A landmark new law seeking to protect women from domestic violence has come into effect in India. The law also bans harassment by way of dowry demands and gives sweeping powers to a magistrate to issue protection orders where needed.
Punishment could range from a jail term of up to one year and/or a fine of up to 20,000 rupees ($450).
Tackling domestic violence is all very well and honourable in principle of course, but predictably this is an entirely women-as-victims affair hijacked by fembots.
The law provides protection to the wife or live-in partner from violence at the hands of the husband or live-in partner or his relatives.
Besides physical violence, the law also covers forcing a wife or partner to look at pornography.
So fuck all to protect men then, even though men make up half of all domestic violence victims? Didn’t think so.
“We have been trying for long to protect women from domestic violence. In India alone, around 70% of women are victim of these violent acts in one or the other form,” junior minister for women and child development Renuka Chowdhury told the Press Trust of India news agency.
Oh, blow it out your arse. I’m sick of listening to these “statistics” endlessly quoted by feminists. Women earn 75% of what men earn, four-in-one women are raped, every day a billion women in the West have to open a door themselves because horrible lazy irresponsible men won’t hold them open for them, etc. They’re all just bollocks and not worth listening to. The fact that “domestic violence” encompasses all sorts of trivial crap, like a husband not letting his wife spend his money, means the number of women “suffering” it will obviously expand vastly. In one feminist study that I recall, a wife who used to physically assault her husband was said to be a victim of domestic violence because he neglected her by working long hours and she was driven to it! With such nonsense, it’s difficult to give a flying fuck when you hear about women suffering domestic violence.
Overall, a crime against women is committed every three minutes in India, according to India’s National Crime Records Bureau.
Yes, well, all crime is bad, but why is it especially awful and a case of Something Must Be Done when women are victims? Men are more likely to be the victims of crime. Besides, India has a population of over 1.1 billion. So that’s over 550,000,000 females. One of them suffering a crime – like being shown porn, oh noooo!! – every three minutes isn’t exactly an epidemic of femicide!
Did they work out how often a man is a victim of crime somewhere in India? I dare say it’s probably once every thirty-seconds or less.
But then, wherever you are in the world, feminists are the same; men don’t matter, women are eternal victims, give give give, more legislation and laws, etc.
PS FredX has a good piece of commentary about this too.

I would like to welcome all our Indian brothers to the crapper that is western feminism.
And we wonder why the rest of the world hates us. We just don’t seem to understand that they done want our value system.

that Renuka chowdhary is a big bitch, she was once arrested for hitting a senior police officer. Dont worry in India we have an advantage, our law system is so pathetic that anybody can bypass these laws easily. Sometimes having a failed criminal justice system helps.

At some point we have to admit that feminism is either a woman’s natural disposition or that someone more powerful is pushing for it. I doubt the latter theory because these women aren’t all being individually manipulated to act like this. I think it’s fairly obvious that if you are against feminism, you have to be generally against equality as well. Feminism IS the natural byproduct of giving women equal rights and equal power, they will immediately, with that equal footing, get more power and come to give themselves privileges. It’s just natural for them to act that way as the results bear out in every single new country. It’s men’s idealistic view of women that have undone thousands of years of careful societal and cultural planning and safeguards. Perhaps there is a God out there, and the end is near. I don’t see how you can put everything back into the Pandora’s Box now.

The feminist gender wage gap propaganda is BS, btw.

Kindly visit this site and you will know that India is not walking but running toward self-destruction, thanks to women.

Interesting comments from Anonymous. I also take the view that feminism is very close to women’s natural disposition, which is why it has had such a profound and enduring effect.
I would put women into one of four categories in respect of their approach to feminism.
Category A is the out-and-out man-hating type, proud to call herself a feminist and never so happy as when she is putting the boot into men. Everything bad and wrong is entirely the fault of men. Every illogical and unfair discrimination in favour of women is grist to her mill, because it can all be justified as payback for the thousands of years of oppression women have suffered at the hands of men. If challenged on her beliefs, she will attack her challenger with an incredible ferocity that will owe nothing to the truth and everything to her anger.
Category B is the lukewarm feminist. She will be quite comfortable with calling herself a feminist, but will distance herself from Category A women as she is not chewed up with rage and does not like the thought of being branded a man-hater. She is more likely to start her sentences with the words “I don’t hate men, but…” She will not go out of her way deliberately to hurt men, but will equally not go out of her way to help them if they are getting hurt, however unfairly. She fully subscribes to feminist theory and is therefore quite comfortable with any advantage she has over men, salving her conscience with the belief that men surely deserve the bad treatment they are getting. She is most certainly at one with the “X thousand years of oppression” canard and believes in it fervently. If challenged on her beliefs, she will argue her point and not accept any criticism that she might be wrong.
Category C is the woman who would never call herself a feminist, and will seek to distance herself from the term. She is most likely to start her sentences “I’m not a feminist, but…” She likes men and does not want to see them getting hurt by feminism. Nevertheless she has some considerable passing sympathy with the “X thousand years of oppression” canard, even if her knowledge of history pricks her conscience from time to time with the suggestion that it is not actually true. But however ambivalent her attitude to that theory, she nevertheless believes that women have had it hard in the past in comparison with men. She still believes intrinsically that it is a man’s world and there is still a lot of discrimination against women, which must be reversed. But conversely, she is quite comfortable with enjoying the advantages over men that feminism has brought her. She does not regard them as in any way unfair, or in contradiction of her fundamental belief that men have better lives than women. If challenged on her beliefs, she will initially try to justify them; but if the argument gets sticky for her she will back off and try to change the subject.
Category D is the woman who has never believed in the tenets of feminism because she knows they are hogwash and is honest enough with herself not to be tempted pay lip service to them just because they will buy her advantages that she knows are unfair on men. She understands that men’s lives are not just different from women’s, but fundamentally harder because of the additional burdens that they must bear and that most women have no real understanding of. She is sympathetic to men and is more likely to take their side in any sex war. She is also the only Category that does not believe that women have suffered X thousand years of oppression at the hands of men, and that this justifies giving women special privileges today. If challenged on her beliefs, she will argue them in much the same way as category B women.
Of the entire female population of the UK, I would put 2% in category A, 18% in category B, 78% in category C and 2% in category D. Note that unlike the statistics put out by feminists, mine actually add up to 100%.
While I am on a rant here is my acid test for women who say they believe in true equality between the sexes.
The acid test:
You are the mother of two beautiful, intelligent and happy girls aged 18 and 20. But a major war has broken out, casualties are massive and conscription has been introduced. Because there is a shortage of men (huge numbers have been killed or maimed already) the draft has been extended to women, and both your daughters have just got their call up papers. You know that these are virtual death warrants, as your girls will be given a few weeks basic training, shown how to fire a rifle, and will then be shipped out to the killing zone.
Of course you hate what has happened, but how do you feel about the fact that women are being called up alongside men? Decide which of the following best represents your views.
A. It’s obscene. This is not what the suffragettes fought for, and you will be damned if you let your beautiful daughters be slaughtered alongside the men. To hell with sex equality in wartime.
B. You agree with sex equality, but only up to a point – and this is the point beyond which you do not think it is right to go. Your daughters should be allowed to stay at home.
C. It’s perfectly fair; this is what sex equality is all about. If the men have to go, so should the women.
Did you pass the acid test?
If you answered A: You fail – and dismally. You are an out and out hypocritical sexist who pays lip service to equality but believe that it only comes into play when it suits you. In other words you don’t actually believe in equality at all. You just want all the goodies for females; meanwhile the men can just go off and die, that’s their job not yours. A pox on you.
B: Really no better than those who chose A. The only difference is that you are a little more diffident in your hypocrisy. Might you have a pang or two of conscience, with a little voice inside you somewhere saying that you have contradicted yourself? Not that you will let that change your mind in the slightest. A pox on you also.
C: You liar!

Feminism is the natural response of women who simply got fed up with being treated like second class citizens by selfish men.
The very fact that it is occurring outside of western civilization should tell you something about its origins. It obviously has nothing to do with western women, nothing intrinsic to us, but is universal in all societies…
So wake up…
Indian women, and btw, it will happen in China, Africa, S. America, the middle East and everywhere else that people exist, clearly got sick and tired of waiting for their brothers to do the right thing and simply decided to take matters into their own hands.
The bigger question should really be WHY in every society that exists must men be FORCED BY LAWS into treating their wives, daughters, sisters, even their mothers properly…can men ever do the right thing w/o a law punishing them if they don’t????
That’s the $64,000 question.
Even this shortage of women in these societies right now shows the outright selfishness of men when left to your own devices…you forced your wives to get abortions if they were pregnant with girl fetuses so you could have sons.
Now you have shot yourselves in the foot and have far more men in your population then a healthy balanced society can handle…
Look to many wars and social disorders in your future (terrorism, high crime rates, rebellions/riots, etc.,) due to your own foolishness.
It’s probably already too late for feminism to help you now the way it tamed the west…

Feminism is waste of time for both men and women. It is the natural response of women who are good at wasting time and crying about alleged victimhood. Boo Hoo.
At 3:08 PM, NYMOM said…
You’re right, feminism is a waste of time which women wouldn’t need to waste time on if their brothers weren’t so selfish. As you don’t need laws passed when people are willing to do the right thing voluntarily…
It’s too bad isn’t it. That we must waste so much time forcing people to do the right thing when it would be so much easier and faster if they would just do it on their own.
So I agree with you actually.

Do you actually agree with this nymom fembot?
At 10:33 PM, Masculist Man said…
Nymom is an idiot. I’ve noticed that it is more women than men who have trouble conducting themselves without laws in place to make them do it. Like a typical femicunt, Nymom rambles on about male responsibility but avoids female responsibility or worse yet,female responsibility to men. Nymom sounds like just another entitlement bitch to me.

No I don’t believe he actually agrees with me. Yet unlike many of you and your buddies, he appears to believe in free speech…
AND if you don’t, then what are you doing on the internet????
