Dissecting - My Choice...


There we go! :) Any good thing and we are ready to retaliate tagging it under the unnecessary tags of useless feminism tactics! Let me do a reverse engineering. Consider the men of India! Forget women.. Please! Women are not important here. Let’s concentrate on men! Now line by line.. Concentrate!
My body, my mind, my choice
No one has a problem with a man who has unkempt looks, shabby clothes. The mind of men is respected more, than that of women. Has been so, always. The decision maker of the house – man. The one who gives permission to the women of the house – man. The one who controls the finances – man. The one who uses his mind – the man! Their mind, their choice!
How do you look at a woman with hair on her arms, face and legs, wearing short clothes and walking openly on the street?

To wear the clothes I like; even if my spirit roams naked
He wears whatever he likes. Irrespective of his chicken legs, irrespective of how clearly his underwear appears from the shorts, they roam around displaying their attitude. Because they have nothing to hide. They can roam without t-shirts, because the season demands. They can sleep naked, because it’s comfortable! It’s their choice.
How do you look at women who wear bikinis on the beach?
My choice; to be a size 0 or a size 15
A man can be 100kgs and still demand a slim fair bride. A man can eat and drink beer merrily to aid his paunch. His choice!
Would you marry a fat woman?
They don’t have a size for my spirit, and never will
To use cotton and silk to trap my soul is to believe that you can halt the expansion of the universe
Or capture sunlight in the palm of your hand
Your mind is caged, let it free
My body is not
Let it be
My choice
Little boys have their thoughts caged. They have the same fears and same doubts as girls do. But they are told that they are super humans. They are given an extra piece of chocolate an extra glass of milk. And even if it can’t be their choice, it is. Most of the times! How many of us tell our little girls that she can fly an aeroplane, or become a police officer or become a superwoman? Why do we give them Barbie dolls and kitchen sets to play with?
To marry, or not to marry
If am man remains unmarried, he is a sanyasi. A man having a bunch of girlfriends has a great social life! He is ideal. He is earning. He is living independently. His choice!
Would you stop questioning a woman who is 40 and not married? Could it be true that she is not a whore or an escort either?
To have sex before marriage, to have sex out of marriage, or to not have sex
My choice
Sex is just a natural need for men. Women can't have that. Like masturbation is boring after a certain age, it is essential to have sex. They do or do not. There is no judgment. It’s their choice!
Isn't sex a natural, physical need of women too? What’s wrong if they have sex before or after marriage?
To love temporarily, or to lust forever
My choice
Men may lust. And it is termed as love. Men may love, and may never lust. It is certainly their choice.
Why is a woman expected to mix the concepts of love and lust. Why is it assumed that if she loves a man, she will readily sleep with him?
To love a man, or a woman, or both
Remember; you are my choice, I’m not your privilege
A man can love one woman. Two. Three at a time. A man has spoiled many lives loving the mother wife and sister at the same time.
Why are women expected to love just her man and her kids and no one else?
What’s wrong, if a man loves a man. What’s wrong if a woman loves a woman?
It’s certainly every human’s choice!
The bindi on my forehead, the ring on my finger, adding your surname to mine, they’re all ornaments and can be replaced
My love for you cannot, so treasure that
Why does a relationship need to be in bondage? Or why does it need a validation. Are bindi, rings or mangalsutras sign of happy marriage? Love is. Happiness is.
Where is love?
My choice; to come home when I want
Don’t be upset if I come home at 4am
Don’t be fooled if I come home at 6pm,
Men can come late from work. They can have busy schedules. And they are considered to be working hard for the family. What would you think if a woman comes late? Is she necessarily partying. Even if she is, what is wrong?
My choice; to have your baby or not
Why do men pressurize women for sex, without precaution. And insist on abortion, if they are unable to manage the responsibility. Why is sex for pleasure for men and not for women?
Why can't a woman decide that she doesn't want to have the baby?
To pick you from 7 billion choices or not
So don’t get cocky
Why do men expect that they will get any girl? Why is there so much ego?
My pleasure might be your pain
My songs, your noise
My order, your anarchy
Your sins, my virtues
My choices are like my fingerprints
They make me unique
I am the tree of the forest
I am the snowflake not the snowfall
You are the snowflake
Wake up
Get out of the shit storm
I choose to empathize
Or to be indifferent
I choose to be different
And so the woman decides to empathize. She accepts you the way you are, dear men.
And all she tells you is… She is as powerful as the universe. Vast. Nothing can bind her. And she has the right to choose. She has the right.. And she can. But she slows down for you. Walks a little behind so that you can lead, but give her a chance to fly too! Because she has that power. And how far can that be contained?
I am the universe
Infinite in every direction
This is my choice
 After years of confinement, if women want to make a choice, what is wrong? Wouldn't you do the same?
When there are women who are trying to break free, take decisions for themselves, trying to live a life that any human has the right to live, why is she considered to be a rebel? A feminist, wrongly so? Why is she tagged as someone who is taking the men down?
Nowhere, is she trying to demean the men in her life. She is only expressing what she wants.. How she wants to soar, break free, live, and feel.
Just like every human has the right to breathe, so does she.
In the perfect world, there is no right and no wrong!
We respect the men who empower these women. Without them, they wouldn't be able to make these choices!
I support this initiative. It's my choice. If you don't I respect yours!
