Well, I agree with the point you're trying to make, but I wouldn't go as far as to call this 's**t-shaming' 
IMHO the term applies specifically to a North American context, while in India both men and women who have active libidos are shamed (ex. Rajev in the BB house). 

Yes, the word characterless is being thrown around her rather carelessly. I think people need to differentiate between their disapproval/dislike of the way a contestant is portrayed rather than making such improper remarks about their personalities. 

Regarding Sana, I don't think she's shown a lot of integrity in the house. I wouldn't call her "characterless" or even "fake" (everyone is fake in the house, imho). But nothing she does or says endears me to her either! 


And I am a North American viewer so to me this very well fits the category of s**t shaming. Chuck it up to the concept of cultural relativism. 

You don't have to like her or find her endearing, you have a right to your likes and dislikes. But there is no need to call a girl characterless or a wh**e. It is disturbing and extremely uncalled for. 

Here's the thing, you cannot extrapolate this concept of "s**t shaming," which has developed in a very specific context, to Indian society. I'm sorry. It makes no sense in the Indian context. Both males and females who are more sexually active than the norm are shamed in India. s**t-shaming can only be applied to societies where males and females don't have equal sexual freedom.

it's wrong to say something about a girl.

If you really want to blame someone do it for Rajeev also.Why he is spared.

I've been reading a lot of posts on here that blatantly calls Sana Khan "characterless", "wh**e" (yes I saw this), ghaati (isn't this derogatory, correct me if I am wrong) and what not.

Now I want to know why.


On the one hand, we makes elaborate claims about stopping violence against women while on the other hand we call a woman characterless for a kiss on the cheek that she did not even initiate, not that there is anything characterless or wh**e-like about initiating it either. If this isn't hypocrisy, what is? How can you ask justice for women when you don't even practice what you preach?

What makes Sana a "characterless wh**e"? Does not every 20 something year old girl flirt, preen and smile to garner male attention? Girls in high schools, colleges, workplaces, everyone does it. It does not make you characterless nor does it mean you're a free-for-all.

What has she done on the show that warrants such vituperation? Has she walked around naked asking the men to sleep with her for money? No? Then sorry, she's not a wh**e because a wh**e is one that exchanges sex for money.


So, here's my lowdown on this shit. Like it or lump it.


To YOU and all those calling Sana characterless and a wh**e, I bet you are a woman too because mostly only women like to throw mud at other women for no freaking reason. And if you are a man partaking in this s**t shaming then a bigger shame on you. Sana has done NOTHING in the show that taints her character or warrants name calling of such kind. It is easy to protest and scream for women's rights when a heinous crime happens but very hard to practice what you preach. If you want people to respect women then start with it yourself. Charity begins at home.

<font size="2">There is no need to call a girl characterless just because she is 25, young and likes to flirt. Its called being young and enjoying your youth. Women flirt too, build a bridge and get over it or go back to your cave. We're not in the medieval times anymore. We don't have to act coy and wait for our knights in shining armors. We can pretend to play damsels in distress or avoluptuousvixen all we want and no that does not make us characterless or a wh**e! Men do it all the time! Why is no one throwing dirt at their character? Why? Because men doing it makes them studs but women automatically get relegated to the "characterless" slot? How does that make any iota of sense? </font>


<font size="2">Quit the baseless s**t shaming!</font>

I vehemently disagree. Men are not shamed in Indian culture for flirting, courting, wooing women. If a woman were to do that, they'd throw a fit. Why else is it that no one bats an eyelid when an Indian man marries a woman of a different race but the same is frowned upon when the Indian girl does it. Care to explain that disparity? 



Also, why are raped women in Indian societies degraded? Why are they told oh you shouldn't have worn such tight jeans, short skirts, you should have not been out at night etc. 

Politicians tell girls to stay at home just so "they don't get raped". Why is the onus on the girl? Why are men not held accountable? This is s**t shaming.

Nothing at all.

She's a young girl, who loves attention, is a bit insecure but that is more to do with the fact that she's young and has yet to grow into her own person to possess calm self-assurance.

I find her charming, engaging, funny and a little immature, but delightful.
