Why Women Are The Stronger Sex

“(Referring to rape) It already is bigger than everything else. It lives in front of me, behind me, next to me, inside me every single day. My schedule is dictated by it, my habits by it, my music by it.” –Daisy Whitney (The Mockingbirds)”

We women are our own worst enemies…we demand equality with men; we want to be considered as equal to them. Why? What for? Women are never going to be as bad as men, we have always been better, smarter and also stronger (emotionally and physically) than men.

“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition. – Timothy Leary”

Men have twisted minds and egos and to top it all even their chromosomes are confused whether to make them men or not, (x y), indecision is their mantra. They don’t know what they want, sometimes they want to be considered as the head of the family but during crunch time they blame others for their mistakes and look for scapegoats to lynch. Not all men are the same and it holds true for women too but generally it sticks. Men are cowards and believe in the herd mentality, as long as they are in a group, they act strong but catch a man alone in a corner and he backs down like a frightened mouse.

I am so cheesed off at this lowly race today and hence this scathing article. I woke up happy, on a bright and sunny Sunday morning and looked forward to a relaxed and chilled afternoon with a couple of beers under my belt and Sunday brunch with the family, but what do I see? The news headline screaming gang rape of 25-yr-old, in a moving car. The operative word here being “Gang rape”. Why is that every time you read about a rape, it’s a gang rape and if ever you read about a single man raping a girl, it’s a little , helpless child that he rapes. The 5 year old or 8 year old baby, who is in no way strong enough to fight back and defend herself from being brutally violated by the perverted beast in human disguise.

Men hunt in packs because they don’t have the guts to do it alone and they hunt women, the supposedly weaker sex, who cannot defend themselves from their attack. At least that’s what they claim that women are, weak. But the reality is totally different, women are strong and that’s why men lack the courage to assault them on their own. They always have two to three accomplices with them while perpetrating these kinds of attacks. Three to four men abduct a single woman and take turns raping her in the moving car or tempo or whichever vehicle they get their dirty hands on to commit this heinous crime. One brave and strong man holds a knife or gun to the weak woman’s head and watches while the other two brave men pin her down and the fourth brave man violates her. They take turns raping the woman; they should get a bravery award for their heroic act, on 26th January, bravo Men.

All those involved in this alleged gang rape are affluent people and not illiterate, ignorant people from the lower strata of society. About ten days back a high school girl was gang raped by three students of her institution in a car. In most of the cases the men outnumber the woman and overpower her by collective force. Then how can we say that men and women are equal and why should we say it? It takes three to four men to subdue a woman, who is the stronger sex here then?

It’s sad that in this day and age, women in our country are not safe venturing out of their homes at any time of the day or night. We live in the Capital of our country and women are not safe here, what about the other states and cities then? Young girls are picked up from the roads, walking to college or while going to the market, they are raped by groups of men and left off some place, with a warning.

There should be stricter laws for these kinds of crimes and the punishment should be swift, just and at par with the intensity and gravity of the crime. What these heartless men take away from these women is far more, than can ever be compensated by, any punishment, meted out to the offenders. They not only assault her body, they violate her mind, and something dies inside her at that moment. A part of her goes numb, she can never feel happiness ever again, and her mind never stops screaming out in helpless rage and shame. She dies a bit everyday for the rest of her life. Her soul continues bleeding ….. These men should be tried for multiple murders and hanged until death. They would still be getting off Scot- free.

  1. I cannot agree more with you Sulekha – except I would not hang them till death – I would strip these weaklings, tie them to a post and leave them there for the rest of his life (come rain or shine). They should rot there till they die a natural painful death and then just thrown into a dump somewhere…. I cannot tell you how enraged I am after reading your piece. You are so right about how string we are.

  2. Yes Mitr, you are right..we should make them suffer like they do these innocent girls…sick people with toxic mentalities…

  3. {{Hugs}} Sulekkha continue be an example of a strong woman and speak out against injustice. As women, these are our strongest defenses.

  4. very powerful and strong post i don't defend men who rape. i will supply the rope and a tall tree, in the market place for all to see. to put a stop to this we both men and women need to teach the children to respect the other right to live unharmed and to keep one hands to them self and not provide uninvited touch

  5. Hi Sulekha,
    Hmm this is a disease which is spreading very rapidly. And Its one of the worst ever barbaric. Act.
    Fast track. Courts needs to be made where only ladies judge should be giving verdict. In my court the punishment should not be less then. Death. Or life imprisonment so that one think thousands time. .this cruel barbaric act.
    Women are strong you rightly said. .And is a symbol of Shakti. And its scientifically proven women uses both brains.
    So the point is Girls need not to get afraid just keep some tools with herself always. Like peper sprays etc..
    the girl who goes through all this,only knows. .How tormatised she has been. Just imaginig.the state brings tears to our eyes. ..What about the pain she goes through..so something has to come to curb this menace.

  6. Bravo… You are so true… men like to prey on the weaker ones.. small girls (I was raped when I was a kid by my mother's boyfriend and molested by a couple others!!)
    They dare not face someone their own size, and they dare call us the weaker sex. Married women have to do everything in the house and even work nowadays… the men?? they just wait to be served

  7. Yes Roy,we do need to teach the children about respecting other people's space and to distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate touching. Thanks for the offer of the rope and the tall tree…tc

  8. Vivek,
    You are right, women should always carry some pepper spray or something equally stinging which will give them a chance to surprise their attackers and get away from danger. I didn't mean to imply that all men are bad but some bad ones spoil their reputation.
    Thanks for understanding the plight of women and voicing your concerns..

  9. Meira, so sorry to read about your ordeals when you were a child, my heart goes out to you…thanks for being so brave..take care

  10. Sulekha completely agree…sometimes I wonder what makes such demons out of men….we women are so much strong and so much better!! I'm sooo glad I'm a woman!!

  11. Hello Lucks – BTW LOVE that nickname!

    Finally I stopped by and properly signed up as a follower of your blog and decided to leave a long-overdue comment. BRAVA! I admire your honesty and your strength and your speaking out on such a poignant subject.

    Just to share a short anecdote, I never thought of myself as a feminist, until I saw the struggles that a favorite film of mine has been going through. If you are getting tired of hearing it, I will only mention it once, Miral by Julian Schnabel. It's the real life story of writer Rula Jebreal, a strong, beautiful, intelligent Palestinian woman who is not an extremist or apologetic for her talent. What a threatening combination to any man who is not as secure and otherworldly as Schnabel! So, male critics all over the place, instead of coming to terms with their own shortcomings, call the film all kinds of names and condemn Jebreal's book.

    Needless to say, I have become quite aware of the negative power of men's insecurities, through the journey of a story that must be told, to even out the male-dominated version of what the Middle East is. Thank you for your touching piece. I second Swati's thoughts… I'm so glad I'm a woman!

  12. Thanks Swati,We are bringing about some changes in our society and raising our voice against injustice. We are getting there, slowly n steadily..I am glad too

  13. Hello Nina, My Dad used to call me Lucks and this name is very special to me.Love it when my dear friends address me as Lucks, thanks.

    Thank you for following my blog and for your lovely compliments. Miral is second on my list of great movies to watch, first being,"Cairo Time".
