Name calling and coloring all men in the same color will not solve anything but make things more complicated. We must remember that the daughters who are raped are some father's daughter and some man's love. Repeatedly we have seen helpless fathers and beaten up men. Father's running on the streets to the Police or the Hospital, helpless. The male lover or friend, blood soaked and beaten, in critical condition on a hospital bed.

While I agree that mother's must teach their son's and become more strict, enforce limitations on TV and not compromise on the basis of false sexist beliefs; it is also important to educate girls on moderation in their attitude, lifestyle and dress manners.


It cannot only be the responsibility of the family, but also the media and the community as a whole.

Why is it so funny that this decay of our society might be a foreign conspiracy?

@bold Once upon a time, long ago, our ancestors use to roam in the nude most likely, or with minimal clothing. Some religions commanded the men to walk with heads bowed, so as to not look at women and have barbaric urges. The issue is lack of morality and respect people have for other humans. 

Rape isn't only confined to adult, grown women. You hear about young children, both boys and girls, getting raped. And men too get raped, even if its far less reported. So I'd like to know what was wrong with attitude, lifestyle or dressing manners? Why single out women and their need to "moderate"

Name calling and generalizing is a pretty small issue next to the kind of reasoning you've stated, which only adds to the regressive outlook people have when it comes to rape victims and will do nothing to help the problem.

In addition to reasons listed in posts by other members ------its also an urge to show power, dominance, instill fear , take revenge, control the victims..--/  

What if female species were physically stronger than males?  @

And victims are not always young females --even kids, old women are raped. Recently there was disgusting news about a group of a-holes raping a dead-body of a girl - next day after she was buried and funeral rights were performed. So you see !  this has nothing to do with clothes that women wear. In addition to giving elevated rights to women, an adequate protection should be provided. Clearly law n order is a joke in cities where you see repeated crimes about rape or sexual molestation. Rapists are recording videos of such crimes (Guwahati incident? ) so they really don't care about the consequences. ----so need more stringent laws and punishment

You can't just enforce morals/ethics about  modesty or dignity on women and have men all the liberty -------- It should be equally enforced on both genders. ! If you are going to ask women not to step out of the house after 9 pm ---then why not rather mandate all men to stay inside home after 9 pm?  And yes, please check statistics about rapes for every country .. Its a problem that no country has totally eradicated.

And off note,bollywood needs to stop those scenes of gang rapes in movies. These sick movie makers have habit of showing bad guys as powerful ones, who usually rape either heroine or hero's sister in movies -/ and then these rapists walk off the scene with a smile( signalling victory) as if nothing has happened. ---that's the power, dominance i was talking abt ! There are nutcases in our society who are influenced/inspired by negative characters in movies - -

Not at all...Its basic lack of morals, values and respect for women...Rapes are very very common in many developed countries/citities where literacy rate is high...So education isnt the problem IMO...

Causes - 
1. Lenient law. Men know nothing major is going to happen and they can get away with this. 

2. Male superiority. And I think it's because men are physically stronger that they are considered superior. Pathetic mentality! 

3. Women who do not fight for themselves and their self respect, individuality. They, in a way, specially mothers and sisters at homes implant these superiority ideas into male brains. This inferiority complex does cost us a lot. 

It's not lack of education. It is lack of fear in men, and inferior mentality in women. 

Rapists should be castrated and women should accept that they can survive as an individual in this world. They are equal to men, no inferior. Only thing in favor of males is physical superiority. So I think Martial Arts should now be a compulsory subject for girls in school. It's the need of the hour.

hey me new here read this intense discussion
every one out here has their own perspective and u guys are correct in ur place
but I just want to put forward my views
first of all fortunately or unfortunately our country runs on a power driver system
its similar like the old jungle story where the lion and his friend enjoy and everyone else out there is helpless.in INDIA the situation is similar to the above one
and the RAPE incident is one of the outcome of this
the people who do this heinous crime think that they would easily get away .I really don't know what exactly goes on in their sick mind !!!
its not that rapes are  happening just  in 21 century ,these crimes were done in past too
but sadly they were not given much importance thinking about the "girl's dignity"(which I hated and continue to hate)
in our country or in our great mythology women are given the status of goddesses !!!!!!(what an irony isn't it )and the sad scenario we get to see IS women are victims of such things.
women empowerment ,NARI SHAKTI are few words that are used in our day to day conversation
NO  offence but I HATE THESE WORDS!!!!! THESE WORDS TEND TO PROVE THAT WOMEN ARE WEAK AND THEY NEED SUPPORT OF SUCH WORDS TO CLIMB UP!!
UNFORTUNATELY BY BLASTING PARLIAMENT OR POLITIACIANS WILL NOT HELP US .
WE AS A CITIZEN I THINK SHOULD COME TOGETHER TO SOUGHT THIS
(I KNOW I M SOUNDING TOO PHILOSOPHICAL SORRY FOR THE SAME)
 we need to take ownership of our actions.
we just have to understand that the victims and the rapist belong to our society .
true that these rapists should not be spared but we at first place should ensure that such case never happen.
HOW MANY OF U REMEBER THAT JUST AFTER TWO DAYS OF DEHLI GANG RAPE ONE MORE GIRL WAS RAPED CLOSE TO THAT VICINITY
U SEE THESE PEOPLE DONT FEAR LAW WHAT CAN BE MORE SHAMEFUL THAN THAT !!
THE FIRST Thing  WHICH POPS IN OUR MIND after hearing such cases  ARE QUESTIONs????  EG
 
 1 WHAT THE HELL THE GOVERNMENT IS DOING
2 ARE OUR DAUGHTER,WIFE,SISTER ,MOTHER SAFE OUT HERE
3 WHY CANT THEY JUST HANG THESE RAPISTS
but seriously think did u get any answer !!!
 
guys we since kinder-garden are taught INDIA IS OUR COUNTRY BUT SADLY NO ONE BOTHERS TO LOOK IT AS ONE (EVEN ME )
WE ARE NOT JUST STUPID MOB WHO WILL GET INSTIGATED ONLY WHEN CRIMES HAPPEN
ITS HIGH TIME THAT WE UNDERSTAND THE GRAVITY OF THE SITUATION RATHER THAN PLAYING THE ENTITLED "BLAME GAME "
 
- JAI HIND
 
 
 
 
 p.s sorry for wavering away from the topic but I think both lack education and lack of awareness are the two side of the same coin so they both can be looked as the proximate cause

I agree with ur point I think its high time people change their bias mentality .
also I feel sad that the anger evaporates after some time
aren't we supporting the famous proverb "out of site ,out of mind "

PUKE. This deserves a meme. Hold on, person. A meme that describes this attitude is coming right up.
