Underage boys gleefully planning the best way to rape & gangrape minor women. Parents & lecturers should deal with this with these Kids.. Not sufficient to ‘hang rapists’ .. we should assault the mentality that creates rapists!

Actress Maanvi Gagroo penned a notice on the controversy and wrote, “The question is ‘How did we get here?’ Is it the systemic normalisation of violence against women in our pop culture? Casual rape jokes? Dated yet a deeply internalised idea of ‘giving the daughter away in marriage’ or the widely accepted assertion of patriarchal ownership our rituals are ridden with?! Yes, misogyny begins at home. It seeps through our words. It reinstates through our actions & it is enabled through our gender-based morality.”

She additional goes on to say that the whole lot we do/say has an impression. “Every time you decide to save for your daughter’s wedding but your son’s education, every time you ask a rape victim what she was wearing and why she was out… every action of yours is potentially rewarding or punishing a young mind for their words and actions.”, she was quoted saying by The Quint.

Instead of training boys, they banned cell telephones. “Our principal was a woman, there is so much she could have done but I suppose she did not know better for she was a product of the same toxic, patriarchal rot, despite all the education. This was the message boys got from that. Laughable.”
