Kudos to Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) V. Dinesh Reddy is the latest to adorn the “wall of shame” --He is suffering from a disease which has no cure-It’s called Premature Articulation…a predecessor to Emission Impossible! Guess he has had too little a dose of cracks and cleavages!
Even in Saudi in where in public a woman is expected to wear an abaya (a black garment that covers the entire body) and also to cover her head and hair also there has been rape reported! So, WTF DGP Dinesh Reddy? Even the visually impaired can rape!
In 2004,DM Parghi,even put a "sleeveless blouse" in obscene category!A 'pardarshak vastra' — i.e. a see-through or a transparent dress!
What is this concept of decent and indecent dressing? Some call it provocative? Or obscure?
Why this notion or critique of indecent dressing has to be limited to women only?
Some advertisements where pheromone laced cologne when used by men, attract women from miles around to ravish him--Would they(men) be guilty of rape? Or would they be innocent by reason of drug-induced insanity?
The way a woman dresses cannot be routinely cited as an incitement to rape.
The suggestion that there even is such a thing as an “Invitation to Rape” is appalling!
Why should women be judged according to the now uniquely male "reasonable man" standard?Would a reasonable man feel a woman was subjecting him to undue sexual provocation with her dress, perfume or behavior? Many men might say yes,however, I do not agree!
We are in need of a new discourse directing the focus onto the perpetrators as opposed to the victims!
Are rapists really disempowered men? Yes, many are.
Then we have the likes of the DGP, who I’m has enjoyed the voyueristic cinematic violence and lurid pornographic sequences in mainstream movies featuring hyper masculine men! Validate their masculinity, provide them with ethical and constructive outlets for expressing that masculinity, men will rape less and contribute more! This will work,but, as with so many things that are true, empowerment is only part of the answer, because there are other reasons why men rape.
Not the least among them being that millions of women idolize "heroic" rapists.
Identifying the cause of a problem, as most of us know, is half the solution.
Attacked by the DGP, the press, crucified by the politically correct gospel of intolerance, alienated by women-bashing, and disenfranchised by growing social injustice, women are targets for sick chauvinistic true believers.
Mr DGP! You have Halitosis-When was the last time you had a mouthwash? It stinks!What is it going to be next?...When a woman smiles she seduces?
You Mr DGP, are a serious case of Foot in Mouth Disease!
