But hey why does context matter when you can whine that men are the most oppressedest in the world because a company tries to do something, anything, to prevent the proliferation of violent rape in their country.
Uh yeah, actually at least I did, but hey why does knowing about anything before you speak about it matter when you can just make assumptions about a bunch of people so you yourself can whine and go off on a self-righteous little rant about strangers that’s not even accurate but just an overblown exaggeration?
Anyway, guess what, dude? This isn’t fire - you can’t fight sexism with more sexism. It’ll just create more problems down the road, kind of like what we have in the west now. Then again, India already has that problem considering the fact that when they tried to make their rape laws gender neutral, feminists fought successfully fought against it and so the status quo remains where it’s still not legally possible for a woman to rape a man.
And no, this isn’t me trying to claim “men are the most oppressed in the world”. There’s better solutions to societal problems than adding more inequality.
P.S. Did you like…just go through the notes looking for anyone who just reblogged it at all? Because as far as I remember, I don’t believe I actually said anything either time I reblogged this post. If you did then that just adds a whole new level of sad to this. If not, my bad memory strikes again but this is still sad.
This entire thing is stupid. This is one of the many reasons why we can’t move forward. Because there’s always that one person who does extreme shit like this and make a bad impression for everyone else. We don’t need pink seats, we don’t need to put men in blue seats in the back of a bus. We’re all equals here, which should mean all of the seats are open to anyone. This is seriously stupid.
Extreme: seats reserved for women to give them some modicum of protection from sexual assault and rape.
Not Extreme: sexual assault and rape.
In what universe are women equal in India?
Women in India are brutalized on public transport regularly, and there are several cases of gang rape that took place on buses that made worldwide news. This obviously isn’t addressing the structural problem of rape, but if it helps even one woman it’s worth it. Fuck those saying this is “sexist”. Maybe if those men didn’t rape then they wouldn’t have to have this.
That guy is a fucking idiot. Does he really think that separating men and women is sexism against men? WHY? HOW?
Women: Men have brutalized us for centuries and not even our public life is safe from violent rape and murder at their hands.
Bus Company: We’ll put a slight restriction on men to help you prevent that.
Men: That’s unfair! What about equality!
The POINT IS THIS IS GOING TO SOLVE ANYTHING
Youre a retard please get off tumblr
So segregating bus seats was a big problem when it was done under Jim Crow, but a “slight restriction” when Indian officials do it by gender to protect women.
If the men really want to gang rape a woman to death how will pink bus seats stop that? What’s stopping these horrible rapist from just crossing other and grabbing her? “Oh no she’s in the pink seats we can’t rape her” like really? teach you bus driver’s to give a shit, put guards on the buses or give women better ways to defined themselves but how will pink seats really help?
That’s my thing^ like I get that rape is a serious problem on Indian busses but I’m not sure how pink seats are going to deter rapists
