Okay! Let’s talk about it. Was it really?
The unborn delicate human like life living in the womb of her mother, unaware of the talks the outsiders were having. ‘Is it a girl?’ ‘I’m afraid so.’ ‘Oh no. I think we should go for abortion.’ And days later she confronted death even before she was born. Ironical, isn’t it? Do they say that the safest place you’ve ever lived in is your mother’s womb? Unfortunately, not for all. Even if you’re giving them a life, it’s not yours to take. Now, was it her fault that she was a SHE? Or was it even a fault?
It was nearly a year since she moved from her “safest place” to a world full of demons. At a party, playing with other kids, suddenly a pair of claws grabbed her. In the dark, she felt pain, a lot of pain. Not understanding what was happening, she cried. Seriously man, do you have so much lust filled in you that you are no human anymore? That you can’t even keep your hands off a toddler who has not even grown boobs yet? Who barely knows how say mamma? Who can’t even stand still? YOU are a devil and was it her fault? Was it her fault that she has a vagina?
All grown up, she headed for the office in a dress little bit above the knees. Waiting for the public transport, she noticed a pair of dreadful eyes staring at her. Then a man in boxers called out to her and indicated “You should not wear such inviting clothes if you don’t want attention”. Tell me, what exactly are “inviting clothes”? Measured by length? Then, oh boy, the man was seeking more attention in that case. Was it her fault that it was a hot summer day? Was it?
She stepped out of high school and they got her tied to a lifelong bond with a boy she barely knew. She longed to study but she was merely a liability. She got raped every now and then (it is a real thing called marital rape*). But she was just a little child afraid to raise her voice in this unjust society. Was it her fault that she crossed the legal age for marriage? Was it her fault that she turned eighteen?
Answer me now, was it really their fault?
We live in a society where a change is needed, a change of mindsets. Some people (including all genders) just don’t seem to be reasonable. They point out to any ridiculous thing to make it a girl’s fault when something happens.
We want and need to change, people.
I do not say that victims are always girls or they are never the criminals or others do not suffer. I’m not even being a feminist here. I’m only trying to highlight some wrong happenings of the society. Not intended to offend or point out anybody.
