Hey girl, the crime is yours !!

When you convey that your are available by wearing short skirts and roaming freely at night, of course men will be seduced. If you are raped, the crime is yours !!

How can women work late nights? You are supposed to make dal and roti for dinner and not be a doctor who is saving a life or a Software developer who is putting Indian IT in the world map. The crime is yours !!

How can you even imagine that you are independent? Your dad, brother or husband must always be along side. People like me, who do not have a sibling or lost their dad early, must never step out of the house. If you do, men have all rights to molest you. The crime is yours !!

When a guy proposes his love to you, the first thing you must do is, thank him for being your super hero and immediately accept him as your savior(not just husband). If for silly reasons like your education, ambition, family acceptance or interest on another man(most silly), you refuse his proposal, be prepared for an acid spa. The crime is yours !!

If someone on the road or at work, remarks on your sexual interest or body parts, you must appreciate it as his talent and taste in literature. How stupid of you to think it is an abuse? The crime is yours !!

Can women think of “Having Fun”. Boys are supposed to have fun. Not you !! Molesting and raping women who venture out at night is not even categorized as having fun. In fact, the guys are teaching those shameless girls a good lesson. Men have the liberty to even pee in public. But mind you, even if your neck line is a millimeter deeper or your skirt is an inch shorter than Indian standards, boys can make some mistakes. Do not dare to blame them. The crime is yours !!

When a guy tries to touch you inappropriately, fall on his feet and tell him “Brother, I am your sister. I am sorry for wearing wrong clothes. Please forgive me.” If you do this with tears in your eyes, he will give you a slap or two as punishment and pardon you. If you scold him or try to put up a fight, he will of course get angry and rape you. So now you know. The crime is yours !!

Most Indian girls face molestation quite early, even before they start understanding what sex is. All the breast squeezing, back patting and hip pinching that happen in places of worship, buses and market places; are they also because of women? Of course !! The crime is yours !!

So what about the 5 year old girl who was harassed at school? She smiled at her bus driver that morning and he found the tiny smile inviting. The crime is not his. The 50 plus lady who was raped and killed by her driver who was younger than her son? She did not give him the Diwali bonus and so he decided to teach her a lesson. The crime is not his. The girls who were touched at all wrong places, in the middle of the road during New Year celebrations? Who in the first place, gave women the permission to celebrate New Year. The crime yours, girls !!

So next time you see a kid, girl or lady being harassed, just choose to call her shameless, speak ill of her character(like many men do as usual) and walk your way. When your buddies are having fun touching girls at crowded places, do not be disgusted or argue with them. Just join the fun. Guys singing wonderful Bollywood songs that clearly explain the physical features of a lady? Appreciate literature. Even if she cries for help, don’t bother. Do not waste a second in shouting at the guy or fighting with him.

After all, the crime is hers !!
