'Slut Walk' India too is bracing for it

The main caption in the picture is telling it. 'Delhi is in rape crisis'.


In 'rape capital' Delhi, 330 cases in 4 months


Unsafe Capital: 212 rape cases in first five months

Delhi govt mulls special courts for rape cases




In a single google search, I have managed these many top news on Delhi rape. Then you can imagine the ground reality and the feeling of insecurity the Delhi females are swamped with in and outside their homes.  The situation is so tyrannical that some of them do not feel safe even within the four walls of their homes.  




In her column, though, Priya Ramani asks 'Who is responsible for Delhi's rape crisis?' she does not come out with any conclusive answers, but only more questions.  The few things she is conclusive are: the aggravating situation is caused by more and more females occupying Delhi's public space as the mark of an emerging new India, the new India is eternally in clash with the old India and the transformation in the law and order systems to cope with the modern India is taking place at the snail's pace.  So it is a double insult to the rape victims that they cannot report their victimization to a sensitive Delhi police.


According to Huffpost World  'every women is allegedly raped in every 18 hours or molested every 14 hours' in Delhi


What happens in Delhi to some extent is a microcosm of what is happening all over India, or perhaps all over the world, only the level varies.  According to a 2006 international rape survey India ranks 90, U.S 10 and South Africa1. And generally all Asian nations rank low which many view is because of poor reports on rape.




Asian nations, in particular India, with their mindset that females are responsible for sexual violence by dressing up provocatively have not yet waken up from the slumber of their traditional restrictive notion that discipline is imposed from outside by powerful agencies like parents, religion and elders through invoking fear. Because the males cannot discipline themselves they confine the females to all kinds of restrictive measures. Hence the practices such as cover up bodies and hide away from men so that they are not heard or seen in public. And I very  much doubt whether this is coming truly from the Indian tradition, because India has a tradition in which men and women enjoyed compatible position and status.


However, it is a mistake to presume that it is only the men who are thinking like this, a large number of females too are conditioned to behave exactly in the same way.  They need help. Females are mens' executive agents when it comes to implementing traditional, religious restrictions.  Young girls and young women are their targets.  In the end of the day it is all jealousy and scramble for power, and wealth.    


When the females of the new India question the old authority to pursue a new way of life based on freedom and openness that was denied to their mothers and grandmothers for generations they are considered as enemies of culture and traditions.


In the U.S, or in the west in general, females have gone a long way, to claim their share of public space and to jostle with men in all spheres of life. The Indian women have to go a long way to reach somewhere nearer to that level.  The enormity of the issue is evident from the fact that the issue of rape is still not resolved fully in the western world.  Their numbers getting raped by their own fathers, brothers, uncles, close relatives and extended family members are only increasing. But they know how to react in one form or the other.






In January, this year in Toronto, Canada a Police Constable Michael Sanguinetti told a personal security  at York University that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.  Though the police man apologized for he realized that he supported the stereotypes and the myths about rape that the victims are asking for it, that did not stop walk organiser  Sonya Barnett to orgainse a 'Slut Walk' to protest against it.  She said, by that act the females were claiming the word slut. 


The walk triggered similar 'Slut Walks' all over the world including America.






No wonder the females in Delhi are bracing to do their 'Slut Walk' on 25th June.  Scantly clad women, Delhites are going to watch occupying their public space in day light.  And probably this is the start. The Indian females who suffer sexual violence including rape in other states may also be inspired by the Delhi 'Slut Walk'.




The message of the 'Slut Walk' may differ from country to country or culture to culture.  But to me the most vocal is the one you find in the above poster.  'Ask me, what I'm asking for'.  As a male if you cannot understand her as a person, ask her, what she is and what does she want. She has grown enough to explain it to you.  Take the message and move on guys.

  2. Girls everywhere and all you emasculated “men” who are trying so hard to be politically correct at the expense of your masculinity, listen up.

    Men and women are equals. This does not mean that they are equal in every single aspect. For example, men are, on average, physically stronger than women. It is much easier for a semi attractive (even a 6/10) woman to go out and get laid. The same cannot be said about men. Men have to work at it, have some skill (game) and thereby get a woman to sleep with them. It is a LOT harder for an equally attractive man to get women than it is the other way around. This is one of reasons behind why we, as a society, naturally celebrate men who are successful in bedding multiple women; while at the same time shame women who bed multiple men.

    Let us briefly visit the topic of virginity from both perspectives. Virginity in a man is not a desirable state or label when it comes to an attribute that the opposite sex wants. This is because he has obviously not been preselected by other women. However, female virginity is not looked at negatively in the least by men. If she looks decent, no man cares if the girl is a virgin or not. In fact, a female virgin is often wanted more.

    Now don’t get me wrong, men LOVE sluts. We will never turn down an opportunity to sleep with a good looking slut. Partly because she’s good in bed, partly because it’s sex. But any decently intelligent, self-respecting man will know that it is a terrible idea to emotionally involve himself with(i.e. date) a slutty girl. That would be a very dumb move. Why would any man want to get emotionally involved with a girl who’s had 15+ sexual partners? We would just be setting ourselves up for failure. There are many nice worthy girls out there who don’t have daddy issues and haven’t slept with an entire fraternity house. But, by all means, fvck the brains out of sluts in the meanwhile.

    Most guys can detect when a girl is a slut by the first few dates and by what he hears about the girl from other people and from the girl herlself. We put this information together and figure out if she is dating material or not. If not, I like most guys, will still go in for the prize but have no intention of following through with dating the dirty little tart.

    To put it simply, a lock that can be opened by many keys is a useless lock and of little worth. But a key that can open many locks is a master key and is valuable.

  6. I completely agree with the poster above. You see, the problem with modern feminism is that it has disrupted a gender equilibrium that has existed for millenia. And yes, that equilibrium had men exerting their control and superiority over women, but it was an equilibrium nonetheless that has helped the human species perpetuate and colonize the Earth. Feminism’s successful foray on mainstream culture has destroyed that balance and made it increasingly hopeless for today’s man to land a decent woman who cherishes him, let alone one who can be a suitable mother to his children.

    I will concede that some aspects of feminism are just and proper. Women should have some say of how many children they want, if they want to work, and if they want to get married (and with whom). They should not be held as sex slaves against their will. They should be rewarded based on their skills and accomplishments just like a man should, and equal pay for equal work is reasonable. However, today we have women overreaching and demanding more than their fair share. They want high positions not based on their skills but simply because they are female, continually shoving false “glass-ceiling” and unequal pay myths down our throats. They want courts to subjugate men they divorce for the most trivial of reasons, and they want to put-down and play any man who attempts to form a connection with them using a provider (beta) game that has worked for his most recent ancestors.

    Unfortunately there will be no setting back of the clock. As long as women retain suffrage, our politicians will continue to appease them for votes by refusing to scale back anti-man laws. Unfit mothers will continue to keep custody rights while fathers pay support for a child who is brainwashed against him. Single motherhoodwill increasingly be glorified. And as long as American-style capitalism provides decreasing job opportunities for men, women will continue to excel in mundane office jobs that better suit their social, emotional brains instead of the factory and engineering jobs of the past that provided men with a fair income for his entire family.

    I believe that today’s man can still restore his dominion in a world that is skewing against his favor by doing one thing: becoming a sexist. He must possess sexist beliefs for three reasons:

    1. To have sexual relationships with women who are at least as pretty as he is handsome.

    2. To assert his superiority over his female competitors in the workplace by playing the office game as well as they do (e.g. constantly bringing up accomplishments to managers, being outspoken, being two-faced, ass-kissing, and backstabbing).

    3. To get laid at all.

    In the past you didn’t have to believe that you were superior to women. The system was set up so that all you had to do was go to school, get a good-paying local job, and ask your mom to put in a good word with the neighbor’s cute daughter. The first girl you fucked would probably be your wife, you’d have your two kids, and you’d live the so-called American dream.

  7. (continued) Today this is not possible. Your father’s father would be unsuccessful at mating in today’s climate of feminism which has allowed a tiny percentage of alpha men to monopolize the best women. As American women become more obese and gross, there are fewer desirable women left outside of the alpha males’ harems. The nice guy is left with nothing but scraps—and those scraps have attitude.

    While it doesn’t look good for you in terms of marriage, at the minimum any educated, employed man in a first-world nation should be able to sleep with a handful of decent women a year. But without having sexist beliefs, he will wholeheartedly struggle in that front. Here’s what it means to be a sexist:

    Having a low level of respect for women.

    Having the belief that the genders are not equal (you should nod or smile at the following quote: “A woman can do anything a man can do, as long as a man first shows her how”).

    Not listening to them about anything.

    Studying flavors of game based on the alpha-male model, an effective countermeasure to feminism.

    Preferring the company of compliant, feminine women of different nationalities where feminism has not made strong inroads (Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, South America).

    You don’t have to hate women and you don’t have to abuse them. You don’t have to commit any crimes against them. But you must believe that you are superior and deserve more than them. With the addition of game practice, you will then be sexually rewarded for those beliefs.

    It’s a sad fact that the modern feminist withholds sex from the nice guy, disgusted with his subservience, while servicing the sexist alpha man, increasing his power and rewarding him with more sexual delights than he could have experienced since the days of Itzcoatl. The nice guy is weak and starved, left sexless and alone, a pathetic specimen resigned to the brunt of jokes in beer commercials and crappy sitcoms. If he wants to be procreate, he has no choice but to rise from the ashes a sexist. The more of those beliefs he accepts, the more he’ll get what he wants in the fucked-up world we currently live in.
