Women are not "pure beings" to be worshipped, or vilified if they stray from that, but human beings with their own desires. #Poetry

Put on a pedestal
A symbol of nurture and purity
Of sweetness and naivety
She is glorified for either
Her domesticity or virginity
But deprived of her
Individuality and sexuality
She personifies compassion and endurance
Burdened with suffering and penance
Yet she is just a human being
With needs, wants and desires unseen
She likes to touch and to feel
And to fantasize with zeal
If she enjoys porn and sensuality,
Why must she feel guilty?
Her urges and desires,
Like smoldering fires,
Ebb and grow,
In a rhythmic flow,
Until a climax transpires
A moment of bliss
She pursues all on her own
A private pleasure
To be treasured alone
She isn’t a witch
or a bitch
or a freak with a twitch
She’s just a woman with an itch
Women get horny too
And guess what?
It’s not new
Girls it’s time to
Break free from this secret
And to fan the flames
Sans the guilt and the regret

My house-help asked excitedly, “I am going for wedding. Can you let me wear your red & black saree? To be honest I was stumped for a moment; I didn’t know what to say but I still said yes.
I lent a gorgeous saree to my house-help for a wedding in her family. Soon I stated getting questions if I would wear that saree again or if I was okay to be seen wearing the same saree my house-help was wearing?
We are all so conditioned to give our used clothes to our house-helps but are we okay to wear the clothes they were wearing?
A few days ago she came excitedly to me, “I am going for a family wedding. I want to wear your red & black saree, Ill wash and give it to you after the function. Please can you let me wear it?”
Beauty is a very clever, very evil capitalist tool. It traps those who have it into hanging on to it for dear life and those who don't into mutilating, torturing themselves to achieve the unachievable.
I recently wrote a piece about MP Shashi Tharoor’s tweet in which he had shared a pic with six women parliamentarians tagging them and saying “Who says the Lok Sabha isn’t an attractive place to work?”
There was a rash of comments on the post shared on Instagram, which ranged from “chill, it’s just a compliment” and “stop overthinking compliments”, to (worried) men lamenting about “these feminazi”.
Here’s my answer to all those comments.
We expect women to be willing objects of desire for men, but expect them to deny their own sexuality, wanting them to be 'pure'. That's isn't fair!

You are a ‘Sati Savitri’, ‘a sex bomb’ or a ‘whore’…When you put a woman into any of these categories, you deny the essential aspects of who she is … You make her all about just one thing –
Her Sexual desire!

Sex. One of the primal human urges. A need almost every person feels. The closest you can get to another person in physical ways, and if you’re one of the lucky ones, in mental and spiritual ways at the same time.
When I dug into our archives yesterday to pick the top 10 articles on this topic, I realised that we have done a ton of them, covering almost every aspect of women’s sexuality – right from sex education and talking to daughters about their sexuality and making them comfortable in it, to talking about consent and what is and what isn’t consent, to the violence women are subject to through denying them agency over their body, through objectifying them, through slut shaming them for their sexual choices, through the emotional violence visited upon them that makes them no more than a body.
