Peace defeats all

Yet another rape hits Delhi, and this is one that we know about. Can you just imagine how many there are that we don’t even know about? I genuinely can not understand what the Indian government is doing. Are they merely just sleeping through it all? Are women so insignificant and unworthy in India? I am so angry.

This time, its a five year old girl. Five! I don’t know what was going through the mind of that misogynist rapist. Is he so twisted that he cannot hear the cries of a baby girl? Is this really what humanity has fallen to? It sickens me, it sickens me that I live in a world in which misogyny is still existent  It sickens me that the Indian Government still hasn’t done anything about it. And it sickens me that there are such twisted, heartless and violent people living among us.

Not only did the brute rape her, he tortured her. She was found with all sorts of stuff inside of her body. I cannot understand what makes men do this. What is about women that they hate so much? Do women not give them birth? Do they not get undying and unconditional love from women? It is beyond me that to this day, in 2013, how stuff like this happens right under our noses, and the government takes no initiative whatsoever. Now I know the Indian government had the whole Rape Bill discussion, but no good has come of it, has there? The fact that a 5 year old was raped and tortured is pure proof of this.

Also, what exactly is the matter with the police? How could they possibly not register the case in time? This may very well be the reason that women are afraid to stand up against rape, and the sole reason that men gain the courage to do more and more of it. If the people given the responsibility of protecting its country do not protect it, then who will? I mean, why take up the duty if you’re not going to live up to its expectations. And, later claiming that at least the girl is alive, excuse me, but you have no right to utter those words. It is due to the possible misconduct and delay of the police that this five year old endured what no one in the world deserved to. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying the entire police force is apathetic, but it is police like this that makes us women doubt the entire justice system.

Come on, you guys, it is the 21st century. Let’s give peace and love a chance.

If I were omnipotent

Being omnipotent would be great. Just think of all the things you would be able to do. Read minds, gain more power, and whatnot.

If I were omnipotent I would put an end to misogyny. All this violence and hostility against women would finally see an end. I would be there for every woman in the world that has been subject to misogyny, protecting her and helping her heal.

If I were omnipotent, I would get a man to live the life of a woman for a single day, just so he can see how much stronger women are than him. With all the gawks and the whistles. With the probability of getting sexually abused so high, yet women still muster the courage to step outside of their comfort and safety. I would make a man experience this, so he can think twice before laying his perverted eyes and turpid thoughts on a woman. I would make a man be a victim to misogyny, so he can understand the pain and the consequences behind it. I would make the man go through the process of child birth, so he can value his wife and mother a lot more. I would for once, make the man be the woman that has been abandoned with little children, just so he can see the struggles she faces, but does not show.

If I were omnipotent for a day, I would want a man to live the life of a woman, just so, for once, he can learn to respect a woman, to love a woman, and to be proud of a woman.
