Why is gender politics so skewed in all of Ekta's shows!

Why do men serve no other purpose other than creating discord between two other women?

Why is a man's emotions or what he wants for himself of no consequence whatsoever?

I get Ekta's need to create strong female characters but does it have to be done at the expense of men? Isn't this kind of a reversal of what happens in mainstream cinema? Why can't there be any balance?

With regard to PR, why is Arjun being treated like some toy that the two sisters can keep trading?

Why does nobody ever care about what Arjun wants in all this? Why don't they even ask him?

Last of all, I would surely hate to be a man in Ekta's shows! A fate worse than death!

For some screwed up reasons, maybe this is her way of showing dominance over men ! Or even her brand of so-called new age feminism that she believes in.. Very wierd and strange..

I know Ekta is trying to show women as strong and leaders onscreen to inspire real life women but making a man a toy doesn't help.  Making a man a sucker of love stories or die hard evil won't glorify womanhood. She can make a man equal in importance to a woman but she chooses not to for some odd reasonConfused A man and a woman and walk side by side, he can be the strength and courage to a woman...Ekta can't see beyond men being toys so Cry
