Why India Rapes



Anonymous piece caputures the imagination of many on the Web




Sadly, it's for the same reasons that India bribes, honks unnecessarily, drives drunk and over speeds, why it pushes and pulls and can't form a line, why it spits and urinates where it wants and why it insists on scratching its balls before dishing out food with the same hands.

India rapes because it lets its kids throw tantrums in public while turning a blind eye, because it looks at foreigners as dollars and at Indians as trouble. It rapes because it makes fun of the handicapped, of weakness and of intelligence. It rapes for the same reason it cheats people out of their money, treats animals without respect and lives only for society.

Yes, the same society that will be the first to run you out of town, to ensure that your life is not worth living and that rape means your life is over. The same society we as Indians are in fear of and in respect of which we dare not fail our exams. Or grow our hair too long or sing a good song or wear fashionable clothes or come home too late. It's the same society that can't protect and is the first to blame the system.

The impotent system made of impotent self serving politicians, impotent police and impotent water & electricity supplier and so on. If there was no crime, the police wouldn't be able to put their kids in school. The under paid and under equipped constable is not going to risk his or her life for you. That is reality. Blame comes easy, but who are you blaming? The police that can't fire a bullet without written consent, the one that can't use handcuffs, that in most cases carries Gandhi’s dander?

I don't blame the police and I don't hail it. It's an impotent symbol just like our ruling party and the non ruling ones. I don't expect better from either and I won't cry hoarse over them either. I will however preach respect and practice respect. I will also learn to live for myself. I will also teach myself to be equal. The Indian woman herself needs to wake up to a new India. She needs to stop cowering to society, cowering to her own family and to herself. Man and woman can't function without each other. A woman can do anything a man can. It’s the man who can't give birth.

The Indian woman covers her head and her face; she eats only after her husband has eaten his fill. She is weak because she feels that she is. She needs to be shown that this 's not true. She needs to feel empowered and she needs to stop feeling like she's less than a man. The Indian man needs to learn that he is not in control, that he has no one to control. That he is not more than a woman.

There is no competition between the sexes. When the Indian man lacks personally he takes it out on the woman, physically. He takes it out on her because of his ego, because of his own lack of respect and self respect. The Indian man rapes for the same reason he has no respect for himself, in the same way he has no respect for his job or work. If he can't respect his livelihood, how can you expect him to respect anything let alone a woman?

Preach respect, teach respect, respect yourself and others, man woman or child. Rape is not sex. Sex is pleasure for both man and woman. Rape is brutality; there is no pleasure in brutalizing someone or anyone. Any man, who has ever looked at a woman and said to her, come on cover up, is as pathetic as the man who molests her. What sort of impotent men are we that we can't protect our women. How ignorant can we be that we can't stand up for her dignity and fight for her rights? Are we only looking to fuck her? Are we only looking at demoralizing her and showing her that we men can do what we want but she cannot?

Grow your balls man! And fight for your Indian woman. Stand up for her, raise her up and protect her. Get on a bus and look out for her safety. Walk the road at night and keep an eye out on her behalf. Open your ears and eyes for her so that you can protect her against trouble. Not because she can't do it for herself but because we men have crushed her for far too long and have ruined her self confidence. Our sex has let hers down. We have historically raped her mind to fear and submission. It's time now to change all that. It is time to make a change and to be the change itself.Top of Form
