It’s been quite a few years since I have been observing gender discrimination in society and all these years, the only one thing that I have found common is, people, either favor male dominance or female dominance. The former one is quite often observed not just in rural areas but also among those who live in big societies with a narrow mindset. The latter one is becoming more trendy in urban areas probably because they now have terms like FEMINISM to justify their point and make it sound a little cooler & modern. Half knowledge is indeed a dangerous thing !!
And this is not it.
In fact, amidst all this buzz, somehow we have completely overlooked the LGBTs for we have never considered them as part of human species. And then, we proudly announce ourselves as modern and well educated. Isn’t that strange? Isn’t that inhuman?
There have been countless rape cases, domestic violence, acid attacks, and more such inhuman acts. But the question that arises is how many of those really get registered? Further talking about the registered ones, how many of them are really true? And those which are really true, how many of them get justice? Out of the barely justified ones, how many of them get justice on time? The discrimination has reached a level where a female rape case is mourned until years but a male rape case is mourned just for 24 hours on a Whatsapp story after which nobody even gives a damn to get justification for it.
And how about LGBT rape cases? Have we ever even witnessed such a case? NO, because this community is not given space even in media. How is it possible that no one under the LGBT category ever got raped? Isn’t that strange to notice this fact? Because none of us has ever accepted them as a part of this society, hence, no news on their rape, in fact no news at all.
It’s high time that we as humans raise our voice against every inhuman and brutal act, be it a crime, be it misusing a gender to put false allegations on the other one. Both are equally wrong and equally punishable. No Law or order can stop the crime, none of the amendments in the constitution can bring equality until and unless we as an individual change our mindset and understand the importance of it.
I’m neither here to support a gender nor to suppress the others but bring people together to understand the other gender’s point of view before considering theirs as superior. We have all been taught the lessons of Gender Equality during our education but unfortunately somehow we have forgotten to register it in our practical part of life. Empowering all the genders equally keeping in mind the ethics and making sure that we don’t suppress women in name of tradition while men in the name of feminism, and most importantly accept LGBTs like the other two genders, as for me that goes without saying & so should it for all.
I would really like to know what do you all think of it. If you think that an incident witnessed by you isn’t too good to ignore, please share in the comment section and contribute to spreading awareness. What’s your call on it?
