1. PSEUDO-FEMINISM AND MISOGYNY TAKES OVER HUMANITY AND MORALITY
Is it always the girl’s fault or are the boys always to be blamed for anything and everything. For all the feminists or I’d rather say pseudo feminists out there, or the misogyny which has been existing since ages, why don’t they just take a moment, put aside their pride and think about humanity as a whole. Feminism, chauvinism, misogyny, and sexism seems to have eclipsed the good aspects of life and society like love, respect, equality, kindness or to be precise “HUMANITY”.
2. SOCIAL MEDIA- How do we know what we see is true or just an excuse for publicity?
In recent times we have seen social media platforms playing a huge role in today’s society. Envisioning an existence without social media is probably unimaginable, if certainly feasible, in the present day and age. It’s effectively something that individuals, especially the youth, invest the majority of their energy in. Furthermore, the content posted on these social media platforms isn’t simply something we expend our time on, but it has a huge impact on us, and it moulds the manner in which we think and consequently on the manner in which we act.
People who couldn’t speak up for themselves because of the fear of society are now raising their voices against all the injustice which exists, and that too, because of social media platforms. The youth, especially girls have become the voice of the nation. While there is exploitation everywhere, people rarely talk about how a particular gender can misuse their free will to speak, or can take unfair advantage of their privileges.
3. INSTAGRAM- Spreading love or promoting rape culture?
A recent case of “Boy’s locker room”, has left us in disgust and shock where a bunch of boys very proudly objectified random underage girls and how they could easily rape them as if it gives them a free will to do so or they were born to do this because they are men. It was a shameful act that got exposed by a South Delhi girl in social media with all the screenshots of their chats. After this incident, the boys didn’t stop and made a page called the boy’s locker room, where they talked about how wrong it was to reveal their identities and nothing can stop them from defaming these girls. A case was registered under section 465 (forgery), 471 (using forged document), 469 (Forgery for purpose of harming reputation), 509 (intending to insult the modesty of any woman) of the IPC and 67 and 67A of the Information Technology (IT) Act at the cyber cell of Delhi police. Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal said. “We are issuing a notice to Instagram and Delhi Police. All the boys in this group should be arrested,” she added.
HOW DO WE DISTINGUISH BETWEEN THE VICTIM AND THE CULPRIT?
The girl who revealed all this was nothing but another hypocrite who herself was seen involved in an Instagram group where she used vulgar language to defame boys and girls of her own age. Although what she did wasn’t as bad and heinous as the members of the “boy’s locker room”, But to shame, very few talked about this and soon this matter vanished. Why? Because she is a girl and only girls can play the role of a victim. This young generation has gone so blind in search of fame and publicity that their thirst for popularity has led them to forget their originality and humanity and filled them with hatred and jealousy.
4. HAS SOCIAL MEDIA BECOME THE NEW COURT OF JUSTICE?
Just a day after, when the “boy’s locker room” case came into light, Manav Singh, a student of class 12 from Gurugram committed suicide after being accused of molestation and rape. A girl posted a story on Instagram claiming that she was molested and raped by Manav Singh. Following this, his brother, Rishi Singh claimed that “my brother is not a rapist” and said he is not related to the “boy’s locker room” case, as the girl who posted the story clearly mentioned that the incident took place nearly two years ago. This post of Rishi Singh ( brother of Manav Singh) spread on social media like a wildfire. But to be honest, nobody knows the real story or even one side of the story. Is it the case of the #metoo movement being misused again or is it the same story where a boy physically misuses a girl and the case gets closed because the girl was too afraid to speak at that time. What hits to me the most is that social media is not a judicial body, and the users of social media platforms are not the members of the jury, they have no right to punish somebody on social media. This case should have gone to the police and taken care of by the Judicial system rather than a bunch of teens. As Rishi Singh claims, his brother got threat calls from the girl and her friends, which led him to think that his side of the story would never be believed which consequently affected his mental health and thus led him to take his own life. If this is true, then it shows how a mere post on social media or defaming someone publicly can change somebody’s life, or even take somebody’s life. The death of a young boy left scars on our minds, and the worst part, left his parents in shock and sorrow for their whole life. This shows that youngsters or people, in general, don’t think about the consequences that follow up after their deeds. Maybe that young boy still would have been here with us or maybe he would have been punished the right way( if the allegations are true), but sadly nobody will know the actual story or the boy’s part of the story.
5. IN THIS RUN OF FAME AND WEALTH, HUMANS FORGOT ABOUT HUMANITY.
Social media was meant to connect people, not a platform where people can avenge themselves. It is great to stand up for yourself and for other people, but a social media platform cannot serve justice to any of us, and mere teenagers have no right to punish anyone over a social networking site.
In a world full of rumors, we lost honesty and truthfulness. In a world full of fake people, we forgot the real ones. In a world full of Pseudo-feminists and misogynists, humanity morality and love got lost in oblivion.
6. A WORLD GONE BLIND
The world has gone blind, because external appearance seems to have outshined the inner light, and dishonesty seems to have overshadowed the truth.
The only thing we can do to save ourselves and others from this monstrosity, is to not believe everything on social networking sites, and for once, choose humanity and kindness over everything. Instead of blaming a particular gender or section, why don’t we just come down to what is good and what is bad, not all boys are culprits and not all girls are victims. Only If we learn to distinguish between the good and the bad, we wouldn’t have to blame any particular gender or a particular section of the society. WE ARE HUMANS FIRST, THEN A MAN OR A WOMAN!
