Don't get raped or don't rape?

Rage. Anger. Tears. Pain. Millions of thoughts forming a whirlpool. This is not just about Delhi gang rape. This is about every woman, every girl in our society. I believe the men who do this are psychologically challenged. We somewhere fail to understand that no one is safe. I’m sure every girl has a little story of harassment, abuse and more. We live in the world where it is fine to use abusive words (think of all those gaalis you use) but it is not okay to talk about reproductive system, safe sex and periods. Heck we live in a country where they want to call “Slut-walk” Besharmi morcha but they are ashamed of the word “slut” and still not ashamed enough to abuse a woman.

Someone is losing her life…This is the death of humanity!!  It is not that they couldn’t have gone to a prostitute if all the wanted was sex. It is not just sex it is more than that … cruel minds who feel the sense of satisfaction by harming someone. I have seen many hitters in my life. A guy who will just hit a girl and run away, has happened to me, to my friends, mother, aunts and well I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t faced such an ugly mind ever.

They are amongst us and we are letting them be free. When I see negative comments, when I see people blaming a girl’s clothes hitting that person with a metal rod (I know I shouldn’t say this but when this is the fact)!

I don’t expect that the system will change in a day. I don’t expect police to help us all. I don’t expect media will fight and win for the people. No one mostly cares, none from these. We need to care, we need to understand and we need to fight. Today, tomorrow and everyday.

Hang them. Kill them. Throw chemical on them. Do whatever.

I would be surprised if the rape victim doesn’t get justice but someone trying to kill the rapist does.
Alternatively let us be more open. Let’s talk sex, understand protection, periods and safety. Let us address the mental issues today. All these are the small steps for better tomorrow.

If she is dressed like a prostitute think of paying her not raping her!
