Indian men, barring a teeny tiny minority, are di*ckheads. There I said it. I hate generalizations. Nevertheless, I did it now. Why you ask? Pray, I shall tell. Things post has been brewing for a while. You might have read, heard about the girl who was allegedly raped by the cab driver. In New Delhi. The capital of India which also has the dubious distinction of rape capital of the country. It could due to reported cases. Still. Do no hold me against published, peer review accepted data. This is not a post about facts and processed data. This is an outpouring. Delhi holds a special place in my heart. I grew up in the city.
To rationalize what we see everyday in urban India, one needs take a trip in a time machine. Boys, right from a very tender age are taught to be superior. Girls are taught to be submissive. This environment is the norm. Exceptions are very few and flung far apart. Girls from a very young age start helping their mother(who would be homemaker) in the chores around the house, Boys, from what I have seen around me rarely help. This pattern is seen throughout the country. Geographically, the pattern is repeated. NO exceptions. So a girl child of ten would be helping out whereas the boy child would be free to do as he pleases. The boy is bestowed with a sense of entitlement at such a young age. Girls, are taught they are burden on the family. Why? Simple, right from that young age girls are sermonized that the duty of the parents is to find a suitable groom. And of course, there is that big elephant in the room, which goes unacknowledged but never vanishing – dowry. It does not matter from which social strata you are from. Girls and hence women, are traded likely property. So you are fed, educated, and then traded off to the most suitable guy they(the parents) can find. It does not matter if the girl likes the boy or not. Things have changed in minuscule amounts. Even in a large urbanized metropolitan cities, the scenario described holds good.
Women, hence are treated like property. To be used and abused. Contemporary Indian society is not built on equity. There is a cavernous split on how a woman is treated with respect to the man. Gender disparity on almost all levels are skewed against the woman. And this is in an urban educated setting. The rural scenario is much worse. I have seen men, of all ages, ogle and stare at women. Their lecherous strain is hard to not notice. Women are merely objects.
If you really want a society based on equity, start at home. How many of you have ever seen, while growing up, your father do the dishes? Or cook? Sweep the house? How many of you men share responsibilities? If there is an intent to change the behavior it has to start at home. People need to set an example for their children. This is phenomena that is not going to change merely by passing laws. Or even with a justice system that delivers and punishes the culprits. What we need is a shift to equity. Equity has to be taught in classrooms right from kindergarten. Until then, incidents like Delhi and other places will keep happening.
Men are dickheads because
1. They are entitled little shits.
2. They do not think for themselves.
3. They think women are the weaker sex.
4. They find it a-okay to pull their penis out and piss anywhere. Why? Because it is a man’s world. Fuck women.
5. They find it a-okay to bare their chests. Why? Because they can? Who cares about the women anyway?
6. They think that a woman’s place is in the house.
7. Women are nothing but baby producing machines.
8. Women are needed to cook, clean and do laundry. Hence, they get married.
When the average man has this mentality, how do you suppose things will change for the better?
