Reasons why women are attacked, molested and raped in India: tales from where one grey cell is time-shared by several politicians – a complilation by Shefaly Yogendra on Quora
1. Men eat chowmein (yes, you read that right) which causes hormonal imbalances leading to the “urge” to rape.
2. Girls have mobile phones, do not wear proper clothes and do not cover their heads.
3. Girls are not being married off while minor or young.
[Edit : China is not far behind India on this comment. I read this recent article in NY Times on China’s “Leftover” Women (a term used for single professional women over 27). This piece was quoted on the website of China’s state feminist agency, the All-China Women’s Federation on “leftover women.”]
4. This gem from the female Chief Minister of West Bengal – Momota Didi – “women and men mingle freely”!
Of course, men are totally blameless, innocent and unconditionally respectful towards women.

Here’s another one;
And you thought “legitimate rape” was an American senator’s gaffe? :-/. The Delhi Police here clearly outlines six reasons why women in this country deserve to get raped. Some almost ask for it, they say.

These idiots are the so-called protectors of law. These demented, ill informed, ignorant, biased, chauvinist idiots are supposed to be protecting women in the country? Sad.
A part of me is deeply saddened by these tasteless, stupid and ignorant comments coming from dimwits who are unfortunately running my country, in some capacity or the other. The citizen in me still manages to be hopeful, that someday all of this will change…someday it will.
But the woman in me is dejected that everyday I live and walk through a society that has has such disregard for its women. Probably more than dejected, I’m just really deeply enraged. Angry enough to want to slap a couple of these idiots – really just a tight, hard, full-throttle slap. Won’t change anything – but I’ll feel better.

Okay, after what I just read I should probably rename this post to “Why Women world-over Deserve to be Raped?”
The American counter-parts of our dimwit Indian politicians have topped the chowmein-rape comment with a Gift-From-God-Rape comment. I don’t have words anymore.
