I don’t get it. I just don’t. What could possibly be the reason for this? Hurting a child, who is probably not even aware of how is she different from the one who did that to her. A child! What do you do in such a case? What do you talk about? Patriarchy? That cannot lead to this. Progressive attitude of the girl? Revealing clothes? Daring to walk alone? WHAT? What could one possibly attribute this to?

Deranged minds? Psychological disorders? There are a bit too many cases like these to shrug them off giving these reasons.

Solution? Gender sensitization? How the hell does that sensitize people to not rape a child? Girl, OR a boy? A child for god’s sake!

If I ever decide to have a kid, I don’t think I will have the courage to bring a girl into this world. What could possibly justify bringing a being into this world only to be harassed or molested or raped or murdered at some point in her life? How will I let her play outside with her friends? How will I trust her to a relative? How will I keep her safe? How will I let her be?
