To me gender equality means - equal right for men and women. equal right to social security, job, pay, voting, marriage, right to divorce, right to work - whatever. Gender equity in these areas must be achieved and anyone questioning this must be condemned.
However, I have seen (and see everyday) enough number of feminists who drag the definition of gender equity too far to prove men = women. They are not - they are created biologically different and they will always be different. There is no superior or inferior here - just that men and women will always remain biologically different and hence emotional behaviour would be different and hence the expectation of the society will be different. After all it is hormones that control our reactions and they are not same in men and women.
Going by that if society thinks a woman is generally more shy than a man and spells out that - protesting against that is a feminist outburst to me. However, if a woman is disadvantaged just because she is not feeling shy, that must be condemned again because her right of equality should never be compromised.
In this particular instance, I do not think Sidhu ever meant to look down to Sapna. He just mentioned Sapna's behaviour does not match with the typical behaviour of majority of women and there is nothing wrong in expressing that. If he would have said Sapna is a disgrace to human kind because she is not shy, she should be thrown out of house because she is not shy or her face should be blackened because she is not shy etc. etc. - definitely condemn him all out!!
I completely agree with you buddy.
both male & female members r stretching this issue here. This is important topic,i guess most members of this forum already put their views in this thread,still for the sake of it ppl r stretching it.
Women can't say that just bcoz of men,Society have such mindset that they expect women to behave in a certain way. Women r responsible too for this.
Thinking of Society can't be changed easily,it will take tremendous effort by both men & women.
Discussing this on forum here will not do any good to condition of women in real world. Not all,but most ppl will discuss topic here & after few days they will forget this issue & move on to other issue.
If anyone wanna do good in virtual world ,then do blogging abt this issue & try to reach as many ppl as u can. it will atleast do some good in spreading awareness.
If we really want to make change ,Everyone need to put an effort on real world & try to change the mindset of ppl around us. And,it's not easy thing. Ppl r so busy in their own life,that they hardly look around what's happening in society ,ppl will watch news or read news papers & criticise ppl who treat women wrong,but they themselves will not take any step to make a change.
