Sona Mohapatra: Normalising shaming of young women for attire encourages misogynistic behaviour

Singer Sona Mohapatra lately known as out social media customers who criticised Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira for sporting a bikini at her pool get together on her birthday. And since then, she has been coping with trolling so dangerous, that some have even dragged her mom into it.

As social media customers began commenting about Ira’s alternative of attire in presence of her dad and mom, Mohapatra got here ahead to slam patriarchy with a notice on Instagram, writing, “All the people outraging about Ira Khan’s choice of attire or linking it to what #AamirKhan said, did or didn’t in the past please note; she is 25. A free, thinking, adult woman. Is exercising her choices. Doesn’t need her dad’s approval or yours”.

Opening up about getting trolled for her publish, she says, “The 24/7 troll brigade in the last 24 hours in the garb of ‘sanskaari’ custodians of our ‘culture’ have showcased their own ‘sanskaar’ by asking me to pose naked in the public, then even extended this courtesy to my 70 year old mother, who has no voice or say in this conversation. All in the last 24 hours after I called out their sick mindset for trolling a young woman, whose birthday I attended this weekend”.

Since then, the 45-year-old has spent most of her time deleting such feedback and making use of filters on her web page, as she places, “All this emotional violence despite having the strongest profanity filters turned on in my pages, that I have been deleting crap continuously”.

Here, she mentions that you will need to name out such mentality to alter how women are handled within the society. “The last couple of days have also given us the horrifying news of gang rapes in various parts of the country. What’s the connection one wonders? Well, these horrific crimes came to light because the brave girls reported them, are seeking justice & not sweeping it under the carpet like hundreds do”.

That’s why you will need to name out such conversations, as a substitute of normalising it.

“Even normalising such trolling and shaming of young women for their choice in attire on the Internet only strengthens and encourages a**h*les and misogynistic behaviour not only online but in real life too. Because, in the end, this online, sick behaviour is nothing but a mirror of the reality of the mindset’s in society,” she ends, whereas emphasising to maintain the dialog in opposition to this mentality going.
