#MeToo – But I’m Not A Woman!…

The #MeToo campaign has again taken the limelight. Many women coming forward to tell the nightmares they’ve been through. We as a third-person watching it put our judgement giving sympathy to a particular gender. We don’t even try to understand another side of the story. We spoke of gender equality, so justice must be served in that way only. In our society, a man is guilty until proven innocent and a woman is innocent until proven guilty. I genuinely feel that justice need to be served to the one holding the truth.
The saddest and most unheard truth is men too get harassed. If you go and check the stats of male sexual harassments, you will be shocked. Men also get harassed right from the teenage till to the workplace. Men do go through all this and the worst thing is they can’t even come up to complain because they know that it’ll be the only who will be taken as a guilty. We have developed a mentality of a soft corner for gender in such cases. But this needs to be changed. Every man should stand by the women in such case and every woman should do the same as well. That’s only how it’ll work. If we are against rape, then there shouldn’t be any discrimination of gender as the criminal can be anybody with sick mentality irrespective of gender. Women cases have strong law and which is a thing to be appreciated but there is no such strict law for men. We see only figures which are recorded. But there are so many cases in which the victim don’t even dare to report because of the fear of getting proven guilty. This need to change. Nobody should live with this fear. Men and women are made by god. God made us to support each other through thicks and thins. But we end up taking the easiest judgement and assumption proving the innocent guilty. Rather if we stay by the side of truth to the best of our knowledge then only justice will have some value. Justice comes only with a fight and we need to stick together for the right. We, men and women together can eradicate this. The only thing we need is to support each other and fight for the right!…
