Sexism In India

This really sucks. Why does it have to be that way - is it religion, or some other cultural influence?

So, why is America such a shithole for women?

You want the long story or the short one.

The short one is, 'It's whatever reason you come up with save for genetics'.

I don't think that's fair. Life is safer and more free for women in America than in most other parts of the world. Being sold into sex slavery is an exceptional circumstance, but these gender specific rules are an everyday reality in parts of India and many parts of the world. That's not to say I believe India is all about being raped 24/7, but I believe there is an issue there.

Both, actually. Christianity has some pretty fucked up ideas about slavery. Then again, you didn't really want to know what I think about that article.

Since I'm clearly going blind and/or retarded, could someone please show me where I "painted all of India with "that article's brush"?

I didn't either. I mentioned that the bigger cities are safer but i can't deny that on average we're less safe than America and most of the west.

I suppose that can be inferred from you calling India a "shithole," a statement that can definitely be seen as offensive to people who live in India. The only evidence you provided that India is a shithole is that article.

I believe this is far from the ideal way to begin this discussion, but the question is one I find interesting. Gender equality is in a worse state in some places than others, and I'd like to know why that is.

Eh, they have (had?) a female prime minister.

Women are raped and stuff but hey, no glass ceiling. That makes them 300% better than the entire west according to some.

PS: sleep deprived.

To be fair, it is expected to be touched in all crevices riding a train like this one.

Well yeah going 'shithole' is a little inflammatory. I mean i kind of agree but you could stand to be just a scooch more diplomatic. it's like family, you can call your mom a bitch but you'll knock anyone else who does it flat on their ass.

As for the reasons... I guess it's because efforts to create more equal societies just spread at different rates in different places for reasons that are too numerous to list if we're being realistic here.

Had. And she sort of suspended democracy for two years when it looked like she might get the boot.

Of course as it turns out no one else could actually do the job so we voted her back in.

Well, I am Brazilian, I can call Brazil a shithole the entire day. But for outsiders, a foreigner calling another country a shithole is offensive. Some people just don't like seeing someone shit talking someone's else thing, be it race, religion, or nationality. Which is not a bad sentiment, you see. Just unnecessary sometimes.

Not saying this one was, though.

Learn with Brazil and India, America.

Fair enough - I've changed the title to something less inflammatory.
