India Needs a Sexual Revolution

India Needs a Sexual Revolution | TalkSexIndia | Scoop.it
India's sexual mores and institutions are rooted in a pastoral past. To stop the constant harassment of women, change the country's puritanical culture.
Saliha Bava's insight:

Navrati, Shikha Dalmia writes in the WSJ, an "ancient practice wasn't meant to pamper the girls. It served to remind men of the qualities—mental courage, spiritual wisdom, purity of mind and strength of character—embodied in the feminine spirit, without which, according to Hindu scriptures, the cosmos would collapse into decadence and chaos." How are Indian men upholding this as a WAY of BEING not just as token ritual? Treating women as sexual property is NOT the glorification of this ancient practice.

Prejudices within the medical fraternity: Women and sexuality in India

Prejudices within the medical fraternity: Women and sexuality in India | TalkSexIndia | Scoop.it
Saliha Bava's insight:

We need to change medical practices that promote subjugation of women's sexuality.

 

Rini Fernandes states "In this strongly patriarchal societal fabric it is hard for an unmarried young woman to be honest and vocal about her pre-marital sexual activity. Surprisingly enough even the female doctors in the medical fraternity speak the patriarchal language of controlling women’s sexuality by ways of instilling guilt and shame when their real job is to only treat the medical condition that they have been trained at."

 

She states the change we need. "To start with, we really need gender sensitizing education imparted within the medical curriculum where medical students are taught to deconstruct their prejudices against any gender."

Consensual sex with intention to marry is not rape: Supreme Court

Consensual sex with intention to marry is not rape: Supreme Court | TalkSexIndia | Scoop.it
The Supreme Court on Monday said that if a man has consensual sex with a woman with the intention to marry her, then it cannot be termed as rape, even though the marriage does not take place.
Saliha Bava's insight:

The court said "She was conscious of the fact that her marriage may not take place owing to various considerations, including the caste factor. Hence it could not be said that she had not given her consent for having sex with the accused." By this decision the Judge keeps caste system alive and connects the consciousness of the caste system to who one should or should not have sex with!

 

If she was from the same caste, would the Judge have upheld it is rape? And who is of higher caste here?
