Well I kinda agree the lajja and all that comment was not needed. He could have chosen another word. I mean being someone of his stature when it comes to speeches he definitely could do better. But as far i could see Sidhu mr speaker is always prepared with his answers in his mind; he probably thought sapna would not bring up that question[after all that hullabaloo and crying after] and when she did he somehow lost his cool.
But I also strongly do believe that it somehow does not mean he had any undertone of sexism or misogyny.
Regarding to his comments I think we are in times when political correctness is doing exactly opposite of what is supposed to do.
Women are allowed to say and do certain things but men are not.
Colored people can say stuff to white people but they cant retort back and same goes for straight ppl who can be harassed by LGBT.
Instead of equality we are tilting the scales in opposite direction.
Mostly ppl would disagree with me on this. But I know exactly what i intend to say and I see it everyday on the streets. Affirmative action for one group may also mean apartheid against other.
Reservation is an example..There is many more...
For now I am going to disagree you on this, because I do not know what you mean by women are allowed to say and do certain things, but men aren't
Same with "straight people can be harassed by LGBT"
So I do not understand your statement "Instead of equality we are tilting the scales in opposite direction"
Equality hasn't been even reached so I do not see how the scale in already getting titled in the opposite direction unless you are willing to elaborate more on your POV.
Absolutely chandra you have all right to be. I love healthy discussions and spl. if they might be something id'd disagree on since I could be wrong you know.
I do not intend to say his choice of words was right in any way; i could clearly see it was his ego speaking that time. My response was more off topic in general though. That sometimes the measures that are put in place for equality end up doing the opposite in a long term.
Equality has not been reached yet, will take years to break that barrier.
Now what i mean is , as an example as my work place there is an openly gay man, which is fine. But he abuses that now because every time we have a valid complaint too; he would use it to be a victim and cry out homophobia.
I mean this could go on and im sure for every case like this there's hundred cases of discrimination against them but i hope you get the idea. If you dont , whoc ares what i think
