Once again, I’m sorry
My previous post in this blog was about my outrage about some of the blatantly misogynistic material in the media. I titled it “I’m sorry, Ladies”. Think of this as a continuation post.
I’m sorry that when I saw a guy obviously trying to grope a lady in a bus or train, and let’s be honest guys, we have all even seen that, I never said a word against it.
I’m sorry that when my uncle asked a cousin to not wear jeans or tee shirt because of “what they will think”, I never told him, that “they” included him.
I’m sorry that when my granny shushed another cousin for “laughing too loudly, because its un-woman-like”, I didn’t remind her that a full-throated, happy laugh is sometimes more fulfilling than a full meal.
I’m sorry that when a video like this came on TV, I didn’t change the channel or curse the actors.
I’m sorry that I thought it was necessary for a woman to “protect” herself when going out.
I’m sorry that a poor girl is being turned into a “fearless braveheart” so that we can assuage our moral turpitude.
To the women I know, once again, I’m sorry.
