Dear Aunty / Mummy-Ji of India,
Let’s get together and once and for all decide who is responsible for RAPE…
The 10 NOs:
- No it’s Not Short Skirts!No it’s Not Red Lipsticks!
- No it’s Not Make Up!
- No it’s Not Low Necklines!
- No it’s Not Low waisted Jeans or any Jeans (for that matter)!
- No it’s Not Low tied Saris with showing navels!
- No it’s Not Transparent Saris!
- No it’s Not Her Giggling!
- No it’s Not Her Looking at Boys!
- No (definitely NOT) her “asking for it”!
- Yes it’s Men (who rape)!
- Yes it’s Women and Men like you who justify Rape (giving any of the reasons above)!
- Yes it’s Men Feeling Threatened that their entitlement has been snatched!
- Yes it’s Men who feel that it’s their duty to show Women their rightful plate (them being judge and jury to punish wayward Women).
- Yes it’s Mother and Aunties who seem to have brought up Men Like THIS!
