Trigger Warning – Rape
This is a rather interesting video from India.
While I disagree with the “Hang the Rapists” sentiment with regards to prisoner rights, I agree with the fact that rape is a weapon because it “despoils” the victim and makes them “unclean” and unable to have a happy and open life.
The thing I noticed is the age of the men who stood on either side of the argument. It’s generally the younger generation who treat women better than their fathers. While there exist people like the Shiv Sena who bemoan the fact that “complaining about being raped” is now fashionable. There are people like this who are dragging Indian misogyny out of Indian culture. It’s still got a way to go.
