Recently, a twitter poll was conducted with the above question
“Are men conditioned to make more sacrifices compared to women?” and the results were shocking as shown in the image below.
Time and again, we are reminded that this society is male dominated and patriarchal in nature. What does it mean?
It means that men live in a have-it-all world. They have all the rights and privileges and they control all the power in the world. And this is how it is justified or evidence of its presence is presented:
- Men don’t have to leave their homes after getting married.
- They don’t need to adjust with another family.
- They get inheritance in ancestral property.
- Their child gets their name.
- Their name doesn’t need to change after marriage.
While all this might be true, the following is also true.
- Men need to become financially stable before getting married.
- They need to continue to remain so lifelong, which means they cannot stop working and sit at home.
- They cannot pursue their interests as it may not generate enough income for the survival of the whole family.
- Even if their wife works, they should not expect her to share the financial load, if she does it by her own choice, well and good.
- The risk of bringing a new person into their life and family wrests entirely with the man and one wrong decision can ruin his life.
On International Men’s Day (November 19), Indiatimes had run a pro-men campaign creating awareness about men’s problems in the society through a series of images. Feminists got scared that their real agenda of male hatred would get exposed and rallied against the post. The main anti-male venom was spewed by Kavita Krishnan, known for her hatred towards men. Indiatimes bowed down before the pressure and took the post down, apologizing to the feminists.
Now, decide, if its really a male dominated world where men can’t even speak up and need to be apologetic for getting victimized.
However, here are the pictures for everyone to see. Decide for yourself.
Pointing at some of the recent incidents that made headlines, men’s rights activists questioned whether Indian men are safe on the streets. They are also upset that despite proven to be wrong, no action is ever taken on the women in question.
So, what did we learn from these cases?
The message is very clear – Men are unsafe on streets
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.
Otherwise I can see a dangerous trend setting in, wherein men are refusing to help any women fearing that she will take a picture of him and ruin his life by uploading it on social media”, says Jyoti Tiwari, spokesperson for Save Indian Family Foundation.
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.
