Stop RAPE!

Sun Dec 30, 2012, 1:16 AM


Skin by CypherVisor


I have always been a proud Indian coz I  felt it is one country which has unity in diversity. But today I feel ashamed when a "girl" feels utterly unsafe and unprotected to even go out of their house in my country.

A nation-wide news of a 23yr paramedical student getting brutally gang-raped in a moving bus in the capital city of India, Delhi shook the nation and every heart of a girl in India. This is not what I wanted to see when I was a child. India is so full with talented individuals and great minds but still they run a dreadful society by infusing fear to a girl's or a woman's mind?

Please stop this right now. A girl has an equal right to breath, talk, walk and have every possible freedom as the other gender has.

Being a guy, I know that we are attracted to females more than they do. But personally I never have the feeling or even have the guts to think of "raping" someone. How can you do something like that to a human being? A guy must understand that raping a girl is not just raping her body it's raping her whole future and her dreams!

In my opinion I think most of the Indian guys still has no clue what rape really means and what can be it's outcome. A sense of rape can only be felt if you just think once that "the girl" could have been your own sister or mother! It is then you will understand the pain.

The victim (now dead) was a Hero of our nation and if we don't bring justice to her and all other women. THEN WE HAVE SHAMED OURSELVES!

I know you might be thinking to comment on this something like "we should hang the criminals", "they should be given chemical castration" or perhaps "they should be killed on sight". But will that really help to make a girl comfortable to go outside and live freely? I do not think so. It is then they will be comfortable only when guys learn about the morals of a woman and respect them.

Heartbroken..
Sid

:hug: It was heartbreaking to learn of her death. As well as the other young lady who was recently in the news from her suicide. Such young wonderful lives lost and a nation in tears. It is very moving to see the people standing together against these crimes. Hopefully there will be fewer tragedies like theirs. :heart: :(

It hurts to read the news. I don't purposefully seek it out, but it finds me on Facebook, I see articles posted and end up reading about some horrible tragedy.

I saw this one the news. I want harder punishments for rape crimes like this, arresting the five men who did this is not enough!

:iconcyphervisor:
CypherVisor Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013
But would just giving punishments to the criminals help is the question? Until and unless we are not aware of the "real" outcomes and learn some manners to behave, I don't think that's gonna help.

"Being a guy, I know that we are attracted to females more than they do. But personally I never have the feeling or even have the guts to think of "raping" someone. How can you do something like that to a human being?"

The thing is, rape really isn't about sex or attraction; sex just happens to be the weapon used. It's about power, and also, depending on the culture, "shaming" the victim. In Africa, there has been a huge problem with people thinking that they can "rape women straight". They take actual or believed-to-be lesbians and gang rape them, believing this will somehow magically make them straight. It's disgusting.

I'm so sorry for that poor woman. Hopefully, this atrocity will bring more awareness to and education about this issue. Leaving it in the dark is part of the problem.

I think part of the problem in India is there's still that sense of a woman has her place, and that if she provokes a man it's on her :/ in Mumbai, they've had problems with men pinching women through the bars in the ladies' car. It's just...that attitude that that is okay shouldn't even exist.

You are absolutely correct. And I agree to you fully. The society in some places in India are so damned that they have made the mindset of the girls that they should bear all these acts. :no:

Seriously, I wish they'd do more to make it clear women need to stand up for themselves. Stronger Bollywood heroines, more self defense classes, that kind of thing. :s

I was raped 3x before I was 10, here in the US, my first one when I was 6.
It's true, how it ruins everything about you.
I believed, at the time, that I went through that because I was a girl, so I hated being a girl when I was younger, because of how it kept happening. Older girls, usually in high school or college, think that it happens to them because they are beautiful, so then they hate being beautiful, for fear of it happening again. I didn't want to exist by the time I hit high school. A future was something that I could no longer grasp, and each day, I struggle to believe my worth. I have failed college twice because I cannot stand being so openly critiqued by teachers, it rips me apart and my depression sinks back in.

It happened more than once, because my parents didn't understand me. Because my parents didn't try to listen. It happened, all three times, at different baby sitter places, because my parents were too busy to listen. If you are a parent, and you care about rape, all you have to do to prevent it, is listen to your children. That's all I needed to avoid it.

For older girls, it's harder to say. I have learned to fight to prevent it from happening to me ever again- but while that might help in some cases, it's just better to never go out alone.

First of all, I really respect and proud to see your boldness to speak (may be with others or with me) about your own experiences. The things that you've said was really moving but trust me I am amazed to see your courage to face it. One thing I would like to say to you is that DO NOT EVER blame this act of inhumanity on yourself as you have not ever done anything wrong and so DON'T TAKE a damn from others. It is them who are wrong and not you.

I know it is easy to say such things and I know I can never really understand the true meaning of "rape" until faced myself. But you are a strong girl I can feel that. And as I said never get dishearten because of what had happened before coz it never happened NOT BECAUSE OF YOU!

I would like to give you a hug if you don't mind :hug:

Although it shouldn't be around at all.

I think this incident left us feeling crippled as a nation. I swear if another man says "It's about time someone did something" I'd let hell loose on them. Whatever that "something" means anyway?
Indian men take pride in being men, in patriarchy and in having power over women, and I can hardly see it changing in over a hundred years.

I can understand you feeling Preetika. But to be honest I have no clue how to get things better. Is it that harsher punishment will resolve it or more education is required to learn about the manners and behaviours. As mentioned by ^neurotype I guess the attitude of saying that "it is okay" in India has to be taken off.

Psychologically speaking, rape is more about power than sex. Teaching men to respect women is all good and great, but teaching them to respect themselves in the role of a healthy man is also important. It is a two way street that EVERY nation that deals with rape (which, unfortunately, is all of them) must find a way to deal with. And those ways vary based on cultural and religious differences.

I am so very sad to hear about what happened to that woman, but also so very glad that you felt strongly enough about it to say something. I hope you'll speak like this to other people you meet in your daily life. :heart: That is truly what changes the world - one heart at a time.

I always tell my friends and sister to gear up and be ready to beat the shit out of anyone if ever feel or see something like this. Girls in India need to raise their voice to fight here. (which unfortunately most of the time they don't because of social calamities) :no:

And India has very intelligent and innovative individuals. Their society deserves more!
It's all the fault of lust.

I don't really know what is causing this because being in a country with that HUGE population it is impossible to understand what is causing this. But one thing is for sure that girls need to gear up now and beat the shit out of anyone from now on.
