The International Who's That Day

Well. Yes. Who's that? The first question we ask ourselves today is how do we classify them? It's a difficult task. We have figured out eveything else, I mean we know Black from white, essential from luxury, Animals from humans. Dogs from cats, Water from soda. We have even figured out the periodic table for classification from elements. 



We seem to be still confused about what to do with the 50 percent of the population of the world. It must be such a monumentous problem to solve. 
So far the options put worth seem to be one of the below 

A. Consumer goods: They can be bought. If you can play the emotional card right you might even get them for free. In some countries of the world, they even come home with goodies. You should be so lucky. 

B. Furniture and Furnishings :  The pre- requisites of this status are very fundamental. They belong to the house. They need to be used as per the services that they are bought to provide. The services may exclude  any freedom of expression. They must have the emotional quotient of your favorite arm chair. 

C. Maid Service : Well. Whoever they are, this is their gender description. This species was born to please. 
This is the closest category to humanization of this species. However the fact that some times they may not obey the master's directions is the biggest risk of this classification. They do not have the right to dissent. 

D. Entitler : This might be the most complicated classification. And the simplest. They are the species that enables entitlement of the other gender. Just by existing. So the entitled can exercise harassment, violence, rape and abuse as they please. The violaters have privileges that including blaming the entitler for their existence, behavior or fashion sense. 

The celebrations for the International Women's day are filling up the media channels. We are all patting ourselves on our back and reveling in borrowed glory. These same channels will have the spaces replaced by stories of violence, injustice and abuse as soon the day ends. 

This cycle of one day of year glory is perhaps the saddest occurrence of our times. The classification issue needs to be resolved. After all we have solved more difficult problems as the human race. How has treating women as equal been such a colossal failure ? And the fact that there still needs to an International Women's Day is perhaps the world's way to celebrating that failure. Happy Who's That Day.

SO WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN ?

We have been fighting a religion defined definition of “ when did the life of a fetus begin”. It is a trap. The debate around this whole concept is so ridiculous that when you see pages of theories being written about the exact time “life took a birth”

Why I call this entire argument ridiculous is because technically everything is life. A cell is a life. An ant is a life, a plant is a life. Zygotes are life too. However, if you choose to mourn the zygote the same way you chose to mourn taking the dead cells off the bottom off your feet- is a decision you need to make with yourself.



All of these arguments around “life” distract from the actual issue, which is that no human should be required to share their organs with another human. No human should be required to sacrifice their life for another human. The intention or reason behind abortion is irrelevant in the context of the right to bodily autonomy.
I would argue that the Liberal “pro-choice” people who aggressively insist that abortio…

THE ABORTION FIGHT IS NOT ABOUT ABORTION

It's about firing the 2020 base. And the mainstream media is helping Trump


When Trump spewed his most preposterous lie about abortion in a rally about how full-term babies were killed by Doctors; do you think no one in the crowd was grown up enough to know that it was a lie? These are full grown people who make more important and logical decisions in their lives every day- what to buy; what to do, where to spend, how to earn a living. Do you think they do not know that Trump was concocting imagery for the benefit of creating a national debate about disgust towards the concept of “abortion”? Abortion is painful. Emotionally, it never leaves a woman. I aborted in 1998, then miscarried in 2008 and 2011. Each time, I named those cells and fetuses, celebrate their lives and created a story for their absence in mine, those cells, which could not find viability, for one reason or the other. So for someone, and these 25 white men, and several others, who have never been through that life-…

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 




The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.
