RAPE

*trigger warning*

CONTENT IN THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MENTIONS OF RAPE

Politician’s not just in India but all over the world have on many occasions let women down.

Be it them trying to tell women how to live, or what to do with their bodies.

Well to be fair women have always been there the subject to the society’s judgement, and society has always expected women to act exactly how they are “supposed” to.

Not trying to imply that men or any other gender doesn’t face judgment.

A recent incident at the Karnataka assembly has sparked rage amongst not only, other politicians but also the Country.

STATEMENT MADE AT KARNATAKA ASSEMBLY

Karnataka’s legislator KR Ramesh Kumar, made a statement regarding rape, which can be summarised as “AS WOMEN CANNOT DO ANYTHING AGAINST RAPE AT THE MOMENT IT IS HAPPENING,THEY SHOULD JUST LIE DOWN AND ENJOY IT”.

Why is the statement causing rage?

What a woman goes through when she is being raped , only she can understand.

Rape is NON-CONSENUAL sexual intercourse.

Rape is a traumatic incident for people, and for someone to casually advise the victim to enjoy a traumatic experience, is shameful in itself.

In India people from all ages have been raped, be it a 5 yr old or a 70 yr old, the statement shows the lack of education on the topic of rape.

Instead of advising the victims, on how to see the positive side of a traumatic experience, politicians should probably be concerned more about stopping such heinous acts from happening.

Not only is this statement offensive to woman, it is offensive to anyone who respects woman.
