I dont like that word, but could not get a better word either. I would not call it opposite of feminism either. 

So this post was partially inspired by this post from a good friend of mine. 

I see a lot of outrage when it comes to crime towards women. As i browse the newspapers and social media, stories about all sort of crimes towards women comes up. Appeal to treat women equal to men, in all aspects of life are echoed everywhere. 

Alright. So, are you saying women are treated not like man??
Very true.

So are you saying women should be treated like men?
I seriously wish it where. Seriously. 

Let me come to some real life situations. 

Situation 1:
A man whistles as a girl pass by.
Current Scenario: The girl slaps back. Every one comes to the girls rescue. Case can be charged against the man. 

A girl whistles as a man pass by.
Current Scenario: If the guy slaps back, he ends up with police.

What feminists are asking for :
If a guy slaps back, everyone should come to his rescue. Case should be charged against the girl. Since there is no law which will come to rescue of the guy in this scenario, new rules should be made to protect the modesty of the male species. 

Situation 2 (which happened to me):
A girl sits next to me in an overnight bus to my home town. Later, as she fixes her dress as she went to sleep, her elbow brushed below my abdomen, very close to my penis, twice, accidentally. 

Current Scenario: The man feels either horny, or uncomfortable. He tries to touch her back, or feel uncomfortable, but keep quiet. 

What feminists are asking for:
If it happens to a girl, she should feel  horny and try to touch the guy back. Or feel uncomfortable and keep quiet. 
She should not Scream shout, scratch back, kick the balls. Even if it was on purpose. 
[And i am not telling you if i were horny or if i felt uncomfortable :P Well, i was scared, that was the fact.]

I can go on with a hundred situations where guys are not treated equally by women, and by the society. While there are girls who suffer, there are lots of girls who enjoy a lot of privileges as a women. If women needs receive the same treatment as guys, they should behave like guys !! For goodness sake, all you feminists out there, stop comparing yourself with guys. You cannot, you are different in physique and mind. You are constructed differently. You cannot be equal, but you are no lesser either. So are men. 

And when it comes to crime, have you noticed that there are a lot of guys who gets beaten up, get killed on the roads, get robbed?

Crime and criminal minds are not motivated by the gender. Crimes are committed by people who have disrespect to another person, because that was the way they where brought up. He finds it okay to beat up a guy. He finds it okay to rob, he finds it okay to rape. It has nothing to do with gender. He who rapes a girl have done bad to guys too. So, guys dont deserve fair treatment??

We cannot selectively disable rapes. If rapes has to go away, people should have respect to others as a human being. In that way, crime, in general will go down. There is no place in the world, which have a low rape rate, but a high robbery rate. So let us not concentrate on rape, concentrate on mutual respect and better values. 

So if some girl want to walk down the road freely at night alone, in whatever dress she would want to wear, i would join the cause. Because, that will also mean, that I, as a guy will be able to walk alone at night, in a metro city with a large floating population flaunting an expensive mobile phone, gold chain, wrist watch, and still not get assaulted. 

But, if you, as a girl are just worried about you[being a girl] not getting raped or judged if you smoke or drink, I am not with you, as you, as a feminist, do not display respect to the male species. Because, me, have always given consideration to human beings irrespective of their gender. I will be with you, if you want to have same privileges as men, but only if you will, in real life, shed all privileges you enjoy as a woman. 

So, please keep quiet when someone stares at your boobs, please dont get offended by that act, as guys would do nothing if a girls will do that to them.  

You can call me a male chauvinist if you judge me like that with whatever i have written here. If  my views fit well into that word, i am one, i guess. And if you, as a girl, cant accept it, i think the feeling is mutual.

Would you be comfortable with people staring at ur crotch? O.o
I'd like to differ with you on that.
I do agree that the genders have their differences, but nobody is allowed to act against anyone simply because they are male or female. Period.
