पुस्र्षत्व का बोध – सूची की नज़र से

अस्वस्थ्य मर्दानगी या विषाक्त पुरुषत्व का हिंसक होने के लिए ज़रूरी नहीं है कि जाहिर तौर पर मौखिक या शररिक रूप से घातक हो। इसके लक्षण रोज़मर्रा के वार्तालाप या अंतरंग बातचीत से भी सामने आते है।

I believe that such mini-series as “Unbelievable” will help people have a better understanding of what women go through when they experience a horrific incident like rape or sexual assault.

उभयलिंगी देवत्व : कोलकाता की दुर्गा पूजा में ट्रांस-सेक्शुअलिटी का उत्सव

The use of terms that convert the movement for women’s empowerment into extreme militancy in order to reject the movement altogether is indeed a sombre example of diverting attention from the real problems that exist in society and projecting women’s protests against sexual crimes or standing up for their rights as one of “mob lynchings” or wrongly adducing the news of repealing “Adultery” as a move that allows women to have sexual relations outside of marriage.

These interactions – this performance of control over oneself and others – reinforce the social norms and norms of power that drive gender inequality.
