I am watching Gandhi on an Indian TV. Today is the Independence Day of India. TV channels are celebrating the day. Gandhi is the father of the nation. Showing Gandhi is part of their celebration. Gandhi is an award winning well produced well directed film. The film won eight Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Richard Attenborough), Best Original Screenplay (John Briley) etc. The film also got Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
I always wonder how the film got so many awards when an important part of Gandhi’s life was ignored. Who knows why the film did not show Gandhi’s sex experiments or Celibacy tests! Gandhi’s sex life is very important to know Gandhi the person. Gandhi started sleeping and bathing naked with young naked girls since 1906. He continued to do that until his death in 1948. 16 to 19 years old young girls were forced to sleep with him every night. Manuben, one of the girls who had to sleep with him, wrote her diaries. She described how she was cursed if she ever hesitated to get naked. Gandhi got angry with her whenever she expressed her desire to marry someone. It was possible for Gandhi to do whatever he liked because he was extremely popular and also because Indian society was deeply misogynistic. There was no proof that those girls were not molested by Gandhi. The girls were asked to keep their mouths shut.
Gandhi also used the girls as his walking sticks.
I wish I could have a Chimpanzee’s memory!
There is a hell of a lot of women are as bad as men.
A Republican lawmaker Cathrynn Brown in New Mexico introduced a bill that would require victims of rape to carry their pregnancies to term in order to use the fetus as evidence for a sexual assault trial or face charges of “tampering with evidence.”
Under House Bill 206, if a woman ended her pregnancy after being raped, both she and her doctor would be charged with a felony punishable by up to 3 years in state prison: The bill says, “Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion, of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime.”
Cathrynn Brown should know that a DNA paternity test can be done as early as the end of the first trimester of pregnancy. No woman needs to carry her pregnancy to term for it.
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez advanced a proposal to require women who become pregnant from rape to prove they were forcibly raped in order to qualify for childcare assistance.
Some say, “it establishes in state law a narrow definition of rape. It puts a heavy burden on women who have been raped and are now struggling economically to support a child.” Another opinion is, “it would force women who have left violent domestic partnerships, who were date-raped, who were impregnated as a result of incest, or through other “non-forcible” but nonetheless equally violent and denigrating means of sexual violation to first re-engage with their abusers to seek child support, putting control of their lives back into the hands of someone by whom they were violated in the most profound sense of the term.”
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) has introduced the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 61) which would stop the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from providing federal family planning assistance to abortion businesses until they certify they won’t provide and refer for abortions. She said, “As a woman, I believe America deserves better than abortion. America shouldn’t celebrate abortion and our taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, who profit from the destruction of human life with taxpayer money. It’s fiscally irresponsible and morally indefensible.” The bill would “prohibit family planning grants from being awarded to any entity that performs abortions.”
What a pathetic anti-choice freak!
These women do not believe in women’s human rights. Seriously, as a woman I am ashamed of these women!
