I had a strong argument with someone on a social site. His opinion was somewhat like this - Nowadays even if we warn girls/ladies about dangers, they respond to it with abhorrence (loathing - I think I have used the word with correct substitution in English). But I responded saying, it's not a good procedure to judge woman kind by taking just one or two instances.
I also put forward some of my ideas while the discussion progressed. The main thing is - We often advise our girls to do this, don't do this etc for many centuries repeating the same story of leaf and thorn. But why can't we take a step forward and think, why can't we prevent that thorn? Isn't prevention better than cure? Aside girls, why can't we cultivate good habits in boys as well since early childhood, such as to protect girls, to respect the opposite gender as well, how not to behave with them etc etc.....If so it can bring big changes to society in future generations......
He believes, it's girls who should always remain vigilant. If SOMETHING HAPPENS SHE SHOULD NEVER BLAME BOYS because she didn't care?
Why advices to our girls only in our society? Can a person who dislikes such gender-biased comments be a feminist? In your opinion who is a feminist?

|Kalyani's post disturbed Arunima's post...hehe.... So sad, I think you are talking about Trupti Desai. If I get a gun I will fire her. As per Hindu traditions we follow a few things. As Lord Ayyappa is a Brahmachari, and the presiding diety was installed so, women can't enter there. If you believe in a particular religion, you are bound to follow many things bound to it. We Kerala women have no desire to enter here. Then what the hell is she doing here. If you take a poll, I don't think not even 10% Kerala women will support this move if she is a Hindu. - Sandhya Rani - 3 years ago|
