Patriarchy is hard on boys and men too - they are stereotyped too, and trapped in gender roles some might not want. After all, not all boys are bad boys!
Patriarchy is hard on boys and men too – they are stereotyped too, and trapped in gender roles some might not want. After all, not all boys are bad boys!
A girl’s story is written and read by many. But life is not easy for anyone, not even for boys. This piece below is just a perception which should be given some weightage as there’s a possibility for everything.
I see the world,
Spinning around a woman’s life
Her selection, her pride
Her safety, her right
There’s no provision for me to prevent
It’s always their fight.
They say every guy is not the same
You can find one who is different
But no one ever tries
They never give anyone a chance
So how can I prove, I am that Exception?
It’s not a movie,
No one can see it in my eyes.
I never want to hurt anyone,
I have never done any harm.
I never tease, I never stare
When I see a girl…
It’s just because I admire.
I get cursed everyday
Every day, by a different girl
They all think my thoughts are impure
Though I never spoke a word
It’s not written on my face
It’s something pre-decided
Maybe it’s my fate
I got to bear the consequences
Because of wrong done by the male-race.
A girl get teased by some other guy
And I get to bear the pain all my life.
I could have been spared
There are some who are…
They are the ones who are smart or rich
How can I be spared?
Middle class, dark complexion, average guy
But does that mean I am not even worth a try.
Not only females have a burdened life
I got to support my family,
I am hearing this since I was a child
That I am their only hope, I have to provide
I have to protect my sister
Got to pick her and drop her everyday
But I can’t drop my female-friend
Because it would somehow spoil my family’s pride,
And it’s a long chain of how it can affect my sister’s married life
I also got to think everyday…
What that world will say if I got a girl by my side
Who is just a friend by the way…
But for society this is not right.
I didn’t get the girl I like because I am not smart
And I got beaten up, when I even tried.
I also feel my life is miserable
I got a job that I hate
I can’t make excuse of getting late
Coz I am not a girl, I’m not gonna get raped!?
My parents are all over my head
They want me to get married
But every girl wants a guy with a flat tummy
They love vampires but are scared of a normal guy!!!
Everyone sees me like I am strong
With no emotions inside
I also wanna cry, I also wanna share
I can’t always take it light
Boys are not meant to share and cry
Like they aren’t human
And I don’t have a girl too for that by my side
Just because I am not a girl
I am not spared by the plight of life.
But at the end of the day
I don’t wanna conquer the world
I just want to convey…
Don’t judge me
Just because I am a boy
I can be that ‘Exception’
Just let me try…

Chetan Bhagat had no business slut shaming Uorfi Javed or any other woman. If he wants to 'guide' young men in the 'right direction' then he should take accountability for his words.
Chetan Bhagat, one of India’s bestselling authors, thought it was an ingenious idea to slut-shame Uorfi Javed, an Indian actress and influencer, at the Sahitya Aaj Tak literature festival.
“Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits? On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.”
Uorfi Javed responded with a video on her Instagram stories calling out Bhagat’s bluff. She shared the screenshots of his previous chat conversations with Ira Trivedi, author and yoga instructor, which came to light during the #MeToo movement.
While boys are taught to naturally own the space they enter, girls are taught to give up, to accommodate, to adjust since "it is their primary responsibility to keep families and relations together."
Yesterday, I was watching these 4 young girls around 16 – 17 years old play badminton. They were having fun, goofing around with all 4 of them equally involved in the game.
In some time two of their male friends joined them, and as part of round robin, the 2 boys replaced two of the girls. All good.
As the play continued, I started noticing a change in the way the game was being played. The shuttle was played most of the times between the two boys and there was a sense of competition and aggression brought in. The other 2 girls playing soon starting losing interest in the game as they hardly got any game time. Even if the shuttle came towards them, the boy in their team would move and play that shot. They soon moved to the sidelines as the boys continued to play.
