The Congenital Feminist…

Yet again, a feminist post after “why Mumbai hates its women?” and “the pee thing..”….I am sorry!!! I just can’t let go my feminist side off..!!

I am increasingly going ballistic over the rampant surge in eve teasing..Grrrr…* clenches fist!!* …just about everywhere you walk. anywhere!!!

a) The first types of eve teasers are those who will eye you with the most lecherous eye ever and then when you are near, they will pass the most lewd comments like “item”, “rocking babe”, “sexy”, “wah wah”, “kya maal hai”, “oiee hoye chikni” and some will take the hard work of Ahem-ing Ahem-ing their throat and shower you with not-likeable-at-all-and-death-of-the-ear-on-hearing songs!! Yes… its unbearable…it really is…I sometimes feel like smashing their skull out and giving it to them in their own hands, twisting their arms and kicking their unmentionables!!..aarghhhh..and and whip them in public *wow *....

b) The second types are the oh-so-sophisticated types!!! How?? a girl approaches..passes…and they blurt out “oh god…Pamela Anderson”. I told you the high society types!!! They will stare at you right there. Guys, the tee won’t just pop down!! For god’s sake…and when your “behind” is “in front” of them, they will be singing “Jlo”. * feels like putting them to the Gallows*….shouts *you skunk scented human…pig’s shit…having izzzat worse than a fly sitting on a hippopotamus, flea on dog’s hair, a germ worse than pseudomonas. blah blah blah.. *

No this doesn’t mean that girls feel they are the aishwaryas of the world, to think that every guy on the street catch a glimpse of them..nmnm..actually they do. They will “turn around” and look at you. And the guys on bikes..they are so in danger to lose their wink and lo, they are “la la la”. They seriously look at you while riding bikes!!! Nothing in world matters!!! And if you are wearing a really body hugging tee and a mini, they are surely meeting the Yamraj!! * ho ho ho* …(Oooops sorry, its for Santa Claus, whats for Yamraj??)

How does it feel to Adam tease, sometimes I wonder, now the phrase is gaining so much popularity!! *

*Yeah, girls do eye guys, but their statements, yes I say statements, not comments, are much more…mnmn..i don’t know…we are like “oh, what a hunk..” or something like “ Shit, he is amazing” or “He is so cute (by the girly girly types)” or “wow” or ( add more!! )…see…we are decent!!! Decently er….amorous!!!!……nothing like “chikne” and all!!! *eeekkss *…..

This invites my trademark long comment. I'll try to keep it short.

Offense, according to me, is effective only when it is taken. There might be several reasons why someone might give you offense (including weakness on their part), but if we take it and try to react, it is our weakness that is apparent. There are cases when we take offense when none is meant.

Feminism is a movement that focuses on equality of the sexes, yet if focuses more on female oppression and upliftment. This is very hypocritical. Something that focuses on equality of the sexes should not consider sex at all.

Rather, it should move towards uprooting all the social roles that are assigned to the sexes, which, according to me, are the primary reasons behind oppression of any kind.

The type of comments a person will pass upon being, ahem, excited by instincts depends on their upbringing and the social role assigned to them. So you cannot say that girls don't pass "lewd" comments on guys butts (yikes!). If a girl isn't "taught" to be "susheel", she will very well do so.

Girl you are SO right to be indignant! It crass how some men ogle women as if they are an appetiser-dessert combo. Had a laugh-worthy time reading this though :D

I hear you! I'm really annoyed by these comments. It's like you got dressed up to please them or know their opinion on your looks and style. And usually they're not hunks themselves! aargh! they're more like worthless chaps

Hehe.. That's typical me. You can call me a congenital humorless being.

Everywhere you look on the blogosphere, you'll see a post like this. Sorry that this one had to bear my brunt. :(

You write awesome! Keep writing!
