The right to deny or to give consent takes the power away from Patriarchy, and gives it to the individual.

The Indian government [link] and the society [link] and hence the Indian legal system [link] seem to continue to believe that Indian men and women do not need to understand, respect, seek, give or deny Consent. This leads to some problems.

Like, is it possible for someone to respect women, if they have no idea that women are people with equal rights?

And can women be said to have equal rights, if they are not permitted to withhold or to give consent?

Can lack of respect be cured with appeals to display respect [link]?

And where does this disrespect come from?

A large part of it comes from genuinely believing that women’s consent in matters that directly concern them is not relevant [link], and though abuse, violence and disrespect are unpleasant, they are either unavoidable or even necessary to maintain the status quo. Many of us are afraid of any change.

Also, we do not seem to understand Consent as much as we understand Honor – which is why, (amongst other things) – forced sex or rape within marriage is more acceptable to many of us, than consensual sex outside marriage (which is strongly condemned as immoral). [link]

I think it is particularly difficult when not just the society, but even the law does not acknowledge women’s right to bodily autonomy.

The fact is, like anything logical – Consent is easy to understand. But Consent is empowering for those who are directly involved, the right to deny or to give consent takes the power away from Patriarchy, and gives it to the individual.

Respecting women, for most Indians does not mean respecting them as equal individuals, it often includes controlling their lives and sexuality, and as a result – women being allowed to choose their own partners is troubling for many. An extreme case was Mahendra Singh Tikait who is quoted to have said, “…Only whores can choose their partners.” [link]

What would change if Consent in sexual relationships was understood and accepted by the society and the law makers, as the most crucial factor in determining whether the act was a morally or legally a crime or not?

Here’s a video that explains Consent.

A Guest Post by Freebird.

I came across this other post: I Got Raped With My Consent. That Will Always Be The Most Horrible Memory Of My Life

I don’t think consensual sex which doesn’t involve any coercion should be treated as rape at any cost. So I find the statement ‘I said ‘yes’ but it was ’emotional rape” very contradictory.

But what I didn’t understand, and do find disturbing, is this:

In this story, why didn’t this girl ever realize that it was OK for her to say ‘no’after saying ‘yes’? Saying ‘yes’ doesn’t mean a blanket sanction to any sexual activity. It is perfectly right to set boundaries, or ask the other person to stop when she was getting uncomfortable. If he was hurting her and she was in pain, why isn’t it clear that she had every right to tell him to stop hurting her and not engage in things which were painful to her? And the moment this message is conveyed clearly and if he still carries on, it does becomes ‘rape’ (not an esoteric ’emotional rape’). Whether it can be proved or not is a different issue. That doesn’t change the fact that it is rape when the other person is violating your boundaries.

It’s possible that he has no idea that ‘sex without consent’ is rape. He probably views rape as a punishment for women who don’t know their place.

Do you know of any efforts to inform him otherwise?

Delhi bus rapist blames his victim in prison interview

You can’t clap with one hand – it takes two hands,” he says in the interview. “A decent girl won’t roam around at 9 o’clock at night. A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boy and girl are not equal. Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes. About 20 per cent of girls are good.”

“The parties being husband and wife, the sexual intercourse between the two does not come within the ambit of the offence of rape, even if the same was against the will and consent of the victim,”

Since sexual assaults are not legally permitted to live in partners, then aren’t women safer from sexual assaults (and other things, like threats of divorce, dowry demands, pressure to bear male children etc) in Live in Relationships than in marriages?

But while the rest might be true – sexual assaults in Live in Relationships continue to be defined in Patriarchal terms. Meaning – a sexual assault in a Live-in Relationship continues to be seen, not as an assault on the person but as an attack on the rights of the future husband [link].

Which is why, Making Marital Rape a legal offence is the fastest way to make it clear that Rape means forced sex, not lost Virginity or Honor.

Dev the actor-turned-politician.

“You either shout or enjoy rape, says Trinamool’s glamour candidate”

[Read more here]

 

Talking to Bengali tabloid Ebela, the actor-turned-politician said: “Eighty to ninety per cent of the media is now focussing on Ghatal. The news that Dev is contesting from Ghatal has become a hot topic. It is nice that a place like Ghatal has also become popular.”

 

Is he enjoying the moment? To this, Dev said he is feeling as if he is being raped. “You either enjoy or you shout,” the interview quoted him as saying.

So what do they have in common?

1. Neither of them seems to see rape as a serious criminal sexual assault.

2. They don’t seem to have any concept of consent in a sexual activity.

3. They probably assume that women’s consent is not relevant hence it is possible (thinks Dev) for someone being sexually assaulted to enjoy the assault.

4. Muthalik actually doesn’t think women should participate in consensual sexual activity at all, unless other people approve of the activity (in which case, again, their consent has no value, because their family elders have consented on their behalf).

Why are they so ignorant about something that they seem to talk so easily about?

I suspect one reason is that there is no talk of women’s consent in any activity – their careers, pregnancies, marriages, sex lives; and also because even today, many don’t see anything wrong with the fact that marital rape is not a crime, but consensual sexual activity between two consenting teenagers is a crime in this country. It can confuse someone who has never given it much thought.

Shakti Mills gang-rape case: Judge slams 2-finger test, identity parade

… strongly reprimanded JJ Hospital for conducting the “unscientific archaic two-finger test” during the survivor’s medical examination.

Principal judge Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi said, “The Maharashtra government had come out with new guidelines and protocols on May 10 last year. These new guidelines and protocols have done away with unscientific and heavily criticized two-finger tests. The need is for the proper implementation of these guidelines.

 

“Medical procedures should not be carried out in a manner that constitutes cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and health should be of paramount consideration while dealing with gender-based violence. Undoubtedly, the two-finger test and its interpretation violate the right of rape survivors to privacy, physical and mental integrity and dignity.”

 

The court also criticized the manner in which the test identification parade (TIP) of the convicts was conducted. “Asking the rape victim to identify the suspect face to face by pointing a finger at him totally overlooks the mental trauma of the victim. One can imagine the situation where the victim is brought face to face with the rapist to identify him, that too within a few days of having faced tremendous trauma in a brutal incident,” the judge said. She further pointed out that it was necessary to conduct the TIP by video link to avoid the woman’s trauma. ”

Tehelka: How do you associate a sexual assault with someone who you thought stood up for justice?

Here is a case that was, at first, difficult to understand – because the person accused of attempting the sexual assault was someone who had seemed to be more likely to prevent than to attempt a sexual assault. But then how much did we know the person? We only knew the publication.

Do take a look at the young sexual assault survivor’s email that describes what happened: link removed

[Note:  The email has been removed from the above link, and I have removed the link. I think sharing some quotes from the statements (if any) made by the survivor would have been the right thing to do, instead of sharing a private email which does encroach upon the assault survivors’ privacy.

The reason I shared the link was that the email did help (me) in understanding the crime, specially when the perpetrator was someone I (many others) looked upon as morally upright, and for a change it was someone who was not blaming the victim (the email conveyed that his accusations were worse) and was willing to ‘atone’.  Now I feel, irrespective of the details of a crime, no matter how difficult to believe a crime is – a survivor’s story should be taken seriously without causing them further trauma and a thorough and immediate investigation should be carried out/demanded.] 

It seems he admitted to ‘an awful misreading of the situation‘. What if the survivor had not reported? Would he have continued to ‘misread the situation’?

It also seems that it was seen as enough, by those who were supposed to take action (Shoma Chaudhury) that he was permitted to choose what he should do to “atone” for “…a bad lapse of judgment, an awful misreading of the situation.”

Why was it thought that the one who allegedly committed a crime could choose what he should do to ‘atone’?

What action do you think should have been/should be taken?

Tejpal had on Wednesday announced his decision to step down as editor of Tehelka for six months following the journalist’s complaint to Chaudhury on November 18 alleging that while on duty she was sexually assaulted by Tejpal on two occasions on November 7 and 8 at the magazine’s annual ThinkFest.

Chaudhury also came under fire on Thursday for her handling of the situation. She had told a TV channel, “There was an incident which has been dealt with internally. An unconditional apology was extended by Tarun. The journalist concerned was satisfied with the action taken.” The journalist responded by saying, “I am deeply disappointed with Tehelka’s response. The claim that I am ‘satisfied’ is false.”

In her mail to Chaudhury, which details the two separate alleged incidents as well as everything that happened before and after, the journalist said, “Both times, I returned to my room in a completely distraught condition, trembling and crying.” She said she had reported both incidents to three colleagues who were also in Goa for the festival. She said Tejpal later sent her text messages insinuating that she had “misconstrued” the “drunken banter”.

What makes such men attempt sexual assaults? Disrespect for the person they assault? A sense of their own power to get away with the crime? Or just lack of awareness that ‘only Yes means Yes’?

There was another similar report, recently – ‘The woman said she was inebriated when a co-worker took her to a room and raped her.’ Weren’t such assaults ever reported earlier?

This case affirms, once again, that the biggest and the first step in tackling sexual assaults is ensuring that potential victims have a Voice.

Why should all acts of sexual harassment be taken seriously, even when there is no grievous physical injury? Because the mindset that makes men commit street sexual harassment is the same mindset that makes men commit heinous, aggravated rapes.

And because before a criminal commits a rape, he has generally got away with ‘eve teasing’ – street sexual harassment. Ram Singh in Delhi and the rapists in Bombay had committed similar crimes before they were arrested for rapes.

Actress Shweta Menon tells media she will withdraw molestation case against Congress MP

Hours after filing a First Information Report or FIR against Congress MP N Peethambara Kurup for alleged molestation, actress Shweta Menon issued a press statement saying she will withdrawn her complaint against Mr Kurup after his “repeated apology.” “In the wake of Mr Peetambhara Kuroop’s repeated public and personal apology about the incident at the President’s Boat Race at Kollam, I am withdrawing all legal and other actions against him,” a press release issued by the actress said.

Does this public apology indicate ‘a lesson learnt’ and would it discourage other sexual criminals?

Also, is sexual harassment a crime against the one victim who reports it or against the society (since such crimes make it extremely difficult for women to exercise their rights and freedoms – which leads to oppression and facilitates crimes)?

But most of all, what makes a man molest a woman or a child? I don’t mean his confidence that the crime would not be reported or he would not suffer any consequences – but what makes him want to molest someone? What makes him want to humiliate or hurt? And so, what does such an alleged sexual criminal mean if he asks for forgiveness for molesting? Does he mean he has started seeing women as people? Does it mean he has understood (how? when?) that no matter what the circumstances, he would not be ‘provoked’ to hurt another person? And seeing the propensity to ‘lose control’ should such people be allowed in public spaces?

My first reaction was actually to feel grateful. Grateful that the sexual crime was reported and the alleged molester (or other random people) didn’t say Indian culture (i.e. Patriarchy?) was being saved by teaching a lesson to the woman who was harassed. (like here).

DG says: “What is this business of apology and forgiving the sexual harassers. Will this really bring about a change? Two sentences on the national TV saying I am sorry and it was a misunderstanding will it teach any lesson to anyone – both the harasser and those contemplating of doing so in future. Both abused and the abuser are high profile public figures so what message are they sending to common people. Are the public figures even accountable of their private actions as means of social responsibility? If law makers cannot be held accountable what do we expect from common masses?”

Here is a TOI comment that I expected to hear – instead of an apology.

Its nothing but cheap publicity stunts thats it.. she can go for all hot and bold scene on screen but made an issue of off screen…

How is this TOI commenter unaware that a woman could choose to ‘go for’ any number of ‘all hot and bold scenes’ and would still have the right not to be molested?

Shouldn’t there be awareness campaigns that educate potential sexual criminals about the requirement of consent in sexual acts? Those who make such comments, how do they treat the women in their family, neighborhood and work places? (it doesn’t help that it is still legal for men to rape their wives – Making Marital Rape a legal offence is the fastest way to make it clear that Rape means forced sex, not lost Virginity or Honor.)

And this comment below is why sexual harassment or molestation should not be called ‘outraging a woman’s modesty’,

Would free access to sex education change this?
