC 498(a) and Domestic Violence Act, this amendment will definitely be catastrophic to Indian men. Already soaring male suicide rate is going to explode.
Folks, this is not a man vs woman fight. This is a conscious and deliberate attack on humanity itself. The central command center of India is not parliament. Those who sit there are proven to be not serving the people of India. Do your own analysis on the number of woman centric laws that got passed in past 5-10 years. It is all meant to dismantle the very genuine human relationship between a man and woman. It is designed to break all kind of man-woman bondage and mutual respect. Remove the binoculars of gender bias and try to see the bigger picture.
