Confessions Of A Molester

Image Courtesy : Google Images/publicdomainpictures.net. Edited by Bloggeray

I could see her toned skin and her milky thighs. Her open hair and that glossy lip. She was asking for it!
**

I could see you execrate me. Let’s make one thing clear – this whole molester tag is false. I only did what she wanted. She was asking for it!

**

I could see her bare midriff and cleavage in that nonexistent dress. Her navel seemed to be hypnotising me. She was asking for it!

I could see she had lost all decency — drinking with other men, laughing, shamelessly parading her body to all and sundry. This at 11:30 pm in the city’s main square when the whole country awaited midnight. Was there any doubt? Nah. She really was asking for it!
**

I could see the policemen on patrol, sitting in their cars or standing at the corners. They know she is of loose character. The way that policeman looked at her and smirked, I knew he knew that she was asking for it!

**

I could also see in that policeman’s eyes that he was sympathetic to me. There are a million rules in this country favouring the women. No one thinks of us men! He wasn’t going to trouble me for anything. I wouldn’t be harassed through courts on some false charges. Doesn’t the law say that it is okay as long as it is consensual between two adults? Well, that’s my clean chit. I was only tending to the lady’s request. You know, she was actually asking for it!
**

I could see what kind of a family she would be from. This was what Indian culture and values had denigrated to. God had made women to tend to the kitchen, stay under the veil/purdah and bear their husbands’ kids. She had no business being out here. By roaming out this late at night, she was asking for it!

**

I could see why she wouldn’t wear a saree. Or even a salwar-suit. She wanted to be devoured by men, as many as possible. She liked being beaten and used. I can identify such women with one gaze. They like being servile. Once you slap and hit them enough, they fall in line. They do as you ask them to. Had she worn a saree instead of walking around half-naked in that tank top and miniskirt, maybe cultured, sanskaari boys would have spared her. But dressed or, heh, undressed like this, she was always asking for it!

**

I could see the effects of rampant westernisation. Values and morals have been eroded completely. In the glorious past, we were always a honourable nation. We respected women and elders (never mind the Mahabharata!). And then these firangis came with their mill cloths and destroyed the fabric of our country (pun intended!). They brainwashed the innocent women of our country into drinking alcohol and mingling with men who were strangers. What I was seeing today was inevitable. Unhinged from her cultural identity, she was asking for it!

**

I used one of the three options I had :

  1. I grabbed her and had my way with her. With that sexy body and the way she was looking, she was asking for it.
  2. I kidnapped her and forced her to accept me as hers. Once she was kidnapped, her family had to disown her. They probably already knew of her ways by then. She had nowhere to go.
  3. And now my favourite. I threw acid at her. Yes! She was so proud of that face. I forced her to remember every single day for the rest of her life that if it wasn’t going to be me, it wouldn’t be anyone else.

**

It wasn’t my fault at all. When a girl calls nudity fashion and incites poor me to grab her and enjoy her body, what am I supposed to do? After all, even Gods have lost when faced with the wiles of women. I’m a mere mortal. Unless her mentality is rectified, she will, time and again, keep asking for it!

**

Don’t blame me. Blame the girl. Where there is gasoline, there will be fire. Where there are such loose morals, such incidents do happen! I gave it to her ‘coz, you know, she was asking for it!

P.S. : The Bengaluru mass molestations were a fresh blot on our national conscience. It’s high time men, Indian men, understood that a woman is an equal human being, not a toy or a property.

I’d love to have your feedback in the comments.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Its a sad state of affair that our country is facing. Its not going to change till Indian men are brought up rightly by their own mothers and fathers. They think its their right and I have heard boy friends telling their girl friends that “you are my property”. Till this sickening mentality of objectifying women, things will not change. Bangalore event is one of the reminders that nothing has changed – absolutely nothing. The minister confirming that either stay indoors or go out and face these show that our leaders themselves are sick and need to be actioned against.

    1. It is an all-pervading malaise. The least a minister/leader can do after such a horrible incident is taking steps to ensure the guilty are punished and making sure such incidents aren’t repeated. Instead, our great leaders find the easier way out. Blame the victim!

      Regarding that “you are my property” mentality, work needs to be done at home and school levels to ensure such thinking doesn’t take root. Unfortunately, families think their toddlers dancing to misogynistic songs is fine. And when those same grow up to be eve-teasers, all hell breaks loose. Girls need to take a stand in these relationships of theirs too. Why should she be okay with being called someone’s property? She’s a free human being in a free nation.

  2. Ohhhhhhh you echo my sentiments on this topic. In fact it’s sheer coincidence or fate, I don’t know, that one of my guest posts on a friend’s blog has been approved on the same topic. I have,being a woman, faced SO many of such lecherous and twisted men (I’m sorry I haven’t seen women doing it) who have not just eyed, or commented, but gone waaaaay beyond that. And it all happens because we suffer such ignominous bastards. This also happens because our society engenders contempt against women, and because we women ourselves overlook, ignore or suffer it. I know some twisted women who infact ech the same sentiment as you quoted in the text, ‘she was asking for it’.

    This is a wonderfully written article depicting a society who’s men have somehow come to think that it’s women are always, ALWAYS at fault.

    1. I guess that’s the pity. Lecherous men know they can get away with doing anything because the society, the lawmakers and the law enforcement, all seem to think it is the fault of the woman who was assaulted.
      You make a pertinent point about the women who too think the same way. When I see something like that happening, I’m reminded of the adage, “Aurat hi aurat ki sabse badi dushman hai.”
      Thank you for all the appreciation. Where do you guest blog at?

      1. Oh and I think women are the BIGGEST perpetrators of crimes against their own kinds…. All those saas bahu jhagdas, the views of their sons, the importance that the give to having a woman/beti/bahu being subordinate to the patriarchs and men of the family, this is the root cause… In fact I once got into a fight with my prof in college who was a big feminist – i wanted to know just how and why she thought domestic violence is only perpetuated by men when the tussles area always among the women.

        1. They will spare nothing in torturing their own families and then watch those saas-bahu soaps and curse the reel-life baddies.
          Stronger, ready-to-take-a-stance women would lead the change outwards from their own homes. Blaming men for the overt violence they commit is correct but scrutiny of the covert violence women commit against each other must also be done.

  3. the whole nation was ” asking for it” , asking for this article and such harsh reality to get uncovered of those revellers who were directly/indirectly are staining Indian culture. exceptionally well written bhaiya. your narration from “his” side reminded me of dialogues being recited from movie PINK. one more thing I would like to ask is that where are morals of these people?? did they attained their goal for being a successful person at first place and hence considering this acts as the “last resort remaining”? why this perseverance from women/girls??.would love to have answers of these questions in ur next article. thank you.

  4. Thank you for all the appreciation. The perpetrators would always say that the victim was to blame. The really painful and tragic part is that the people responsible for law-enforcement are also saying so. Sad state of affairs.

  5. it really saddens me to hear all such news coming from someplace considered safe for girls.. I mean compared to north.. no once can think of moving alone at night.. n it really distress me ..the problem is that fuckers like these are not seriously punished by the system and police . Wearing a short skirt can never tell u the character of a person.. if it is so then all these men wearing pants and t-shirts are fucking sanskari just cuz they aren’t showing of their legs.. these people need to be sued .retard brains. i am glad that u took up this topic and presented it so nicely..

  6. It is indeed pathetic that I cannot disagree with this. Very well written!! When the law makers themselves cannot see the flaw our country is infused with, I don’t think there is a hope for change in attitudes or mindset. It is very depressing to realize in spite of so many incidents against women, few men still find it easy and encouraging to indulge in such activities. Unless a fatal law is introduced and the male counterparts are brought up the right way since childhood, there is not really a hope. Literally nothing has changed for decades.

    I think you can submit this/write something on a similar note for Women’e Web as well?

    1. Yes, the mindset is what hasn’t changed. Even the day after the incident, I saw many people discussing this and the statements from the politicians and saying the same old thing — the girls should’ve known better, the statements are correct.
      The laws are already there, I think. The strict implementation of these laws is the more pressing concern. My post on capital punishment (yeah I’m doing self-marketing) also discussed this.
      I have already submitted this to the Women’s Web team. Let’s see how they respond.
      Thank you for the warm appreciation and sharing your thoughts. 😊

      1. Oh great! 🙂 Not self marketing at all! It is indeed a pleasure to know related articles of yours. 🙂 I shall definitely check it out. Strict implementation of these laws is also something that cannot be obvious, as they haven’t for all these years. Again it is the mentality of lawmakers/ doers and leaders as well, it’s deep rooted. Unless this issue is treated as the worst we can have, nothing really changes I guess.

  7. All my body could respond with is rage and fury. Problem has always been the orthodox and creepy mind-sets. And these can be handled only through harsh, unbearable punishments, which our country is yet to implement in its law.
    Bangalore’s incident showed us a phase which we are leading to. Sooner we realize this, better for us, our people, our nation.

    1. Hello Idle Muser (aka Aditi).
      It was an outrageous and ignominious incident, and the response has been along predictable lines too.
      I, however, beg to differ from you about the punishment. What we need, as I have mentioned in the post about capital punishment, is rigorous implementation of the existing laws. If at least that is done, such perverts will think a 100 times before doing something like that.

      Thank you for the follow. Fortuitously, you are the 400th follower of this blog. 😊

      1. I feel great when I become somebody’s ‘multiple-of-hundred’ follower.😁 Congratulations!😊
        And as per the punishments for such crimes, I still feel strongly that more cruel way of punishing have to be devised, as eve-teasing marks the start for future savage crimes. And the laws which are currently there in books need to be actually implemented and practiced rigorously.

        1. Thank you. 😁
          We can think about more stringent laws and serious punishments but, when these relatively easy laws aren’t implemented correctly, what good will those harsher laws do?
          The problem is with our implementation and that needs to be taken care of, first and foremost. Only then would having harsher laws make sense.
