Enter: The Dame
Me (confused): Are you talking to me?
Baleful: Yes you know I’m talking to you: can you sit properly?
Me (confused): Properly how? What do you mean?
Baleful: Why are you moving when this girl sat down next to you?
Me (now angry): If you could see, I moved away from her, not towards her. Even now, I’m nowhere within touching distance. Besides, this lady is not complaining – what’s YOUR problem?
Baleful (taken aback): Sit properly. Move out of that seat.
Me (enraged): WHAT? I paid for this seat, and it’s not a reserved-for-women seat anyway. If you have a problem, you move here and let me sit where you are sitting right now.
(In the meantime, the girl had, out of embarrassment, moved out of her seat)
Baleful (now having a staring match with me): Can you look properly?

The problems of feminism
I have often seen women going out of their way to behave as if they are entitled to some kind of special treatment by the very virtue of being a woman. Why does it have to be that way?
As champions of equality, women, and among them especially feminists, should demand to be treated on par with men, not demand special privileges. On top of that, some women always presuppose that men must be at fault (cherchez l’homme, anyone?) Just a few days ago I had a long online discussion with a lady who went on and on about how all men are more sexually charged than all women and therefore more to be blamed for all crimes – the leaps of logic from being more sexually charged (itself a troublesome proposition) to being guilty of ALL crimes is a clear indication of the mentality of such women. I shudder to think of cases where such a woman would be allowed to handle jury duty, or if she ever had any kind of role in a criminal or civil trial – her ideological inclinations would clearly weigh in on the judgment.

This is what comes of watching too much TV
A late night potboiler TV show recently brought up the case of malafide dowry cases and how they can ruin a perfectly decent family. I agree that for far too long it has been women who have borne the brunt of patriarchal customs, but it definitely does not mean that they can now turn the tables on men and their families, and start getting them locked up in jail for settling petty issues! For every man who abuses women, there would be ten who respect them and treat them with love and…well, RESPECT! Such laws should be amended so that the burden of proof should lie on the woman that there indeed WAS a dowry problem, and then on top of that women carrying cases proven false must be dealt with severely as a menace to society and treated accordingly.
What’s your opinion? Do you think laws meant to protect women are being misused? Do you believe some feminists end up becoming proactively anti-men? We’ll be waiting for your comments.
