The Social ‘No’work

So, what was Internet made for? Breaking the ice, alright. What happens after you break the ice?

Social media works like the dumping policy?

 Got an idea, put it up online and watch it go VIRAL.

A cause- social, political or cultural- has its purposes. How people present this is where it could go wrong.

So, maybe ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was a wise man’s call.

But, how about we talk about the #Jadapose. Did you read about that? Please do. That is what the Social Network can do.

Was that breaking the right ice?

Did THAT have to go viral? Does a rape victim deserve to be undignified publicly like that?

The Social Network is a tool. How you use it, is your choice.

It comes with more debase than charity.

Breaking the Ice

Feminism Low

I have been on a low tide of late.

Little heart break. Little depression. Little Guilt. Little regret.

I take pride in being Feminist.

But…

Of late, the feminist part of me doesn’t seem so bright.

The constant experience of being a girl in India could be a big reason. My poor choices could be another. The emerging rape culture is yet another. Being judged by other women makes me saddest (Read saddest). The downfall of modern feminism worries me. Our views have turned sexist in their undertones. But, I don’t know if that is the flaw in feminism at all. There’s so much anger, Indian Feminists tend to get sexist, also, why not? Do you see what’s happening out there? Not all men are rapists, sure. But, there is clearly an issue with some men.

I have begun to worry more and do very less. Today scares me. I am just low.

 

In all of this. I came across this video. It’s beautiful. Cannot thank them enough for making this, feels appropriate. No matter which country you are from, Watch this.

Indians, HERE.
