Now Sonam Kapoor has said that elitist women think male-bashing is true feminism. The hidden meaning that we understand from this statement is the elitist women think male-bashing is their empowerment –
She said, and I quote “Elitist women have always had wrong ideas about feminism. They think male-bashing… hating men…makes you a true feminist. I don’t have to make a video to voice my opinions. My actions have always spoken louder than my words.”
We understand that when Deepika Padukone makes a video “My Choice” or Madhuri Dixit says bearded men are dirty in her view while she dated only bearded men in her life or she says “ let’s teach our boys not to make women cry, or Nandita Das says “all men are potential rapists” we actually know what is playing in the back of their mind. They want to show others that they are true feminists who are empowered enough to disobey patriarchy by putting it down.
So should we as men rejoice that an actress is openly confessing what’s wrong in feminism and why they give those male-bashing statements? Well, not really. Especially when we know sometime back Sonam Kapoor herself has said –
If you are wondering why this sudden change in her mind, you need to read this news and understand how their ranking system works –
Once you know that the more one actress is discussed on social media, the more one is searched online or the more headlines one can make or fan the following one gets on social media actually contributes to their ranking and eventually the money they make; then you will know such statements by our actresses are made ONLY for money and without any social change in mind.
She earlier said “men bring negativity” because then the feminism concept of male hating was hot and no one used to bother about such negative statements. So it was COOL for her to make such a statement and be famous.
Today, Deepika had understood what negativity she had created by making the My Choice video. Even Madhuri’s message that men become violent because they are asked to control their emotions and instead of telling them ‘not to cry’ we should tell them ‘not to make women cry’ was not well taken. Madhuri had earlier faced the flak for acting in Gulaab Gang as well. That movie was not accepted by the audience and it was boycotted by all.
Today after Deepika’s video anti-feminism and egalitarianism is high on social agenda. Feminism is completely exposed as a movement of male hatred, female chauvinism, lesbianism, bigotry and immoral behaviour thanks to the latest feminist actions.
So when Sonam Kapoor saw the first chance of upholding egalitarianism in a way to show male-bashing is not needed to be empowered, she has just used that to be on top of everyone’s discussion. Men no longer bring negativity to her. We understand it is all about keeping their ranking and business going. None of them cares about feminism or empowerment or any social change. They just need the money and need to be on top of our minds so that their business continues. This once again confirms we should not bother about what these celebrities say. They are not concerned about any real issues.
