Everyone screaming slut and thot as she tries to reason out this very simple question: why only me?

The respect that people have for women in India is staggering at times.

The investigations were concluded. And the whole of India was waiting for the magical appearance of evidence against her being a perfectly demonic oppressor/murderer rather than a deeply flawed human being, deserving of a chance to correct herself. But to the collectively held breaths of all the people, came a short breath of a piece of truth: She did not murder him.

But rest assured, they’ll always be looking for evidence just to find one point to blame her for. One addition to an imaginary chargesheet full of venomous crimes that they dream of doing, but only add against her account, so as to hide their own hypocrisy. SSR was as much a hero, as RC was the villain; because, well, only a man can be good. A woman can’t be good because she is a slut. She sleeps with people. And that’s bad because, you know, men don’t sleep with people. Men don’t go to trips to Thailand for a lap dance. You can’t see the woman and man as both being two different people with different challenges and trying to make sense of life.

The way Mr. Goswami said: “I am the son of an Army man.” deeply worried me. Do people in the army also objectify women like he did on this occasion?

Mr. Goswami was horribly wrong to press the matters so strongly. But, he is after all, a wholly populist voice. And, I fear the populist voice is very prone to errors of judgement and misdirection.

I am not going to support him a bit more if he toes the line beyond my patience. If, for example, he starts saying all Muslims are bad, a wholly communal remark; well then, thank you very much. I’m done here. Vive la BBC.
