You might accuse this blog of looking increasingly like it’s run by a 16 year old teenage nincompoop who can’t handle the hormones in her body and is filled with a rage to match Satan’s ego. Well, you’d be wrong.
But yes this is yet another rant and what else am I supposed to do? So far away from the horrors of a culture I’m trying to bleach away from my skin, the subtle reminders of the failed society seem to creep into the very life I’m trying to avoid. What am I supposed to do when a Pakistani drama I’m not going to publicize here invokes the concept that every man in our society is good f he doesn’t keep his daughters from leaving the house.
Listen. You. Failures. In. The. Industry.
Women. Are. Not. Jokes.
Our. Struggle. Is. Not. A.Source. Of. Entertainment.
Stop. Creating. Shows. That. Underline. The. Fact. That. Good. Men. Don’t. Hit. Their. Wives. AS. IF THAT’S THE DEFINITION OF GOOD.
Yes we have no shortage of bad men in our country or men in general.
Start using condoms people.That doesn’t mean that every other man who isn’t a wife beater who “let’s their daughters leave the house.” Is a good man. Start perpetuating the concept of respect, start creating men that are good in the fundamental human way. People who don’t kill other people are not good people they are normal people. Stop idealizing men who don’t find women inferior to them. Start idealizing men who treat us equally.
Stop. Centering. Shows. About. Domestic. Violence. On. Men.
For the love of common sense.
All our dramas and tv serials show is the story of a man who hits his wife and changes at the end. WHAT ABOUT THE WOMAN? What are her feelings, her thought processes, why is she always shown as the forgiving humble type who keeps bearing the torment of her male “superiors” and in the end is rewarded for her patience by getting a man who doesn’t treat her like shit. All we see in our dramas are men men men men men when it’s about women? All the woman does in our dramas is cry. Which is the only accurate representation of our society, women crying. Everything else is dramatized mixed with some masalas to create entertainment. YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO ENJOY WATCHING WOMEN GETTING TREATED LIKE THEY AREN’T HUMANS. WHY DOES THIS STILL NEED TO BE SAID?
ABUSE. IS. NOT. ENTERTAINING.
That’s why I like dramas like Udaari. Real, tragic, cruel but strong well thought of good characters. It’s not entertaining. It’s just good.
Long story short:
Stop talking about men so much.Stop idealizing men.
Stop teaching us to bear everything instead of
killing the motherfucker doing something ourselves.(Yes, I know sometimes we can’t do anything ourselves at least show the woman trying. AT LEAST SHOW US THAT WE CAN TRY.)
Show that we don’t need men to save us. SHOW THAT WOMEN SHOULD STICK TOGETHER #WOMENEMPOWERMENT #GIRLLOVE
And for the sake of art: BE CREATIVE? A TWELVE YEAR OLD WHO BELIEVES IN SANTA CLAUS CAN THINK OF A BETTER PLOT THAN YOU CAN. SO CAN I.
OUR DRAMAS LOOK LIKE THEY’VE BEEN MADE BY MELANIA TRUMP SOME CHEAP CARBON COPY OF A BETTER VERSION THAT FAILS TO BRING ANYTHING BUT THE NOTION THAT WE ARE DUMB.
WHY DOES THIS STILL NEED TO BE SAID?
Even Bollywood isn’t that pathetic anymore.
Even Bollywood wants to grow up.
