Vishaka Singh: A Direct Blow To Sexist Comments On FB

Actress Vishaka Singh Shames a man for his sexist comments on FB

vishakha-shirt [Sony PSP]I am finding it a little confusing whether to call it a lecherous or a sexist comment. I am not really sure how to stage this, but the moment we hear this, it sounds awful to the ear and more horribly so thinking how cheap women are looked at by these specimens.

A file photo of Vishaka Singh received a rather unsettling comment.

The man named MD Mustakim Saifi as per the FB profile thought it would be rather amusing to leave a comment

“Nice looking and nice b***s”

It was about time these lecherous or sexist comments received a tight slap right on the face and Vishaka reportedly replied.

“For your general knowledge, Yes, All women have breasts. Your mother, sister, wife, grandmother, aunts, daughter, friends. All of them included. Do you walk up to them and say ‘nice b***’? Feel sorry for you. Have the guts to say it on my face?? Else, get off my page.”

We have all been reading about women abuse in public transport, eve teasing, bullying and sometimes even ragging. Not really sure where this stems from.

  • We are a rich country with a rich culture and a rich tradition. The blame doesn’t go there.
  • We are a well educated country, our movies are not that bad, they don’t promote speaking so cheap about fellow human beings.
  • Our education is also not that bad, we have studied the religious books which talk about worshipping women.

So, where does this audacity and cheap behavior actually stem from? What gives some stranger the liberty to talk about a woman like that in public?

It is horrible when someone blames the society or men or any community as such. But when people out there are doing it with such impunity and carelessness, what choice do the victims have than treat the whole community like that?

When does the whole perception stop of woman as a commodity and rather this goes to an extra level where they assume a sense of ownership about their feelings. It is very appaling to see people react in such disgusting ways, and on a public forum like FB.

I am sorry, if you are looking for a solution to this, I am also in the same boat as you. I don’t really know what the exact solution to this is. Maybe public shaming of these people?

  • Maybe public shaming of these people?
  • Making an example out of them?
  • Education?
  • Imprisonment?

I am not sure what really works but I get a feeling that the solution might be in a mix of these above things. This whole nonsense has to stop. Vishaka was one woman who took that step and came out in public. But there are a lot of silent spectators who suffer because of the insensitivity of these idiots.

Women are not the weaker sex and they are not to be pushed around like victims as well. There has to be something better than that, there has to be a certain responsibility for this all. Or else, everything just goes off as a viral news on the media.

  1. Indiscipline and the feeling of superiority may be keeping these things going on. A mix like the one you mentioned should stem the flow but to completely change it, we need a change of mindset, my dear sir.

    Public shaming definitely helps. I also wonder whether these are real profiles or not, because people with such mindset are generally cowards and likely to make such comments from behind the cover of fake profiles.
