Yogi Adityanath's Anti-Romeo Squads aren't helping, but harming. It doesn't protect women from sexual harassment but only curb women's right to love and of course, to prevent "love jihad"! Another way to stop empowerment.
Our Government loves empowering women. It's their favourite tag-line. But that's all it is, most of the time, a tag line. But we can smell the hypocrisy everywhere!
Sexual harassment happens everywhere from public places, to homes, to work places. While women often call out a harasser, these are the kind of responses we get. This doesn't help anyone. Please don't respond to sexual harassment allegations with more hostility.
Intersectional feminism includes everyone. It includes people of different body types, races, ethnicities, castes, religions, disabilities, genders and sexualities. There's nothing exclusive at all about feminism. It isn't feminism, if it isn't intersectional!
Dear #NotAllMen, thanks for "helping" us and "allowing" us to do things. It really makes us feel empowered to know that you're voluntarily not being another obstacle for us. Seriously, thanks for all the support.
A comic aimed at people asking me to be 'responsible' about sending nude photographs. No, I will send irresponsible nudes. It is not a shame.
Holi is a fun festival. It's full of colour and food. Don't dampen someone's spirit by ruining the festival for them. Don't use Holi as an excuse for sexual harassment.
Since the moral police are this stupid, maybe we should take advantage of it? To any couple who is facing backlash and opposition from their family about their choice in partner, use Valentine's day to your advantage. Get married, and make the moral police explain it to everyone.
Sit straight, look pretty, keep quiet, wear this, tie your hair like this, study hard, get married etc etc etc. On and on we get instructions telling us to behave a certain way to be a woman. But can the biology of a person really determine their behaviour? Can we just leave women alone and let them be who they are? (That sounds easy, right?)
Parlour aunties have this amazing talent of shaming you by asking you the simplest questions. It's just one of the examples of everyday sexism. Though you can't really blame them for thinking that only married women should have sex (or only women who have sex get Brazilian waxes). It's so intrinsic to our patriarchal society.
