Comment of the Week: “Don’t Behave Like Feminists”

Illustration: Sushant Ahire


here are few conversations that command more attention in modern India than women’s safety. Fuelled by the despicable news of an Indian man groping a US woman on a plane while she was asleep, we published a scathing, satirical takedown of lecherous Indian men titled “Why do Indian Men Turn Into Gropers on a Plane?”

We’d be lying if we said we hadn’t foreseen the deluge of angry, triggered comments of folks accusing us of everything from being “third-wave feminists” to having “biases against Indian men”. If a comment thread isn’t marred by accusations of misandry and libtard-esque slurs, is it even an Arré comment thread?
