Taking advantage of a drunk girl has its own perks. Even if the girl gathers the courage to report it to her parents, to her relatives, even to the police, she will be looked down upon. That is the reason why most of such cases never come out of the curtains.
“It’s your own fault. You should not have been drinking.”
“What kind of girls go to clubs and drink? Only characterless ones.”
These are only a couple of toned down reactions of even the closed ones usually. In Indian society, drinking is sort of a taboo for the girls. It is perfectly fine if a guy is ordering his drink at a club or a bar but if his place is replaced by a girl, she is commonly referred to as a slut. The amusing thing is that most of such people can’t even acknowledge the gravity of the term they use.
There have been numerous cases where girls were raped while they were drunk. It has become an open window for some pathetic creatures of our society. “She’s drunk, no one would bother” is the first thought that comes to their minds.
Of course I do not support girls being so drunk that they lose consciousness but does that mean that it is fine to take advantage of a drunk girl?
Some common reactions of guys and even the elderlies of our society:
“Girls should not drink in the first place.”
Who gave you the right to decide what she should do and what not?
“Girls should stay within their own limits.”
Who are you to define a limit for a particular gender?
“Decent girls don’t drink.”
So decent guys should not drink as well?
We preach such thoughts to our younger ones. We say them again and again in front of the masses. But no one teaches those guys that raping a drunk girl does not shrinks the gravity of their heinous deed.
It is easy to throw the blame on a victim. No one can understand what a victim goes through. No one can think of the difficulties she faces in her life after the assault. No one can realize how painful it is to bear with the consequences except for her.
If you are reading this and you are against rapes, raise the voice. A crime is a crime whether it is done under any circumstances. Empathize the victims instead of blaming them.
Raping a Drunk Girl is Morally(IN) Correct.
