Women Equality.. not!

Despite living in a modern world and women have achieved equality, IMHO I think we are not there yet. The society itself vibrates the energy whereby women are still weaker and an object of their fancy. (When I say the society here, I’m referring to the leaders of the countries with power to do something that majority consists of men) They still do not punish severely the crimes against women.

Multiple Rape
For example, take a look at today’s papers. A man is sentenced a second time for raping for another 12 years and the defense ask for leniency since he is already serving another sentence for another rape.

This is what the defense counsel said, "Furthermore, he has been serving an 11-year jail term since December 2003 for a previous rape conviction in Teluk Intan, so I hope the court will consider giving him a lesser sentence.”

WHATT?? It means if you kill one person and serve time for it, when you kill a second person, you can get a discount for the sentence? Ridiculous!
Just because the overall statistics are slightly lower, the authorities can proudly imply that crime is better since less violent ones. There are still 3117 over young girls’ lives affected by horrible, perverted, sex-crazy men out there! Sad to say, many by their own family members who are suppose to protect you.

Blackmail Rape
If it happened to you or your loved one, would you say that? Take a look at this other case; a young girl befriended a man through SMS. Then he molested her and took nude pictures of her to blackmail her into having sex with him. Now she is pregnant.

First, the society will blame the parents for not keeping an eye on her.

Second, they will blame the girl for being “gatal” or dressing sexily or asking for trouble.

Third, the extremist group will start banning sms or even start imposing women on a strict a curfew or perhaps force women to cover up like a mummy.Hello? Why can’t the system do something severe to punish men themselves? Should it be that extreme till we inject drugs to subdue these men's sexual desires as suggested by a reader in the newspaper? Why must you blame the female or perhaps you really think we are the weaker sex? Why must we the society be so condemning to the victim and not supportive of her?

If the society was more supportive to victims, we could have stopped that incident at the nude pictures. After all, the victim will only feel embarrass over a few nude pictures and who knows, she might get famous with that just like what happened to many other “famous artist”. Now it’s even worse, she got rape and an unwanted pregnancy. What kind of a future will she get? What about that poor life in her womb despite his/her monstrous “father”?

David and Bathsheba
History shows the weakness of men from the early ages. Even King David himself was succumbed by his own desires when he saw Bathsheba bathing. When he saw that, he started plotting a way to get her even though she was married. He plotted to get her husband killed. The eye is the root of evil for men. The painting below is called "David and Bathsheba" painted by Lucas Cranach in the year 1526.Pornography
That is why, young children, parents don’t allow you to watch pornography. It really is for your own good and the people around you. You’ll start fantasizing and getting ideas about girls, women and men! One day, when you can’t control yourself, you’ll act out your fantasies.

Robbery and Rape
In fact, our society is getting creepier by the minute. I have heard of many robberies being done in daylight near the shops around my office area. Even though there are CCTVs, they boldly walk in to rob your shop with all your workers around.
They are so desperate that they do go for men to rape them since no “weaker sex” is around. Just because statistics doesn’t show it is reported, it does not mean there is no such case. Men normally don’t report such cases.

My friend told me her guy friend got robbed in his shop and then raped by men who did awful things to him which she didn’t want to mention to me. She only said they bit him…. Let your own imagination do the talking.

What rights do we have as women when the men of this world condone such indecent behaviours with reasonable punishment and cover-up? We are still not an equal. Women still walk in fear by themselves in daylight or even the basement carpark. (Remember the Canny Ong's case?)

Final note
Since our society loves statistics and big numbers, we only come together as one to collect funds for disaster like tsunami or earthquakes, etc. What about the other statistics which are not compiled together through daily deaths from starvation, murder, rape, torture and so forth? These lives (and not numbers) are being ignored daily. The world is being attack by such evil crimes every second. Not just a sudden major natural disaster.

With my one voice, I plead one person at a time. Every life counts, women or men, child or unwanted child. Our body is just a physical vessel. Do not succumb to the devil temptations to satisfy your bodily desires. It’s just temporal and makes you want more. It does not truly satisfy your true needs. Attempts to enlighten the society are being done by ERA Consumer Malaysia through a book entitled ‘Rapist & Rape – Who & Why’,

Indeed, you will ruin the lives of many other people here on earth and on judgment day, I pray God will have mercy on you when you finally face the wrath of God.

Below is the painting "Last Judgement" by Michelangelo.
