Restrict my freedom Adjunct to my survival?
Palette of gender stereotypes
Eschew my empowerment?
Ruefully doing duty
Abhorrent of my rights?
Palette of Hors d’oeuvre Enlightenment on equality Redundant vows
Paradox of social stigma
Emanate hushed reality? Revoked rights
Atoned moralities Privileges defiled Embalm my tainted honor RAPE-Sexual Assault/abuse/coercion without another person consent, traumatizing person morally, emotionally & physically forever. I won’t use word Victim as it’s negative connotative for such a heinous crime & assault on humanity.Why to categorize sensitive issues like Rape on the basis of Gender stereotypes & to widen the gap of gender inequality even more? Why not just simply put crime & violence as one human violating “Right To Live” for another human being? Juvenile Rapist are categorized as Minors
Existing law “The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000” is missing biting teeth & sharpest claws. The Act has been criticized & put under public scanner after heinous violation of human rights with brave girl, Damini. The main detrimental factor to decide on the case should now be focused on the “magnitude” of the crime. So many PIL(Public Interest Litigation) have been mooted to support this much-needed change. If person is “mute spectator” for crime committed, isn’t it amount to perpetrating crime in some ways? Like wise, Rehabilitation of such delinquents & inhuman creatures isn’t going to amend the damage done & increasing rate of crimes involving juvenile. Psychologists, experts & social workers support rehabilitation for these “Accused Minors” on basis of juvenile history, psychological remnants as factors needed for them to rehabilitate. Raise kids not girls & boys, as family is the first social institution for any kid. So if this first step is taken well, rest is assured. I feel I am living in Neolithic era —- so why not raise better kids without following gender biases & stereotypes?It would take generations to have this mindset if we just do our duty rightfully. Stop gender discrimination & shielding I feel we need laws for sex offenders, abusers, and assaulter very sincerely. Like marking them as sex offender releasing it with their registration & community notification <data> everywhere to be assessed on the lines of ” USA Megan Law”. Penalty for juvenile crime is very less, it’s the biggest impediments.Protecting minors from such kind of heinous crime implicates that if you get the “Juvenile certification”, you are released in few years.Harshest laws like Capital punishment are need for an hour. This will arise a kind of fear implications for their actions.While writing this post, many times as a person, I have gone through overwhelming desire to lash out my latent anguish, to rant endlessly, thinking about the Damini fate, how she must have coped all that, it was brutal, it was inhuman & its pathetic reality.We have been listening about Rape of minor’s girls; abuse of kids, boys & girls alike as young as few days/months old. Where our sanity of civilization headed?I watched one documentary some time ago, I was filled with deep seething burning anguish, as I was struck, not able to do anything to change this glaring reality in any ways around me.In the documentary its shown that in Zimbabwe, men suffering from HIV/AIDS rape young girls<read VIRGIN RAPES> to get purified/ cleansed as told by their healers. So many minors cases were reported, how they are surviving with this ordeal & worst infliction on their right to live? Cultural shock isn’t it? Everything revolve under a system, we have social structure, political structure, legal structure all pillars have to stand well & uphold the basic tenets as listed in our Indian constitution, Preamble.
So Redefine RAPE as~Respect All People Existence
Be HUMAN first
Not a HE-MAN?
