In a recent TV Debate on Times Now channel, Arnab was spotted saying, “Do not throw data at me”. Had he said the same thing in some other debate, he would have been out of job by now and his journalistic career would have come to an end, but because he said it in a gender debate and his statement was against men, he is still in the job. However, in the interest of journalistic ethics, Arnab must be fired” rued Sujit Deshpande, National Coordinator for Save Indian Family Foundation, a men’s rights organization.

Understanding the torchbearers of Gender Equality

If you are not talking about “Gender Equality”, you are orthodox, insensitive, chauvinistic, misogynistic, opinionated, and many other despicable terms.

If you are talking about “Gender Equality”, you are modern, sensitive, open-minded, caring for women and many other fashionable terms.

This is the map of the modern society. This is how modern society, also known as civilized society, creates stereotypes. And since a lot is being talked about gender equality, let’s dive deep into understanding the term – what it means and what it stands for.

As far as the meaning of the term “Gender “Equality” is concerned, it’s pretty straightforward and self-explanatory – Equality of the two genders – male and female.

Gynocentric behavior in men – the biggest hurdle to their liberation

The news of Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) appointing a woman driver named V. Saritha has been making rounds these days. And the news is that she is the first ‘woman’ driver of DTC. Prior to this, uncountable number of men have applied for jobs, got them and toiled to drive the buses. But accolades? None; however, one woman joins and it becomes the talk of the town. Keeping this example aside, lets more forward.

Oppression of men is ancient and a chronic social disease which has plagued societies since millennia. However, it has never been much of a concern because inherently men are protectors and feel glorified in protecting others, especially women, by sacrificing their own lives.

Victimized and Distressed Men – Camouflaged Majority or Disguised Minority?

In a constant pursuit to the root cause of rampant and scandalous male hatred in the society, popularly known as “Misandry”, it often makes us wonder why the concept of men’s rights invokes, humor, curiosity and then dismissal of the concept as men’s rights are apparently not needed in a patriarchal male dominated society!

And in such an atmosphere, one that reeks of misandry, when one talks about community center for victimized and distressed men being run, it sure sparks a debate – “Are there enough men getting victimized?” And many more similar questions which are nothing but sweet sarcasm on the initiatives to support victimized and distressed men and are glaring examples of misandry.

Reactions like, “Yeah, I agree that the women-centric laws are being misused, but more women suffer than men and that is the reason these laws are being misused.” Or worse, “I think, we should tolerate some misuse since women have suffered since centuries”, clearly tell us that there is a huge gap in education in the society when it comes to understanding men or their problems.
