Knowledge is power.
This rule is applicable to all the genders.
When somebody trying to kill you or wound you , as an individual you can 't keep silent.
You will try to protect yourselves by using your power. This is natural.
But unnecessarily if we attack somebody and saying that for self protection is not acceptable. In such cases the courts will definitely find out the truth and the culprit will be punished.
Exploiting the leverage given by the law is offense and can be punishable.
For self-defence, a person can use his techniques of martial art there is no problem under our legal system as for as a person is not harming anyone or killing anyone. Yes for those who don't obey laws will face heavy weight of the law.
These days there are lots of crimes being done against the females so it is essential for females to learn some techniques to protect themselves from such monsters and there is no harm in it. Even the police organise camps to teach ladies about the self-defence techniques. Karate and Taekwondo are the known techniques and can easily be learned so people emphasis more on them to teach these to ladies.
" We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
– Abraham Lincoln
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
No matter what the female gender would always get the favor in any type of circumstances & this is a proven fact that we discussed in the ISC too. The society needs to develop the taste of looking to both accordingly & not on the basis of some presumed thoughts and the sad part is that we have developed a taste of some presumed thought only.
In today's world wherever you are you are being recorded with you being not aware of the same. All those are then uploaded in Youtube.com & other sites & we just need to put up with some words & I am damn sure that the results would be unexpected to the imagination of many of us who still having with the thoughts that something is never possible.
The world has changed a lot but we have little time to think on the changes who is carried away with the presumed thoughts.
Refer to your following words in 66492613
"If someone offends a woman it is an inexcusable crime."
I beg to differ with you on this point. A woman, or even a man, can get offended for various reasons. All reasons may not warrant a physical attack on the offender. Suppose, I do not respond to someone's mail or messages, the person may feel offended, but does that warrant a physical attack? Is it an inexcusable crime? Well, I do not think so.
Moreover, a person may get offended due to his/her preconceived notions or misinterpretations, and the other person (the so called offender) may not have intended anything wrong. Does that situation warrant a physical attack on the offender?
When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new!
