Just like the guy in the Metro who thinks it is his birth right to take candid shots of that girl’s cleavage that pops out when she bends down to pick up her book. In fact, every woman who flaunts her curves in a fitted dress and dares to reveal her legs is giving an open invite to men to come and pay their respects. Walk around town in an attire that displays even a hint of your cleavage and you’ll have a dozen pair of eyes boring through your dress, willing it to fall apart.
Didn’t our history of repeat offences teach you that anything’s that’s not covered invites appreciation of the lowest kind?
So, when Draupadi wears an outfit that reveals more than just her face, she should expect KATTI to run an OMG slideshow of her cleavage. And if she objects to it, it’s obviously well-timed to garner more publicity for her Fanny.
Look, I get it, it’s impossible to keep your eyes and cameras off a woman dressed ‘tantalizingly’. It becomes your duty to stare, take close-up shots and share them for the greater good of humanity. Isn’t it time women stopped overacting and accepted it as a compliment instead?
When I step out of my house wearing a figure hugging outfit, I am well aware that people will look. But there’s a difference between the look that makes you squirm and the look that makes you feel good. The difference between discreetly looking versus leering is the acknowledgement that the person in question is a person and not an object.
Maybe Draupadi outrage is just a publicity stunt, as KATTI would have us believe. Maybe her outrage about KATTI’s lack of decency is more of role-play. But the real issue here is not the genuineness of her outrage but a woman’s prerogative to decide what’s inappropriate and what’s not.
But, what they have yet to comprehend is the thin line that divides their OMG Deepika's cleavage show and the magazine photo shoots where she bares it all - it’s called consent.
