Isn't this a patriarchal society?In the last few days, news in Kerala has been capturing a lot of attention from the audience. It is that a beauty pageant winner and runner-up died in a car accident. The incident took place when they were returning from a night DJ party which was held at a luxury hotel. Subsequent news reports lead to some mysteries that need to be unraveled. But that is not what I came to say. When I saw this news as a Facebook post in my feed by some of the news channel accounts, I happened to see the comment section. I need to say this, but the comments were extremely disturbing and disgusting.
"Why did they go to the night DJ party?"
"Why did they go out with their friends at night?"
"Parents should have been more careful while raising their daughters."
"They should be ashamed of themselves to go out to these parties in luxury hotels."
And some comments were really pointing their fingers by questioning the ladies' character. These comments were posted not only by men but also by women.
You know what, they were really capable people. They were successful in their careers. And one of them was a doctor. Even then the society blames them or even their families only because they are women? I feel like I still live in an extremely patriarchal society. How do you feel about this?
