Ever since the case of ex core member of AIB being involved in sexual harassment cropped up, it has opened a can of worms from the ‘woke feminist’ brigade. Triggering a spate of #Metoo cases, where victims exposed the malice behind some of the most celebrated names, be it from the media, or cinema, or even the literature genre.
However, if there is one thing this case has done well in revealing, it is the dark, ugly side of the otherwise ‘enlightened and progressive liberal brigade’ of the country. We need no introduction to their code of silence they abide to in such cases.
However, instead of accepting that in cases where their own are accused or later found guilty of crimes they’d otherwise howl about if the perpetrator is not from their league. Leaving aside the legendary cases who make the scapegoat out of the right wingers, their textbook style treatment of such cases begins with invoking the society as a culprit, as tweeted by such wise souls:-
Quite frankly @kunalkamra88 we r all part of the problem in some way or the other.. we r all complicit in some way or the other. It’s great that we all introspect and work towards an atmosphere where there is zero tolerance for sexual harassment at the workplace & any other place https://t.co/FnwNbjFjcm

@kunalkamra88 is an ally. His statement on the @AGirlOfHerWords incident is the statement of an ally. He was the only comedian (then struggling) who confronted @Wootsaw & refused to share the stage with him – this b4 Kunal became known. Why is he being named & shamed ??? @weeny pic.twitter.com/ZaRapaxm8N

We as a scene, specifically the men here, need to reexamine everything right now. I myself am guilty of being part of a culture where we haven't listened to the women. And this is the wake up call we need.
We are listening.
And we believe you.

Men & women will flirt. It’s our mating nature. Some may become creepy & you got to ask them to STOP when it makes you uncomfortable.
If they don’t back off when told & continue to force themselves, then THAT can be termed as harrassment.
Correct me if I’m wrong

There’s a billion men who send women sick pics and lewd messages on social media every single day. Including women as old as my mother. Utsav and Shamir Reuben are 2 out of an entire RACE. @MumbaiPolice @DelhiPolice is there some place we can reach out put an end to this?

Such liberals will leave no stone unturned in order to defend their colleagues accused in the state, as visible in the classic case of Shashi Tharoor, or even our very own Gurmehar Kaur shamelessly defending Shamir Reuben, accused on the same grounds as the AIB member Utsav Chakraborty. Also, as reflected in the following tweet, instead of pressing for strict action against the culprits, the so called liberals want a debate? Is this the best you can come up with?
Mumbai Press Club issues a statement expressing solidarity with women journalists who have pointed to sexual harrassment in the profession. To organise a debate on the issue.

To be honest, how will passing the buck on the society eliminate the blot of nurturing such sick minds? Surprisingly, these very liberals would go hammer and tongs after the perpetrator if the accused comes from either a nationalist dominating state or holds allegiance to anything other than the left wing diktats.
People like Kunal Kamra or Swara Bhasker should be the last people on earth to use the society card for shirking responsibility. Even though the statement reeked of hypocrisy, and was too late for any redemption, at least Anurag Kashyap had enough shame to accept the fault in the case of Vikas Bahl being accused of sexual assault.. Can we expect that from all?
Now being dead silent or passing the buck will only reduce the credibility they once had. Interestingly, Sonam Kapoor, who wouldn’t refrain from shaming an entire religion just for the sake of promoting her movie, would post this when faced with tough questions. If this is not hypocrisy, what is it?
I’m going off twitter for a while. It’s just too negative. Peace and love to all !

The spate of sexual harassment/assault cases also expose the brutal reality of these liberals, who want no accountability for themselves, and would do anything to shield their brethren from certain prosecution, even if they’re actually at fault. But for how long?
