Sex objects

A huge group of guys molested two girls outside a pub in Juhu on the new year's eve. Who is to be blamed? The police? or the guys? .. some of them would even say that the girls are.

In my opinion, the cause boils down to a variety of reasons, the most important being the basic mindset of men in India.

The tendency of looking down on women, considering them as objects. Objects of fulfillment of carnal desires. Objects of reaffirmation of one's 'manly self'.

Men think they are the superior sex. But a group of people who constantly need to remind themselves that they are superior cannot be anything close to that.

The cause of the episode is the same as why women are stared up and down at public places. And the same as why most of the abusive words in Hindi are about women - mothers and sisters.

  1. Very nice Aditya. You are so correct.

    It is a fact that we consider women/ girls as "Items" and our favourite time pass is "Bird "-watching.

    By this we bring down their status to just an object or an animal.
