So we had a little tiff, no big deal. For example, you and I both watch American football, and have seen (very good) NFL quarterbacks sometimes scold their own (very good) receivers, and vice versa.



No major network is perfect. For example, the leading left-of-center cable news channel in the United States is MSNBC. As Microsoft has almost no editorial role, its the cable news outlet of NBC; which is a subsidiary of General Electric. So there's one set of issues MSNBC's usually aggressive hosts largely ignore: anything nuclear (be it power generation or weapons). I find The Big Fight debate show on NDTV interesting, but that doesn't mean host (and CEO) Vikram Chandra is necessarily a future Saint, or should be so judged.
I mean really.

I was surprised to find, even in this thread, the very mentality that your fellow countrywomen are protesting against. When I saw the picture on CNN of women holding up the sign "don't tell your daughters not to go, tell your sons to behave themselves", I immediately want to post it here but someone else had already beaten me to it.
I believe this is the post you are talking about.

It was long overdue for Start Da Game to get out of this thread.


I don't why, but for some reason, he had convinced himself he was making headway.

He actually believes he would be successful in stopping or discouraging non-Indians from posting in this thread.
For him, anyone critical of Indian institutions (politicians , law enforcement, judicial system) for not taking the crime of sexual violence against women seriously, was really on a mission to smear India and its people; show India in a bad light.


And that was unacceptable to him. He even asserted non-Indians were not qualified to comment on the matter and were not invited.
Adding, India is beyond the understanding of non-Indians, it is too complex for them.


He finally gave up when he realized it wasn't just I and a couple of posters who find his comments nonsensical, but as more posters discover the thread and read his posts, without exception, each was shocked by his comments and the vitriol in them in light of thread subject matter.

Do you want me to quote the US numbers? (it's more than three times).
You still don't get it, this is not about the USA. It about India, specifically the crime of rape, sexual violence in this particular context.
I don't know of any Americans in this discussion or elsewhere who has argued there is no rape in our country. It is how you deal with it which is on trial here.

As I told Start Da game when he asked me if I wanted more stats, I responded he could do as he wishes


The question before us is. Why is it that this crime of rape, sexual violence against women, is not taken seriously in India?
That also seems to be the question the demonstrators, men and women, are asking.
The answer to this question does not lie in the FBI statistics. That is just a diversion tactic that does not move the discussion forward.


You know very well, that there have been several discussions about US and its shortcoming on this forum, and anybody, including non-Americans, can participate.

Regarding the crime of rape, there was a time in this history this country ,the USA, where rape was not taken seriously; it took people of good will to tell to their elected officials, the law enforcement, that it was not acceptable.
It take demonstrations, civil right groups organizing, community organizations to convince hearts and mind of people who were previously indifferent.

Re: India gang rape outrage... what happens now?

What we should really be talking about is the social and economic conditions that led to this rape and other rapes. I think Ashi(?) mentioned that these men were from the slums and had little going for them. They were unlikely to get wives or regular jobs. These are the issues we should be talking about rather than something like "the culture that produces this violence..." Because there is nothing wrong with Indian culture. There is something wrong with Indian society right now due to the social and economic conditions that are in the country right now. So instead of talking about this, if westerners are saying that somehow it's Indian culture that's allowed this to happen then it's pretty insulting.

But of course, people don't want to talk about root causes, it's all about sensationalist politics when something like this happens and then it's forgotten.

I also find it insulting that this is compared to something like gun shootings in US. Because this is a result of deep social and economic problems not a result of 50% of the citizens deciding "Hey I want to have a gun". It's not easily solved.

Re: India gang rape outrage... what happens now?

I think this kind of things or incidence happens in India not because of their culture and social and economic condition but the cheap tendency or mentality of some people over there about a women or a girl.

First of all you can't believe that only men from the slums abuse women in a culture where women are afraid to report rapes to the authorities and secondly not talking about these atrocities won't change the poverty in India. I'm just happy that the people of India have had enough and are letting their government and the world know they've had enough and aren't taking it anymore.

Re: India gang rape outrage... what happens now?

Wow Some of the people in this thread as well as the ones out there are all just too busy with their own agendas, instead of focusing on whats important and right.

Disgusting to see some people trying to sweep this under the rug, point fingers at the short-comings of other countries to defend their own, use stereotypes to attack a culture, use culture as a defense for repressive and backward practices and present their narrow, ignorant views as facts. What the heck?

Not even going to bother with the 'why do women even need to go out at night' comments. Disturbing.
