On Lingerie Mannequin Ban

Ritu Tawade: The Great Savior Of Indian Men



All of us know how India has acquired the disgraceful distinction of a rape country. I am not very much concerned about the women who are raped, assaulted, or sexually harassed, as it is one of the duties of most Indian women to sacrifice everything and suffer silently to keep the men folk happy. Rather, I am aghast at the bad reputation of our great nation and our men in general. These days, people all over the world think that all Indian men are rapists.

So I was overjoyed when I learned that someone has come forward to the rescue of Indian men. Madam Ritu Tawade, a BJP corporator in Mumbai, tells us that the reason behind the rise in sex related crimes these days is the display of lingerie or undergarments on mannequins. She proposed a ban on lingerie mannequins and the 227 members of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) unanimously supported her.

Madam Tawade is also against lingerie advertisements on TV, in newspapers and on billboards or hoardings. Poor men! They are constantly bombarded and aroused by the sexualized mannequins, images, item numbers, and common women on the streets, and provoked to commit rape.

Instead of blaming our boys and the men for their lack of respect for women and sex crimes, we should provide them with clean surroundings so that they are not tempted to play with dirt.

Kudos to Madam Ritu Tawade and her supporters in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for taking this great initiative.

I want to propose a few more measures to clear the dirt from our society.

1. The police force should be sensitized about Indian men’s precarious situation. Innocent men are constantly aroused and tempted by the sexualized surroundings. Therefore, a rapist should be dealt with compassion, but the one who corrupts his mind—the lingerie seller of his neighborhood—should be punished severely.

2. The elitist media should be banned from promoting the western notions of gender equality and women’s freedom.

3. After banning the lingerie advertisements on TV, in newspapers and on billboards or hoardings, the government should censor all the vulgar images on the net originating from India or abroad. They should follow the Saudi model of blackening women’s exposed body parts in still images and in movie frames.

4. Erotic sculptures, like the ones found at Ajanta, Ellora and Khajuraho, should be cemented and painted for the sake of decency.

5. Even though most of the women in our country are forced to dress conservatively, and are ordered to keep distance from men, they are still able to tempt men and turn them into rapists. Therefore women need to take some extra precautions. I can think of only one surefire solution to save our men from violating women’s bodies. Get all the women to stitch up their vaginas and cut off their breasts. Off with the roots of all evil.

The BJP leaders and other Sena leaders who want to clean up our society to make it morally upright should lead by example.

  3. You are right that our country is labelled as the haven for rapists. It is unfortunate. I personally feel that punishment for this act must be made very strict..Death penalty, beating the person in a crowded market place or even removing the organ . Yesterday I read in the newspaper that a 25 year old man raped his 85 year old grand mother. How shameful !

  6. This is a relief actually. Menfolk have been on backfoot since December the 16th. Thanks to Tawade madam, we are good again.

    Continuing with the trend, I wonder what are they going to do with the billboards showing male undergarments. "That is what promotes homosexuality", someone might be boiling to say so :)

  12. Bang on GB!

    "Therefore, a rapist should be dealt with compassion, but the one who corrupts his mind—the lingerie seller of his neighborhood—should be punished severely." - Sarcasm is the cure of all this madness.

    Although I am quite a bit against those vulgar item songs and treatment of actresses as sexual objects and portraying them as such onscreen. And the easy availability of free porn over the internet. Remember that recent incident in which a school bus attendant showed children porn on his phone? I do not support stupidity in the form of mannequin bans but maybe we should spare a thought for the existing sexual imagery in society today.

    1. Thanks Sammy! I do like item numbers which are catchy. I will post this years list soon enough. People should be educated so that they understand the difference between reel and real.
