We live in a world where human rights are males-only rights. Females are suppressed in various, humiliating ways under the name of ‘traditions’ and ‘religion’. Sadly, a picture of a young girl beaten by her brother went viral, and the responses to it are atrocious.
Social Media has exploded with a picture of a girl beaten by her brother for wearing what people called ‘scandalous’ clothes. We’re not completely sure if it happened this way or not—if it’s even that—but the responses to the situation are maddening in spite of its authenticity.
People approved of what he did, praising him for his masculinity. It’s 2017 and people still can’t differentiate between monstrosity and ‘manliness’.
Here’s how people reacted:
We live in a sad, twisted reality where females rush before males to support what befalls on them on a regular basis. We open our arms, welcoming the abuse and then complain about lack of rights! We allow the likes of these monsters to roam freely and spread horror and humiliation against us. Regardless of gender, regardless of age and race, we stand still with tied hands and let it happen.
If that’s how we react to violence, by encouraging it or at least keeping our lips shut about it, then what’s left for us to hope for? If we support such things under the name of religion and traditions, then we really deserve what we get.
This is not the first time we come across provoking Facebook posts like this, less than a month ago a woman was hospitalized for liking Dhafer and people still approved. Whether those news are fake or true, the comments are still an indicator that we’re slowly losing our humanity.
