Shows like Crime Patrol, Savdhaan India, Gunah and Sansani have made a fortune out of turning trauma into entertainment, and making a mockery of these cases under the guise of 'awareness' or 'gender sensitisation'.
We are angry and rightfully so, because every time we step out in public, we have to make ourselves smaller, inconspicuous, just so that we can get to our destinations without having our bodies and space violated. That is something that cis gendered heterosexual men will never understand. So no, you don’t get to tell us what to do when we're harassed. And you definitely don’t get to decide what’s best for women.
